Key Features of Our Products

2.4 Availability, Scalability and Performance

A large aspect of application and system architecture is ensuring that a system will perform well, scale to the required number of users, and have minimum down time. These different goals—performance, scalability, and availability—are related, and are based on a set of core concepts that apply to almost any type of system.

2.4.1 Availability

Although “availability” is a critical metric for enterprise systems, it can be defined in multiple ways. In general, classify system availability by measuring the percent of time in which the system is usable. But by considering only this fact, system availability is not calculated perfectly. There are some more consideration is required for calculating system availability. One of them is counting planned down time, such as for maintenance time. Generally the down time is the time to fix the problem of a system or some maintenance time or any other time when system is not available or as any time the users are unable to access the system. For large integrated system this down time is a vital fact. Because, every parts of the system are dependent and connected with each other. So, if any parts goes down then other parts will suffer. For these reasons, the availability, down time and overall system design technique is very important. Our design ensures that, our system availability is over 99% and very low downtime. We achieved very low down time for our built-in powerful monitoring and repair engines and less dependency among the parts of the system. We apply various techniques so that the overall system is almost available in every time even a parts of the system goes down.

2.4.2 Scalability

Scalability is another key system feature when building applications or infrastructure for the enterprise. Scalability measures how a system’s capacity can grow to handle increased load; the upper limit of this growth and the efficiency with which that growth occurs are key defining factors of how “scalable” a system is.

2.4.3 Performance

Although performance and scalability are tightly related and often considered at the same time. How well a system performs is usually measured by the amount of time it takes to respond to specific user requests, or to accomplish a specific task. Our system performance is in very satisfactory level. We always emphasis on application’s performance during development time by testing it from various aspects. We always maintain a high performance level.

2.5 Centralized Control

Our whole system is controlled from a central server which has powerful engines and services. These powerful engines and services allow the system stable, available, secured and more manageable. It has powerful monitoring system, so that any chance of failure or any chance of unauthorized access, etc. are immediately prevented. This Centralized Control System has lot more unique features that our unique invention to make the overall system work properly. Moreover, our most attractive service in the system is using Artificial Intelligence. There are lots of artificial intelligent services / process to facilitate the system, the users and the company in every situation. This intelligent system makes the overall system very easy to handle.

2.6 Real Time Exception Handling

Our Exception Management is well encapsulated and abstracts the details of logging and reporting from the application’s business logic. It is capable of generating metrics that can be monitored by operator’s to provide an insight into the current health and status of the system. This helps to create an application that can quickly and accurately notify operators of any problems it is experiencing, and can provide valuable information of assist developers and support services with problem resolution.

2.7Highly Updatable

Our proposed system is highly updatable and capable of changing at a moment’s notice. Our architectural design provides very easy way to change or update any parts of the existing system without hampering the other parts or the functionality of other parts of the system.

Although this seems a frightening proposition, we have great many tools to ensure that systems are designed to change rapidly while reducing the negative impact these alterations can bring. One such tool is design patterns. Design patterns represent a wealth of collective knowledge and experience. The proper use of these patterns will help to ensure that systems are malleable, enabling rapid change.

One of the most widely used creational patterns is the Factory. This pattern is aptly named, as it calls for the use of a specialized object solely to create other objects, much like a real-world factory. We modified and furnished this designed technique with the latest technological knowledge and experience so that the design exhibits a unique solution to enable the whole system to change or modify or update at any time.

Figure 1: Factory pattern logical model

2.8 Plug and Play Modules

We design the systems in such a way that any modules can be attached with the present existing system by only deploying it. The Central Control System of the existing system automatically allows it to register and works with the present system even modules are developed by different vendors. Our powerful intelligent Engine which resides in the Central Control System is fully responsible for attaching the modules. So modules are fully plug and play with the system and it requires only the deployment of the modules in the System.

To be able to get this facility from the present system, the modules should be developed by following the specification of the Central Control System only.

2.9 Real Time Performance Monitoring System

A powerful Engine and some services are able to monitor the System or Application performance. Firstly, Application monitoring is used to ensure that applications are functioning correctly and are performing optimally; this is referred to as health monitoring. Secondly, monitor the performance characteristics of the servers, because this may allow us to spot usage trends and enhance or optimize the applications accordingly. Health monitoring enables the system to identify the conditions that contribute to system failure and take preventive action.

Our Monitoring System allows the System to capture and analyze the performance data that applications, services, and drivers provide. This information can be used to determine system bottlenecks and fine-tune system and application performance.

The System uses many diagnostic procedures and monitoring tools. Furthermore, we provide monitoring during System development so that the System will be reliable in the Enterprise Environment.

Highly Secured System

Design choices for securing a system affect performance, scalability and usability. There is usually a tradeoff between security vs. performance and usability. The more secure a system is, generally the more we have compromised in terms of performance and usability. When designing a secure system, we determine all the possible threats, vulnerabilities, and attacks and choose the techniques to implement security based on threat mitigation first and performance second.

Our proposed System combined security, Application performance and usability in such way that the system will be tightly secured without sacrificing the overall performance and usability. Our security system has been developed on client authentication, hashing algorithms, cryptography techniques, and digital signatures.

