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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
