DRIVE is developed using Oracle technology, this strategy was adopted early on to take advantage of the scalability, reliability and on-going development of the ORACLE database.. The system comprises of a single code base that forms a fully integrated enterprise software package. The DRIVE application is modularised to assist marketing and pricing of the application. The system functions described in this document apply to the entire system and significant effort has been applied to provide complete consistency across the entire system. The following principles have been applied in developing DRIVE: - • Business Processes are created as server side re-usable software objects; we refer these to these as API’s (Application Programmatic Interfaces). • The database is fully normalised with some specific exceptions where de-normalised for performance. Maintenance of replicated data in these de-normalised structures is automatic. • Wherever possible the data uses code structures rather than free format, this is to improve data quality and enable conditional reporting. • Data and processes are designed to automatically enter default data, including business rules, as far as possible. This has the dual effect of improving efficiency for internal users and ensures external users have to enter the minimum of data. • All software changes to core product are carried out within our development environment effecting full object version control and impact analysis. • All software shipped includes all necessary migration scripts to move any customer to that release. • To enable eBusiness an additional schema (External Layer) is created with server side objects called WBP’s (Web Business Process). These units directly execute one or more API’s and also incorporates additional external user security. External users execute the same API’s as internal users again implementing the principle of single re-usable objects for business processes. The WBP objects are called from the presentation layer, which can be HTML or Java, a standard business flow structure (called the Internet Function Set – IFS) is included in the emodules. • Enhancements to the software are designed as generic code and added to the core product; new software releases incorporate this code. Functionality is differentiated for different customers through configuration. Exceptions to this are defined as non-invasive and typically comprise reports, interfaces and presentation layers; these can optionally be maintained outside core product. • Management information reporting is provided by Business Objects or ORACLE BIP, universes and business layers for all user data items are provided as part of standard product. • Reports that update the database (e.g. Sales Invoicing) are created in Oracle reports. • Going forwards the standard approach, where possible, for interoperability will utilise the latest industry standard tools such as BPEL.
