MASSIVELY SCALING ARCHITECTURE
MASS is a collection of enhancements made to the encanvas platform to ensure that your app platform can scale to tens, if not hundreds, of applications and software robots. It’s about neat client-server loadings, thoughtful use of in-memory processing, replication and cloud containers, remote deployment support and a whole lot more. It means there are (almost) no technical limits to the scale of your deployment.
Encanvas was named after our ENterprise CANVAS application file format that is at the heart of our architecture. Think of a canvas as a ‘document format’ for web portal applications. It’s a useful building block for the whole or part of an application. Working with canvases is easy because they’re designed for citizen developers. Designers see no code or script so it’s easier to design better applications faster!
Encanvas started life as a mashups platform in the dot-com era which means it offers multi-threaded, multi-sourcing and multi-linking. All that means is you can harvest data from various platforms at the same time without sessions dropping off, then select specific rows from each source to blend together when creating a new application (clever huh!).
Designed with the needs of business analysts and citizen developers in mind, Encanvas Create is a codeless Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Codeless means designers see-no-code, and use-no-code. It’s power lies in its ability to address all aspects of creating an application, while separating ‘IT admin’ and ‘Look-and-Feel’ matters best dealt with in a holistic way by more expert IT professionals. Encanvas is designed for enterprise apps and enables delivery of complex apps.
Encanvas Ring-of-Steel (RoS) is a collection of data security features built into the encanvas enterprise software application architecture designed to deliver a safer environment for data. Features include, (1) fine-grained controls over data end-point access and privileges, (2) forensic validation testing of data in state (before it is moved or processed), (3) prevention controls to prohibit downloading or distribution, (4) anti-malware controls and, (5) anti-hacking controls.
Encanvas AppFabric makes it possible for enterprise-grade apps to be authored and deployed painlessly by creating an ecosystem for deploying and managing applications that is easy to manage, effortless to scale and uncompromizingly safe for data. Think of AppFabric as an AppStore for your business, but unlike an AppStore, AppFabric progressively builds a single-version-of-the-truth across your enterprise, placing more emphasis on thinking beyond departmental needs and objectives to foster maximum data value and to foster a data-driven culture.
Encanvas Global UX is a collection of User Experience features built into the encanvas enterprise software application architecture designed to maximize user experience and the provision of access to authored applications. It includes (1) Cross-browser support (2) look-and-feel templates and wizards to aid consistency, (3) use of in-memory balanced processing to optimize performance and responsiveness, (4) support for mobile and tablet and digital TV platforms and, (5) optimized memory-management for design elements.
VERSION ROLL BACK (VRB)
Encanvas Version Rollback is the technology used to maintain integrity between the encanvas platform and the apps you develop on it into perpetuity. What makes Encanvas VRB clever is it’s ability to achieve this no matter what you choose to do differently with your applications, and no matter what we do to improve encanvas. IT admins have the choice to determine when to adopt new features for each deployed canvas or application.
Our HyperDrive Plug-In lets you embed code, script, algorithms, DLLs, data visualizations, artificial intelligence and machine learning etc. into the encanvas framework. It means designers can easily expand the capabilities of encanvas and you don’t have to rely on out-of-the-box features to extend the possibilities of your apps!
Encanvas information Flow Designer Xtreem (iFX) is our vision for a hybrid ETL, RPA and iPaaS platform rolled into one. Encanvas iFX installs transform and load automation across your enterprise to take care of the jobs computers do best. This non-invasive software layer validates, cleanses, enriches, de-dupes, quarantines, matches, normalizes, uploads and splits data anyway you want it.
