Be flexible with cutting-edge technology

The architecture of the Rules Toolset© provides great flexibility as both the Modeler and the Report Generator are WCF Web Services.

In general, the Rules Toolset© system can be utilized as a single web service following the “Software as a Service” approach.

An example of the Rules Toolset as a single service An example of the Rules Toolset as a single service
The service is called passing the input values and an array of report names to be generated, and responses with a list of Azure urls where the reports are stored
The modeler as a service The modeler as a service
The modeler sarvice can be consumed with or without the Quality Control support
The Report Generator as a Service The Report Generator as a Service
The Report Generator can be combined with additional web services for Azure Storage, conversion to .pdf etc

This application and approach is extremely important from both a technical point of view as well as from a business point of view. From a technical point of view this approach allows the development of applications that use the system as part of a desired workflow where the web site can utilize the system as a web server getting the report as a .PDF document. From a business point of view, this approach gives companies the opportunity to introduce new forms of delivery for the product in terms of specific product configurations for different vendors and clients in the global marketplace. Additionally it doesn’t require an expensive up-front investment since the followed SaaS model is actually a “pay-as-you-go” charge scheme. 

The following image demonstrates the different tools of Rules Toolset© that can be used during design or production time.

In terms of the issue of sensitive data managed by the Rules Toolset©, such as personal genetic and medical data, the solution is based on SQL Server Azure built-in security features and PKI infrastructure and is managed without the need of changing the application of the Rules Toolset©.

The Rules Toolset© is available as a Windows Azure hosted service, assuring scalability, performance and security.
