Positioning for the future Companies are not about to throw away their massive software investments for completely new architectures, but at the same time, they need a way to leverage their capital investments to provide a path to the future. Nucleus offers a manageable and affordable path to the future, leveraging investments in existing logic, data structures, and reporting, building on existing skill sets, retaining personnel
Evolution not Revolution Nucleus architecture offers an evolutionary path to the future, without a violent upheaval in how things work. Traditional applications can be enhanced with Nucleus, adding features demanded by today’s rapidly changing marketplace, while mitigating the risks of application re-engineering.
Strong foundation, a new look Existing database structures and definitions, the result of many man-years of effort, provide the initial structure in a Nucleus evolution. It is NOT necessary to re-structure or revise data files or dictionary definitions. It is NOT necessary to re-write existing reports. It is NOT necessary to start over.
Gradual = Manageable Nucleus provides a path to gradually add a new look and feel to existing applications on a prioritized basis, supporting the requirements of management and fulfilling the needs of users. Addressing organizational needs on a prioritized basis within an easily supported and integrated development environment ensures success.
Developmental Collaboration Nucleus Enterprise Architecture enables developers to rapidly deliver working prototypes, enabling collaboration of users, management and IT staff. Application deployment is accelerated, making information systems more flexible while reducing life-cycle costs.
Business Architecture Increasingly complex regulatory environments demand new and innovative approaches to core business processes. Nucleus empowers an organization to rapidly address changing needs, increasing customer demands and industry requirements, through collaboration across organizational boundaries using information technology.
Data Architecture Nucleus Query Language (NuQL) provides a common vocabulary and standardized information interface connecting normalized (flat) and NNF2 (Pick/Pick-like) multi-dimensional structures, extending the capability and life-span of your environment.
Application Architecture Nucleus incorporates a framework designed to provide a standardized structure for developers and a consistency of operation for the user. Consistency enables the programmer to “know where to look”, reducing the time, effort and costs of development and simplifying support.
Security Architecture Nucleus security follows a scheme similar to Unix, where workgroup associations and individual user permissions allow or disallow access. Under Nucleus security, every menu, screen, verb, command, printer or file can be regulated according to workgroup associations. Security is “built-in” - down to the field level.
Technical Architecture A host based framework mitigates risk in application deployment. Every instance of an application will run the same code. Modern technologies including HTML, Java, Visual Basic, .NET and Delphi objects can be incorporated as part of an “application mix”. External databases including Oracle and DB2 can be addressed from Nucleus applications using a commonly available interface.
Platform Independence Platform independence is assured for the developer or VAR. Nucleus applications can run on ANY popular NNF2 (Pick/Pick-like) environment including D3, IBM UniVerse, IBM UniData, jBASE, mvEnterprise, QM / Open QM, Univision or other “Multi-dimensional” platform.
Nucleus: An unfair advantage Nucleus may very well offer an unfair advantage. Accelerated deployment, platform independence, terminal independence without code divergence, GUI - Character based - green screen and web support, all contribute to providing an Enterprise Architecture that can easily be your unfair advantage.
