People
Emphasys has been working with Internet technologies from their inception. Our web designers, computer scientists, and human interface specialists, have worked on hundreds of web development efforts... from the very small, to the quite large.


Technology
Over the years, Emphasys has deployed systems using a wide range of web technologies (PHP, Perl, JSP, WebObjects, and others), and utilizing a variety of database systems as well (MySQL, DB2, Oracle, SyBase, Postgres, and SQL Server). Emphasys is an ardent promoter and active participant in the OpenSource Technology movement. While we make use of a variety of commercial technologies, our in-house systems are centered on standards-based software -- Linux/UNIX, Apache, PHP, Perl, and MySQL. This translates to more reliable systems based on widely-accepted standards with a lower cost of entry.

Many of Emphasys' web applications are based on PHP, the most popular scripting language on the web. PHP is an opensource language designed specifically for web development, and is most similar to Microsoft's ASP environment. PHP applications are faster than Java Servlets, IIS/ASP, and Perl-based applications by 100-400% depending on configuration. PHP isn't utilized simply for its speed: the language has a massive base of developers, and is rapidly evolving - real requests from real developers are integrated into the language on a regular basis, making PHP an excellent choice for developing applications for production use. Finally, PHP is the most widely installed Apache server module -- it is active on more than 7,500,000 domains -- a strong indicator of PHP's utility for web development.
