The iFactum Web Appliance is a pre-configured and optimized system that provides all the necessary infrastructure an organization needs to build and maintain a corporate Intranet or business Internet web site, and to automate its business processes over the web.
The iFactum Appliance is built and configured before it is shipped to our customer and can be installed in minutes with minimal effort.
Economic pressures have cut deeply into IT budgets across organizations, both large and small. As a result, the ability to control and accurately assess the total costs of an IT purchase has moved from important to imperative. IT departments know how frustrating this can be, having seen actual total costs often rise far beyond their original estimate. This is especially true for solutions comprised of multiple products from different vendors: the more complex the solution, the harder it is to gauge total costs and often the higher the total costs. In response to multi-product, multi-vendor, complex solutions is the growing popularity of IT appliances, which offer complete turn-key solutions from a single vendor.
In a traditional scenario, customers willing to implement a web content management system or an infrastructure to automate business processes over the web, would normally have to procure the various components from different vendors and rely on their own IT team or an external systems integrator for the installation and configuration of these components, as a pre-requisite for the deployment of the web content management application.
This process not only involves high costs but, also, requires great effort and a very long time. Server hardware must be procured from one of the many reliable providers in the market such as IBM, Sun, Dell, or HP. The selection of the Operating System to be installed will depend on the support provided by the web content management application: MS-Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, etc. The Web application server software will also depend on the platforms supported by the content management application (.NET, J2EE, etc.) and the customer would have to obtain, install and configure the required middleware (J2EE server such as IBM WebSphere, .NET Framework, or any other App Server.). Finally, a Database server software such as MS-SQL Server, IBM DB2, Oracle, Sybase or MySQL needs to be installed to manage the data of your web site and web applications. Once all these pre-requisites are in place, you will be ready for the installation and configuration of your web content manager and the set up of your Intranet or Internet site.
It is very common that the customer ends up with relationships with four or more different vendors: hardware, app server middleware, database, systems integrator and the web content manager provider. This not only represents challenges during the implementation of your solution but, also, may create problems when technical support or upgrades are required. A technical support task or an upgrade may require the intervention of several of these vendors and service providers.
The main goal of the iFactum Appliance is to eliminate problems, facilitate installation, reduce costs and speed up the process of implementing your Intranet or Internet Web site and to convert it into a business productivity tool.
With the iFactum Appliance, our customers are able to implement their Internet or Intranet sites in few days and have a single point of contact for technical assistance and support.
