The company also played a role in the growth of the enterprise portal space. In the early 1990s, it invented a real-time, user-personalized, thick-client portal product called MarketSheet, which was used pervasively in securities trading rooms in the financial industry. When the web revolution arrived, this product provided a vision that was subsequently implemented in the web world as user-configurable portals such as My Yahoo!(TM). The company thinned down the front end for its own portal products to applets and finally to DHTML.
JoMei Chang founded the company as Teknekron Software Systems in 1985 as a subsidiary of technology incubator Teknekron Corporation. Dale Skeen invented the patented Subject Based Addressing technology and built the Teknekron Information Bus and a Market Data Delivery System solution that also included products like MarketSheet (a kind of thick-client portal). Dale Skeen is Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Vitria. This technology was revolutionary, and played a major role in the drive to replace "green screens" and digitize securities trading floors world-wide. In addition to Subject Based Addressing, TIB included many other common messaging concepts that have since become widely accepted, and as hardware and operating systems evolved, the TIB evolved from using broadcast messaging to using IP multicast groups.
The company subsequently diversified, delivering software solutions first to energy and high-tech manufacturing customers, and then to customers in other sectors.
