Peter Shikli founded
BusinessWare in 1984 to develop custom database applications for accounting and
operations management, including BusinessWare for VARs, a comprehensive
commercial software package for value-added computer retailers.
In 1994, we re-engineered our company to focus on the
web, leveraging our database experience to provide DB-web connections. While
most web developers promoted the creative multimedia capabilities of the web,
we focused instead on the critical need for head-down programmers with a
business background to automate business processes online. In 2002, we renamed
ourselves Bizware Online Applications to reflect our dedication to this
Since then, we have seen DB-web connections explode
into e-commerce, online exchanges, web services, the wholesale migration of
applications from the desktop to the internet, and many other opportunities to
empower business as never before.
