Research and Development

Research Projects

Research and development is at the core of xAssets. For the last 18 years xAssets has been a center of technical excellence and a knowledge leader in all aspects of asset management and the technologies we use to develop software, store data, integrate and discover network assets.

We are typically executing around 15-20 lab based experimental projects at any one time to drive forward innovation and give us a competitive edge in future product launches.

Our innovations and current lab projects include:

  • Superfast zero impact agentless asset discovery technologies for SNMP, Windows, Mac, UX, Radios and Phones
  • Scaling out very large database projects using low cost and open source database engines
  • Grid computing with semi redundant hardware and supermassive parallel processing for batch work
  • Applications defined entirely in the configuration layer while maintaining upgradeability
  • Interpreters to allow common and popular programming languages to run in a browser client with sequential callback processing
  • Technologies to rapidly integrate and federate data from many disparate sources with cohesive key algorithms and parallelism
  • Agentless software usage monitoring technologies
  • Frameworks to process cleansing, recognition and deduplication during the integration process
  • Drilldownable chart tooling and libraries built over D3
  • Normalisation of very large database structures into a connective database framework
  • Single page applications and high performance client development avoiding TP frameworks
  • We cut our own high performance builds of PostgreSQL with considerable performance gains

Most of the above technologies are either shipped in our products or due to be launched this year. Some of them are open sourced on Github but xAssets posts these projects anonymously.

Development Projects

Our release schedule for 2018 is based around delivering Version 7.2 to our existing customers and launching version 7.2 as a market disrupting asset management system which will be freely available with a limited license to all corporations meeting specific criteria. This is our first major release since 2007 and encapsulates a huge amount of research and development effort.

The key benefits of this years releases are:

  • Fast, slick and easy to use user interface
  • Using the latest web tech including single page applications
  • Massive performance and scalability
  • Support for all browsers including mobile devices
  • Very powerful, flexible and fast configuration toolset
  • Visual Basic style scripting language behind the web pages
  • Upgrade path for version 6 customers
  • Military grade security - our products now carry US air force certification
  • Designed for use on very large networks with high asset volumes

xAssets continues to focus on research and development to drive forward our technologies to bring market disrupting products and new technology frameworks to drive competitive advantage and benefits for end customers.
