Partnership with STX Next:
since August 2013 (6 years)
gComply+ provides a governance process to manage the development of products. It provides a “what-if” analysis and can be integrated with the client’s own policies. gComply+ is a logic-based solution that links to the Decernis regulatory library to provide the authoritative source document supporting any conclusion. gComply+ integrates with the clients own systems. It can be easily deployed as a remotely hosted system or as a module integrated with your product life cycle management (“PLM”) system (e.g. Oracle, SAP, Siemens, SpecPage, etc.).
STX NEXT DELIVERED
Decernis’ application was based on a fairly old technological stack. Supporting the technology was a growing challenge, and Decernis saw the need to push the project into a direction where they could switch to newer technologies with better support. Another challenge for Decernis was finding a partner who could work with their multiple offices in various locations around the globe and across multiple timezones.
STX Next introduced RESTful web services, increasing the overall scalability and modularity of the system. We also implemented a live full-text search support for the collection of millions of documents, growing every day. Additionally, developers enhanced gComply+ with a rich document generation system, automating the issuing of compliance certificates.
As the project moved forward, we were given an opportunity to choose the technologies. We decided to go with AngularJS, Django, and the latest Python version. We could work with the latest technologies and create code using the best practices possible, which made the code much cleaner and well tested.
