Apex Perseus™



Slay the Incidental Complexity at the Heart of Software

Apex Perseus™ is a powerful package management and interactive build tool designed with developers of complex distributed, enterprise and decentralized software applications in mind.

Perseus provides a number of useful entry points for code generation, package management for the supported script languages of both runtimes, a specialized “Data Explorer REPL” that allows you to experiment iteratively with turning unstructured data into structured data suitable for use in ForeverDB, and a command line SPARQL query engine—among other powerful features.

Like other embeddable, extensible components of Olympos, Perseus is included in Apex Unify! as well as Apex DomainMaster, so if you are using either, you can find it both as a command line application, and its features embedded in your favorite language in Athena or Muse in the form of several APIs and SDKs.

Perseus can be highly customized to meet the needs of diverse IT teams across your organization. For example, Administrators can extend it as a kind of “power” shell for routine and periodic tasks. DevOps engineers can build tasks and commands into it tailored to your organization’s development practices for continuous delivery. Developers can automate tedious integration tasks like parsing existing code and generating new code or working with custom tools not found outside your organization.

The sky is literally the limit. Perseus can build Athena/Muse and Delphi projects out of the box, and is extensible in Athena/Muse languages and native Delphi and C++ to become your tool of first resort to tackle any complexity unique to your environment.

Features

  • Apex MetaGrep—like traditional Unix ‘grep’ but generalized to any tree structure (file system, registry, environment variables, even NoSQL databases).
  • Apex MetaTree™, a unique tree-like data structure for in-memory manipulation of large data documents. All supported data exchange formats in Perseus are translatable to/from MetaTree and available to all Apex runtime engines.
  • Apex MetaPath™, a powerful query engine for data in any format that can be converted to/from Apex MetaTree™. Like XPath, but not limited to XML.
  • A unique “data explorer”-style REPL suitable for turning CSV data into RDF/linked data.
  • A from-scratch implementation of the popular Mustache templating engine; think XSLT, but without the tight coupling to XML. With full MetaTree™ compatibility, so you can turn any data into… well, anything.
  • Perseus comes with its own built-in, native SPARQL query engine.
  • Extensible, Mustache-based template system for custom generation of artifacts from data.
  • Create new Athena/Muse projects, optionally including native extensions, and rapidly create linked-data or traditional micro-services on our Helios micro-server framework.

Benefits

  • Stay focused on your problem domain, not on orthogonal concerns.
  • Use the Perseus command line utility to streamline important steps in the process of creating data-centric microservices and data adapters for Apex Synchronicity™.
  • Faster time to market with amazing low-level frameworks and features that until now have not been easily available in commodity form, baked right into your favorite scripting language.
  • Turn Perseus into precisely what your development teams need to tackle the hardest problems in your domain.

The Apex Advantage

Apex Olympos™

Apex OlymposTM – our platform for rapid, agile development in a microservices-oriented world – brings your data systems and legacy applications into the 21st century by modernizing your architecture to current enterprise standards.

  • Transform client-server systems into n-tier distributed systems with maximum re-use of existing code and business logic quickly with proven tools, techniques and methods for legacy application modernization.
  • Lay the correct foundation for more advanced data sharing and collaboration with Olympos, then layer Apex DomainMaster or Apex Unify! on top for an approach to interoperability that is both robust and reliable.

Apex DomainMaster™

Apex DomainMaster™ brings the power of linked data and blockchain together on the desktop with a compelling new commercial database management system designed for the 21st century. With DomainMaster, it’s never been easier to collaborate or keep your disparate “data silos” in sync. Essentially “Unify! in a box,” Apex DomainMaster brings unparalleled productivity to the development of “semantic web” applications to the masses, even leveraging existing investments in traditional desktop SQL databases like MS Access.

  • Streamlined, iterative and exploratory development of domain concepts with intelligent data import/export capabilities well beyond traditional ETL approaches.
  • Create a single source of truth and align your system of record against it when new information is added to the system—even if the origin of the new information was externally generated!
  • Know that your data is always secure, always local, and impossible to corrupt or otherwise leak information.
  • Includes Apex Olympos.

Ready to go “Enterprise”?

Apex Unify!™ Platform

Apex Unify!™ is a full-stack distributed platform for semantic interoperability that is designed to overcome traditional technical and political barriers to data sharing in highly regulated, services-based industries like healthcare and finance. It can be used by large government and commercial enterprises to share patient or client data or by companies growing by acquisition to quickly bring disparate internal IT systems into corporate alignment.

  • Apex BlockSync™ with Apex ForeverDB™ provides secure, decentralized sharing of semantically rich, arbitrarily complex data across organizational and even domain boundaries.
  • Apex Synchronicity™ provides unparalleled processing power for semantic alignment of disparate IT systems.
  • Over time, existing systems can be enhanced, deprecated or replaced without fear of information loss, ever.
  • Includes Apex Olympos.

Unify! and DomainMaster both use or embed our game-changing technologies:


Apex ForeverDB™


Apex ForeverDB™ brings several innovations to the problem of global information management. It supports three high-level categories of data: “Eternal” storage (hence the name ForeverDB), “Long-term” storage, and “Short-term” storage. It also provides a granular model of truth over time in a world of multiple conflicting sources of truth and a novel concept of identity mapping that is uniquely suited to the problem of reconciling disparate data both internally and externally to the organization. With ForeverDB™, information loss is simply never a problem. 

Apex BlockSync™


Apex BlockSync™ is a blockchain-powered, optionally distributed transactor of novelty in a given domain designed to make sharing semantically rich information across systems and organizational boundaries part of the architectural “woodwork,” not yet another API-driven exchange of information. BlockSync tackles the complexity of data interoperability while preserving organizational autonomy with respect to critical business logic and choice of back-end technology stack. No participant is forced to use the same database software, just the same source of truth.

Apex Synchronicity™


Apex Synchronicity™ is the technology by which information held in “Long-term” and “Short-term” storage in ForeverDB is synchronized across multiple internal systems of record. It provides internal data federation as well as a coherent methodology for identifying discrepancies across local systems and updating them as these discrepancies are resolved. With Synchronicity’s lightweight design, no system of record is conscious of participating in federation at all. Legacy systems of record can be replaced without fear of losing information, ever. 

Apex Team Collaborate™


Apex Team Collaborate™ simplifies data reconciliation and truth propagation by empowering your teams to vet new information as it enters the system, especially when errors or discrepancies are detected, forcing human intervention and workflow. With Team Collaborate, every reconciliation session is an opportunity to improve both efficiency and usability, providing analytics that will ensure continual process improvement—not to mention happier users—over time. Team Collaborate’s front-end, Apex DocuMentor™, ensures critical, timely documentation of each resolution.
