It all started in 2009 with our CTO and founder, Allard Buijze.
As a software architect, Allard specialized in software scalability. Recurring performance and flexibility issues convinced him of the need for a solid domain model to build high-performance applications.
Allard embraced event-driven systems theory and created the open-source Axon Framework. His goal was to make flexible, high-performance software simpler to produce and available to all.
Building on this, eight years later, AxonIQ was founded to develop enterprise-class tools, techniques, and services with support for event-driven organizations.
Today Axon Framework and Axon Server enable a fast-growing international ecosystem of organizations to develop scalable, high-performance applications for their use cases.
The AxonIQ team of developers, architects, and specialists supports and allows customers to build world-class applications and develop world-class applications and services.
With millions of downloads and thousands of GitHub stars, the original Axon Framework has grown into a whole ecosystem of event-driven tools, techniques, and services maintained and curated under the expert supervision and guidance of AxonIQ.
