Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) combine the ubiquity of browser based applications with the user interface of traditional windows applications to provide the best of both worlds for serious business application development with RIAs, everyone wins. IT departments enjoy the simplicity of server based deployments and the cost savings of a much more productive development environment. End users enjoy a truly rich application with dramatically improved performance and a rich user interface using traditional controls such as tree views, data grids and tab controls.
With a history in both rich client applications and application server based solutions, RIA development was a natural fit for us at Akira. We have been developing RIA solutions for some of today’s most progressive companies.
In this project Akira developed a highly-scalable platform for conducting surveys. We leveraged MongoDB NoSQL architecture to simplify storage of different types of surveys. The backend processing is done in Hadoop cluster and the entire system is deployed to the AWS. We paid extra attention to the performance and stress testing ensuring that the resulting platform can guarantee ultimate performance.
Akira has developed a fusion of multiple technologies allowing direct translation from your requirements file into a fully-functional business-process-oriented web application. Our approach leverages Oracle technologies such as Oracle Policy Automation (OPA), Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) and Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (BAM).
Jive is a great platform for enterprise social collaboration and Akira used it in multiple projects. In our experience we found that despite its overall rich functionality it lacks tools for building new communities quickly and effectively. In order to address this problem we have developed a web-based tool allowing invitations of users in bulk, tracking the invitation campaign progress and more.
