apifocal

We build robust and highly secure solutions that you can trust.
… and we do that at scale. Our services are highly adaptive and built to sustain change.

apifocal is a professional services company with a core focus on open source technology. Our consultants are developers or contributors to quite a few open source projects at the Apache Software Foundation, but not only. Our consultants bring you not only in-depth knowledge of how the technologies you depend on actually work, but deployed and fine tuned them in many production environments.

We pride ourselves with implementing solutions that are maintainable and adaptable to change and developed

Continuous Delivery practices and tools that automate or speed up quality assurance and deployment into production.

Best infrastructure for your business performance

… and ours too! apifocal operates a number of services in the cloud for infrastructure, healthcare and financial applications. Because governance and security are important to us, we built the SilkMQ messaging fabric. SilkMQ can be deployed as an on-premise appliance, in the cloud or mixed. Our SilkMQ service already operates in multiple datacenters on two continents.

Operations at scale requires constant monitoring and propagation of changes from development through QA all the way to production. It needs to be timely and trusted. We strongly believe that code that is not in operating in production is not an asset, but a liability, similar to ship being at the docks instead of carrying goods across the oceans. Using a cattle vs pets approach, our BlueHeeler Continuous Delivery service reduces the time to production down to minutes.

Building a Messaging Fabric

SilkMQ is a secure, scalable message fabric for the private, public or hybrid cloud. Operating many services at scale requires a good messaging infrastructure. In addition to synchronous messaging based on the ubiquitous REST style, we saw a dire need for asynchronous messaging infrastructures.

We built SilkMQ as a highly available and secure, scalable messaging fabric. Based on Apache ActiveMQ, the leading open source JMS broker, SilkMQ adds a number of additional plugins and services for added security and additional features like multi-tenancy and cluster management.

SilkMQ is built to scale out, so that you could use the same messaging infrastructure for all your messaging applications without the risk of interference. The SilkMQ dashboards provide insight into your applications’ traffic.

Best of all, it works with your existing applications with zero changes. A simple change of your connection URL to point to SilkMQ… and voila!

apifocal's Core Made Waves at HIMSS18

apifocal's groundbreaking open source messaging fabric made a significant impact at the recent HIMSS18 conference in Las Vegas. Fluidity Health, one of the most innovative companies in the area of interoperability and patient-centered care presented their platform at HIMSS for the first time in Las Vegas.  Their care coordination application, which is platform agnostic, demonstrated the ability to push and pull data between VistA, Cerner, Allscripts and an additional sample EHR instance.

Their application, CareHub, brings together, in a HIPAA compliant way, a patient’s “circle of care”, doctors, nurses, caregivers, and family members, placing the patient squarely in the middle. The result is better care coordination and a high degree of satisfaction by users, which leads to better care delivery outcomes. CareHub, which leverages apifocal's messaging fabric, was demonstrated at the Healthcare Services Platform Consortium (HSPC) kiosk at the Department of Veteran’s Affairs booth.
