HOUSTON, January 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The Software Intecracy company has organised a presentation of the revolutionary PLAVVY software platform for rapid web-based application development at the office of the Volia Software U.S. IT services company located in Houston (TX). PLAVVY platform supports the full development cycle, from the description of the domain model to automatically generated user interface.
According to the presentation, PLAVVY platform enables IT professionals to develop solutions much faster and thus cheaper comparing to the traditional approach. The range of tasks PLAVVY solves is almost unlimited. This includes the development of collaboration infrastructure, "single window", business intelligence solutions, centralized file storage, business process management and service-oriented architectures, as well as many other specific business tasks.
PLAVVY platform allows to create document-based systems relevant to ECM concepts (Enterprise Content Management), supporting the full documents lifecycle, from preparation of project documents and templates to document storage, ensuring the functions of an electronic archive.
The specialists from the Intecracy Group Consortium, an international consortium of Information & Communication Technology companies, have been working on platform localization and adaptation to the requirements of Ukrainian legislation by the order of Ukrainian partnering company. The work resulted in creating a new solution - UnityBase. The first result of the UnityBase implementation was the electronic document management system of the new generation - UnityBase.M3.
The PLAVVY platform benefits include:
- Performance. PLAVVY provides an industrial level of performance. During the presentation the Intecracy Group specialists provided an example of embedded solution. The system worked well with 5,000 concurrent users accessing it, processing more than 100,000 documents per month. The server load at the same time remained low, thus saving significant amounts on "hardware" rent.
- Low development costs. The platform is based on the "rapid application development - RAD" concept. It provides a set of tools allowing creating an application using only visual interface. Further development of these applications does not require developers, as the system administrator can make changes in the system depending on constantly changing business needs.
- File storage. PLAVVY allows to store files in the database (the system supports all major databases - PostgreSQL, SQLSERVER, Oracle and others) and in the file system. The platform supports over 50 different file conversion formats.
- User Mobility. Access to the system can be arranged anywhere in the world due to the integrated mobile client.
- Full support for cloud technologies. The platform provides full support for cloud technologies to create applications using a web-interface.
- Code reuse. Platform includes a set of ready-to-use modules, including "administration", "organizational structure", "directories" (more than 50 different types - contractors, banks, people and so on), "workflow" and much more.
- Internationalization. PLAVVY supports full localization of applications and data. Interface languages and data are tied to the user, enabling users from different language groups to simultaneously use the system.
- Multiplatform. It does not matter for PLAVVY which operating system is installed on your computer (Windows, Linux, UNIX etc.) as the work is done through the web-interface.
- Administration and security. The system provides flexible adjustment of the access level to various information and functionality based on the organizational structure, user roles and other access policies. Several mechanisms are used to authenticate users, including integration with LDAP, support of Kerberos, two-factor authentication and authorization on the basis of electronic digital signature (EDS). The platform provides optional encryption of traffic between client and server using elliptical cryptography tools.
According to the Gartner Group: "Corporations are now finding that work organized stepwise incurs unavoidable delays and errors as paper is handed off from person to person and unit to unit…IT is the single most powerful tool for breaking traditional assumptions and rules about business, and it is the tool that makes new ways of operation possible." With the presentation of PLAVVY platform the Software Intecracy supported its own statement that the most revolutionary and successful change in IT business practices today is the Rapid Application Development.

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

No matter how well-built your applications are, countless issues can cause performance problems, putting the platforms they are running on under scrutiny. If you've moved to Node.js to power your applications, you may be at risk of these issues calling your choice into question. How do you identify vulnerabilities and mitigate risk to take the focus off troubleshooting the technology and back where it belongs, on innovation? There is no doubt that Node.js is one of today's leading platforms of ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?
"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.
They are not.
One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
