Omega 365’s history starts in 1987, with the foundation of Futura Datasenter AS in Ølen. The company started up selling personal computers and accessories. Futura Datasenter gradually turned more into a production company, producing hardware and software for various groups.
On the hardware side, developing computer cards for Atari machines was the most advanced production in terms of technology at this stage. On the software side, Omega had developed a software solution for connecting and drawing information from NTB (Norsk Telegrambyrå – the biggest Norwegian news agency). The solution was widely used both domestically and abroad.
Futura Datasenter continued its emphasis in the software development field and developed numerous database applications for businesses of all sizes. In this process, Futura Datasenter acquired a substantial competence and know-how in successfully applying database tools to solve corporate challenges.
In 1991, it was decided to take this competence and know-how one step further. The ownership structure was re-organized, and the name was changed to Omega. Since the 1991 upstart, Omega 365 has mainly been involved in the oil & gas industry, supplying highly qualified personnel and developing software solutions.
In 1993, the product concept Pims was introduced and eventually evolved to provide all levels in a project organisation with a tool to assist in controlling the various aspects of project execution. Pims became Omega’s main product when Statoil chose Omega to develop its project control system (later to be known as Pims).
