FAQs on the Revolutio Platform

Data management in Revolutio eliminates the need for traditional extract, transform and load tools. It integrates data extraction and transformation with core compute capability providing for much faster compute across systems. The data management studio allows for flexible front-end table creation, relational database setup, database switching for different application, maintenance of multiple instances of the same application, data segregation and multiple modes of integration across the existing IT infrastructure.

Computation studio serves as the brain and nerve centre of the platform and applications built thereon. It allows for stateless compute, drag and drop use of a vast library of functions and models and data transformations. The computation studio houses advanced cognitive capabilities likes machine learning, image processing and natural language processing.

Revolutio has a process canvas that enables creation of user workflow in much the same way as you create a flow-chart depicting processes in an organization. The process canvas lets to create the user journey including input forms, viewing screens, analytics, schedulers and many other components. You can customize your workflow by visual on-screen elements and configurations.

Revolutio comes with in integrated business intelligence layer. You don’t need any additional BI tools for your application. Besides stunning visuals and analytics, Revolutio BI combines the power of the data management studio and the computation studio to remove hassles of connecting multiple components and setting up gateways to connect to different cloud services.

Yes. Revolutio can serve as your BI tool. For this purpose, specific components of Revolutio are offered as a separate package. The data management studio, computation studio and visualization layer are offered together as a separate package under the name RevolutioBI.

Yes. Revolutio can be used as an API manager. Given its stateless capabilities, you can use the API manager purely for integration.

Yes. Revolutio Portals are designed specifically to enable you to create your website or customer portals or employee engagement portals. Revolutio portals work best with the rest of Revolutio but can be used separately as a no-code web development platform.

Revolutio Portals are an extension to Revolutio and an integral component of the platform. While you can use Revolutio Portals as a content management system and integrate it with applications you build, Revolutio itself is a comprehensive no-code platform that goes far beyond the utilities of web portal creation and maintenance.

Yes. Revolutio can be used as a reporting tool for use cases like regulatory reporting and internal MIS reporting. Revolutio provides capabilities, though, that go far beyond simple reporting use cases.

Revolutio FAQs for enterprises

Revolutio is an enterprise grade platform that helps end-users and resident developers build fit for purpose enterprise applications.

Revolutio is architected for high-speed compute. With the latest in parallel processing technology, optimization of memory and CPU usage and a massive library of pre-built compute functions, Revolutio provides a significant speed advantage over existing enterprise applications.

Revolutio reduces time to build and deploy applications by 3x and reduces total cost of ownership by half.

Yes. Revolutio is architected for the cloud. However, Revolutio is not cloud native so it doesn’t require you to use a specific cloud or a cloud service. This reduces dependencies on cloud providers and keeps long term cloud management costs in control. Revolutio is able to achieve this because all services required to run, optimize , orchestrate, host and monitor applications are on-board services within the Revolutio platform.
