On-premise provision is the right choice if the software needs to be adapted or internal company guidelines which (for example) forbid the storage of data outside of the IT infrastructure need to be observed. You are relying on your IT landscape’s established processes and services and can take advantage of the varied options of the individualization and integration of DHC VISION, e.g. our white label solution for tailoring to your corporate identity. DHC VISION based on a multi-layer architecture:

Client: DHC VISION is a web application and as such can run on web browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox), as well as on tablets. This ensures easy access to information without time-consuming installations at the client. Only authors who draft documents or models need an additional, included add-in, which can be installed via the software distribution. Thanks to this add-in, you can process information in DHC VISION by using the standard Microsoft Office applications that users are already familiar with. The DHC VISION interface has been designed with people with disabilities in mind.

Server: The DHC VISION server is based on the widely distributed application server Wildfly (formerly JBoss). The server has a modular setup and consists of dedicated components which can communicate with each other via well-defined interfaces. So, for example, conversion components provide a PDF preview of documents in various formats. In on-premise operation, the DHC VISION server can be integrated into the management of users in an existing active directory landscape.

Database: The DHC VISION data is stored in a central Microsoft SQL server database. This is controlled via JDBC/ODBC.
