In 2004, Novatium solutions evolved from the technology incubation center at IIT Madras. Founded on the vision to provide “Computing for the next billion users” Novatium went on to create –The Nova NetPC, a solution that made computing simple and affordable by using indigenous technology. The NetPC retailed at $100, disrupted the PC market by offering computing in a way that was simple & economical, with out compromising on user experience. Today, Novatium has a renewed vision of “building a context based computing experience for all”. With it’s Mobile device management platform – MCaaS and context based education solution – Edugrid, Novatium is on it’s way to realize this vision.
Novatium has worked with a number of State Governments to deploy efficient managed computing solutions on Tablets, Laptops, Desktop PCs and Mobiles. These projects included deployments of over 200,000 computing devices across the states of Chhattisgarh, Assam, Orissa and Tamil Nadu. The company’s deployments included collaborative partners such as BSNL and other initiatives with MTNL, AirTel. Novatium also worked closely with Ericsson’s ‘Digital India’ initiative and has experience in other developing markets such as Mauritius with clients such as telecom powerhouse Mauritius Telecom.
To Provide A Superior And Convenient Computing Experience At Great Value.
To reach the above mentioned vision, we are focusing on two aspects. These are the two adjectives, superior and convenient, in the above mentioned Mission. We are creating a solution that is predictive and suggestive and hence enables user to discover new areas and activities that interest him/her. It is proactive and thus ensures that the user can be kept away from the dangers that is usually associated with many of the existing computing solutions.
It is flexible to ensure that each user gets and tunes the solution to fit in with his/her needs. It is a secure solution with consideration given to the fact that different users have different level of security. Thus it is superior from many aspects. The convenience comes from the fact that most of the above mentioned aspects and many of the other basic aspects happen automatically and does not require human intervention, neither the end user nor the administrators.
To enrich context based computing experiences for all
The basic intent of our vision is to create a unique and tailor-made computing experience for all our customers.
