TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE

Designed for the most complex decisioning implementations

  • Cloud-native, flexible deployment, and open standards
  • Built-in security, governance, and audit/system monitoring
  • High performance, high availability, and scalability
SMARTS™ Technical Architecture

See SMARTS™ Technical Architecture in Action

CLOUD-NATIVE, FLEXIBLE DEPLOYMENT, AND OPEN STANDARDS

Technical architecture built from the ground-up for the cloud

  • Install on AWS, GCP, Azure, Aliyun or on-prem
  • Redeploy in a different environment without needing to recode
  • Use all modern enterprise application standards for decision management
    • Decision Model and Notation (DMN) for decision modeling
    • PMML for predictive modeling
    • .NET or Java for deployment in both real-time and batch modes
    • Other standards include OpenAPI, OpenMetrics, CloudEvents, JSON-RPC, OAuth, and OpenID
SMARTS™ technical architecture allows you easily integrate data, models, and operations into your business process

Integrate SMARTS™ into your business process through an API call

BUILT-IN SECURITY, GOVERNANCE, AND AUDIT/SYSTEM MONITORING

Manage users, changes, and system health at multiple levels

AUTHENTICATION

  • Use our authentication system or integrate with your own
  • Includes Microsoft AD LDS, Microsoft and Google accounts, LDAP, WS-Federation, and OAuth2 protocols

ACCESS CONTROL

  • Assign roles for each user that has been authenticated
  • Control what users can access and what tasks they can perform

CHANGE CONTROL

  • Track changes through versioning and alerts
  • Easily identify when a change is made, what was changed, and by whom

RELEASE MANAGEMENT

  • Create read-only releases that can be published in your staging and production environments for testing and deployment
  • Quickly rollback a release when necessary

SECURITY MONITORING

  • Protect against malicious interactions
  • Monitor data and programmatic calls in real-time

TECHNICAL MONITORING

  • Manage SMARTS™ like the rest of your IT system
  • Use your system monitoring tool of choice (ex. Docker Logging, Prometheus, and OpenMetrics)

HIGH PERFORMANCE, HIGH AVAILABILITY, AND SCALABILITY

Execute high-volume, complex decisions fast

  • Bytecode-level (AOT / JIT) expressions, indexing, and algorithms
  • Manage thousands of complex data sets, rules and models
  • Process millions of transactions a day
  • Adapt to your evolving enterprise architecture and governance model

Ensure your application is always up and running

REPLICATION

  • Create multiple instances of the same application
  • Replicate specific code, data, and user repositories

LOAD BALANCER

  • Distribute the work of your application through our built-in load balancer
  • Meet your desired uptime and response time requirements
