Application development

Keeping pace with constantly evolving IT technologies, we are well-versed in developing conventional and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. Your needs determine the technologies and the development methodology we use (e.g. agile for ever-changing needs). It is especially important for us to have close cooperation between business users and the development team throughout the application lifecycle. Our goal is to achieve the best customer satisfaction and the most positive user experience (UX).

Our developers have extensive experience in the programming languages and technologies most commonly used in enterprise environments, such as C# / .NET, Java and PHP.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Nowadays EDI fulfills an increasingly significant role in more and more companies. Fast and error-free transmission of orders, invoices, delivery notes and similar documents is essential for effective operation. Manually executing these processes (for example, sending emails via email or fax, or even sending orders via phone) is often slow, tedious and unfortunately often inaccurate.

With EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) these tasks can be digitized and automated, providing simple, burden-free, fast, efficient and economical data transfer.

The members of our team have many years of EDI experience in IT, consumer product, and other major sectors, which have been gained and utilized in the Western European market.

This way we can provide our service in excellent quality and in several languages (Hungarian, English, German) at a competitive price.

Our most commonly used standards, message types and communication channels:

Standards

  • EDIFact
  • SAP IDoc
  • XML
  • Inhouse (custom, often CSV)

Message types

  • Orders
  • Invoice
  • Order response
  • Delivery note

Communication

  • AS2
  • X400
  • FTP
  • SFTP

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

The design, deployment and operation of systems powered by Amazon Web Services is a part of our qualified specialist team. Within the AWS infrastructure we have competence and reference in the Compute, Storage and Network areas that we build and operate in a private or hybrid cloud architecture. By effectively leveraging the elements of the AWS system, we are able to create a virtual data center environment, test, or run new or existing applications with a minimal development time. We can integrate the AWS infrastructure through a secure data link channel with the client's existing system and, of course, provide AWS content delivery services to publish to the Internet.

The mobility and scalability of the AWS infrastructure enables the creation of a highly efficient hybrid cloud system that opens up new perspectives in application management.

The AWS platform natively supports most virtual networking devices by most major network vendors along with BYOL (Bring Your Own License) terms, such as Cisco, Juniper, F5, or Palo Alto; if we are to use the functionality of well-known network elements in the public or hybrid-cloud infrastructure.

The AWS system offers its own tools to accommodate and support emerging technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT). Our team pays special attention to the use of DevOps and NetOps, which guarantee high degree of automation, availability and data security.
