Benefits

Composite Application Framework (CAF)

Rich Internet Applications

In a heterogeneous application environment, often a single interface to all business systems is missing. The results are: complexity in finding reliable data, low productivity of knowledge workers and high cost of changing or enhancing existing applications. The CAF offers one of the most advanced Rich Internet Application (RIA) frameworks currently available. CAF allows you to adopt a highly innovative process driven Web 2.0 application within your organization in a very safe and secure way.

Empowerment of knowledge workers

CAF provides a single view and personalized user interface framework for composite applications with a rich user experience. It consolidates and presents structured and unstructured information, operational data and human activities in a business process as one unified workplace. With CAF, knowledge workers can create rich composite internet applications and end-user mash-ups based on latest Web 2.0 User Interface technologies. By the use of modern standards like HTML, CSS, AJAX, XForms and SOAP, Interstage Business Operations Platform combines the advantages of an easy-to-deploy Web application with the performance and features of a rich desktop collaboration framework.

Business Process Management Suite - (BPMS)

Faster process optimization with BPMS

Changing business requirements make traditional development cycles risky and lengthy. Interstage Business Operations Platform BPMS enables organizations to improve their processes through very short, business driven optimization cycles.

Better Business and IT collaboration

Interstage Business Operations Platform BPMS lets business and IT work on exactly the same process model which always stays in sync. This shared vocabulary greatly improves alignment between business and IT, leading to faster and better process optimization and business process management.

BPMS in the Cloud

Traditional BPMS software is restricted to on-premise processes, while in today's economy business processes extend beyond departments and companies. Collaboration in the value chain using the online channel requires a new BPMS approach. The argument for BPMS in the Cloud will become more compelling as processes move off-premise. Interstage Business Operations Platform BPMS makes it possible to customize the external services a process consumes.

Middle-Out design paradigm

Interstage Business Operations Platform BPMS embraces the Middle-Out design paradigm where business and IT collaboratively define the backbone of a solution: the business process. The next step is to connect systems and people to this process and turn the specification into a fully working solution. Where most BPMS vendors satisfy business or IT, Interstage Business Operations Platform has the product breadth to satisfy both.

Innovative, solid BPMS

Interstage Business Operations Platform BPMS takes advantage of some of the latest internet innovations and standards. The result is a 100% browser-based BPMS product with a graphical and highly responsive user interface. In addition, Interstage Business Operations Platform BPMS offers enterprise-grade scalability, reliability, security and standards support.

Service Oriented Architecture

Web Services in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

There are various levels of abstractions within SOA depending on levels of business relevance and agility. Standard Web Services are the very basic level of abstraction which enables integration with other systems. This is the typical entry level for most companies embarking on a SOA initiative. As SOA adoption increases, additional business context information can be abstracted and consolidated into a Web Service which then becomes a "Business Service".

Single platform

Interstage Business Operations Platform offers a single platform providing end-to-end development, deployment and administration of Web Services in a SOA. It is a unique platform developed with Web Services and SOA from the ground up, ensuring the Web Service enablement of all artefacts needed in a composite application.

Where SOA Grid and ESB help

  • Re-use of existing systems is almost impossible. Huge sums of money have been invested in both IT infrastructure and applications, but the expected ROI has been disappointing. Leveraging current functionality could help increase the ROI on existing investments.
  • Needed flexibility cannot be obtained. The market requires quick responses to new demands. This means that IT environments need to be flexible as well.
  • Process improvements are difficult to implement. So far the IT infrastructure has dictated what is feasible and what is not, instead of the business. As a result, the necessary business process changes come around too slowly.

Interstage Business Operations Platform helps companies overcome these limitations. By using the Interstage Business Operations Platform SOA Grid, companies can build an effective, agile and future-proof Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Through its rich set of capabilities, the Interstage Business Operations Platform ESB SOA Grid lets you expand your business potential by leveraging previous investments and extending their Return on Investment.

Real-time information

Via Interstage Business Operations Platform SOA Grid and ESB, a real-time interoperability and SOA design and run-time infrastructure, any existing logic and data can be made accessible to the BPM system, enabling business managers to monitor, analyze and iteratively refine the execution of the process, including the manual efforts of people and the system automated steps.

Collaborative Workspace

The unified meta-model of the Collaborative Workspace (CWS) acts as glue to all the constituents of composite applications. It provides a consistent view of the development artefacts enabling development teams to assess the impact of change. It also enables the packaging of applications with a single click of the mouse. The collaborative nature of CWS makes it easy for both business and IT users to work together to develop new applications, ensuring total alignment with business requirements throughout the lifecycle.
