Application Engine

Applications that run reliably from day one, but need to be “loaded” with customer content

With the Application Engine, not only simple applications but also the most complex issues can be realized in short periods of time together with our expert team, which has many years of experience in the digitization of manufacturing processes. “The more complex the task, the more motivated we are to solve this challenge and thus radically simplify the task”.

The Java-based low-code development platform used by us for this purpose makes this possible:

  • Configuration and operation of applications using predefined, subject-specific process models
  • Modelling and adaptation of the applications by the respective users
  • Operation of the applications on cloud environments, hybrid environment or on-premise
  • Easy integration into different IT landscapes (databases, operating systems, …)
  • Easy extension of process models through flexible data models

Our solution for the modular, flexible and open Application Ecosystem

Our innovative approach is to quickly configure specific task scopes as separate full-fledged applications and to interconnect these applications, together with 3rd party software in the customer environment, in an open ecosystem (plug-in, plug-in-out principle). This results in a unique data consistency, reliability and a fast return on investment, as individual applications go live quickly and immediately deliver initial added value, which is then further increased in the network.

Individual value-added services can be configured using the Application Engine:

  • APPs for planning, production, automation technology, logistics, maintenance and quality assurance
  • AI-based assistance systems
  • Trend / Forecast Monitor
  • Cockpits for process monitoring

Model-based

Create apps in an agile way through model-driven development.

Integrative

Integration of internal company IT systems & 3rd party applications.

Configurative

Flexible changes of the models during runtime.

Modular

Lightweight, domain-specific
applications.

Standard-Features of our Application Engine

Monitoring

Learn more

IT-Monitoring ensures early problem and fault detection as well as compliance
with parameters.
Costly server
failures can be
prevented, for
example.

Deployment

Learn more

Continuous release and
deployment provide
developers and customers
with quick feedback.
Software functions can be
tested at runtime before they
are completed and ready for
release.

Auditing

Learn more
The systematic auditing
process procedure examines
the accounts of an
organization for their
accuracy. There are individual
workflows, rules and
procedures to define and to
follow.

Rest
Communication

Learn more

Standardized access to app information via an “openAPI” based interface.

Database
Connectivity

Learn more

Different standard interfaces to link data from the IT landscape (e.g. SQL, SAP, Office, LDAP).

Office
Integration

Learn more

Import of data from Office formats and automatic generation of Excel or PowerPoint reports from the application while retaining the CI (Cooperate Identity).

Authorization

Learn more

Connection of company-wide authorization systems for secure access to the application (including single sign-on solutions such as openID).

Authentication

Learn more

The integrated rights management controls personal access to data and information with centrally managed authorization profiles.

OWASP/Hardening

Learn more

Regular security audits of the framework and applications to secure the applications against external attacks.

Semantic
Navigation

Learn more

The Application Engine provides the users with semantic functions to efficiently search and navigate and to group together links, resulting in more semantic markup and extra structure.

Revision
Management

Learn more

Minimize risks in daily audit work by tracking & documenting changes throughout the lifecycle.

Document
Management

Learn more

A database-supported administration of electronic documents helps users to organize, coordinate, distribute and archive documents and make them accessible throughout the company.
