Starcounter Report Summary

Project ID: 784399

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Starcounter (In-Memory Computing and Artificial Intelligence Platform for Building Next Generation Enterprise Software)

Reporting period: 2017-10-01 to 2018-09-30

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

Enterprise software market needs many more applications to support business digitalization, fulfil user expectations, and be competitive. This cannot be achieved with the current software production, delivery and maintenance model. The development bottleneck escalates for global companies and multinational EU corporates, which need to localize their software for a wide variety of cultures, languages, rules, and legislations.
Starcounter proposes a fundamentally new approach and technology for developing and deploying enterprise software. Starcounter combines an in-memory database and application server with a machine learning engine for app-to-app interoperation of unlimited scalability. It allows independently developed applications to work seamlessly together out-of-the-box. Integration can become deep, fast, synchronous and practically infinitely scalable allowing to develop sophisticated and complex systems. Adapting Starcounter in addition to scaling development of enterprise software and business digitalization enables multinational corporates to centralize their main software modules while being able to localize individual modules for individual countries and EU states.
The objective of this project is to grow globally through both development and dissemination activities. This requires to further enhance and scale up the Starcounter platform, so it meets needs of different customers and ready to cope with increase of customers and users.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

The on-going work is concentrated on development to enhance the Starcounter platform and on dissemination activities to on-board more customers. The development is performed according to the plan and closely working with customers, so the enhancement is in line with customer needs and the project objectives. The on-going development allowed us to improve efficiency of working with on-going customer projects. Thus, we are prepared for more customers projects, which are expected to come from the dissemination activities.
In addition to enhancing platform functionality the on-going work covers quality assurance and improvements on continuous integration infrastructure.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

The Starcounter platform allows to develop enterprise applications in a novel way, which combines independently developed components with less effort than the state of the art integration techniques. The platform is being tested on real customer projects and in production environment. Customers report that switching to the Starcounter platform solves operational pains, which were in place with the state of the art technology implementations.
