About Us

In 1997, founders Michael Burns and Hussein Patni formed Cosbit Technologies with a mission to handcraft custom web software to address specific business needs.


Since opening its doors in 1997, Cosbit’s head-count has grown to its current half-dozen, consisting of full-time, part-time, and contractor relationships.

Michael Burns

From a solid foundation of data-driven application development and an early interest in the Internet, Michael sought a way to create a service-driven technology firm focusing on integrating the power of modern computational systems with the information infrastructure available in the internet.

Before Cosbit, Michael dabbled with a university degree in Engineering Physics (interrupted by the gestation of Cosbit), as well as various computer technology gigs dating back to the mid-nineties.

Hussein Patni, B.Sc.

Hussein is a graduate of the University of Calgary’s Computer Science program, and a past President of the Computer Science Undergraduate Society.

Hussein has applied his real-world application development experience and novel data marshalling concepts in creating enterprise-level information management solutions for Cosbit’s clients.

Connected Process

Over the years, many of the custom solutions appeared to be in demand for a variety of different organizations to address similar business challenges. Michael and Hussein believe this common demand for well-thought-out, web-based software should be more affordable than a custom solution.

Connected Process embraces this concept and shares the knowledge built into its suite of products at an affordable price.
