Sectech Suite Framework
The Sectech Suite Framework is a multi-tier, object oriented architecture built on top of Microsoft .NET. The Framework is on an incremental upgrade path - with each new release of .NET, the Framework seamlessly incorporates the upgrades without adversely impacting the business functionality that rests on top of it.
The Framework's security services offer you the most robust security architecture available in the industry. The security architecture features fine-grained security, rich audit functionality, directory services and segregation of duties into a unified security framework. It includes full auditability, including what functions they access and what changes they make in the system.
DYNAMIC AND DIVERSE SOLUTIONS
The Framework provides the best of both worlds: the benefits of a package-based solution (including a rich set of functional designs, pre-built software modules based on best practices, software architecture, and configuration tools), as well as the inherent flexibility to adapt to the unique business environments and challenges of any operation. Depending on your unique business vision or constraints, Sectech has delivery processes to satisfy your needs.
