SDK – Software Development Kit
The Cooper Software SDK empowers your in-house IT team to extend the functionality of your IFS solution. Whether you are looking to enable mobile apps, customise workflows, integrate with other solutions or bolt-on applications, our SDK gives you the power to configure your systems to meet the needs of your business seamlessly, safely and securely.
For over 10 years, we have developed a wide range of solutions for customers which are deployed on top of IFS. Through these projects, we have applied modern development techniques and best practice, whilst investing heavily in establishing a deep understanding of the IFS architecture and its supporting technology.
This has enabled us to create tools and and utilities to automate much of the development ‘heavy lifting’ needed to extend the capability of IFS. This is what we have packaged into the Cooper Software SDK.
Compatible with all versions of IFS the SDK re-uses the IFS security model, thus guaranteeing system integrity and security.
The Cooper Software SDK’s key strength lies in the development of mobile and add-on applications for IFS, helping you to deliver on your mobile strategy. Using the SDK you have the power to build your own, bespoke apps for IFS, without having to modify the core system in any way.
Using a simple application builder, the SDK guides you through the entire process. It includes a range of pre-developed mobile templates and automatically generates your code, enabling rapid and easy deployment of mobile apps on top of IFS. The SDK will automatically build applications for any version of IFS and for multiple target platforms including Android, iOS or Microsoft.NET™.
Wärtsilä were rolling out the SAP ERP solution across their business, moving away from their legacy ERP solution, IFS. However, there was an immediate requirement to retain a portion of the IFS solution for engineering design and document management capabilities at Wärtsilä’s Asker site in Norway. It was vital that the IFS solution was able to exchange data to and from the new SAP system.
Cooper Software’s SDK solution was utilised to effectively manage the transfer of data between both systems and ensure smooth integration and connectivity.
