  2. 2. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl RIAs Bring People-Centered Design To Information Workplaces ―Rich Internet applications (RIAs) are emerging as vehicles to enable the next generation of Information Workplaces that are best suited for decision-makers and task-oriented workers who engage in complex, multistep processes — people who need seamless, individualized, and highly visual user experiences.‖ Erica Driver and Ron Rogowski, Forrester Research, November 26, 2007
  3. 3. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl RIA’s state-of-the-art The RIAs advantages are well known: interactivity and agility typical of desktop applications, without sacrificing portability and ease of management of web-based applications. This is a winning formula, as demonstrated by the energies that major computer software companies (Microsoft, Adobe, Oracle/Sun) are investing to position themselves in this market with their technologies. Platforms available to developers have reached the maturity and the strength necessary to extend RIAs benefits to enterprises.
  4. 4. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl RIA’s state-of-the-art By contrast, the implementation of an enterprise RIA requires a considerable set of skills: expertise on the User Interface development, along with knowledge of the back-end technologies. We must also consider that the potential of RIA tools, to be fully realized, requires much greater analysis of the UI (user experience design).
  5. 5. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl Web Site’s commitment Web Site has adopted RIA technology from the first moments of this evolution, gaining a strategic advantage in terms of expertise and experience. The direction taken led to the successful integration of the RIA component in the development model put up in its laboratories. The result achieved is the absolute excellence in the software architecture and in development methodology.
  6. 6. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl RIA and software architectures of enterprise level RIA technology is the most powerful tool to develop the front-end of a software system, however, to be successfully implemented in an enterprise scenario, it must integrate seamlessly into a complex stack of technologies and frameworks. Web Site has successfully combined Adobe's RIA platform with its software architecture and its development methodology based on the best available technologies: • Java / JEE • Hibernate • Spring • Services Oriented Architecture • Web Services • Model driven development
  7. 7. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl The technological choice Web Site identified Adobe RIA technologies as the most powerful and most mature in the market, and has built on them its front-end strategy:  Adobe Flash is the runtime through which the RIA content is provided  Adobe Flex (now Apache Flex) is a high-level development framework for creating applications based on Flash  Adobe AIR is a runtime system for development of desktop and mobile applications using Flash technology or normal HTML / CSS / JavaScript, thanks to the integrated WebKit browser engine.
  8. 8. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl Examples The following are some of the possible fields of application of the RIA. Some of the presented examples are part of deployed systems heavily accessed by a considerable number of users, demonstrating the robustness of the designed architecture.
  9. 9. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl Enterprise web-based applications The classic web-based application is enriched by RIA technology:  Navigation between functions is fluid and fast eliminating server-side UI refresh  Screen space is maximized, thanks to the precise control provided by Flash and to the correct use of transitions  Compatibility with different browsers and operating systems is improved through the support of Flash Player
  10. 10. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl Desktop and mobile applications With Adobe AIR you can create desktop and mobile applications with the potential of RIA and with many additional benefits:  A unique development environment, and a set of components common to major operating systems and platforms, allows developers to focus their efforts on specific platforms and various device’s form factors (PC, tablets, smartphones)  The possibility to use the application even without connection to the server (offline)
  11. 11. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl Visualization and data manipulation  The potential of the engine that drives the Flash RIA becomes evident in applications that manage information in a visual way  Charts and graphs become, in many cases, the ideal tool to interact with data.  RIA development offers all the tools to design innovative user interface, that improves significantly the efficiency and speed of the front-end
  12. 12. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl Dashboards for data analysis The richness of expression typical of RIA allows you to create interactive dashboards for fast and exciting data analysis:  Only raw numerical data are exchanged between client and server, improving the speed of response to user actions (drill down).  The charts are updated, click after click, through animations and smooth transitions – the user will not "lose the thread‖ and also receives a visual feedback for comparison.
  13. 13. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl Personal dashboards  The same graphics capabilities and interactive features make it possible to create user customizable dashboards, effective and interactive  Back-end integration tools transparently support push data updates from server to the connected clients
  14. 14. Copyright © 2013 Web Site srl DeskEngine  DeskEngine is the laboratory project used by Web Site to experiment unexplored paradigms of user interface and real-time collaboration  The result is a framework which serves as the basis for the creation of applications with a truly innovative user experience.
