Zyxware is pronounced as "Sixware"

In phonetic notation this is written as

zikswe(ə)r

The name was coined by using three common alphabets used for naming variables in mathematics - x, y and z - and merging them with the 'ware' in software or hardware creating a new word that rhymes with both software and hardware. The letters x, y and z are also important in mathematics as the names of the three axes used to define 3 dimensional space.

The name was originally coined in 1997 when 5 friends from College of Engineering Trivandrum, started a partnership under the name 'Zyxware' and got into creating software utilities for the local market. The group expanded to seven later with the addition of two more partners. One of these seven friends (Anoop John) went ahead and registered 'Zyxware Technologies' as a firm in 2006.

The story about the origin of Zyxware Technologies has two parts. One is about how the name came about, another is about how the vision came about. Here is how it all materialized. In 1997 five friends (Anoop John, Joseph Anish Alex, Mahesh K., R. G. Kiran, Sumesh Shenoy R.) studying at College of Engineering Trivandrum decides to start a software company of their own. They were all good at math and they played around with the variables x,y,z and came up with the word Zyxware. The name was coined by one of the five friends namely R. G. Kiran. It sounded cool, rhymed with software and was a new word and there were no other companies with the same name. The original 'founders' liked the name and thus was the original Zyxware founded. For the next 4 years while they were still at college they created a lot of different software utilities for themselves and distributed this among their friends and relatives. The name Zyxware got pretty popular among the computer students in the college through the different applications and utilities that were distributed. One of the applications, an internet usage monitor - ilog monitor - got so popular that it became the de-facto internet usage monitoring application for students in the college. In 2001 these five friends completed their degree course and went their different ways hoping to come back together and build Zyxware into a full fledged software company. Discussions around products and services ideas continued over the internet and phone. During this period two more friends were inducted as 'Zyxware Founders' viz Cherry George Mathew and Abraham George. In 2004, one of the 'founders' viz Anoop John announced to the rest that he has communicated to his employer that he would be quitting his job at the end of 2005 and that he would be coming back to India to set up Zyxware formally. The domain name zyxware.com was registered in 2004 by Anoop John. Anoop John put in his papers towards the end of 2005 and came back to India in 2006 Feb and started Zyxware formally by Jun 2006. The firm was registered with the name Zyxware Technologies. Anoop had always wanted to start his own company ever since grade 4. The reasons were quite immature at that point though and was primarily around the ability to decide ones salaries, holidays, work timings etc given what he saw of the restrictions faced by his parents who were employed with the government and a private sector bank. By the time Anoop was doing his engineering degree his driving motto was "Be the change you wish to see in the world" and this became the key motivation for him to start his own company replacing the original convenience reason. A company was looked at as a means to drive the change he wished to see in the world by generating resources, attracting people with similar vision and providing a platform to launch initiatives that can contribute towards the change. By 2006 the journey towards achieving that vision started formally with the registration of Zyxware Technologies. Zyxware Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.
