CLOUD


"The system is easy to use and the product is continually developed in conjunction with its customer base" - Ian Wilson, Procurement Manager, Camelot


“The Cloud” is more than a passing technology fad. It is a real, viable, secure set of technologies that enable you to get up and running quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.

Scanmarket was built in the cloud on Day 1. Since 1999, Scanmarket has been a pioneer in this space, delivering our solutions over the Internet, rather than via the lengthy, expensive and risky behind-the-firewall implementations of old software.

We have always understood both the value of cloud solutions and, more importantly, how to use them to meet our customers’ varied and ever-changing needs.

PROVEN TECHNOLOGY


Scanmarket leverages Microsoft’s .NET development platform.  The .NET Framework is a technology that supports building and running the next generation of applications and XML Web services.  The .NET Framework is designed to fulfill the following objectives:

  • To provide a consistent object-oriented programming environment whether object code is stored and executed locally, executed locally but Internet-distributed, or executed remotely;
  • To provide a code-execution environment that minimizes software deployment and versioning conflicts
  • To provide a code-execution environment that promotes safe execution of code, including code created by an unknown or semi-trusted third party;
  • To provide a code-execution environment that eliminates the performance problems of scripted or interpreted environments;
  • To make the developer experience consistent across widely varying types of applications, such as Windows-based applications and Web-based applications;
  • To build all communication on industry standards to ensure that code based on the .NET Framework can integrate with any other code.

 

This platform is the result of organic development of one line of code.  Our platform is not a set of cobbled-together acquisitions. Instead, the Scanmarket platform is one cohesive, integrated platform designed to seamlessly work together from day one.

Scanmarket’s platform is built on proven technologies including:

 

  • SQL Server database
  • LLBL Gen ORM framework for database access
  • Microsoft .NET for business logic layer
  • Frontend is implemented following the MVC pattern using ASP.NET user controls and AJAX Pro framework. AJAX is the art of exchanging data with a server, and updating parts of a web page without reloading the whole page improving performance
  • Report generation provided by GemBox Spreadsheet (Excel) and Microsoft ReportViewer (PDF)
