What is HP Autonomy Interwoven TeamSite?

HP Autonomy Interwoven TeamSite is an ECM (Enterprise Content Management System) that was developed originally by a vendor called Interwoven. Interwoven is a company that was started in 1993 with its head office in the USA and is now providing content management solutions to business clients globally. Interwoven was acquired by Autonomy and further Autonomy was acquired by HP recently in 2012.

Any ECM and WCM should have the ability to manage, store, find, share, change, track, test, move and back up a large number of the organization’s assets, such as web pages, document files, database, program source codes, scripts.

That’s what HP Autonomy Interwoven TeamSite does with the ability to cover the content development life cycle. The primary development cycle includes:

Assign: a new task involving content creation and assigning that task to a person.

  1. Edit: Content is edited and tested by a content contributor.
  2. Review: Content is reviewed by a reviewer with possible rejection and recycle the process.
  3.  Deploy: Content that is approved by the reviewer is then transferred to the production site.

Essence has been serving clients across the world to implement this robust and user-friendly solution using HP Autonomy Interwoven TeamSite.


Why ECM Products and Content management systems?

Ecm is not a new concept. It has been around for a while now. For as long as there have been large companies, there has been ECM.

With time we have seen the ECM products evolving from a basic system to advanced complex systems. It just got infinitely more complicated (or easier, depending on your outlook) with the rise of digital information.

According to Prescient Digital Media, ECM is “the technology used to capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver content and documents related to organizational processes. ECM tools and strategies allow the management of an organization’s unstructured information, wherever that information exists.”

With time new products have been introduced to the market and advanced features added to the older products. With increasing competition, the feature list of the ECM products has been continuously growing. Some of the advanced features added to ECM products are Workflow management, Content Targeting, Advanced Caching techniques, etc.

A list of reasons why organizations are investing in ECM is:

  • Content Sharing
  • Compliance
  • Improved Search
  • Version Control
  • Cost-effective Automation

But while the reasons are many for why organizations should invest in ECM, the stumbling block has been to show what the real return on investment (ROI) is from ECM. Everyone agrees that ECM is good, but putting your finger on exactly the order of magnitude of savings, benefits, and choosing from the multiple products available in the market is still hard.

Web Development

What is Laravel framework?

LARAVEL FRAMEWORK is the world’s most popular PHP framework. The benefits of Laravel are tremendous. Laravel framework uses the MVC (Model View Controller) framework in web development. Laravel is a new generation of web frameworks that makes it easier for you to develop your application. Laravel provides lots of powerful tools, such as a powerful and expressive ORM (Object Relational Mapping is a tool that helps you make query and manipulate data from a database using an object paradigm). 

Template engine (Blade), a data validation system, a cool router, component to cache everything you want.

Features of Laravel Framework :

• Routing system

• Unit-Testing

• View Composers

• Application Logic

• Automatic Pagination

As discussed above, the Laravel framework uses MVC architecture which organise different parts of code into models, views, and controllers.

• routes.php handles all the routes.

• We redirect requests to the appropriate controller from routes.php

• Then controller talks to the database either through model (Object Relational Mapping) or query builder.

• The controller will return the required data object to view and is responsible for implementing all the business logic.

• The view will return the final response to the user by fetching an appropriate template and replaces all placeholders with data received from the controller.


Reasons why you should pick Laravel :


• Built-in Authentication

• Easy migration from CI

• Filters

• Eloquent ORM

• Unit-Testing

• HTTPS Support

• Powerful Controller Routing

• Events

Powerful Tools in laravel :

  1. Migration: Migrations allow you to track changes to how your database is set up, step by step and update or rollback those changes or we can say that migration helps to modify the DB schema & up to date the current schema.


  1. Seeding: Seeding is meant for the testing environment. Seeding helps you to fill your DB with dummy data with a simple command.

Why Choose Hybrid Mobile Apps?

One of the very common questions I have heard recently is “Will hybrid mobile app will be good for my idea?”
Comparing hybrid mobile apps with native is the first thing we do in order to find answer to the above question. Let’s try and find out an answer.

Hybrid Mobile Apps

Hybrid apps are are web views wrapped in a native wrapper. This means that the web application running on device with an additional capability to access device features like camera, GPS, Location services etc. Hybrid apps are like any other mobile apps. They can be installed on your device. You can find them in app stores. A well-written hybrid app shouldn’t look or behave any differently than a native app.

Here are some characteristics of the hybrid mobile app:

— Developed using HTML, Javascript and CSS
— Write once, run everywhere
— Save time and money
— Faster development cycle
— Easy resource availability

Some of the common hybrid platforms available

— Phonegap
— Ionic Framework
— NativeScript
— React native
— Onsen UI
— Jquery Mobile


Hybrid app platforms have come a long way in recent times. They have been a good substitute for the individual native app developments where you develop and maintain a single code base. Most of the SaaS service have a clear lean towards hybrid platforms for their MVP and even for their finished customer facing product.

We at Essence Software Solutions have expertise in designing and developing hybrid mobile apps with native comparable performance.
