Applications Infrastructure Technology
Application Infrastructure Technologies (often referred to as Middleware), is an enabler for the evolution of Business applications. It is an enabler for the smooth and easy interconnection of heterogeneous processes and applications across an organization and external partners. Middleware also improves the speed, scale and management of these connections.
Speedier, better and more flexible business processes—the optimization of resources—is a top-priority of the operational sector—of organizations. Business Process Management (BPM), in the language of systems engineering and software engineering, means reproducing the processes of an enterprise so that those processes may be analyzed and improved. Cost reduction, increased productivity, compliance, enhanced flexibility and risk minimisation will be achieved through the quick implementation, management, monitoring and analysis of business processes for innovation and efficiency.
Business Process Management (BPM) solutions allow for a holistic approach to management through the alignment of all organizational aspects with customer needs and wishes.
BPM solutions very efficiently support, and are closely associated with Service Oriented Architectures (SOA).
The BPM solution that Uni Systems recommends is based on the parameterisation of the proper software and provides enterprises with the following, highly desirable, operating capabilities:
- Application Interoperability;
- Business Process Modelling and Analysis—Enables business users to shape and simulate business processes;
- Business Process Orchestration—Supports process orchestration through programming techniques;
- Human Workflow—Supports people-oriented workflow processes;
- Business Rules—Enables the establishment of business rules;
- Business Activity Monitoring—Allows business users to control their processes at real time.
Intelligent Document Recognition (IDR) is a combination of technologies that enables the process of automatic document recognition, routing, and the extraction and use of information from these documents based on specific rules.
To achieve these tasks, a set of innovative technologies are employed, allowing enterprises to rationalise their document flow. With the use of IDR technologies, together with a digitisation platform, enterprises can significantly reduce the manual work required for the recognition, classification and filing of critical business documents, reducing processing costs, improving business processes, and increasing productivity.
Critical business processes, such as the processing of a loan application, utilise and illustrate the advantages of the consolidated classification of documents, the extraction of information from these documents, and their management by a Document Management system.
By working with a wide range of document types and multiple departments, different locations of an enterprise or among many enterprises, an organisation is able to speed up information routing and process optimisation.
As Enterprises continue to leverage mobile devices and cloud service models, the typical enterprise IT infrastructure has changed from a defined set of assets owned and controlled by the organization to a diverse pool of resources with fluctuating visibility and control.
Formerly enclosed network perimeters are now globally connected webs of users and devices that are accessing IT environments wherever, whenever and however they choose. These changes have led to new threats, high-profile data breaches and regulatory requirements that place intense pressure and scrutiny around IT security. Security and Log Management incidents are a persistent business risk that each organization has to protect.
Uni Systems takes a holistic approach to IT security and Log Management. With long experience across the IT spectrum, we are uniquely positioned to help reduce costs and the time it takes to identify, assess and remediate risks. We focus on the overall maturity and health of your program—where it is today, and where you would like it to be in the future.
Changing markets, increasing competition, and the evolving needs of customers require IT departments to have maximum flexibility and speed in project delivery. In response to these challenges, leading enterprises are adopting Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) in dealing with these demands and effectively addressing the complexity of applications in today’s IT environment.
SOA’s business value becomes clear when used in combination with Business Process Management (BPM) technologies, in establishing, executing, monitoring and optimizing organizational processes.
Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) is a flexible set of design and technology principles used in the stages of systems development and integration. A SOA-based system consists of a set of interoperable services that can be used in the context of multiple, separate systems by different business sectors.
Business processes are the focal point of an enterprise and the basis for achieving its objectives. To this end, the improvement of business processes remains a key priority as higher effectiveness, promotion, and flexibility help enterprises adjust to change.
