DAC Operational Components

DAC Design Studio (DS)

DAC-DS is a powerful feature-rich environment for the high-speed development, configuration and administration of data-intensive IoT business applications. Written in Java, it is a standalone application that inherits the portability and independence of platform and technology. Simple and intuitive in design, DS enables easy extraction of insight from data via its high-level ROLAP data engine and helps developers build rich user interfaces by using modern front-end frameworks and development methodologies. DS provides the access management (authorization) capabilities necessary to publish and distribute information to users based on their functional roles.

DAC Runtime (RT)

DAC-RT, the runtime component, offers sophisticated functionality to visualize, analyze, explore and create actions on data. All the analysis generated on the DAC platform is fully navigable: users can leverage drilling, pivoting, slice-and-dice, sorting functions, contextual collaboration and integrated task management by a simple right click anywhere, anytime. They can also reorganize any data view with simple drag-and-drop or by clicking on toolbar icons to obtain visualizations that meet their needs. Data, analyses and actions are easy to share across organizations, out of the box, using our unique collaboration toolset.

Platform Extensions

Push and Pull API GUI

Natively call any REST or SOAP API straight from DAC data sources, without needing complex software development tasks to retrieve data: it allows you to connect and integrate your app with external ones. DAC Connector Kit offers powerful integration options with native REST support and advanced mapping of XML and JSON messages. Connectors that leverage a third-party SDK can be included easily as native drag-and-drop elements in the DAC Page Designer and Workflow. DAC API allows you to feed your application data into your BI and Analytics tools and all other downstream applications.

Widget Designer

Widget Designer is a powerful online development environment that provides a feature-rich toolset to build complex applications with complex user interfaces.

The development environment is based on Angular and can be extended with any third-party services and front-end libraries. Using Widget Designer, you can create custom widgets with complex workflows that meet your requirements. Once created and published, your custom widgets will be available in the palette for designing pages using Page Designer. You can also create and share libraries that can be reused on multiple widgets.

Widget Hub

The Widget Hub helps you to build applications faster and use new features or bug fixing specific to widgets because it is separated from the App Composer lifecycles.

Using the Widget Hub, system administrator and application developers can:

  • Explore the dedicated catalog of widgets
  • Read the documentation of each with details such as required data sources, in & out parameters etc.
  • Easily download widgets
  • Get notified about new versions
  • Restore an old version of an upgraded widget
  • Download widgets compatible with its own installed DAC version
  • Upgrade the widget’s version without losing customizations
