We’ve known for a while that software is eating the world. The most vacuous thing you can tell someone about your company is that it’s a software company — every company is a software company. There are lots of ways that companies differentiate, but one of those ways is almost always in their applications. More developers are connecting more applications to more data for more users than ever before. We started Transposit for those developers.

Building Modern Applications

A little backstory…

A Common Goal

As EIRs at Sutter Hill, Tina and I started working with CIOs to understand their urgent problems. For what needs in the market could we develop new technical solutions? Naturally each CIO had a different perspective, but we started hearing some common themes:

Transposit

Our mission is to make applications simpler to build. Interesting applications require data. More data from more sources — spanning old/new, on-prem/cloud, etc — involves more overhead. Transposit seeks to eliminate the drudgery of working with data, to let developers focus on their core intent. Developers hate writing one-off solutions to the litany of issues that surround these data interactions. Solving these in a framework, building durable components is what fires us up. The full software lifecycle involves testing, deployment, monitoring, debugging, upgrade, and migration. Our goal is to create better facilities for all of these than would be economical for most development teams to build themselves.
