    Digital Transformation with Scala

    With the ongoing pandemic these years, changes undertaken by the organizations to survive the same includes Digital Transformation as one of their keys in restructuring. Additionally, in today’s world, customers expect relevant content anywhere they are browsing regardless of the mode or device they are using which in turn is forcing businesses and companies to change their business models and adapt to the new market trends. To match the customer requirements, businesses need to opt for new technologies to provide unmatched and always-connected customer experience which in turn changing the company’s strategy.

    About Digital Transformation

    Digital Transformation involves embracing digital technology to transform businesses or services, by replacing manual or non-digital processes or an old digital process with a newer one. This includes technologies that create and modify new business processes, and models, to meet varying market and business requirements. This refers to modernization in IT which could include cloud computing, big-data, data analytics, artificial intelligence, etc. that improves end user experience.

    Digital Transformation with Scala

    Scala is a fusion language that combines structures from both object oriented and functional languages. It not only keeps object-oriented patterns but also provides features to write code that is efficient, clean, extendable, and testable at the same time. This hybrid nature also makes some of the traditional object-oriented patterns more updated using clearer techniques.

    Scala provides a wide-ranging accessible and user-friendly experience with an engaging platform that allows users to plan, design, manage and provide content to multiple digital sources and displays at large for industries such as finance, retail, entertainment, healthcare, and more. Scala has progressed to embrace expertise in creating cutting-edge marketing technology solutions incorporating artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, and sensor technology to name a few, and also builds a full in-house set of technology including hardware, software, and services for providing digital signage platforms. The Scala platform is scalable and flexible that allows every aspect of customization of the digital experience.

    Scala’s is a real-time marketing and analytics platform that uses sensor technology to collect customer, and employee data, and getting insight into audience behavior, which helps businesses convert this data into insights that can be used for marketing further and can develop a more directed approach for their marketing strategy. Similarly, by driving audience engagement transformation, Scala serves an extensive range of clientele across multiple verticals such as restaurants, retail, finance, entertainment, education, hospitality, government, and healthcare. With an integrated solution that includes IT infrastructure, software applications, cloud, and digital communication, Scala offers a 360-degree strategic image to best assist digital transformation.

    In Scala Architecture components that are included, provides a scalable and robust platform to the users for their perfect digital transformation needs. These components are described below:

    Scala Play Framework – Web applications can be easily built with Scala using the Play framework which is based on a stateless, lightweight, and web-friendly architecture. Built on Akka, Play provides anticipated and negligible resource (CPU, memory, threads) consumption for building highly scalable apps. Play framework is safe with built-in testing tools, and is real-time enabled, and supports REST APIs, JSON, NoSQL, and Big Data. It uses Maven central libraries, various play plugins, and many cloud deployment options which makes it proven, scalable and reliable.

    Scala Akka – Scala Akka platform as built on the principles of Reactive, simplifies the delivery of complex distributed systems with millions of events taking place per second with turbo-charged micro-services that scale dynamically based upon the traffic/number of users hitting to meet the demands. With a mix of Scala and Akka, high-performing systems such as event sourcing and data processing can be managed. Also, the Akka is a server-less architecture where native cloud apps can be developed which means the company has to pay only for the usage thus making it cost-effective. It builds resilient, scalable, highly concurrent, distributed, and responsive applications.

    Scala Framework simplifies the implementation of business needs such as digital transformation, based on rules, processes, integration, and monitoring which helps in reducing costs and time for deployment. By providing the best support in libraries Scala allows continuous development of apps at a very fast pace while delivering more capability and providing easier integration.

    Scala JS – Also, Scala 3 has a completely new compiler codebase and supports for Scala JS which means, that one can cross-compile the Scala code to a JS executable that run on all web browsers while getting benefits of the web platform in terms of security, deploy-ability and hyper-linking, shared-code and client-server integration.

    Scala Test – Scala Test is an open-source, concise framework where we can test Scala, Scala JS, Scala Native, or Java code. With integration to popular tools like TestNG, EasyMock, and JUnit, it is aimed to do different styles of testing. It increases the team productivity through simple, clear
    tests and executable specifications that improve both code and communication. This is scalable for projects of all sizes and can be easily extended depending upon the demand of users.

    Scala Design Patterns – Design patterns help developers to write readable, efficient, extendable, and testable code. Creational, Structural, Behavioral, and Functional are the type of design patterns used in Scala.

    Scala Coding – When compared to Java and other top programming languages, Scala has concise code notations and takes fewer number of lines of code to create the same functionality. Due to this minimal coding, Scala enables faster development, testing, and deployment of the applications. It also gives benefits as it has code compatibility with Java. All these make Scala a revolutionary language for digital transformation.

    With a team of innovative architects, and trend-setters ultra-modern futurists, Scala is on its path to becoming one of the most followed digital transformation solution providers across the IT world.
