The Risk Focus HTML5 Accelerator solution helps financial firms with investments in legacy .NET, C# and C++ user interfaces transition to dynamic HTML5 without re-engineering their entire software architecture. Our packaged HTML5 Accelerator solution includes a target technology stack, development patterns and delivery model to help clients kick start their HTML5 migration.

Key Features

The Risk Focus HTML5 Accelerator Solution integrates the following components:

Openfin HTML5 Runtime

  • Thick client functionality in HTML5 – messaging, popups, alerts, calculation
  • Browser Independence – does not rely on limited browser functionality
  • Native Client Experience – replicate old UI look and feel or develop brand-new UIs
  • Incremental Migration – no “big bang” redevelopment

Enterprise Test and Build Stack

  • Build Management
  • Dependency Management
  • MV* Frameworks
  • CSS Framework
  • Testing (Unit, E2E) Frameworks
  • Client-Server Communication

Clients receive a fully functional production-ready UI use case, Openfin integration, documentation and training. We provide a variety of support and maintenance options to ensure a successful transition to HTML5.

Key Benefits

  • Clear path to migrate extensive UI and business logic to HTML5
  • Retain native thick client functionality (pop ups, alerts, tiling, drag and drop, client messaging) that browsers cannot produce
  • User Interface capabilities the same as thick client, including multiple component interactions, object parent-child dependencies and communication between different windows and data objects
  • Complete browser independence -- no limitations due to aging browser versions
  • Technology Agnostic -- thick client and various applications run independently from the HTM5 UI, substantially mitigating risk of technology change
