Sigma Star Systems was founded in 2003 when Jesse Gumm
left his position at Cayen Systems
as lead developer of their flagship system, Academics Plus, a web application for tracking attendance for after-school activities and tutoring programs.
The first planned Sigma Star product was a system called eSonar
, a website monitoring service, which never launched, and soon Sigma Star Systems turned into a software consultancy firm, specializing in web application development and general I.T. services for small businesses.
While we continue to provide these services, we've launched a handful of web-based services, which you can see on our products page
. Our first major product launched in May of 2006 is our wildly successful DKPSystem.com
, a content management system built specifically for gaming guilds in Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games, such as the ever-popular World of Warcraft
. DKPSystem.com has been home to over 5,000 guilds.
In 2011, we launched the Sports League and Tournament Management System called BracketPal
. Initially with a strong presence in Milwaukee, we've expanded throughout the country through partnerships with the Rox Volleyball Series
and the Junior Volleyball Association
. In 2017, BracketPal was acquired by SportsEngine, Inc to be the spearhead of its beach volleyball initiative.
We specialize in development and programming in Erlang
, and can handle all aspects of the technology stack from the hardware, through the server configuration (Apache
), to the programming side.
In open source, Jesse is lead developer of the Nitrogen Web Framework
, one of the most popular and well known frameworks for full-stack Erlang web development.
