Use SolaaS to connect your data to the right people and to share it across your enterprise.

Do you have data that is different in every system?

Perhaps you have an army of people re-keying information using slightly different formats into various systems and partners? Or, do you have information that is always late? Processes that cannot operate before the overnight data sharing job?

Responsiv SolaaS can share data across your enterprise in real time, and supports multiple formats and interfaces.

Use SolaaS to expose sets of APIs to partners and customers. Separate internal and external users, and shape the demand to prioritise the right users.

Perhaps a problem with authenticating the source of information and instructions?

Or do you have a website bogged down by RPA clients?

Responsiv SolaaS can help secure and improve the reliability and responsiveness of your partner and supply chain communications.

Use SolaaS to automate individual processes. For example an HR onboarding, expenses, or work H&S incident tracking.

Do you have a particular area of the business that struggles with consistent quality of service?

Perhaps a problem with recruiting sufficient staff?

Responsiv SolaaS can address these pount problems in a way that can grow with the business to deliver a consistent enterprise solution.

Use SolaaS to provide a decision service for partners, mobile, and internal users.

Cloud Hosting

Responsiv Cloud 

Responsiv provide our hosted managed services from 4D UK data centres based across the south of England. Each location is accredited and can provide dedicated connections to the Public Services Network (PSN) and have PCI compliance.

Our Hosted managed Services include all hosting and management costs for planned data use. Additional charges may be levied for unplanned storage or network capacity.

Responsiv Cloud is regulated and controlled

ISO27001 is the leading certification for supporting information security requiring annual audits of information security management systems, physical data centre security and internal processes.

ISO27001 helps to ensure that:

    • Risks and threats to information security are properly assessed and managed
    • Physical security processes are properly implemented and enforced
    • Audits are regularly conducted including tests of security, incident management, business continuity and security monitoring

By holding the ISO27001 certification it demonstrates compliance with regulatory and contractual requirements for security, privacy, incident reporting and IT governance.

ISO27001

Microsoft Azure

We use Azure to host custom services that will be part of a larger Microsoft ecosystem, or that have been purchased from the Microsoft Marketplace. These services are fully managed by Responsiv and provided as a Service to you.

Our Azure services are often available as self-hosted solutions to allow you to incorporate them into your own Microsoft hosting agreements, and position them into your environment appropriately.

Azure hosting is available across the world, however for most of our UK customers the UK hosting locations are used to accommodate GDPR and other regulatory needs.

IBM Cloud

Responsiv Cloud uses the IBM cloud platform for hosting large scale projects, and those that require international deployment. For example, if you have a cloud system that will be used in multiple different geographies, we can deploy the software locally to where it will be used and move data internally to the cloud to manage security, performance, and cost.

…As a Service

Solution
Platform

Responsiv Solution as a Service delivers a custom solution to your exact requirements. The benefit is that we spread the cost of development over the service term, and you get a solution without worrying about the layers of software and hardware that may be required to deliver it.

A Solution can range from a single business process, to a fully specified enterprise automation or connectivity solution.

Delivering a solution quickly and efficiently reduces the cost of project management and development resources. Use solution as a service to deliver regulatory projects, small projects that demonstrate value, and larger departmental or enterprise undertakings.

Responsiv can deliver solutions as a service quickly and efficiently by controlling all the dependencies, including hosting, middleware, and skilled resources. We can avoid the lengthy negotiations with internal providers and multiple external suppliers. Our asset based consulting approach reduces delivery time and risk, and improves solution quality.

Responsiv Solution as a Service delivers a SolaaS quality of service built on a product that is configured and built to deliver your exact stated needs. We provide the hosting, supporting software, and configuration necessary to specifically solve your problem or deliver the required service, as well as the software and hardware necessary to run the solution.

Your solution may require any combination of API, Automation, Connectivity, or Rules. The modular design and flexible hosting allow Responsiv to respond to your needs quickly and efficiently.

Responsiv offer a number of pre-defined platforms that can be used to host your own automation, connectivity, rules, and custom solutions. The Platform as a Service (PaaS) approach is a great way to accelerate your own development.

Responsiv provide API, Automation, Connectivity, and Rules platforms as a service. Each one can be extended using Responsiv Unity modules to include combinations of the others. Start with Business Automation, add API management and rules; or perhaps begin the journey with a rules service and add API management. Each platform is deployed for your sole use. 

Each platform is deployed to the Responsiv Cloud infrastructure and can be accessed through any of the supported cloud connect protocols. Each platform is provided with a production and test/development environment.

The basic platform is configured with a standard capacity. You can add capacity at any time using additional modules or capacity units.
