Solutions > Fast Track Development Process
Our fast track approach to development integrates your existing, disparate systems with our modules and processes.
Our application modules are designed with front end processes i.e. rules engines to integrate with your existing legacy structure. Integration can be a huge part of implementation and our business logic components enable you to configure business rules, input and output data field structures, etc.
Plug and Play system architecture lets you integrate well with existing in-house solutions: Deploy at your own pace while keeping selected existing solutions. Functionality can be delivered in groups that support immediate business cases. Additional features are delivered incrementally over a specified number of milestones.
Frameworks, engines, components
The Plug and Play system architecture is based on open source frameworks. The Model-View-Controller application framework allows for the separation of the business logic from the presentation logic to facilitate the fast track development process. The Business Processes can be implemented separately from User Interaction to allow for independent definition, construction and maintenance.
The engines deliver flexibility to support specialized system functions. This provides for rapid customization both initially and for ongoing changes to the business requirements:
:: Rules Engine: Configure business rules and attach them to product categories. Execute rules based on metadata definitions.
:: Validation Engine: Complex syntax data validation ensures accuracy and speed.
:: Presentation Engine: Dynamic user interface creation with support for DHTML, XML dynamic data formatting.
System Engines work with standard components to provide support for database access and Legacy Systems communication.
:: Customized RUP Development Methodology: Rapid development with documentation and code generation.
:: Product Development Management based on scorecards: Well defined modules with accountability for deliverables firmly established. Implementation roadmap with sufficient process checkpoint to ensure smooth progress.
:: Plug and Play system architecture lets you integrate well with existing in-house solutions: Deploy at your own pace while keeping selected existing solutions.
:: ASP and OEM system configuration: Either model or a combination.
:: Scope management - staged delivery. Functionality can be delivered in groups that support immediate business cases. Additional features are delivered incrementally over a specified number of milestones.
We use the right combination of "off the shelf" components with customization to enable faster and more efficient deployment. Our solutions adhere to non-proprietary, open standards to increase flexibility and options: C++/Java (CORBA, J2EE), presentation standards (DHTML, HTTP, and SMTP, security (Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and 3DES), J2EE Tag language.
Data can be retrieved from data streams both on and off line. Publishing standards support includes DHTML, Adobe PDF, OFX, ASCII and XML. UNIX/NT operating platforms are supported.
The open architecture design ensures the ability to leverage all of the sophisticated application management tools and achieve enterprise-class performance, scalability, portability, and extensibility. It speeds implementation, eases integration with existing corporate standards on a robust platform capable of handling very high transaction volumes.
