Attenda makes history with Miomi
Manages new time browsing website
Recently named as one of Microsoft's five UK tech companies to watch in 2008 and heralded as the UK's answer to Skype and YouTube, Miomi.com has the ambition to democratise time and history by capturing the entire world's memories online.
Miomi is a new website that offers a completely new way of viewing and sharing content on the Internet by enabling users to browse through time and make a personal mark on history. Miomi is unique in that it allows people to make history by uploading details of their lives (including photos, videos, audio) as 'moments' which they can then link into timelines to tell a story. Featuring content from Microsoft Encarta(c), Wikipedia and multiple news sources, it provides historical and contemporary content that allows users to see their whole life in 'real world' context against a global backdrop of world events.
Attenda is implementing and managing the infrastructure to support Miomi's business critical website applications. The solution is based upon Microsoft technologies with an architecture designed to rapidly scale and flex, in the future, as site usage increases.
Already named one of the UK's top 25 Web 2.0 startups, Miomi is funded by Brightstation Ventures and is now heralded as the UK's answer to Skype and YouTube.
Commenting on the contract with Attenda, Jonny Crowe, CEO, Miomi says, "Our business has been founded on innovation and is set to grow rapidly, so we needed a partner that could support us as we grow." He continues, "We chose Attenda as our strategic partner for their reputation as a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, with an impressive client list and proven ability to deliver highly available, highly secure web applications managed services against a business-led service level agreement."
