New ways to understand architecture
Technological innovation is the backbone of success for any organization that is considered a market leader. To build their value propositions and competitive advantages, large and medium companies around the world turn to digital technologies.
A company’s vision, the values associated with a brand, a perfectly designed customer experience, an ambitious offering ... all these ideas can be reflected on digital channels.
But whether they are smartphone apps, global banking channels, massive ecommerce platforms or booking systems, all solutions share the same four universal challenges. These four elements make up the underlying principles of all SNGULAR’s Scalable Platforms.
The evolution challenge
Being able to adapt, evolve and keep up with the pace of industry change, to become an ally instead of an obstacle.
The onmichannel challenge
Being able to offer users a meaningful interaction experience in the channels where they feel most comfortable
The performance challenge
Being able to maintain response times in heavy traffic situations.
The quality challenge
A robust, stable and reliable experience is the best way to transmit trust.
A digital channel allows the interaction between users and systems. SNGULAR Scalable Platforms supports these interactions through web channels, single-page applications, smartphone apps, smart speakers, wearable devices, embedded systems, etc.
The key principle of microservices is simplicity, applied to both platforms and developers. Platforms become easier to deploy and evolve as they are split into a set of smaller interoperable fragments. On the other hand, this approach tackles the problem of productivity by decomposing solutions into manageable services, faster to build and deploy, while allowing teams to focus on business features.
API platforms & open platforms
By making assets visible to internal and external parties, information and operations are much more accessible. That way, organizations promote the rapid development of new features, while building an ecosystem of partners, customers and users.
Salesforce & CRM
Companies of all sizes use CRM software to leverage data to increase sales and customer satisfaction. A CRM enables a wide range of marketing strategies and makes upselling more effective, thus enhancing customer retention and loyalty. SNGULAR is a partner of Salesforce, the leading CRM platform.
SNGULAR has been involved in e-commerce since the year 2000. Since then, we have built e-commerce platforms using two different approaches: either by extending and configuring standard solutions, or by developing turnkey platforms that challenge the market’s status-quo.
At the heart of interoperable architecture is a system capable of connecting its different elements. The most common challenges of middleware are: facilitating the creation and extension of connectors, allowing transparent data exchange between systems, and not penalizing the performance of interconnected systems. Today, new challenges include combining solutions in public and private clouds or integrating systems and devices.
- The cornerstone of a SNGULAR Scalable Platform is its ability to integrate with the rest of an organization's systems. CRM systems for customer relationship management, ERPs for controlling and distributing company resources, provisioning platforms, booking systems, financial terminals... A platform that aspires to transform the operations of an organization should connect to all the systems.
SNGULAR builds microservice architecture based on the distributed services that overlay our customers' core systems (banking, insurance, hospitals, distribution, etc.) Built on containers, they allow for the continuous deployment of complex corporate solutions while facilitating the development and innovation of an organization’s technological base.
SNGULAR Data Acceleration Architecture
Access to mainframe systems remains a handicap in large multinational organizations. Being able to use host information to create rich visualizations in user interfaces or access data efficiently and inexpensively are two of the most common challenges.
