Apex Unify!™ is a full-stack distributed platform for semantic interoperability that is designed to overcome traditional technical and political barriers to data sharing in highly regulated, services-based industries like healthcare and finance. It can be used by large government and commercial enterprises to share patient or client data or by companies growing by acquisition to quickly bring disparate internal IT systems into corporate alignment.
Apex Unify!™ is a set of tools, techniques and methods for semantic interoperability built from the ground up to deal with the hard technical and political problems of sharing data in highly complex or regulated industries. Unify! makes explicit, certain notions regarding data federation and interoperability that have been much debated, and turns others upside down from their academic framing, to achieve a workable federation concept in the real world. Unify! consists of several interrelated technologies, including Apex ForeverDB™, Apex BlockSync™, and Apex Synchronicity™.
Apex ForeverDB™ brings several innovations to the problem of global information management. It supports three high-level categories of data: "Eternal" storage (hence the name ForeverDB), "Long-term" storage, and "Short-term" storage. It also provides a granular model of truth over time in a world of multiple conflicting sources of truth and a novel concept of identity mapping that is uniquely suited to the problem of reconciling disparate data both internally and externally to the organization. With ForeverDB™, information loss is simply never a problem.
Apex BlockSync™ is the technology by which information held in "Eternal" storage in ForeverDB™ is synchronized across multiple systems of record, whether internal and external to the organization. The method by which information is stored in "Eternal" storage with BlockSync™ is uniform and straightforward whether the information is shared externally or not. BlockSync™ manages metadata across multiple "journals" of domain event data so that reconstructing the history of transactions across systems is fast, efficient and expressed in the language of the domain.
Apex Synchronicity™ is the technology by which information held in "Long-term" and "Short-term" storage in ForeverDB is synchronized across multiple internal systems of record. It provides internal data federation as well as a coherent methodology for identifying discrepancies across local systems and updating them as these discrepancies are resolved. With Synchronicity's lightweight design, no system of record is conscious of participating in federation at all. Legacy systems of record can be replaced without fear of losing information, ever.
Apex Agora is our virtual marketplace, offering single key management of our developer and per-seat products from a simple, cross-platform license and deployment management solution. We take the pain out of updates, trials and new purchases so you can focus solely on the value our solutions bring to your development and data management efforts.
Apex Perseus™ is a generative framework for advanced software engineering that helps you tackle the complexities of developing n-tier distributed and decentralized applications across the entire software construction lifecycle. It provides a language-oriented toolset, modern code generation techniques and devops methods geared for development of complex projects optimized for containerized deployment and global team management.
Apex Athena™ is an embedded scripting engine that can be used to generate fast, efficient bytecode or super-performant native code on a variety of popular operating systems. The languages Athena supports are familiar—Pascal, Basic, and C#—but with special syntax for transforming data in multiple formats, code generation and other innovative features. Athena is based on more than a decade of experience helping developers create extensible, data-driven software solutions.
Athena, Perseus and Muse are just the beginning. They are the foundation of Apex Unify!™ and our vision for real-time, user-centric data reconciliation, cross-enterprise interoperability and new approaches to the user experience (UX) in a world with conflicting sources of truth. Our solutions, evolved and refined in the healthcare industry, focus on storytelling, and this requires a completely different way of thinking about big data that is time-savvy, metadata-rich and uniquely fact-oriented.
