SageTea Enterprise

Build enterprise applications directly from business requirements

SageTea Software is an Ottawa-based company that has developed a fundamental breakthrough in creating software applications. Our proprietary Text-to-Software® development platform uses natural language to automatically create enterprise-level software directly from business requirements, for a fraction of the cost and in far less time compared to traditional programming methodologies.

The flexibility and speed of our Text-to-Software platform makes it an ideal choice for organizations in the energy, defense, asset management, healthcare, and mobile industry sectors.

SageTea® Software and the Build in Canada Innovation Program

In July 2015, SageTea Software was awarded a contract for a Build in Canada Innovation Program project. Valued at almost $500K, the project will test the strength of our Text-to-Software development platform when working with big data. Under this contract, SageTea Software will develop the Mining Data Classification System for The Giant Mine Remediation Project, a 50-year, $500M project. This system will allow secure, cloud-based access for key stakeholders to important historical and current documents related to this project. Stakeholders include federal, territorial and municipal governments, First Nations communities, and environmental groups. Internal estimates to develop this system internally using traditional software technologies were in excess of $2M. Using Text-to-Software, we estimate the entire cost of development to be less than $500K. Shared Services Canada has expressed interest in monitoring this project with an eye to finding other areas to use SageTea Software to lower IT costs.

The Giant Mine Remediation Project

Between 1948 and 2004, the Giant Mine was a major economic driver for Yellowknife and the Northwest Territories. When the mine closed, attention focused on the environmental issues left behind, notably 237,000 tonnes of arsenic trioxide stored in underground chambers. The Project’s primary goal is to protect human health and safety, and the environment. To do so requires the long-term containment and management of the arsenic trioxide waste, water treatment and the surface clean up of the site. Read more…

Army Mission Planning Tool

In the fall of 2014 SageTea was approached by a global defense company to assess SageTea’s Text to Software Platform in developing an Army Mission Planning Tool for system management. Ideally, the mission planning tool would allow an Army planner to upload orders and supporting documentation, enter minimal additional information, and produce an output file that could be used to configure the operational Network/Communication System. Such a tool could provide a useful outcome to the Army, namely increasing mission speed and/or accuracy.

Standard Customization

The standard method for customizing applications is to use our proprietary Text-to-Software tool. The Standard Customization service will produce one (1) unit of customization for a SageTea Application. One unit of customization is the equivalent of two hours’ work for a SageTea-certified solution provider using only the Text-to-Software platform. SageTea Software will deploy a new version of the Application along with final documentation produced by the Text-to-Software tool.

Data Migration

Clients may use our Text-to-Software tool to migrate data from their existing databases. Our Data Migration service will migrate or link one (1) unit of data from an existing database with a SageTea Application. One unit of data consists of a single set of schema and data from a single database. The data source must work with one of the following drivers: ODBC, MS Access, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MS SQL Server, Oracle.

Advanced Customization

You can use Text-to-Software to analyze your data, develop business rules and design workflows. The Advanced Customization provides one (1) unit of advanced customization, the equivalent of four days’ work by a SageTea-certified solution provider using only Text-to-Software.

The work can include any of the following activities:

  • Development of Use Cases and Requirements
  • Importing content from websites
  • Development of workflows using SageTea
  • Development of business rules

Business Intelligence

Clients can use “Text to Software” to analyze data and generate reports from a wide variety of databases. The Business Intelligence Service will provide one (1) unit of business intelligence, the equivalent of four days’ work by a SageTea-certified solution provider using only Text-to-Software.

The Business Intelligence service can consist of:

  • Connecting to and analyzing third party databases
  • Designing reports in SageTea
  • Designing PDF reports
  • Integrating existing business rules into reports
  • Reverse engineering legacy systems to extract Use Cases and Requirements into SageTea
