New Payments Platform
Indue

The world of banking is changing, becoming faster and better to meet the needs of our growing economy. Integral worked with Indue to develop an advanced integration solution so it can remain at the forefront of the industry.

THE CHALLENGE

The New Payments Platform (NPP) is a major industry-wide initiative to develop a new infrastructure for Australian payments. It’s a fast, flexible and data-rich payments system for governments, businesses and consumers to meet the needs of our demanding economy.  Indue was an early adopter in the original tranche of financial institutions to take on NPP. As part of this, Indue needed to be ready with its NPP solution by industry target dates.

THE SOLUTION

We developed this solution alongside Indue’s internal team working to its existing processes, controls and quality gates to ensure stakeholders enjoyed exceptional service throughout the entire project.  The successful solution we developed included, a future-proof design of a logical integration solution to meet Indue’s NPP needs, establishing a Red Hat JBoss Fuse integration platform and creating two critical physical services that used the new platform: a payment gateway to Back Office Settlement System (Universe) and a payment gateway to the Indue Case Management System.

Open Banking
Heritage Bank

Today, Heritage Bank has grown to become Australia’s largest customer-owned bank and is one of the longest-running financial institutions in the country.

THE CHALLENGE

The New Payments Platform (NPP) is a major industry-wide initiative to develop a new infrastructure for Australian payments. It’s a fast, flexible and data-rich payments system for Australian governments, businesses and consumers to meet their payment needs.  Heritage Bank had an inflight project that had been struggling to achieve some of the broader business outcomes necessary to enable NPP.

THE SOLUTION

Integral developed and implemented an integration platform that not only serviced Heritage’s immediate NPP needs, but would also meet their future integration needs. Integral’s value-add was the open architectural principles used on this important project—in effect future-proofing the solution for many years to come.

Field Force Automation
ENERGEX

ENERGEX had a low level automation system in place for their field workers that was not handling the increased quantity of data, providing sufficient accuracy, or speed of delivery to the field.

THE CHALLENGE

When developing a replacement system, ENERGEX wanted the new system to improve customer service levels, assist field staff in completing safer and higher performing field work, and use a smarter, integrated electronic schedule and dispatch tool (Ventyx Service Suite).

THE SOLUTION

The resulting solution uses Field Force Automation (FFA) technology, implemented with the latest release of the Service Suite solution from Ventyx and incorporated the integration of a number of ENERGEX’s host systems. This allows ENERGEX crews now locate faults in the network faster than ever through satellite navigation, tracking, and dispatch. The FFA computer system provides field crews with unprecedented access to electronic information about outages and customer premises from their vehicle, reducing phone calls and travel time during storms and other peak periods. The new system benefits millions of people throughout Queensland and New South Wales, providing faster, more efficient responses from ENERGEX.

PIP Charge Calculator
Gold Coast City Council

Under IPA, all Councils are required to prepare and implement a planning scheme to help guide growth and change in their areas. Rapid growth in population, coupled with new legislation, prompted the Gold Coast City Council (GCCC) to plan an appropriate business solution for the future, requiring high levels of flexibility and efficiency.

THE CHALLENGE

The Developer Contributions Group is a specialist group in the GCCC responsible for calculating infrastructure charges on a daily basis. These calculations were manually intensive and heavily reliant on the speed, mathematical skills, and long-term concentration capabilities of employees. Integral worked with the GCCC to create a semi-automated program that helped support the human resources during this rapid growth. This solution aimed to achieve better satisfaction of legislative requirements, cost reductions associated with the implementation of the new legislation and the development of a flexible business solution that provided a framework for current systems and future processes.

THE SOLUTION

Integral built an Oracle Fusion Middleware based SOA solution that integrated Oracle Policy Automation software (formerly RulesBurst) with the Council’s mainframe based Asset Management System, Property Developer Contribution and Geographic Information System to provide a streamlined, semi-automated process. This integrated capability was ultimately exposed as a web based application called the PIP Charge Calculator.

Student Experience Program
Griffith University

The Student Experience Program was part of the redevelopment of the programs and courses website and student enrolment process, addressing the issues with the previous system.

THE CHALLENGE

By understanding the user requirements for the business system, Integral provided direction on system architecture and technical integration to meet scalability, performance, security, maintainability and operability requirements. This included modelling an enterprise web services framework, producing a time and resource plan for delivery and facilitating technical solution until project handover.

THE SOLUTION

Integral delivered the system and data integration components for the Griffith Online Programs and Courses and Online Enrolments applications. The team achieved this by developing an advanced, near real time Operational Data Warehouse (called the DataHub) that reflected the current state of programs, courses and student information in a centralised, validated repository. DataHub was developed using a combination of data modelling skills and integration tools such as Oracle SQL Developer, Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle SOA Suite.

ClimateSmart Home Services
Local Government Infrastructure Services (LGIS)

The ClimateSmart Home Services (CSHS) was a Queensland Government initiative (managed by LGIS), specifically designed to help Queenslanders reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their household bills.

THE CHALLENGE

LGIS sought to upgrade its systems to enable business improvements and efficiencies in delivering the ClimateSmart Home Service (CSHS). This involved redeveloping the ClimateSmart Home Audit System, a real time workforce automation system for electricians visiting customers’ homes and performing audits. Supporting works included a website with the CSHS booking system, an online feedback module and the ‘How Low Can You Go’ portal, which provided in-home audit results and recommendations on savings and energy use.

THE SOLUTION

Integral and LGIS collaborated to develop the ClimateSmart Home Service information and data management systems. A very useable, highly adaptable product, CSHS succeeded in raising awareness to saving energy in Queensland across markets. CSHS’s new technology architecture included a high performance hosted enterprise class infrastructure that provided efficient availability (99.9%) and was scalable (for increased customer levels.) Supporting high load levels, Integral’s SupportNow service also provided 24×7 management service for the solution and infrastructure components.
