About Consilience and the Ideate Framework
Consilience International LLC is a Platform-as-a-Service provider (PaaS) and the developer of the Ideate™ application framework (www.ideate.com). Ideate’s PaaS helps businesses brings order to their increasingly distributed and diverse IT environments.
Simply moving existing systems and services to cloud-based virtual servers solves a problem related to server provisioning, but it exacerbates the fundamental problem of enterprise architecture – maintaining unified views and execution in fragmented environments. The Ideate Framework fuses aspects of SOA and Web-style architectures to provide a new choice optimally suited for the demands of Cloud Computing. Ideate’s hybrid approach makes it easier to work with data, code and policies of all shapes and forms. The lightweight and multi-tenant Framework provides the unifying principles, the glue, necessary to hold enterprise systems together. Ideate Advantages: rapid application development and optimal code re-use; situationally-aware apps that adapt to business context; non-disruptive in-flight change management; and single-layer security, governance and version control.
The Ideate Framework is ideal for complex human workflows that are subject to routine variance and change, and can benefit from dynamic decision support (research & development; patient management; investigation-work; emergency response; project management; etc). Ideate is also well suited for instrumenting network and sensor monitoring applications, such as automatic server provisioning, energy/utility management and Social Network Analysis.
