Tikal Software Industries was a private software services company that provided software development services and employee outsourcing.
Tikal specialized in Power Builder development. All of its products were based on a custom library that extended Power Builder. This library was also sold as a product.
I was initially hired as a software developer with an explicit and mutually agreed intention to shift to systems analysis. The company gave me early exposure to UML and we were early adopters. I developed and implemented a methodological approach that yielded elaborate documents that captured software requirements. I eventually trained and headed a team of 3 systems analysts. Our services were offered both within software development contracts and as a stand-alone service that was offered to customers.
