Empxtrack Architecture

Empxtrack follows a multi-tier design that allows significant scalability, fault tolerance, maintainability and capabilities to adapt to changing compliance environments. Like any 3 tier application, Empxtrack has a database (entity) layer, a business-logic and a presentation layer. The entity layer and the business logic layers are developed in java and the presentation layer is in JSP. In addition, Empxtrack has many innovations to allow customizations, fast data access, integration with ERPs, analytics and reporting, memory management and data updates.

CalcEngine Language
To allow significant customization options and multi-geography customizations, Empxtrack has a language of its own called CalcEngine. The implementations of CalcEngine code exists on the database and hence can change for each tenant allowing significant customizations and no impact on existing code for other customers. CalcEngine is a full-blown language with strong data-typing and all the elements required in a full language (variable definition, iterators, arrays, data conversions, logic, functions and modules, memory management, stack) and also provides many primitives for accessing java beans, java method invocations, web programming (session management, JSON conversions, request and response handling), database querying and updates

Cache layer
Most masters and other objects that change less frequently are stored on cache and this helps reduce database queries and helps in a very rapid response. Since the deployment is distributed, updates of masters in one server are automatically communicated to other servers.

Encryption
All fields that uniquely identify an employee are encrypted (such as name, date of birth, address, dependents).

All communication between Empxtrack servers and browsers are on 128 bit or higher encryption. All communication between the Empxtrack servers (such as tomcats and database) is secure

Workflow and schedulers
Multiple workflows are available in Empxtrack that allow some of the most complex scenario management. The authorizations for different actions, validations, messaging, permissions are all controlled through XML and can be individually configured for customers (if required).

Integration
A secure layer exists for providing access to various parts of Empxtrack data to HR Managers through an API access mechanism. Various API methods are available that allow you to move data securely to your server or update Empxtrack. Access is available by generation of API key for HR Managers and all updates are based on authorizations available to the HR Manager. More details on the API are available at http://help.empxtrack.com/empxtrack-api/

In addition, Empxtrack provides SSO integration to allow seamless login for your employees without remembering another username/password.

All data in Empxtrack can be downloaded/uploaded from Excel sheets (CSV sheets)

Multi-language support
All string data (labels) in Empxtrack are stored in the database. This allows better memory optimization and adaptations (based on localization requirements) for different geographies.

Provisions exist to convert this data to as many as 9 different languages. We are currently working on providing the product in Spanish and French and additional languages will be added based on our expansion plans and our customer requirements.
