Technology
Architecture 
The applications communicate through a middle layer with the database (3-tier architecture). Here Microsoft Internet Information Server (MS IIS) functions as a request broker.

Internet technology
In developing the platforms Dankers & Frank extensively uses many aspects and advantages of the internet technology. We have set the following important quality criteria for implementation:

  1. The system does not require installation of client applications. The clients may be downloaded 'as is' and upon starting automatically connects to the database via the intranet. New versions are presented to the user automatically using 'smart update'. This minimises application and version management.
  2. Maximum independence of resellers, software components and if need be Virtual Machines. No ActiveX components and Java. The entire platform is developed in C (MFC) with the exception of the use of Microsoft IIS and the browsers technology. The application communicates through COM with IE.
  3. The accessibility over the network should be guaranteed. Therefore only the HTTP and FTP protocols and the standard ports are used. Business operations standards are thus maximised. The platform is also very well suited for companies without dedicated networking.
  4. Various database platforms are supported.
  5. Integration/ connectivity with other resource and asset management software are optionally available.

 

Cloud version
As of 2010 there is a cloud version of the IOP platform available for our customers. It may be implemented accessible straight from the internet or fully secured by VM and VPN.

ICT support 
The Dankers & Frank systems may be deployed 'corporate-wide' (globally) with minimal effort and workload of your ICT department. Reliability (uptime), data integrity en performance should of course be managed in cooperation with your corporate network and database administrator(s). The application management is based on a customer-tuned SLA.
