What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?  Many an entrepreneur has agonised over naming their company, product or invention.  I went through the same pain, identifying great word combinations only to find the domain names already taken.  I tried numerous combinations, but in the end I liked and settled on Analysis Logic.  This article shows the reasoning behind the name.

Where did the company name come from?

Sometimes I am asked where the company name came from and whether we do:

  1. Google Analytics?  No, we don’t.
  2. Data analytics?  Not really, yet.

So, it seems like I need to explain how the name came about.

What’s in a name?

Part 1 (Analysis): I am a very analytical thinker and have a long background in analysing problems to produce requirements and pragmatic workable solutions through to long term product roadmaps.  Analysis of the business requirements as well as technology suitability and marketplace trends is vital for the best outcomes.

Part 2 (Logic): I have been designing, developing and managing technology solutions from electronic interfacing of IT systems through software development to business IT infrastructure all my professional life.  Such technology must adhere to logical rules in order to operate and perform to the remit.

So, when I came to set-up my own technology company it seemed sensible to base it on what I am good at and what technology solutions must be (logical).

 

So, Name = Part 1 + Part 2 = Analysis Logic
