Clear Framework

The Clear Platform is a standards-based .Net application framework built on Microsoft best practices in enterprise Smart Client and Service architectures. The Platform allows for a modular, loosely-coupled design for applications, allowing complex collections of applications to be hosted within a single common workstation tool. The streamlined architecture allows both out-of-the-box applications and custom-built modules, to be deployed to end users in a fraction of the time of traditional multi-tier approaches. By combining the Clear Platform with Ana-Data's RAD approach to development, organizations benefit from more than ten years of experience and expertise building high-quality modular applications in a short time period, with an efficient means to add on to your workstation as your business needs grow. The Clear Platform is built leveraging the building blocks of Prism Patterns & Practices. A C# WPF smart client front end sits in front of WCF Services utilizing a SQL Server back end for metadata storage. The framework's clear separation of UI from Services, along with separation between UI components, makes customization, testing, and delivery simple.

Clear Approach

Clear Platform is designed and developed from the ground up with modular development and RAD in mind. Modular approach allows development of different components in parallel which can be later integrated in one common shell.

Benefits

Clear Platform allows rapid development of different components in parallel and provides one single common portal with sophisticated entitlements capabilities to the modules. The parallel development approach helps in reducing the time to market of the application.
