We "think" micro-services

Which services are provided?

centros.one (c5s) is a Technology Framework that comprises an integrated set of tools and notational standards to build, deploy and operate AI-centric Software Systems in a fast and efficient but trusted and reliable manner, all the way up from 0 to 100% enterprise-grade robustness.

Cutting edge INFRASTRUCTURE

THE c5s SHIPYARD ENVIRONMENT

BOTTOM LAYER

holds an Infrastructure-as-Code-Style definition for the creation of the c5s Foundation Services and the Housekeeping Services, both of which together form the „Operating System“ within the Production environment,

TOP LAYER

consists of several tools / toolchains (please refer to the Documentation section for details) that sequentially turn Custom Code into c5s-compatible Business Services, and deploy them into the Production environment.

centros Benefits

The same way that the Operating System on your laptop allows you to easily install and run normal Desktop Software without needing to know (and painfully manage) all the technical complexities that are sitting behind, c5s does the same for distributed, state-of-the-art AI-centric Business Software Systems.

Reduced Time-to-Market

End-to-end automation enables minimal time-to-market, even in deploy-as-often-as-you-want scenarios

Efficiency & Effectiveness

Maximum commercial efficiency and technological effectiveness, throughout the entire application lifecycle

Collaboration & REUSE

Enabling collaboration (employee level), and interoperability & reusability (services level).

Revision resistance & transparency

Increase legal certainty & delegation of liability when using AI in commercial applications.
