We empower Connectivity

Because all companies use many software tools, the key to efficiency is their capability to interact with each other.

We want Hexapp to integrate as easily as possible into existing ecosystems while opening new opportunities.

To this end, Hexapp enables many interactions with widely adopted technologies.

Data web services

Exposing data and operations to external systems is primordial to integrate a platform within a company's intranet.

Hexapp offers a mix of generic and model-generated web services, both relying on industry standards such as WCF and REST. Developers can add or extend new services easily.

External connections

There are multiple situations requiring data from an external source (file, database, web services …).

Hexapp can currently reference up to 14 different types of datasource. Local data is synchronized from them according to defined bindings and a lot of handful settings.

Synchronized data can then benefit from all Hexapp features (like RLS, Relations, Workflows...)

WebDAV

Our WebDAV implementation allows the edition of Office and KeePass New window files directly in Hexapp, avoiding the tedious download/modify/upload cycle to update a document.

Opening one of these files from our pages will prompt the corresponding application and saving the file will send it back to Hexapp automatically.

Office binding

Hexapp provides many other functionnalities relative to Microsoft Office:

  • Hexapp data synchronization from Excel and Access

  • Excel table synchronization from Hexapp via web-service.

  • Word quickparts mail merging, values updated from Hexapp.

Web Browsers

Different preferences, devices and company policies lead to use various browsers.
We emphasize on giving the best user experience on the most popular software, staying in touch with evolving trends.

Authentication

Enterprises' security needs may require diverse authentication mechanisms.

Hexapp helps security actors by being compliant with any standard or custom IIS authentication scenario.

Windows users

It is possible to log in Hexapp using a local windows user. Local groups can be synchronized with Hexapp’s organization. Mostly used in development environment.

Active Directory

Widely used in companies, AD is the top Intranet user store. Hexapp can authentify users and synchronize groups without any configuration.

Forms

Using any standard .NET Membership provider as an account store, Hexapp allows to manage accounts in a generic interface. Very useful when no pre-defined user store is available.

Google

Hexapp can rely on Gmail to authentify Forms accounts. Using Google Oauth2 API, it enables users to log in Hexapp using Google signin mechanism without any custom development.

Yours

Hexapp was made to be agnostic to the authentication mechanism present.

This enables you to implement any authentication technology, present or future. Simply comply with IIS's identity management pipeline and Hexapp will automatically log in and persist authenticated identity as a user in Hexapp database.
