QAD Enterprise Applications support a variety of databases depending on client requirements for specific components of the suite. Databases supported include Progress OpenEdge and Oracle RDBMS..

Deployment Independence

When companies deploy solutions globally they will often find a need to have separate instances of the application in locations where telecommunications costs and reliability make a centralized instance impractical. QAD Enterprise Applications feature a unique deployment architecture called Shared Service Domains (SSD), designed to allow the computer infrastructure to be separated from the application configuration and business deployment. QAD SSD allows QAD Enterprise Applications to be configured so that different locations and business entities can be attached to different application instances, but those application instances operate as a single virtual application.

QAD’s architecture allows different languages, local configurations and business rules to be simply configured or reconfigured, as the business needs change. QAD SSD makes it easy to add additional instances or virtual entities as the business grows or changes without the constraints of older monolithic applications architectures.
