The Omni Show: The Story of OmniPlan

by Brent Simmons on March 20, 2019

In the latest episode we talk with Ken Case, CEO; Ainsley Bourque Olson, OmniPlan PM; and Greg Titus, OmniPlan Engineer, about OmniPlan — how it started and where it’s going.

Are those beautiful Gantt charts rendered by code found in the wrecked spaceship of an extraterrestrial? Are we still using technology we found in ancient computers from the lost continent of Atlantis? What connection, if any, does OmniPlan have to the Bermuda Triangle?

We answer none of those questions. We tell the real story, infinitely more mysterious, about Greg thinking it would be fun to work on resource scheduling algorithms. Rational explanations for this elude us — but we’re sure glad he did, anyway. :)

Enjoy!
