Software Division of ApplyingThought.com
Mr. George Thomas heads this Division. After completion of his Post Grad
uate studies in Bombay University, he worked as a Scientific Assistant i
n NRSA Hyderabad. Thereafter he changed his profession to join HCL in th
e Sales and Marketing Division. Exposure to the computer industry was a 
means of opening up a new horizon of possibilities. Those opportunities 
were acquired and harnessed at WANG, and Unisys abroad. Thereafter Mr. T
homas returned to India and after a stint with IDM ventured out on his o
wn. To his credit he has the experience of handling Marketing, Sales and
 Customer Support Activities for 17 long years in the industry, with som
e of the best established computer products and companies in the Industr
y. His exposure spreads across a large spectrum of application areas whi
ch include financial systems, Retailing, COSMOS (finite Element Methods)
, ERDAS (Image processing), ARC Info (Geographic Information System) RAC
AL REDAC (Electronic CAD) (Global Financial Architecture), Banking syste
m, Material Requisition Planning, Hotel Management systems, Market Resea
rch oriented requirements and a host of other applications areas. 
With WANG he was exposed to the best office, automation products and sys
tems in the Industry. During this period he had the facility to automate
 the back office systems at Gulf Air and Gulf Hotel, Bahrain. With Unisy
s his working knowledge of Banking systems, Financial Architectures, Net
working, ATMS and the use of 4GL were sharpened. With IDM, his exposure 
to complicated scientific applications and path breaking technologies li
ke Satellite Data Image processing and Geographic Information Systems ap
plications were skills he honed in on very emphatically.
In 1990, Mr. Thomas moved out of corporate life due to a health conditio
n and took to a more relaxed working environment. As consultant to Vishe
sh Technology Bangalore, he marketed and implemented the MRP Package to 
Proctor and Gamble. In 1991 he became consultant to Intellect Data Syste
ms Bangalore and contributed significantly to design, implementation and
 marketing of Property Management System. One of the major successes in 
this foray was the acceptance of the product by Comfort Inn group of Hot
els in India, and most of their establishments using this system country
wide. In 1993 Mr. Thomas floated his firm Peripheral Systems and took to
 preparation maintenance and management of databases in his work with In
dian Market Research Bureau, Bangalore. Most of the projects with Hindus
tan Lever, Eskayef , Tata Tea were handled through this outlet. With a d
etermination to do it better than everyone else, he did three of the maj
or assignments with IMRB - National Food Survey Project, Advertisement P
reviews and TV Popularity Rating.
The Software Division of ApplyingThought.com has moved into software dev
elopment as its main and full time activity. With 12 Engineers assigned 
to full time development we have completed two foreign assignments and a
re on the verge of completing a product for the Education segment.
During the course of our development activity, we have realised 
that never before has efficient management of information been more vita
l or more tediously 
difficult.
Some of the most difficult situations, responsible managers and companie
s face today in their daily routines is the availability of quality cons
cious staff. 
Whilst a number of companies have begun to outsource software developmen
t, there are quite a few companies who find this concept unacceptable or
 hazardous from an Accountability point of view. 
Further with newer and advanced technologies exploding in the market, it
 seems a perilous task to orient oneself to help decide what is relevant
 to ones environment and needs. For companies with a floating populatio
n of computer staff it seems unprofitable, unrewarding and at times frau
ght with disastrous Consequence to venture into large scale in house sof
tware development. 
We at the Software Division of ApplyingThought.com are alive to these si
tuations and have taken decisions to address such issues.
We believe that application software can be used as a technology tool to
 meet needs of an organization and when applied meticulously and in its 
entirety, have far reaching consequences. This could ease the working en
vironment and provide comfort to normal mundane tasks in a job, and help
 organization rely on less skilled and dependable staff to function norm
ally and effectively. 
We are primarily into Customized Application database development. Our f
ocus has been on the Visual Basic as Front end, MSSQL, MS Access as Back
end and the Microsoft Range of Products in Windows NT environment. We sp
ecialize in COM based Technology and are using Visual Modeler and Kancha
njunga (the latest release from Microsoft) extensively in our product/de
velopment and application 
We also work on JAVA, Oracle, and Developer 2000, Power Builder, Delphi 
and Visual C++. 
The average age of the development team is 25 years. This young, enthusi
astic and dynamic team is always rearing to go all those extra miles to 
bring cheer to our customers and deliver quality products complete with 
documentation. Software development has thus been an exciting, fulfillin
g and rewarding experience for the entire group. 
We are a tiny division numbering 12 regular staff and another 12 contrac
