Platinum: a mature and robust platform suitable to manage the Internet / Intranet websites of your company.
Easy to install and maintain
Platinum is delivered in bundle with Tomcat and does not need complicated installation procedures. It can be configured through an administration panel by the website administrator. Once installed, it does not need continuous maintenance activities. Upgrades to new versions can be carried out in few minutes, necessary to substitute the software package with the new distribution and to upgrade the DB in just one click in the administration panel.
Scalable – Clustering
Designed and developed in J2EE technology, Platinum can be installed on a scalable hardware and software infrastructure, depending on your needs. It can be installed on any JSP-compliant Application Server, such as IBM WebSphere, WebLogic, JBoss, etc. It supports any ODBC/JDBC-compliant database: Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL, etc. Compatible with all Java-compliant operating systems: Windows, Unix, Linux, Aix, etc. It can be also installed in a clustered architecture.
Platinum can be enhanced with further ad-hoc developed applications, integrated in the same user interface. Just to mention a DAM (Digital Asset Management) System to enrich your enterprise data (assets) with digital contents, for your organization such as a hotel chain, a tour operator, a company with its own product catalogue to be navigated via a website, and so on.
High performances - Caching - Multi hosts
As the user interface is a RIA (Rich Internet Application), developed with OpenLaszlo technology, part of the working load is committed to client (the browser) with a consequent reduction in Internet bandwidth. Platinum engine has been optimized with caching tecnhniques, so as to increase performances and reduce hardware needs. Platinum allows a multi-host deployment with just one instance.
Low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
Platinum does not need expensive Hardware to run. It does not even need basic Software licenses (it can run both on commercial and Open Source environments). Feature customizations cannot be necessary, since Platinum provides built-in features and out-of-the-box modules necessary to manage a website. Any possible customization usually requires a development time worth to 50% to 70% lower than any other WCM/CMS platform.
Operational costs are very low, since operators need no technical skills and it requires an average of 8 hours to learn how it works.
