We are passionate about helping mid and large organizations transition from heritage architectures to real-time distributed systems that embrace the principles of reactive programming. (Resilient, scalable and message driven).
S4N helps you to overcome your business challenges and to create the most attractive experience for final users in web channels, mobile, and interactive in-stores. We trust Liferay to accomplish it, by recognizing them as the best most cost-efficient, robust and secure technology that can be offered to our customers.
Liferay, the leading open source portal in business software, has been recognized, for the sixth consecutive year, as a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals, making them the best company in implementing software products.
S4N executes its fast data initiatives with the fastest distributed Always-On database in the market: Apache Cassandra, an open source technology delivered by DataStax and named as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems.
We are DataStax's first and only partner in Latin America to date. With its technology, we have delivered software solutions to large companies that require a scalable elastic database, high-velocity performance, and real time information of data centers distributed among different geographical points.
The Colombian Automatic Clearing House (ACH Colombia) has based its data exploitation strategy on using Cassandra as a critical tool to speed up the process for integrating the data from their different platforms (Banking Clearing, Online Payment and Social Security Payment) into a consolidated view, so their customers - from Colombian banks and financial institutions - can access ACH’s information at almost-real time speed.
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Cloud is the new normal. The traditional rationale, of investing huge amounts in hardware upfront, is no longer valid. The correct approach involves designing, deploying and managing your applications in such a way that it takes full advantage of the cloud and all it has to offer. Scaling when required, reserving computing capacity, when it can be easily planned. and creating a resilient environment for your applications of critical mission are initiated from day one of production.
S4N designs the applications for its customers, so they can be utilized in the most efficient way possible, leveraging every design with the almost unlimited computing and storage capabilities of AWS. As a result, S4N customers will only pay for the AWS resources they consume, so they will never have to worry again about unexpected growth in their traffic, which can shut down their application.
Copa Airlines, one of the largest airlines in Latin America, trusts S4N to operate its website www.copaair.com on AWS. This website, built on the Liferay Enterprise Portal, manages thousands of flight-bookings on a daily basis, in a high-availability and scalability environment and during peak-demand hours. It also provides seamless responsiveness to its customers all year round.
By adopting and mastering Lightbend (previously Typesafe) emerging technologies, S4N has introduced, in the traditional corporate environment, a new range of architectures, concepts, and opportunities to modernize the design and development of distributed and reactive applications in some of the top financial, insurance and pension fund companies in Latin America.
Lightbend Reactive Platform, which includes Akka, Spark, Java, Scala and Play technologies, allows us to develop applications that are message-driven, elastic, resilient and responsive.. These will modernize your business, taking it to the next high performance level.
Sura, one of the largest insurance companies in Latin America, with more than 50,000 employees in 10 countries, has chosen Lightbend technologies and S4N expertise to leverage its commercial strategy online, in large retail stores and in allied banks, developing an integrated approach to their alternative commercial channels with a unified platform that supports it, seamlessly.
Get to know what Lightbend says about its Reactive Platform:
Scala: Scala is a general purpose programming language designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. Scala is bundled with a rich set of developer tools, resulting in productivity comparable to languages like Ruby or Python, while retaining the performance advantages of Java. Scala emphasizes scalability—large development teams, large codebases, and large numbers of CPU cores.
Play: Play Framework is a web development framework with Scala and Java APIs that empowers developers to build applications with an ease unparalleled on the JVM. Some of its features are: rapid development, massive scalability, it's ideal for cloud, and it integrates with everything.
Spark: Apache Spark is a lightning-fast, distributed compute engine for processing large, streaming datasets.
Akka: Akka is an actor-based message-driven runtime for managing concurrency, elasticity and resilience on the JVM with support for both Java and Scala. Some of its features are: focus on business logic, resilient self-healing, based on the actor model, easier modernization migration, and ideal for cloud.
Red Hat Mobile Application Platform speeds up the development, integration, deployment, and management of mobile apps for businesses. The platform offers a suite of features that embraces collaborative app development, centralized control of security and back-end integration, and deployment in the cloud or on-premise. Enterprise mobile developers and DevOps teams can build mobile apps and services that can be used and reused across multiple organization-wide mobile projects.
Get to know what RedHat says about its technologies:
Kubernetes: Is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.
Ansible: Ansible Tower gives teams the power to scale IT automation, manage complex deployments and speed up productivity. Automation for teams. For the enterprise. For everyone.
OpenShift: Based on top of Docker containers and the Kubernetes container cluster manager, OpenShift 3 adds developer and operational centric tools to enable rapid application development, easy deployment and scaling, and long-term lifecycle maintenance for small and large teams and applications.
