CodeFutures FireStorm/DAO Accelerates Carrera Communications' Telecoms Application Development By 30%
CodeFutures has accelerated telecommunications application development for Carrera Communications with its award-winning FireStorm/DAO tool that generates the Java persistence code for accessing databases.
Carrera Communications offers local and long distance phone services to residential and small business customers. To provide the best possible customer service, Carrera Communications have developed online systems such as order processing, online payments, customer service help and live chat capabilities. Because telecommunications customer support systems are data intensive, database access is a key component of any new system that is developed. By automating development of data access, Carrera Communications has reduced development times, thereby providing costs savings and quicker response times to new business requirements.
"FireStorm /DAO helped us to reduce the development time by around 30%. We have a lot of medium sized databases (MySQL, SQL Server) and writing the database access code for all tables used to be a nightmare. Using FireStorm/DAO, writing database access code is a breeze." Vinny George, IT Operations Lead, Carrera Communications
"The telecommunications industry is well-known to be data-intensive. We're very pleased that Carrera Communications is using CodeFutures FireStorm/DAO in so many mission critical applications" says Andy Grove, CTO, CodeFutures Software.
FireStorm/DAO is available in Enterprise , Architect, and OEM editions. FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition allows new custom code generation templates to be developed and integrated with the FireStorm/DAO Studio environment. FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition includes the source code for the Java code generation templates .

The FireStorm/DAO Enterprise Edition is priced at $595 per developer. FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition is priced at $3,495 per developer. There are no runtime deployment licensing fees.
