Artech is a Uruguayan company that has developed
since 1984 an exclusive state of the art technology in database, development
and maintenance of systems and knowledge management.
Artech founders have worked
as consultants in several projects of information systems with databases, in
particular in Brazil and Uruguay. Based on their
experience they found the limitations of generally accepted methods and tools
for the development and maintenance of computational systems. To overcome
those limitations, Artech completed key original works researching the areas
of relational databases, applications development, CASE tools and artificial
intelligence. The whole work, totaling several year-man hours, produced an
exclusive technology that has come to be the competitive advantage of Artech and the base of its product GeneXus.
Currently, Artech goals related to GeneXus are:
new versions to take full advantage of new technologies.
the high satisfaction of clients.
and help others to develop, complementary products like knowledge bases.
consulting and development services.
the marketing of knowledge bases.
the technology advantage based on commercial carefulness and corporate strength.
All other conflicting goals that could diffuse values and resources
are specifically excluded.
GeneXus is the generation tool used to build Bantotal and therefore Artech is a prime supplier of DL&A. Furthermore, both companies
have an agreement with a wide scope. Artech is a critical technology partner.
To develop and
grow in today's competitive business world DL&A has
to sustain an edge on available and emerging technologies as well the practical
use of them. That creates the need of an investment strategy toward those
two directions: the opportunities of new technologies and the needs and requirements
of the clients. For the one side, the technological agreement with Artech provides
DL&A the required investment in research and development on
new technologies. Such investment is done by Artech that provides
DL&A the tools and the acquired knowledge.
On the other side, DL&A invests
on research and development of new applications based on the technology that
Artech provides, and thus offering
Artech the test bank for fine tuning of the technology. GeneXus
focused on development of applications connected with Artech, also uses Bantotal as the central knowledge base for their financial institutions clients.
