Mobile and social media like fire and brimstone.


The future of IT will take place mobile. And successful will be who manages to align its business model to be aware of the strengths of mobile and put the benefits of the consumer in the focus. Smartphones and tablets have long been considered reliable equipment, which make employees more flexible and independent, and so extend the availability of the company implicitly over the regular working hours.

This means faster decisions, more direct reactions, higher availability and ultimately higher performance in spite of increasing motivation and feeling of more space and time.


CTI Startup for entrepreneur

About 40 professional business coaches offer start-ups in Switzerland a particular competence network. They were once even start-ups and are experienced in the industry today. Based on TWI AG's own learning management system Global Teach, we build the training portal for the young entrepreneurs.

Radio Monitoring, networked monitoring

Control instruments, data acquisition and display in real-time on a map or in diagram is a longterm project together with OFCOM. Distributed over the whole Switzerland, linked together, fault-tolerant and high availability measurement stations and measuring-Pcs are avaiable to the operator who can access it from any measurement station to take measurements or initiate long-term measurement campaigns.


Sophisticated tools for innovative ideas

Microsoft .NET




JavaScript, jQuery






Microsoft .NET

The .NET Framework is a software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large library and provides language interoperability across several programming languages. Programs written for the .NET Framework execute in a software environment known as the Common Language Runtime (CLR), an application virtual machine that provides services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. The class library and the CLR together constitute the .NET Framework.

Only the Software engineers with many years of experience are able to optimally use the extensive class libraries, language elements and interfaces of .NET. For this reason we have decided to concentrate us on .Net and use as preferable basis of our solutions. Continuity, large user community, and continuing education are just as important as software architecture and software concepts.
For customers, the benefits:
Security, investment protection and lower operating costs thanks to competitors and good support in the market.


Microsoft SQL Server

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. As a database, it is a software product whose primary function is to store and retrieve data as requested by other software applications, be it those on the same computer or those running on another computer across a network (including the Internet). There are at least a dozen different editions of Microsoft SQL Server aimed at different audiences and for different workloads (ranging from small applications that store and retrieve data on the same computer, to millions of users and computers that access huge amounts of data from the Internet at the same time).


Security: SQL Server provides two security models including integration with Windows Authentication to provide robust security platform for managing your organizations information.

Scalability: SQL Server is a highly scalable enterprise database platform capable of managing petabytes of data while delivery high performance.

Business Intelligence: SQL Server Standard and Enterprise Editions come with extensive business intelligence capabilities through SQL Server Analysis Services.

Integration: SQL Server provides a robust set of integration tools call SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).



 what in mechanics works for a long time becomes common. In computer science this experience is comming slowly to practice. Why to do everything by yourself if there are framework and recommendations. TWI AG thinks also this way!

Javascript Frameworks

The frameworks jQuery, Mootools, Knockout, Backbone, and how they all are called, are the basis of modern web technology. With the rapid pace of technology progress, choosing the right frameworks, for a project is not always easy, because what counts today could be tomorrow "out". Only those who every day works with them and time invests for it recognize trends and flops. Customers of TWI AG can rely on us to take the right horse.

Mobile Apps

The times in which we develop applications exclusively with user interface that are considered to have a monitor and operated by keyboard and mouse are over. Meanwhile, it is not uncommon to take smartphones and tablets as enduser devices too. These devices are now packed with diverse technical gimmicks: GPS module, accelerometer, audio player, camera, etc. in iPhone, Android & Co. as standard.

A web application often has limited access to all these functions. For full access you need a native app that is installed directly on the mobile device. In the development you have to decide for one of the worlds smartphone: iPhone, Android, Windows or Blackberry. However, with the open source PhoneGap framework, there is a cross-platform development environment, which allows to develop native applications using HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. Thus, the development costs for the different platforms can be drastically reduced.

Cloud Solution

For the TWI AG, as an innovative software development company, the cloud is a hot topic. TWI AG is a competent partner for solutions based on PaaS and SaaS.

A cloud application is only worth as much as the architecture on which it is based.
An application must be developed directly for the cloud. Scalability and high availability have to be considered from the start.

1 The performance of an application depends on the provided cloud environment.

2 Only with good planning and sufficient resources performant cloud application  can be provided.

3 For each virtual resource, a physical hardware must be provided with adequate power so that a private cloud is brought the expected performance.

4 Service Level Agreement (SLA) lets you optimize performance.

5 The permanent monitoring of all application metrics in the cloud is essential.

Standard programs or individual applications using standard components, which fits better?






With standard you can save money in the evaluation, but you will waste it 1000 time more by the enduser.


With standard software the evaluation team move the responsibility to the enduser.
