IFS Applications is built on open standards so users are not locked into any particular technology. The service oriented component architecture of IFS Applications means it can be extended and updated. Each software component is compatible with every other, yet capable of running independently. IFS Applications is therefore an agile product that handles change and long-term evolution which means IFS can say with confidence that IFS Applications is one of the most user-friendly business software systems on the market.
IFS Applications is comprised of over 100 business components, which in turn are made up from over 6,000 smaller software components. Each component has a defined purpose and interface that describes what it does; this allows change and evolution within a component without affecting other components.
It enables users to choose only the business components they need. Other components can be added without disrupting those already in place. This results in an operational system that can evolve in an orderly way without the ‘big-bang’ approach required by a non-component-based, monolithic system.
