The best of two worlds
forged into a single system.
The foundation: three-stage data-access layer
A data model specified at the conceptual level bridges the gap between object-oriented abstractions and relational structures.
The concept of encapsulation is systematically implemented at all three levels with clearly defined interfaces. This also allows Aquantec Ocean's data model to be combined with any database.
The precise specification and technical implementation of core entities ensures the easy integration of new product and market data.
Aquantec Ocean's conceptual data model ensures that the system combines high performance with easy extensibility. The domain-specific logic is built on top of the conceptual model, remaining independent and focused. The entire model is designed to provide true cross-asset capabilities.
The building materials: future-oriented technologies
To achieve its lean and flexible structure, Aquantec Ocean leverages the service-oriented Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). All activities can be carried out locally or distributed as needed, enabling an optimal balancing.
By means of suitable configuration, Aquantec Ocean can be fully adapted to your processes and embedded into your IT landscape with a minimum of installation effort.
Aquantec Ocean's core business abstractions are reflected in an intuitive user interface. Integration with Office products is built-in. All processes can be perfectly tailored to the users and achieve the best possible performance. Presentation layer, application logic, and data management remain decoupled.
The ability to adhere to security standards is self understood, data encryption and authorization are easy to configure. All standard protocols are supported by Aquantec Ocean.
»Perfecting both domain modeling and architecture and combining these two aspects with each other – that's sophisticated communication.«
The layer architecture of Aquantec Ocean
Aquantec Ocean is based on a
tried and tested layer model. By employing state-of-the-art technology, the software can operate in a wide array of different architectures.
You can operate Aquantec Ocean as a client / server architecture, a 3- or 4-tier architecture, or embedded in a service-oriented architecture. The stringent separation of concerns enables numerous combination possibilities with a variety of client and database technologies.
The Core of Aquantec Ocean
The »Core« of Aquantec Ocean is the result of a filtering and distillation process that took place over many years in which the domain's essential abstractions were identified. These core abstractions are based exclusively on interface definitions that define the individual roles played by the software components.
Aquantec Ocean offers a large number of prefabricated customizable components. This enables a highly dynamic adaptation to specific needs. The generic entity model allows new product types to be introduced in an efficient manner.
