Technical specification


HOB is an intranet applikation. That means, the only thing required at the workstations is a web browser. It makes no difference whether such a workstation is a physical PC or a virtualized terminal (so called ‘thin clients’) – both is supported. HOB runs in these browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, 8, 9


Favourably, the software will use the “integrated security” option of the browser, which means that employees with their own login account will enjoy single sign-on automatically. For shared PC scenarios (like it is often the case in control rooms an the like), we offer a proper login/password management. Access control inside the software is done using a user/role assignment. The privileges and memberships of each role can be administered by the SWP key users themselves, allowing for a detailed control of read and write access.

Server infrastructure

Also on the server side, both physical and virtual environments are supported. HOB is scalable and made to grow with your business, accomodating to different amounts of data and throughput. You can have an installation using just one server, or distributed architectures with database and application servers on separate machines.

Database engine

HOB requires a relational database to store your data.

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000, 2005, and 2008

Application server

In order to publish the HOB portal on the intranet, a web server must be operated capable to serve ASP 2.0, and with the Microsoft.NET Framework 4 installed. In addition the background processing service of SWP will be installed on the same server, dealing with periodical jobs like calendar import functions.


All data pertaining to HOB are stored inside a single database. Therefore, a periodical backup of this database is a sufficient protection agains data loss in disaster recovery scenarios.
