Orama is just getting started…

Orama is just getting started…

Orama's journey began with Lyra, an open-source project incubated at NearForm, a European consultancy. Initially a browser-based search engine, Lyra caught the attention of NearForm's founder, Cian O’Maidin, who discerned its potential.


With strategic insight, O’Maidin recruited a seasoned business leader and encouraged the team to start a company, propelling the project's evolution into a full-fledged company.

Fueled by innovation, the team swiftly pivoted to develop Orama Cloud, a scalable solution. In fall 2023, Orama 2.0 debuted, announcing hybrid search capabilities and a robust cloud dashboard. Today, we are currently hard at work on AskOrama, poised to revolutionize the landscape as a full Answer Engine.
