Alphinat specializes in the development and marketing of a Cloud-related next generation rapid application development (RAD) platform with a service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach that simplify and accelerate the implementation of applications, sites and portals designed to meet specific user needs while ensuring reuse of computer resources and experience within an organization.
The Company’s products respond to a real need in the market, which is definitely moving toward the deployment of reusable services and the use of organizations’ internal expertise. Market expectations show that 80% of new applications developments will be done through the development of composite applications (i.e. assembly and reuse of existing functionalities) rather than traditional applications development. The Company’s SmartGuide® suite is the result of years of experience with customers who saw the need to customize access to their data and processes based on users’ needs and situation regardless of where the computer systems were located. This capability is crucial for making it easier for citizens and businesses to deal with the government, whose operations lead to many complex procedures.
Alphinat’s unified access layer is part of the Government of Quebec’s new generation of service portals that are currently being deployed. The Company is actively working to build on this added value and to establish an integrated support, training and service delivery plan for its software solution. There is a strong potential for Alphinat’s “turnkey” solution in the public and private sector markets. Indeed, in most large
administrations, the number of retirements anticipated over the coming decade, the increasing number of procedures and their increasing complexity, and the reduction of operating budgets, require an improvement in the public and private sector’s productivity while users press for a radical simplification of the administrative burden.
