THE RIGHT SOFTWARE AND SUPPORT TEAM FOR ENTERPRISE-SCALE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
The Grails® framework and core development team deliver the tools and support an enterprise company needs to overhaul its technology stack and enhance operations across the board.
A leader in the global life reinsurance industry set out to upgrade its systems to support:
- Increased demands for speed-to-market

The company identified the Grails framework as the ideal toolkit for the project. Systems were successfully upgraded using the Grails framework as the driver for their:
- Internal and external web services

- Traditional web 1.0 applications
THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY
Outstanding software engineering support and strong documentation, bolstered by a vibrant user community, make the Grails framework a terrific choice for any organization looking to quickly bring industrial-strength, scalable, and integrated solutions to market.
Because the Grails framework represents a combination of convention over configuration and sensible defaults, it has been described as “Java on steroids.”
Popular among shops that have invested in Java or JVM-based technologies, the Grails framework:
- Facilitates rapid application development
- Is welcomed by development teams, including those currently using Spring and Hibernate, due to its ability to accelerate developer productivity by 50-70%
- Is applauded by businesses as a tailored feature set, resulting in streamlined learning, development efficiency, and support responsiveness
- Supports exponential scaling
- Deploys well within existing, complex environments
- Provides necessary flexibility to develop plug-ins and to quickly resolve issues
Grails is not just for rapid prototyping; our situation is proof that Grails is built for enterprise-scale application development.
Development with Grails is significantly faster than with Java, or anything else we had worked with or explored.
OCI consultants deliver a level of consistency that we haven’t seen. And that consistency means reduced risk to our projects.
