Strategic Thought Launches Active Application Accelerator Tuesday 19 February 2002 PDF Print Strategic Thought, the e-engineering company and IBM Premier Partner, today announced the launch of Active Application Accelerator (Triple A) to promote the rapid development of new applications by starting with an immediate deliverable of 65% of an application infrastructure. Based on IBM WebSphere products, Triple A is a combination of software and professional services from Strategic Thought designed to provide customers with a trusted application within weeks. Following a half-day information gathering consultation Strategic Thought will provide a proof of concept exercise within 5 days of initiation, using Triple A. On completion of the proof of concept exercise a fixed price, fixed-timescale, commercial contract appropriate to the project model will be agreed. A further feature of Triple A is that payment for the software can be staggered over the service life of the application and will not commence until the application is accepted and installed on the customers own servers. Richard Higgs, managing director at Strategic Thought said, "Integral to the development of Active Application Accelerator (Triple A) has been the IBM approved WebSphere Innovation Centre (WIC) built in our London office. The WIC will enable us to design and build applications using live data and recreating customer’s environment, so that it can be fully tested before hand over and implementation at the customer’s site." The IBM WebSphere, Java based software stack used within Triple A is open, scalable and platform independent and it is also acknowledged as a long-term solution. Higgs explains, "Normally, fast and cheap implies hacked and legacy. The problem in the past has been to deliver robust systems rapidly whilst ensuring maximum future lifecyle. Triple A solves this conundrum. Strategic Thought places emphasis on time and reputation, simply because they are our customers’ biggest cost risks." Strategic Thought will provide support for all Triple A applications for a period of five years, including hosting if required.
