Integration, integrity, and efficiency
TESISQUARE is extremely proud of its ability to integrate its products with other systems. Adobe ColdFusion supports high performance and security in the TESISQUARE platform, whether it’s synchronising data from internal components or from third-party applications, such as enterprise resource planning and product lifecycle management systems.
“TESISQUARE also uses Adobe ColdFusion to query network directory services, including Microsoft Active Directory and the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol,” says Giaccardi. “This allows our applications to leverage directory data into their processes.”
TESISQUARE is also creating greater efficiencies in its data centres by virtualising its Adobe ColdFusion deployment. The company currently runs more than 200 instances of Adobe ColdFusion on about 120 virtual servers, loading independent applications on its own Java Virtual Machine. Isolating applications from each other this way prevents problems with one application from affecting the rest.
Virtualisation supports load balancing and failover, too. If one server instance fails, the web server connector in Adobe ColdFusion can automatically switch loads to another server. TESISQUARE also maximises the return on its investments in hardware with virtual machines.
“Because TESISQUARE can run multiple instances of Adobe ColdFusion on the same physical machine, we can optimise hardware utilisation without any performance loss from our applications,” says Giaccardi.
Users in more than 80 countries use the TESISQUARE platform, and the company’s growth strategy includes continued investments in Adobe ColdFusion, including the underlying technology and developers, technical consultants, and analysts. They help TESISQUARE stay focused on increasing the efficiency and interoperability of its collaborative digital ecosystem.
“The integration capabilities in Adobe ColdFusion help TESISQUARE continually find new and better ways to synchronise and integrate the flows of data and goods for our customers,” says Giaccardi. “Adobe ColdFusion helps us improve collaboration, visibility, and control with fast, flexible, and scalable solutions.”
