By capitalizing on two emerging trends, service oriented architecture (SOA) and Open Source, Entaros best practice consulting group will help you master critical business challenges with unprecedented flexibility. Solutions integrated in an SOA create reusable processes in a maintainable environment. With Entaros you have option of closed source or Open Source solutions. This gives you a decision advantage that translates in cost, time to market, functionality, reliability and freedom from one-vendor-solutions.
Availability of source code opens wide the innovative possibilities of the underlying technologies. Architecting solutions in such a manner will greatly improve organizational agility and promote innovation. Our consultants can help your internal teams set the groundwork for this innovation to occur, all at a lower-total-cost-of-ownership when compared to proprietary commercial vendor solutions or home grown systems.
The following section describes a number of the ways we can work with you to solve your technology problems:
Packaged Application Services
Open Source software package implementations are challenging. With over 140,000 projects on SourceForge.net alone, and thousands of distributed developers around the world producing new code and new applications each month, understanding the particular nuances of Open Source software in any given space can be daunting. For companies that have the time and resources to conduct their own rigorous analysis and provide implementation assistance to the business group, most Open Source ISVs provide adequate support. However, for companies that require high quality, fast, on-time, within budget deployments that meets business needs, Entros Corp. will seamlessly step in to assist.
Our package application delivery teams have gone through extensive domain, process and application training in their respective disciplines, gaining intimate knowledge of the Open Source technology in which we work. The disciplines covered by our group include:
- Enterprise portals
- Messaging and collaboration
- Customer relationship management
- Enterprise content management
- Enterprise resource planning
- Business intelligence
Open Source alternatives exist for almost every category of software. Across your enterprise at the group level, Open Source software applications will reduce use restrictions, provide greater choice, lower license costs and reduce time-to-market.
Our expert consulting team can help your company with:
- Consulting & selection
- Application customizations
- Implementation & global rollouts
- Application lifecycle management
- Data migration
- Process reengineering
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) & Web Services
Web services technology, by reducing integration complexity, will allow enterprises to build stronger and faster relationships with customers and partners. This in turn will mean fast turn around time for services and reduced time to market for products for your customers.
We believe that Web Services technology allows businesses to offer to their customers the ability to leverage their existing IT applications by moving them from the core of the enterprise to the edge by externalizing and thus making them accessible beyond their usual problem space. Through these initiatives we help you achieve this vision and derive value from your investments.
