Social Services ISV Cuts Time to Market by 33%, Speeds Performance, With Move to Windows
Gibson began to develop LyncServ using Java and Linux for their supposedly lower cost - until Gibson realized that cash-strapped local agencies would have to run dual systems (the Linux for LyncServ, the Windows Server operating system for everything else), with dual costs for training, support, and hardware. Gibson also found the Java/Linux combination slow in bringing up records from the encrypted database. Working with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Hanu Software, Gibson migrated its development to the Microsoft application platform. An applicant accesses the system through a Web front end and completes an application. Business logic matches the applicant's data with program criteria and returns a list of programs, with URLs, for which the applicant qualifies.
