TechnologyAMOS - at the forefront of the technological innovation
Even the best system can lose its competitiveness from one day to the next if it is not technologically state-of-the-art and does not pave the way for new technologies.
Consequently, it has always been one of Swiss-AS primary goals to provide customers with a technologically cutting-edge software package while innovative technologies have continuously been implemented in the process of further enhancing the system.
Being written in pure JAVA, still the most popular programming language on the market today, the technological basis for a future-proof product is given:
+ The AMOS application server is compatible with Windows, Linux and all other operating systems offering a Java
Runtime – which implies scalability & flexibility with regards to any choice of hardware and OS. The client is not only
compatible with Windows, but also with Linux and MacOS.
+ The client can either be installed locally (always kept up-to-date by a fully transparent upgrade process) or directly
streamed from the application server without any local installation (Java Webstart).
+ Apart from the database backend (Sybase/Oracle), no external software components are needed to operate AMOS
neither on the client nor on the application server. Everything is delivered out of the box.
+ The AMOS architecture is completely based on open standards. No proprietary runtime system is needed.
+ The communication is fully HTTP(S) conform, which implies full support of any kind of network components such as
(reverse) proxies, stateful firewalls, etc. The complete communication can be encrypted via SLL and compressed for
low bandwidth situations.
+ The integrated secure keystore for passwords, certificates & (private) keys allows secure communication also with
+ For user authentication, a wide range of badge-readers and biometric devices are supported. Additionally, the
integration into existing identity management systems (such as Microsoft Active Directory) via LDAP and Kerberos is
possible. For standalone password authentication, the latest hash algorithms, including PBKDF2 are available.
+ E-signing solution which generates and archives signed PDF/A documents is fully integrated into the authentication
and keystore backends.
+ For flexible system integration, AMOS has an Adaptive Integration Manager
+ The integrated Report Designer allows compilation of reports & forms which can be released to the different user roles
directly inside the common user interface.
+ Highly optimized user interface for easy navigation & compressive data visualisation.
