In a world that is evolving faster and faster, anticipating the times is no longer a luxury, but a necessity.
Only through innovation we can build a future even greater than the past. That’s why at MOLO//17 we are first to develop, test and adopt technologies that can have a significant impact on your business.
We constantly invest energy and resources in developing innovation so that we’re always able to offer cutting-edge solutions to all our customers. We do it with enthusiasm and without preconceptions, selecting only the tools that work best and that allow us to successfully face even the biggest challenges. And that’s because, in general, people don’t necessarily want this technology or the other… They just want products and services that work well.
We develop apps for mobile devices using programming tools that guarantee portability, scalability and reliability. Combining these aspects is what helps companies improve interactions with their customers, partners and employees. We also integrate the development of mobile apps into a broader strategy, based on microservices, which brings many benefits, including higher productivity, lower costs, and greater security, visibility and control.
IoT stands for “internet of things”. This category covers all applications used in the smart use of objects we physically use: from smart houses to smart cities, from smart mobility to intelligent production (Industry 4.0). We use different communication interfaces and network protocols (NFC, MQTT, BLE) to transform passive objects into devices that are not only capable of interacting with people, but can also make decisions (AI, cloud, etc).
VR and AR stands for virtual reality and augmented reality.
Virtual reality allows people to project themselves into a different place with the help of a special viewer (Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard, HTC Vive, etc). It therefore allows you to live immersive experiences in first person.
Augmented reality, on the other hand, enriches the world in which we live with additional elements and information by placing them in context. The areas of use of these technologies are growing dramatically and range from the world of media, art and marketing to industry.
The Serverless approach allows you to develop applications without having to manage an underlying physical infrastructure. Application developers don’t have to worry about scaling their services or provisioning servers because these tasks are performed by the cloud provider or directly on-premises. Unlike traditional infrastructures, events in the serverless model activate code execution and then the cloud provider dynamically allocates this code to machine resources for that function. The user is then charged for its use until the code execution end.
The serverless model has the following peculiarities:
- you only pay for what you actually use
- management of redundancy and multi-AZ (Availability Zones) is built-in
- scaling management is entrusted to the provider
- there are a self-management and self-provisioning of servers/containers
One serverless method used is Function-as-a-Service (FaaS), in which custom server-side logic is written by developers. Server-side code runs in fully managed containers from a cloud provider.
- Cost optimization since they are calculated only for periods of activity.
- Elimination of developer tasks related to managing scalability and server provisioning.
- Greater scalability and flexibility of the system.
- Faster code release times than traditional models.
- More time to focus on creating business value.
NoSQL databases break the traditional data storage scheme with relational model and allow us to represent heterogeneous data through flexible schemes.
NoSQL document databases are ideal for applications that require large volumes of data, low latency and flexible data models. They are built to be scalable and can respond quickly to the data management needs of modern businesses. In such document databases, for example, information is stored in JSON documents, greatly streamlining the data structure.
- Flexibility with schemes that allow faster and iterative development of data that evolves over time.
- Ideal for the management of semi-structured and unstructured data.
- Scalability achieved with horizontal scaling through distributed architecture.
- High level of service availability.
- Support for a large number of concurrent users.
GlueSync is the leading Data management solution, bridging safely and effectively NoSQL databases to RDBMS.

Modern APIs, such as REST and GraphQL, are a very effective tool to integrate and connect data, applications and devices in order to facilitate communication between different software and application services.
With the introduction of GraphQL, the latency in communications has been optimized, the responsiveness and user experience of applications have also improved.
- They adhere to standards, are easy to develop, easily accessible and understandable to developers who need to integrate them into their projects.
- Since they are usually designed to be standardized, they are developed with particular attention to security and governance and are documented and versioned.
- They have superior performance and scalability compared to traditional APIs.
The approach of a microservices architecture compared to the traditional monolithic one involves the creation of a system that starts from a set of small and isolated services, each of which has its own data and is self-consistent, scalable and resilient to failure.
With this approach, each microservice is responsible for specific activities and can communicate with other services to create even more complex systems. Since the microservices are separate, each development team can work on different components at the same time, without having to wait for one team to finish its part, and you can also use different programming languages and patterns for each microservice.
- Much higher productivity and speed.
- Flexibility in the use of technologies.
- Scalability of the developed solutions.
- Autonomous and cross-functional teams.
An Identity Management system allows you to manage the identity of users in a unified and secure way.
Modern Identity Management solutions, even in the cloud, guarantee greater security than custom-developed solutions by companies and ease of integration into applications which therefore also reduces time to market.
An Identity Management infrastructure can unleash the full potential of an app, improving and speeding up the decision-making process with a user-centric approach and obtaining a higher return on investment thanks to better supervision of users and how they access services.
- Simplified management on a centralized platform
- Better safety and quality of management than a custom development
- Ease of integration with external authentication systems (e.g. social media login)
- Savings on development times and reduced time to market.
- Compatibility, especially in the case of advanced technological partners, with the evolution of standards and future needs of IAM (continuous authentication, defense against cyberattacks and IoT).
