At Revelation Software, we perceive that our resellers, who are our users, are facing challenges in the areas of security, big data, and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) when providing vertical applications to their end user base.
Our OpenInsight v10 product has been completely redesigned with a modern and intuitive design interface to address each of these issues.
With regard to security, we have provided the ability to encrypt the transfer of data to/from the server and client workstations. OpenInsight also provides an option to encrypt Data at Rest (DAR). The product also offers single sign-on, Open ID Connect, and a new authentication module that supports enhanced industry standard security processes.
To solve the big data issue, OpenInsight v10 introduces a Cloud-Based Filing System (CBFS) which will allow the OpenInsight toolset to operate on data stored in Couchbase, which is one of several cloud databases. A cloud database is an internet-accessible NoSQL database key/value store.
Today’s vertical applications need to run on multiple platforms. OpenInsight v10 has addressed the BYOD paradigm with our OpenInsight for Web (O4W) toolset included with OpenInsight v10. O4W is a rapid application development tool that lets programmers generate responsive forms, reports, and dashboards in both desktop and mobile browser mode.’s applications require.
