For the development of high quality, robust web and mobile apps, CCA has been using the functional programming language ReasonML since early 2018. ReasonML, also called “Reason” for short, was developed at Facebook for the Messenger web app where it drastically reduced the error rate.
CCA contributes to open source projects in the Reason ecosystem and has been the initiator of the new Reason bindings for React Native.
In his talk “A Mission-Critical ReasonML App for Railway Safety” at ReasonConf 2019, Christoph Knittel presented a web application for the railway sector that CCA developed in Reason:
3 million square meters. 3 freight ports. Direct connection to rail, road and ship traffic. Direct connection to the refinery Schwechat. 1000 cargo ships per year – HAFEN WIEN represents a unique logistics hub in the Vienna area.
Of course, operating such an infrastructure requires a corresponding incident management. All possible incident categories, ranging from floods to accidents, must be dealt with in a timely, coordinated and documented manner.
Since the beginning of the year, HAFEN WIEN has been relying on Unite Alert, a distributed incident management system from Control Center Apps GmbH. The core idea of the system is to allow all important activities like reporting incidents, alerting responsible personnel, coordinating the operation, communication, multimedia documentation and recording to be done via a simple mobile app. This enables the management of an incident from virtually anywhere and is not limited to an operation center.
“Whether it’s a flood or an industrial accident: every type of incident requires coordination by appropriate specialists. It was important to HAFEN WIEN to choose a system that would allow the relevant specialist to coordinate the incident from his current location.” Harald Lutz Head of IT Systems Engineering
After a short conceptual phase, Unite Alert was deployed as Software as a Service (SaaS) within just three months and was put into production after a short trial period at the beginning of the year.
