Inmanta NV is a KU Leuven spin-off, emerging from the imec-DistriNet research group. It is founded in 2016 by 3 PhDs in computer science and prof. Wouter Joosen. The company combines more than 10 years of research with the founders’ world-class expertise in cloud computing, software engineering, systems management and monitoring.
Before starting the company, the founders did many projects in collaboration with industry. They observed that companies lack a proper management solution for cloud computing or other large ICT infrastructures. The absence of such a solution creates much complexity and results in a waste of time and resources. Inmanta uses a novel approach to tackle this major problem.
