Aareon Smart World

The digital heart

The number of software solutions needed to stay on top of property-industry processes in our digitalised world is increasing steadily. To be able to offer companies in the industry reliable applications in a prompt, flexible and highly integrative manner, a digital platform is essential.

Current and future requirements

If you want to provide property companies with future-proof, digital applications, it is not enough to string together separately developed solutions. What you need is a platform that offers a sound technical basis as well as high availability and includes a wide range of tested components for the rapid development of new solutions. Furthermore, it should be possible to scale services in line with current needs so as to provide housing companies with a reliable environment even in peak periods.

This approach of an expandable and scalable infrastructure is at the heart of Aareon Smart World. We focus equally on cost efficiency, process optimisation and a lack of barriers between individual solutions – from the very first step of development all the way to delivery, implementation and operation. In addition, we integrate established and proven applications, such as ERP solutions, and incorporate the experience we have gained from their use in the development and implementation of new applications.

Prompt provision of new services

Thanks to smart automation tools, developers can provide new services quickly and reliably. The use of a service generator makes it possible to cleverly interlink functionalities – including existing ones – in new ways and to test them right away. If the component is stable and secure, the automation environment makes it available – via the cloud – for further use by the digital platform. This approach enables a platform-wide integration of new and existing services based on universally applicable principles with a view to user interface, quality, connectivity and security.

The services that are developed can either be core services – that is, digital services which fulfil fundamental functions within a solution, such as the authentication of users – or specific business services, such as the integration of tradespeople, damage reports or invoicing services. The keyword here is “microservices”: In the past, comprehensive software solutions were often used as a whole, offering very little flexibility, whereas nowadays companies prefer a combination of small, independent processes and partial solutions which communicate with each other via a programming interface to transport the data they process together from one service to another.

Just like the provision of these services, the communication between them takes place via the cloud – the digital platform is therefore omnipresent.

Reliability and speed through dynamic scaling

If a newly developed service has been integrated and there are peak loads during use – for example because of an increased number of tenant enquiries via a CRM system following the annual statement of running costs or because an invoicing service is being used more frequently than usual – the platform’s continuous monitoring process provides dynamic scaling. Services that are needed more than usual due to an increase in system queries are replicated and the replicas made available. When the number of queries declines, the duplicated service is removed again.

The generated data is not lost, however, since it is saved either in the platform’s own databases or in an external database without being linked to a particular service. The dynamic, needs-based scaling principle of the digital platform provides for reliability, speed and security. And it is also cost-efficient thanks to the modular approach of only using the service resources that are actually needed.

Mobile services and the Internet of Things

To account for the changed usage habits in a digitalised world, our digital platform naturally allows the integration and provision of mobile services as well as a connection to the Internet of Things, i.e. to digitally networked systems and sensors.

Economic benefits

The advantages that companies in the property industry enjoy if they use the digital platform are obvious: The platform’s integrated, modular approach improves the flexibility of the property-industry solutions that are based on it and improves their performance.

Due to the automated development of services, the quality of new services is assured and the development process accelerated. As a result, the time-to-market is reduced considerably, allowing companies to use technological developments and new services much more quickly than before.

The digital platform thus provides tangible economic benefits: Time-consuming, company-wide updates of core solutions are a thing of the past; today, new versions of individual components can be provided in a timely fashion.

Companies that want to use modern IT architectures and solutions and remain flexible in the long term without sacrificing reliability will find the right approach here.

Aareon Smart Platform

In addition to the Aareon Smart World, the Aareon Smart Platform is also available to Aareon customers and partners – as well as start-up companies. Here they can design and develop their own IT solutions for housing and real estate management with the help of a wide range of web services and integrate them in the company’s Aareon Smart World Ecosystem. Potential solutions would include

With the implementation of the Aareon Smart Platform Aareon has taken the first steps to provide an open Aareon Smart Platform ecosystem, where the company’s customers and partners can join its Aareon Smart World portfolio. Aareon Smart World itself offers a comprehensive and holistic digital portfolio that enables collaboration between all parties involved.