Using Cryptography techniques we provide data privacy, tamper detection, and authentication by encrypting the data being transmitted between the server and client, assuming there is a pre-shared secret between them that has not been exposed.

We implement Security at various stages of Development; the SD3 framework has three core concepts:

  • Secure by Design means that you have taken the appropriate steps to ensure that the overall design of the product is secure from the outset. Include threat modeling at the design phase and throughout the project to identify potential vulnerabilities. Use secure design, coding, and testing guidelines.
  • Secure by Default means that the product is released so that it is secure out of the box. Ensure that only the least amount of privilege is required by user accounts to run your application.
  • Secure in Deployment means that the system is maintainable after installation. If security vulnerability is discovered and a patch is necessary, ensure that the fix is fully tested internally and then issued in a timely manner.

We provide various security features and services to secure the database from any unauthorized access or any attempt of destruction or alternation. Our database security is performed in a number of layers. Whole database administration work can be controlled from the Application. Security features are applied here and a continuous monitoring system monitors the actions on the database, such as accessing, altering, updating, permission, role and many other facts. Moreover, a specially organized Data Access Layer performs the second level of checking to secure the database.

Power full audit trail make the solution more traceable, error free and efficient.

· Auditing actions include tracking:

o Resource access and usage

o Successful and unsuccessful logon attempts

o Application failures

· Auditing benefits include:

o Help for administrators to detect intrusions and suspicious activities

o Traceability for legal, non-repudiation disputes

o Diagnosis of security breached

Our Application Security implements at

      • User control
      • User Role basis accessibility/privilege control setup
      • Form basis accessibility/privilege controls setup
      • Application Menu basis accessibility/privilege controls setup
      • Unlimited user according to user license agreement

2.10 Zero Impact Installation

Our installation and deployment features are so flexible and completely automatic. It does not necessary to take help from windows registry or no need to enter any registry entry. Thus installing and uninstalling is not a very complicated task. During setup it will install everything necessary for the system, such database creation and customization, company’s personal information customization, setting up the security level, setting up the control system level and many more. Everything will be done automatically by the minimal user interaction. So it is very easy to deploy the whole system by some few mouse click and text information.

2.11 Easy Maintenance and Cost Effective

The overall system requires very less afford to maintain. Maximum critical maintenance is controlled by the built in Intelligent Services from the Central Control System. The whole system can be maintained from the one single point. And in maximum case it will be done automatically and a very few maintenance will be needed by the System Administrator. So the maintenance cost falls down noticeably for the architectural design of the System.

2.12 Effective Reporting

With every module, a powerful reporting facility has been integrated; Flexible reporting modules, categorized reporting facility, to facilitate the Top level management with their precise required information. And we are also offering any sort of customization report request for each of the individual modules.

Project Management Plan:

Task Plan and Schedule

The project for financial module will follow the parts in a systematic manner as mentioned below:


At this stage, the existing system at the Summit Group is studied and the needs and demands are analyzed. Based on the study, suggestions were formulated.

This part encompasses the initial analysis of a business need to determine the feasibility and scope of the Payroll system and the gap between the proposed systems. During this part, the focus is on defining the details of the customer need in order to determine the size of the project and the scope of MIS involvement. By the end of this part, Summit Group will need to clearly define and understand all the required needs by all parties involved.

To accomplish this state, developers put himself in the place of the client and try to know the exact client requirements. This is a very crucial stage as client needs that must be met by the implementation project will be defined. The requirements are mapped to standard application functionality and gaps identified. As gaps between requirements and functionality emerge, they will be resolved by documenting workarounds, alternative solutions, or by changing the underlying business process.

All the information gathered are then translated into project requirements. Different tasks at this stage are summarized below:

· Examine the business need or opportunity

· Write a clear statement of project objectives

· Know the difference between wants and needs

· Negotiate the requirements definition interactively with the customer

· Conduct a thorough and comprehensive analysis

· Document the results unambiguously in sufficient detail


During this Part, the information outlined in the Project Workbook and the Requirements Documentation will be used to create all the design documents. The customer and technical resources should be involved throughout the process to ensure all the requirements are incorporated into design. The design documents will undergo various stages of reviews and approvals, before moving to support the development work. The following diagram illustrates the design process.


The primary purpose of this part is to determine whether the software developed and unit tested in parts 3 and 4 is ready for implementation. Each testing stage will have a unique testing team, who will define the work plan, approach, scope and entry and exit criteria for each stage. Each testing stage should be completed and all fixes applied, before moving on to the next testing stage. The results of all the testing stages will determine whether to move forward to the Implementation part. Based on the size and scope of the project, the Practice and Program Manager will determine the types of testing that are applicable and the level of testing required. The major focus of this Phase will be introducing the new software product to end-users and developing a detailed conversion plan. The Implementation Part, managed by the Program Manager, Practice Manager and a representative from the impacted business area, will primarily involve developing the transition workshops for training, measuring job-task metrics and ensuring the conversion plan milestones are met. The results of each component of the Implementation Part will drive the go-live timeline set forth and will ensure production accuracy.
