Omondo was founded by a team of marketing and java developers professionals having a long and successfull work experience at Togethersoft, Versant, Software AG. The first team was set up in Paris in 2001.
Then a german office was started in 2004.
In 2006, all the java codding was transfered to Omondo Tunisia, who is currently the larger Omondo office. The codding in France was also stopped. The French Java team has then created Soyatec using some source code which has been offered for free by Omondo in 2006. Only some none strategic has been given, and not the Omondo core which is only the Omondo property.
A new office is currently being open in London, and will become the new Omondo headquarter in October 2007.
