One of our aims in developing STAR-Trak is to make it as easy as possible for other educational institutions to implement it. As a result the technology solution comprises:
•PHP – A server side scripting language, which is fast, reliable, simple to use, open source and has a huge community supporting it.
•CodeIgniter framework – very lightweight compared with others.
•MVC – (Model, View, Controller) architecture
•Users can be authenticated against a corporate directory.
•Apache Server version. 2.2.11 or higher
•PHP version 5.2.9 or higher (Reporting layer)
•Oracle database 10g/11g
•Data Warehouse – Data Integration layer (Facts and Dimensions)
