We know product building.
A product is a product and a project is a project, and ne’er the twain shall meet.
If a software system is not designed from Day 1 as a product, you can’t retro-fit features and engineering to it to make it one. Most of the custom software applications built for Wall Street giants are just in-house projects. They will never be products.
We know how to make a product (i) extensible and maintainable, (ii) scalable for high loads, (iii) work across multiple platforms, and (iv) look good. And we know how to manage the nail-biting criticality of release management whenever a new version is released.
We can build your product for you, run it, and maintain it.
We built this product for our internal business division, with goals of uber-scalability and high reliability. This product can send millions of emails a day. Its architecture permits scale-out scalability and one cluster can have 50+ servers, all managed from a single control, pushing out 100,000+ emails per hour.
We built this in a mixture of Perl and Java, and extensively used email sub-systems already available on Unix. The core MTA is Sendmail. Broadside operates as a SaaS service out of data centres in Singapore.
This was a start-up, building a messaging and collaboration app with some nice new wrinkles. A sort-of more business-like and structured upgrade from WhatsApp.
We built the app using Ionic and Cordova, and it works on iPhones and Android from the first release. We used CouchDB and PouchDB for the data synchronisation and message passing, thus eliminating a lot of the overheads of writing and using web service calls. The server-side code therefore has become extremely low maintenance.
People are now setting up tasks, notices, sharing documents, all collaboratively. The world is about to become a more friendly place. Such collaboration!
This was built initially for one of our enterprise clients, a diversified financial services group. This product runs on Linux servers and provides a scalable, high throughput log aggregation and forensic analysis platform. It receives log messages from all the custom business applications of the client, across various units, and allows inspection at a centralised repository.
The product was built primarily in PHP, on Linux. It uses the LKE stack, with LogStash accepting log messages from various components in their data centre, massaging the format to convert to the one true internal structure. It is then stored in ElasticSearch, and a modified version of Kibana allows access controlled browsing of the repository.
This product was for a start-up based in Singapore and the US. Their aim was to pay retail users for customer acquisition by passing special offers to them. The user would accept the offer for a trial, for a test drive, for a free sample, and would get paid hard cash from the advertiser.
This product was mobile-first, and used a browser interface only for administration and back-office workers. We built the app using Ionic, and the server-side code was in PHP, with a PostgreSQL database. There were stringent internationalisation requirements, which we met. Sweet!
We built this for a Dutch client, who are in the business of inspections of civil constructions. Their site inspectors carry large blueprints and checklists into a construction site, make detailed inspections, make notes on a notepad (with a pen!) and submit reports to the construction company.
We helped them automate the entire on-site activity onto an iPad. Huge PDF blueprints of 1GB+ in size are supported, as are totally configurable checklists. Inspectors can tap a specific point in a blueprint and raise a red flag. Issues are later tabulated and tracked for closure. It all works wonderfully. Buildings in the Netherlands are now safer and defect-free thanks to Keurix.
ECS for KRCL
Konkan Railway Corporation is a govt owned railway service, with 70+ railway stations and 736 km of tracks along Indian western coast. They needed an office productivity and collaboration suite.
We built the Enterprise Collaboration Suite for them, based on our internal Servaya platform. This platform provided email services, controlled and secure web browsing, malware filtering, an Intranet, file servers, and various other features. It ran on multiple servers spread over three data centres, all controlled from one administrative console. It serves 3,000 users reliably and has scalability to grow with KRCL.
