yuuvis® Momentum for Developers

Build outstanding applications with a high-performance backend

Do you know these challenges?

Confusing software landscape

Legacy systems have outgrown their capabilities and lack consistent interfaces for integration.

Limited scalability

You are concerned about your archiving solution not scaling to your amount of documents.

On-premises vs. cloud

You’re not sure if you should keep your data secure on your own hardware or if you might want to switch to the cloud later.

Limited performance

To build your web applications, you’ll need a platform with a high-performance backend.

Here’s how yuuvis® Momentum can help

A tool for developing tailored content and information management solutions faster

  • Solutions built with yuuvis® Momentum are highly scalable, can run in the cloud or on-premises, and exhibit outstanding performance.
  • yuuvis® Momentum allows you to tap into existing user management and is easily incorporated into an existing system environment through its REST API.
  • Webhooks, AMQP Hooks, and interceptors make it simple to extend functionality.
  • It provides a full audit trail, performant search features in an SQL-like manner, and rights management.
  • It supports asynchronous document processing via tagging, evolving document via the schema flow, and handling of compound documents.
  • And all of this while supporting multitenancy, with administration on both the global system and the tenant level.

Compound documents

You can store multiple content files in a single binary stream, with offsets defined by individual metadata. This can be extremely useful when processing stream-based content, such as audio, video, or large PDF archives.

You can, for example, import a single large video stream into the system, mark time offsets with metadata (possibly using AI), and use those to access video stream excerpts as separate and self-contained objects. Furthermore, if all content files share the same header, which is persisted only once at the start of the stream rather than with each individual file, storage space is saved.

Server-side customizing with interceptors

You can add alternative processing steps to certain API calls based on document metadata or the role of the authenticated user. The interceptor will interrupt a document’s normal lifecycle, run custom business logic defined in a custom microservice, and then return control to yuuvis® Momentum. This allows for powerful server-side customizations, such as controlling metadata visibility based on the user’s role, returning only portions of document content, and even integrating with third-party services, such as electronic document signing, during the content update.

The question is not what a document is, but what it can do for the user.

We want to help you make your documents work for you, not the other way round.
