CATAPULT™ drastically accelerates new digital product/service development

We, THIS IS AWESOME – jointly with Red Hat®, the world’s leading provider of open source software solutions – have composed an awesome technology stack, a modern Mobile & Web Application Platform that rocks: CATAPULT™. It bridges from rapid app development to proven high scalability seamlessly – ensuring business continuity.

No interruption in operations or need to rewrite software, when the idea meets the expected business success. CATAPULT™ runs on-premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid cloud infrastructures. Enriched with business intelligence and preselected proven components it is the ideal and comprehensive toolbox to get ideas to reality within weeks, not months – without compromising availability, scalability and security.

We love technology.

8 convincing reasons for our technology platform

  • 1 | Super fast development

  • We move from concept to production at Silicon Valley startup-speed – fast and smart – by empowering the developers with toolkits: IDEs and SDKs as well as pre-integrated components and APIs — without compromising an enterprise-grade massively scalable and high secure operations.
  • 2 | Focus on the product idea

  • The team entirely focuses on getting the idea to reality – based on CATAPULT™’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) infrastructure – and is not distracted setting up servers, network infrastructure or building “commodity” backend services. The platform drives innovation and drives apps with the potential for a market disruption.
  • 3 | Reusability

  • Easy-to-integrate, reusable back-end services (Backend-as-a-Service, BaaS) as well as preselected, proven, pre-integrated and reusable business solution components (see below) – acting as a blueprint for all projects enhances productivity of the team and drives efficient reuse of complex backend connections. Further reusability reduces time-to-market and the platform costs are shared with all projects.
  • 4 | Flexibility and agility

  • Use of open APIs, microservice-based architecture,enterprise application integration (EAI) technologies (Apache Camel, Red Hat® JBoss® Fuse …), business process engines like Red Hat® JBoss BPM Suite, as well as container-based deployment (Docker, Kubernetes …) allows greatest agile flexibility. Technology innovation drives flexibility. Embrace constant technology and product innovation.
  • 5 | BI and Pivoting

  • Use of big data aggregation, KPIs, business analytics, business intelligence (BI), A/B testing, multivariante testing and business model tuning capabilities allows the team pivoting and tweaking – from a prototype to a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to a full-fledged and fully integrated product/service – adopting customer, market and business needs with greatest agility on any device.
  • 6 | Zero vendor lock-in

  • Use of open technologies, open standards, open interfaces as well as open source software and standard toolkits – as well as a range of deployment options: on premise, public cloud or hybrid cloud – avoids any proprietary technology and any vendor lock-in that you may regret later – especially with your success. Reduce dependency from 3rd party SaaS services to a minimum needed – they may be shut down as some have experienced painfully with parse.com.
  • 7 | Silicon Valley out of the box

  • CATAPULT™ is our secret sauce, that helps us to realize our generated and pre-validated business ideas in the most efficient way – it is Design Thinking applied, Lean Startup applied, Lean Marketing applied, Lean Analytics applied … – in a nutshell: Silicon Valley applied!
  • 8 | Enterprise grade

  • CATAPULT™ is ready to scale from day one, has enterprise-class scalability, reliability and data security – and is addressing important topics like monitoring, legal and governance.
