Since 1982, Revelation Software (Revelation) have specialised in the creation and marketing of database driven business application development products. This extensive portfolio of products includes application development tools, deployment products and companion services. These all combine to enable professional software developers to quickly and successfully implement dynamic network and internet based applications.
Initially used to build DOS based software applications, these tools were enhanced during the 1990's to provide developers with the ability to create leading Windows applications. The toolset was then enhanced to enable desktop applications to be extended to provide fully interactive web based solutions. Throughout this time, the company has continually supported the leading PC operating systems for business, including Windows, Novell and Linux. For the web, IIS, Apache, Samba and most mobile technologies have been supported.
The companies strategy of ensuring the preservation of information systems and investments by its developer and user community has enabled its customers to reuse, extend, enhance and leverage their investments in skills. At the same time, Revelation developers and users are able to successfully protect their investments in their business driven applications.
Revelation applications are characterised by the enduring nature of the solution implemented using its products. The company continues to invest in technologies that enable systems implemented in its earliest development tools to operate successfully on modern 32-bit client and network operating systems, and also to be extended to the web.
Most software applications created in the 1980's using Revelation tools were department level solutions designed for only a handful of concurrent users. However, through a consistent technology that has evolved over the life of the company, many of these systems have scaled to much larger numbers of concurrent users without any measurable degradation in performance or reliability. Some of these systems are now managing thousands of users (tens of thousands over the web) and one such system in Australia processes in excess of 2,000,000 database transactions each and every day.
Revelation operates a policy of continual innovation to provide software developers with new tools that exploit the capabilities of the latest operating systems, network computing platforms and programming languages and techniques. For example AJAX can be easily integrated into web based solutions and .NET features in many OpenInsight deployments and OpenInsight itself.
The combination of this focus, a commitment to continuous improvement and innovation has enabled Revelation to thrive and prosper in the challenging and ever-changing market of application development tools and deployment technologies and with it, Revelations developers, clients and end-user as well.
