Our unique Development methodology is based on .Net and C# technologies. Platform agnostic, we have built this framework to reduce the amount of physical source code in a given application.
Our metadata development approach is a unique implementation of well established methodologies. We have an automatic API for every function. We support the full range of industry standard clients and database technologies and have demonstrated our capability to integrate with other complex and proprietary systems.
Mobile – There is a lot of work to be done to make existing applications mobile / web ready. You have to create a strategy to handle the security and to separate you presentation layer from your database layer through REST Based Services. A system developed using the SCAD Framework is automatically mobile ready as everything is accessed through modern REST Based Services.
Social networking – The SCAD Framework allow social network authentication and login out of the box and the Web Based front-ends are social media friendly. You can therefore log into our systems using Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and other means by just changing a setting.
Big Data – The SCAD Framework lends itself to Big Data consumption as an outcome without any development. The biggest issue is that in most cases data is pushed to the Big Data platforms via separate pieces of software, and it is not an outcome of the normal business processes. It also normally happen after the fact. Through our platform we can provide real time or near real time analytics of data.
Identity Management – The SCAD Framework is integrated with different bio-metric providers to allow you to have multi factor bio metric authentication to enable to single source Identity management through various different means.
IoT (Internet of Things) – SCAD has been involved in integration with PLC and SCADA in advanced automated manufacturing and mining plants since 1999. IoT devices are mostly the same type of devices, but just accessible through the internet. Our platform allows for easy integration with IOT devices as part of normal business processes. An example of this is for the mining industry where we have Rules Based Access Control systems for preventative maintenance of mining plants. Although people have access cards to enter specific areas, we only allow people to enter the areas of there is a maintenance job scheduled and they are part of the job team. We also monitor them in real time and measure the time that they spend in the plant.
Regulation and Governance – Organizations have huge challenges to adapt to constant regulatory change. These regulatory changes have a knock-on effect on systems and processes throughout the organization. When doing traditional software development, the cost and time of doing this can have a big impact on the business and can result in risk and penalties. Using our Technology, change can be affected a lot quicker and at lower cost. An example is Basel compliance in the banking industry or Solvency II in the insurance industry. SCAD has been involved in these highly regulated environments for over 20 years, and our technology are at the cutting edge when it comes to rolling out changes quickly.
