Future Enhacements

Oxcyon's development labs are always hard at work developing new modules, features and functions to improve Centralpoint. Many of these ideas come from our clients, which is why we call it our VOC, or Voice of Customer. Other ideas come from our long range study of big data, and what it means for everyone. Oxcyon has been a leader in enterprise content management and knowledge management for over 17 years, and we are constantly surprised at how much we are still learning. It is fair to say we learn more now than we ever had, and are proud to share our future development efforts with you from our labs.

Google Structured Content (Output)

Google is placing strict rules on clients to be properly indexed. First, most every website now requires an SSL or digital certificate. Now, the big push is 'Structured Content'. The previous 'Google Site Map; is being revisited in favor of Structured Content, allowing you output all sorts of information for Google (to more easily and readily) spider including such things as: Articles, Products, People, Locations, News, Events, and more. This requires a major consideration be made to ALL of Centralpoint modules, so that they will be able to output this 'version' of your site, directly to Google, allowing for improved indexing and spidering. Oxcyon has been working on this project since September of 2017, and expects to be completed in late April 2018

Conditional Alerts

Broadcasts currently allows for scheduled Email or Text based alerts to various audiences and/or roles. This allows you to distribute scheduled (dynamic) newsletters, and alerts to your members (clients, employees, others), and maintain as many email broadcast campaigns as you need (complete with click through reporting for each). One of the new 'Scheduled' features we will be exploring is to go beyond time based scheduling (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly), introducing a new Scheduled type, known as 'Conditional'. In this scenario, you will be able to Schedule your broadcast when (X<=>Y), meaning that these alerts will be triggered based on any conditions found within Centralpoint or within other systems altogether. (Example: Imagine scheduling an alert, when employees are approaching their anniversary date (from being hired). A report like this would alert you of which employees need to re-sign their employment contract (for an example).

Integration with OneDrive/Office365

This planned integration is to extend Centralpoint's ability to deposit files uploaded into cloud based file share systems. In this way, although the files are living in the cloud, Centralpoint can still provide full search, retrieval, and crosswalks (to other relevant records) within Centralpoint. The integration is planned to support multiple cloud services (which can be used simultaneously) within Centralpoint, and support more than just the two listed here. This would allow a Centralpoint administrator to determine any and all cloud services they use, and the ability to designate which modules are stored within each, and upon which trigger. (Example, a document (or any asset) may be created, edited or reviewed in Centralpoint, but upon final approval it may be sent to the cloud for storage).

MVC Root Extension

A new MvcRoot folder built using ASP.NET Core.  The master console would provide a Framework option when creating a new site: Web Forms or MVC.  When MVC was selected IIS would be set up to use a completely new Root folder, but the Client and Master consoles would work as they do now.  This require a completely new code base for the front end of the site and eventually all front end integrations and modules.  The initial phase of this project would include the development of the framework itself which primarily involves the Site Architecture Modules as well as the UI for Generic modules.  Phase 2 would involve rebuilding additional modules as needed.  Phase 3 would involve the development of an MVC based client console that renders as part of the root folder (like forms management) as opposed to using a separate web application. This will also include MVVM

AJAX/AngularJS Module Stylesheets

This project would begin by upgrading the Module Designer so that Generic modules could produce multiple outputs.  The Administrator creating the module would be able to choose between a standard (Web Form) UI or a newer AJAX (Angular like) UI.  Then we would build a UI for Generic Enhanced modules based on AJAX.  The module designer itself would contain HTML templates that are updated as the views change by passing updated JSON objects to the server.  This project would lead to a lot of CpScript updates to work with these new AJAX style modules, and possibly to the develop of other AJAX modules using the same framework.

UI Hub Map

This is planned as a JQuery mind map of the enterprise, including all scheduled data transfers (reflecting all data moving in and out of the enterprise). This mind map will also act as the primary interface in which to initiate new instances of data imports, scheduled tasks (outbound email alerts), and or web services (either consuming data from other systems, or showing other systems consuming information from Centralpoint). This UI interface will act as a live 'traffic management' map, and include any Syndicated data feeds being consumed by outside systems.

Web Services Designer

This tool is intended to work very much like Module Designer does today, but grant object oriented, design control over web services found in the Web API. In this way, the UI (User Interface) can leverage the re-usable objects within Centralpoint, but extend beyond traditional .net webpages. Like Module Designer, the Home, Results and Details view of any web service can be managed within the Centralpoint architecture.

ISO 45001 Compliance

Maintenance will be performed on Centralpoint to ensure compliance with ISO 45001, based upon anticipated changing standards (and certification guidelines of Oxcyon's hosting providers), anticipated to be finalized by March 2018. The ISO 45001 standard will utilize the same common structure, definitions and core text being used for the present revisions of ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, the environmental and quality management system standards, which are the rules governing the development of all ISO management standards.
