The days of a company’s workforce coming together at one location at the same time are long gone. In many industries virtual teams are now the norm, making a solid collaboration strategy more important than ever.

That’s where ProWorkflow comes in. Developed by ProActive Software, ProWorkflow gives thousands of users worldwide access to tools and project details so they can manage their tasks, time, and contacts from desktops and mobile devices. The platform is built on Adobe ColdFusion, which gives ProActive the flexibility to adapt in time with customers’ rapidly changing demands.

“Product iteration was fast using Adobe ColdFusion,” says Vishal Nath, CIO of ProActive Software. “As our customer base grew and our product matured, we had to create application program interfaces (APIs) for customers so they could create apps and reports with their own data. We did that quickly with ColdFusion.”

Adobe has been a trusted ProActive partner for over 14 years and is playing a key role in ProActive Software’s mobile strategy. The new ProWorkflow Mobile service extends the solution to customers’ smartphones and tablets. The mobile app has a front-end framework that talks to the company’s API, which was developed in Adobe ColdFusion.

The next step for ProActive Software is experimenting with apps in Adobe Creative Cloud, bringing development and design closer together. The new Adobe Stock will help the team improve design elements, while Adobe Typekit will provide typographic inspiration.   

“After 14 years, it’s difficult to fully quantify the value we’ve realized from Adobe,” Nath says. “However, we know how other developers and development companies operate and compared to them we know we’re saving development time and costs with ColdFusion. We’re incredibly efficient by comparison.”

Many a time, ColdFusion application code is deployed on a network path when your ColdFusion deployments are of large-scale and mandated to use network paths.

After setting up the server for the first time, if there is any performance hit, as the first thing you would want to cross-check few things. One of the things to determine is if there is any network latency.

Though you would have got same network within your organization same as earlier, your OS version also would have changed.

Follow the steps below to see if the performance hit is due to network latency-

Inspirus develops software applications that help customers inspire their workers through effective employee recognition and rewards programs. For more than two decades, Inspirus has developed its solutions on the Adobe ColdFusion platform using rapid prototyping and agile software development methods. 

“ColdFusion and agile development are a natural fit, giving us the flexibility to change direction with ease and mock up a new solution in an acceptable timeframe,” says Steve Black, Manager of Development at Inspirus. “Rapid application development has resulted in a flexible platform that supports our client-centric business model for branding client solutions in a cost-effective, scalable way.”

The Texas-based company modifies its existing code base to show customers prototypes and iterations rapidly. The speed with which Inspirus responds to customers’ needs has resulted in a pattern of repeat business. Adobe ColdFusion also enables rapid conversions of legacy systems. For example, Inspirus saved 37 days of production time, which helped get the product to market much faster than originally anticipated. http://adobe.ly/1LohV7X


You might want to set up ColdFusion in a distributed environment where ColdFusion is running on one machine and Web server is running on a different machine.

Following are the set of steps that have to be performed to achieve this (less error-prone):

This applies to both ColdFusion 10 and ColdFusion 11.

1) Have ColdFusion server installed in a machine.

2) Next thing is to download and install VC Runtime.

             - The version of VC Runtime that you have to install depends on the version of ColdFusion.

                Say, ColdFusion 11 needs VC Runtime 2012

                 (32-bit VC Runtime for 32-bit Web server and 64-bit VC Runtime for 64-bit Web server.

                  If you are not sure, you can install both)

                 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=30679)

                and ColdFusion 10 needs VC Runtime 2010

 

3) Copy the following contents from the machine where ColdFusion is running to the machine where Web server is running at the same location.

 C:\ColdFusion11\jre

 C:\ColdFusion11\runtime\lib\wsconfig.jar

 C:\ColdFusion11\runtime\conf\server.xml

C:\ColdFusion11\config\instances.xml

C:\ColdFusion11\config\cluster.xml

 

4) Open a Command prompt and run wsconfig tool

   C:\ColdFusion11>jre\bin\java -jar cfusion\runtime\lib\wsconfig.jar

    It will open a configuration window where you have to provide AppServer Host as the ColdFusion Server IP.

    Configure the connector.

Distributed environment is ready for use. Send requests to the Web server's URL with cfm files under web server root and same files under ColdFusion's Web root.

Web server would redirect these to ColdFusion, which is on some other machine.

 

 

Since 2004, Promisan has built its management consulting and systems business by creating tools that help clients optimize how they use information. Promisan’s flagship enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Prosis, surpasses rival solutions because it has been built using the stable, mature, and powerful Adobe ColdFusion platform. ColdFusion gives Promisan the flexibility to meet changing customer requirements and to integrate with a variety of IT infrastructures

“Adobe ColdFusion is a fantastic application server that outperforms others at a significantly lower cost of ownership. Because it’s based on a J2EE-compliant Java platform, it readily supports Linux, Solaris, Mac, and Windows operating systems. The platform integrates seamlessly into Java and C++ projects—providing outstanding flexibility in the demanding, challenging ERP arena,” says Jorge Armin Mazariegos, co-founder and operations manager at Promisan.

Prosis has helped one global company cut staffing report times from three days to one minute and a recruiting agency to gain real-time insight into job recruiting status. The ERP system has also helped a crude oil distributor cut the time required to refill storage tanks by 67%.

Adobe ColdFusion has allowed Promisan to eliminate nearly all third-party tools for solution development. With ColdFusion, Promisan developers have achieved a sustainable business model for Prosis that can support sites with anywhere from 5 to 5,000 users accessing more than 1,500 normalized database tables.  http://adobe.ly/1BWdfnE
