PLATFORM – CASE STUDIES
The Australian economy is powered by transport and NTI is Australia’s leading insurer in that space. Integral worked with NTI to develop an advanced containerisation platform so it can remain at the forefront of the industry and respond rapidly to change.
NTI first adopted containers in 2017, leveraging the power to assist with new machine learning modelling techniques. NTI built a fit for purpose, container management platform during that period but as the value and opportunities of containers became obvious NTI needed to implement an enterprise level management platform. The NTI project team identified several key areas to focus on during their evaluation of various containerisation platforms.
After undertaking a proof-of-concept on a small group of applications, the project team found that Red Hat’s OpenShift platform was the best fit and value for money. Once the NTI team decided to adopt the Red Hat OpenShift platform, the project could then move on to acquisition and eventually integrating Red Hat’s OpenShift platform with existing systems.
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 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.
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.
AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND COLLEGE OF VETERINARY SCIENCE (ANZCVS) supports the veterinary profession in Australia and New Zealand through the assessment and recognition of expertise and rewarding of excellence.
ANZCVS needed a system where examiners working remotely could enter exam results for verification, moderation and storage. Their current system had little automation in the processing and recording of exam results giving rise to the possibility of human error.
After thorough elicitation of requirements with the ANZCVS stakeholders, Integral designed a web based solution built on industry recognized tools, ensuring readily available skills in the market. The system is hosted in Microsoft Azure to allow for on demand scaling as well as simple technology upgrades without significant configuration.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) legacy 131940 Traffic and Travel Information website (TTI) was difficult to maintain, with no map interface to visually display the current status of the Queensland Road Network.
The redeveloped website’s main aim was to provide Queensland road users with a near real-time view of activities occurring on state-controlled roads, roads of regional significance and some local government roads, in parallel to the ever-increasing need for reliable and timely TTI.
Integral worked closely with TMR stakeholders to source a highly available and scalable software as a service solution. The resulting website includes an easily navigated source of traffic and road event information for the public, multiple channels to deliver this information by trusted sources, and integration with other departmental systems including the TMR Incident Management System. It also allows users to customise their view of traffic information and integrates live traffic web camera focus from across Queensland.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
