Introduction to the Futurama Vision platform in relation to Futurama




Futurama Vision provides a framework to:

  • Hold data that can be used within Futurama
  • Manage Futurama installations within an organization
  • Analyze the use of Futurama applications
  • provide safe access to personal data for endcustomers

 In general, Futurama Vision is an extension to Futurama. It consists of:

1. Vision Database

Futurama itself can connect to external databases (whether they are SQL, Oracle or ODBC in general), but does not contain data itself. In Vision, a database is provided that stores:

  • location of all Futurama installations and Futurama applications within an organization
  • a structure to contain data of individuals (policies) and their relation to the organization

2. Vision Management Site

Together with the database, a web User Interface is provided that can be used by Administrators

3. Optional modules

See picture above. Depending on the Edition, several Vision modules can be implemented:

Futurama Accounts: provides functionality to allow for authentication and authorization of users to Futurama web applications. For example a customer portal.

Futurama Monitor: Allows storage of all Futurama Web sessions. This data can be transformed into useful information on user behavior in Futurama websites.

Futurama Server: Can be used to direct individual Futurama installations centrally when running batch jobs. 

Futurama Register: Is used exclusively for the Dutch pension market (not documented here).

To use Futurama Vision follow the next two steps:

  1. install the Futurama Vision Management Site and the Futurama Vision Database
  2. configure the Futurama Vision Management Site
