Rapture On-Demand

Over the past couple months at Incapture Technologies we have been working on a way to allow potential clients to experiment with a fully-fledged Rapture environment as seamlessly as possible. Our solution to this was actually using our own product, Rapture, to create a user dashboard & management application that would be used along with Docker & Tutum (soon to be Docker Cloud) to manage & launch trial environments as needed. Once an interested user is up and running with their own environment, we provide them with our “Getting Started Guide”. That web page contains the Rapture Platform documentation as well as Introductory tutorials available in 3 languages (Reflex, Java or Python). These are in place to help a user get acquainted with how to use the Rapture API, the Rapture Information Manager browser application, and the real-world impact of how Rapture could be a solution for them. The first tutorial application demonstrates how easy it is to build an application in your cho...

Data Lifecycle Manager for Regulatory Compliance

Published:
January 12, 2016

Compliance with regulatory mandates demands a fundamental re-think of how banks and asset managers approach data access, analysis, and governance. What is required? A flexible and open solution that promotes innovation while also providing operational controls. The Data Lifecycle Manager built on Rapture delivers on this ask.   Fallout from the financial crisis continues as risk managers and IT professionals rush to implement solutions that address regulatory mandates. Banks and asset management firms must satisfy high level principles (the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s Risk Data Aggregation and Risk Reporting Principles) and specific asks (Volcker Rule and KYC/AML). Data governance and operational transparency are consistent themes across these regulations, all driven by a motivation to bolster risk management capabilities. Manual workarounds and siloed systems that inhibit data sharing are rightly called out as areas of concern. A few changes on the margin to mono...

Building web applications on Rapture

In this next set of Rapture blogs I want to explore how we at Incapture build web applications on Rapture. You can use this same technique to build your own applications on Rapture as this framework is part of the general Rapture product. This is not the only way to do this - Rapture is a platform after all and there are many ways to use such a platform to create such an application. As a taster for what I'll be talking about I can show you a demonstration "front page" of our sandbox application: Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 1.49.22 PM Here we have a tileset of "applications" that we have installed into this environment, and the ability to launch them. Over the next couple of blog posts I'll explain behind the scenes how I used the framework to create these applications. We should first consider what our requirements and constraints are for such an application framework. Ideally I wanted to have a very simple deployment approach - it should be straightforward to "add" an application to an existing environmen...
