Enterprise systems and web applications require more than a beautiful interface and some programming logic: They require carefully implemented software architecture. Software development and architecture is directly correlated to a system's overall performance. During the development stage of a project it may be tempting to overrate the importance of good architecture, as at this time the system is operating under very ideal conditions. However, when a system goes into production it must be able to handle new challenges:
Software system processes are the heart of the system, as every other part of the system is loosely concerned with managing the flow of information into and out of these processes. The goal of good project architecture is that it is maintainable and scalable, and to accomplish this goal we require architecture with a minimal complexity. We have a several issues to consider in creating business process architecture:
The traditional structure of most internet based systems involves a client-server model in which the client acts as the front-end interface terminal and the server holds and processes back end business logic. The front end will communicate with the back end through a Service Oriented Architecture, where the front end calls upon required services from the back end. This part of the project will connect the static GUI with the modules on the back end.
Etanova is committed to creating a high quality projects by using a minimal amount of resources! In other words, we want to use whatever tools we have at our disposal without reinventing the wheel. In fact, Etanova has accumulated experience with a large collection of external services and APIs that are either free to use (open source) or present a minimal cost. These may occasionally present a compromise to the project in terms of quality, however oftentimes the benefits greatly outweigh the disadvantages. We are committed to presenting you with all the options and realizing the best solution together.
