Modern tech stack
We implemented ICEFLO NextGen as a modern web application and, using our extensive experience in enterprise-scale HTML5, chose a suitable set of technologies, including React, TypeScript and D3. These enabled rapid assembly of a responsive interface, adhering to modern web standards.
A server-side REST API was developed in Java, providing an abstraction over the pre-existing Oracle database. The team selected the JSON Web Token standard for authentication, and introduced WebSockets for delivery of notifications and content updates. Real-time chat was implemented via Twilio.
While the new release of ICEFLO looks elegant and modern, its beauty is much more than skin deep. With Scott Logic’s UX-led approach, the design of the application moved from a forms-based interface towards a flexible and user-centric experience. Users can tailor dashboards to suit their specific needs, allowing them to work in a more focused and efficient manner.
