IntelliGuard® Intelligent Inventory Solutions: IT Architecture

When it comes to IT architecture, we know one size does not fit all.

Intelliguard Enterprise Solutions Architecture

Whether supporting a single client site, or thousands of connected sites across the globe, our technical architecture is designed with flexibility, security and maximum uptime in mind. 

IntelliGuard® Intelligent Inventory Solutions are developed exclusively on time-tested development platforms. We are committed to proven development platforms, knowing that although Open Source platforms may be more economical, the risk from a security and scalability perspective is an unacceptable tradeoff, particularly in the healthcare market we serve.

Our flexible technology architecture choices support a variety of unique client configurations – from single client sites to multi-site, Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) and distributed vendor managed inventory enterprises. Whether client server or cloud server based, all IntelliGuard® RFID applications are designed with localized data cache at each node to eliminate any single point of failure.

Local Server, Cloud Server and IT Workstation options offer each IT department a solution to meet their unique preferences

Client Server: IntelliGuard® Intelligent Inventory Solutions can be run completely within the confines of client’s physical and logical infrastructure allowing IT to control and keep all data within the boundaries of their own Intranet.  Localized data cache at each node eliminates any single point of failure.

Cloud Server: Alternatively, our solutions can be hosted within our managed Microsoft Windows Azure cloud instance, where data and server management are maintained by us. IntelliGuard® Intelligent Inventory Solutions cloud instance is multi-tenant but can also be set up as a private instance with full joint administration rights.  Localized data cache at each node eliminates any single point of failure.
