  • This is what Digital Harbor does – Enable Composite Applications Key Takeaways: We link information from multiple systems We enable business users (who think in their jobs) to connect the dots and make real time decisions We have been recognized with several awards
  • 2 points - 1) Here is our view of what we need to address and the scope of Mantas / SS 2) How is CCFSB covering all of this
  • 2 points - 1) Here is our view of what we need to address and the scope of Mantas / SS 2) How is CCFSB covering all of this
  • To achieve this, Digital Harbor offers three new layers of technology. Starting at the bottom, we logically access information in many different sources. EII = Enterprise Information Integration. We leave the information where it physically resides and link to it. We can access data in databases, web services, XML documents, JMS messages, and other enterprise applications as if they came from one source. For instance, you may have customer data in two different databases (and it may be stored as cust_name and cust_id, but it is one concept, a “customer”). At the middle level is where a lot of the “magic” happens. Digital Harbor preserves the meaning of the underlying information and captures the relationships between things. For instance, we know what a customer is because we know that it is related to other things—other pieces of data like accounts and branches and advisors and exceptions, as well as information about processes (who approved the loan), rules (is it a large customer or small customer), and events (customer requests a new loan). We have a fancy name for this layer—called a “Business Ontology”—but it’s a very simple idea. Just like you have a schema in any one database that describes how Data A is related to Data B, a Business Ontology is like a schema across systems. And…since there is information in our processes, rules, and events, the Business Ontology links together those pieces of information as well. (For the technologists in the crowd, ontologies are a very hot topic in the industry, being led by Tim Berners-Lee who invented the internet and the W3C, where we participate in the 3 rd largest committee they have on OWL (ontology web language). ) Finally, as we’ve described in the compliance example, it isn’t enough to show the data side-by-side on a static screen. Users need to seamlessly and dynamically link between pieces of information that may originate in different physical systems at the bottom level. Our “Smart Client” is a composite interface that preserves the meaning of the information it displays, along with the relationships between things. It interoperates with portals and other web UIs, but because it is tied to the middle layer, it adds “intelligence” that they don’t have.
  • Big Idea Digital Harbor excels at integrating at the “system of systems” level. (Animate) Here we surround the surveillance applications and enterprise enable them.
  • 2 points - 1) Here is our view of what we need to address and the scope of Mantas / SS 2) How is CCFSB covering all of this
  • So let’s look a an example of a composite application we built for a defense customer The first thing you’ll see is that the interface combines information from various stove-pipe applications together, all in one interface over the web. You’ll also notice that this composite application is very rich in functionality that you usually don’t see in static web solutions. In this example, the composite application is pulling information from an Oracle database, a Sybase database, a mapping server – such as ESRI, and a scheduling system. Click, Click What you see now is that as I click on a new piece of information from the Oracle database, the application automatically changes the information from the other data sources to match the information I just clicked on. This is automatic correlation because the objects know about each other. Click Click Now, you can drill down on any piece of information and get data related to that piece of information. For example, here, I clicked on the map and I automatically see an image that comes from yet another imagery system, that is associated to that image marker or lat/long. Click Click Now, let’s see the real power of the Ontology. Because every piece of information is related to each other, I can ASK questions about any piece of data. In this example here, I’m looking at the scheduling system and asking – who is the current person or actor responsible for this task? I get my answer – Buck. I can even go further and ask – what other tasks does Buck have on his plate. And I automatically get that. The key concept to grasp here is that the information is being fetch across multiple data sources and that the composite application developer never added this functionality in by coding. Users get this automatically through the ontology. Just in this example, you’re asking information from a workflow process while in runtime and combining it with relational data. That’s something today that requires an intensive amount of integration and coding by back-end developers that are not taking a composite application approach.

  • We’re an enterprise software company. Its typical in this forum to share financials at the end, but we’re somewhat atypical in that we have been around for 5 years, have revenues, have a product, and are cash flow positive…. Key Takeaways: We’ve been around We make real money, have real customers High profile individual investors are excited about us
  • Big Idea Digital Harbor excels at integrating at the “system of systems” level. (Animate) Here we surround the surveillance applications and enterprise enable them.
  • Digital Harbor got its start in 1997 in the Defense Intelligence world (NSA). The reason they turned to Digital Harbor is that they have enormous volumes of information (peda-bytes!), in different forms (data, documents, email, images, etc), and in different sources/silos. Their analysts needed to (in their words) “connect the dots” across these types and sources—to “compose a picture of the situation” so they could assess “risks” and “threats”. And while they had spent over $1B in the 90’s on traditional infrastructure technologies for integration, workflow, etc, they found, at the end of the day, that these solutions focused on the technical issues (the plumbing) but didn’t help users see links and relationships between pieces of information so they could make the right decisions. They needed a platform for composing information into a complete picture—a Composite Application.
