About Us

Enabling the Seamless Digital Enterprise

Founded in 2000 in the San Francisco Bay Area, NextAxiom® created the now proven hyperService® platform that powers business critical software solutions for the world's largest enterprises, including the 'zero defect' environment for global nuclear utilities.

The NextAxiom® hyperService® Platform creates a graphical virtualization layer on top of an organization's IT software stack where functions from different business applications and systems (including middleware) look and combine as if they belonged to a single, location-transparent application running inside of a virtual machine.

This radically simplifies integration and software application development and unlocks the functionality trapped in information silos for easy reuse with new user experiences such as enterprise mobility.
