Supply Cloud

OVium uses web service technology to integrate purchasers and suppliers. OVium implements XSD message discovery protocols, REST, and standard oriented WSDL protocols such such as WS-*, Transaction, Reliability, Policy, Security, Trust as BPEL. For simple implementations with limited service dialogue, REST provisions information transactions adequately however for more complex purchase requisition workflows, WSDL provides the necessary formalism, with WS-RS extensions for ad hoc REST requirements.

Protocol

OVium masters the dominant REST and WSDL web service protocols of the cloud environment to harness far flung internet computational and knowledge resources. OVium further employs specialized protocols such as Java-RMI and CORBA-IIOP for specific customer cloud requirements. OVium facilitates protocol implementations as customer needs for flexibility, performance, reliability or security warrant.

Orchestration

Cloud computing along with knowledge and social network development require message workflow dependencies to be orchestrated between endpoints. Hence cloud resources require dialogue between a group of endpoints beyond simple point-to-point message transaction. OVium supports orchestration with enterprise service bus (ESB) technology to route messages while coordinating pipeline or workflow. Multiple ESB's can share or load-balance orchestration efforts from distinct processing or geographic endpoints.

Methodology

OVium embraces process methodology to facilitate full cycle deployment and maintenance of products for clientele. The Ovium process methodology is proven in software development life-cycles (SDLC) and in the implementation of large corporate processes. To this purpose "Agile" and Rational Unify Process (RUP) methodologies influence OVium's approach to shape product life cycles, both internally or externally managed.
