The modern corporation faces many challenges regarding the
implementation of Intranet/Internet/Extranet
applications. The typical organization has
multiple teams pioneering different applications
using different tools and technologies. To be as
efficient as possible, a corporation should
determine a strategy for implementing these new
applications in a consistent manner.
This strategy should leverage the existing skills of the
company's IS staff where possible. The best way
to promote developer efficiency and to ensure
consistent development is to implement a
A framework is a set of reusable custom components and procedures.
It allows for those aspects of the business and
the IS development process to be constructed once
in a generic manner. These components can then be
reused and customized in many different
be custom built to meet the specific needs of an
organization. The Enticy Group has members who
have extensive experience constructing different
frameworks in different environments.
What are the best tools for implementing transactional
applications in the browser? Which technologies
should we consider to provide a scalable and
robust application environment? What is the best
way to partition the logic of these applications?
These are all questions that need answering
before any attempt should be made to implement a
web based application.
The answers to these questions depend on many factors. What
legacy applications are to be integrated into the
new system? What traffic levels are expected on
this site, initially and going forward? What are
the skills available to the development team?
What skills can be acquired?
Each organization will find its own answers to these
questions. The Enticy Group is qualified to help
you determine the correct environment and to help
you build that environment.
Once an environment has been determined, the next step is
to ensure that all teams working in this
environment are working in an effective and
The Enticy Group also builds individual custom
applications. We can use this development effort
to begin building your own specific framework.
This added benefit to the development effort
comes at virtually no extra cost as each
application that we work on benefits from the
same rigorous software engineering approach.
This allows us to identify opportunities for code reuse and
component construction while working on
relatively small applications. Any subsequent
development carried out in-house or by the Enticy
Group will be able to leverage work previously
