The AMC MovieWatcher Patron Editor is used by AMC personnel to manage MovieWatcher Points and membership information. This was a Versata HTML PDX based client with both onsite and offsite development support.
"Line Of Accounting System (LOAS)", +95% automation
Line Of Accounting System provides the management of Boeing activity numbers which are used to charge time and materials. This system also provides traceability of each activity number to the contract or other authorizing document that established it. Thus helping Boeing meet it's governmental and contractual accounting requirements.
This application is just about to enter User Acceptance Testing and we've been able to maintain +95% automation. That translates into an adaptable application where the development staff manages very little code by hand. This project is using a Versata 5.5 HTML PDX client with WebSphere 4.0 and an Oracle database.
"HP3000 Migration Proof of Concept", helping others work smarter.
Provided mentoring services to Cobol and Cold Fusion developers. The goal of this project was for the developers to gain an understanding of how to maximize the utilization of Versata. This was also an introduction to version control and Java. This was a Java Application built on Versata 5.0 EJB with an Oracle 8 database.
"Ship CN", to hit the ground running is a team effort.
We were called upon during "crunch mode" to help complete this HTML application. We worked closely with the existing development team and management to gain knowledge of the Ship CN application and help produce the items necessary to get the project out on schedule.
Created a mechanism for uploading and storing files from a Versata HTML client. The name and location of the file was loaded into the database via the VLS. The upload mechanism was then integrated into an existing application. We helped resolve existing development difficulties.
"Messenger", new challenges.
Our developers provided mentoring, Technical Architechture leadership, and good coding techniques using Versata Studio (Jade) 4.1aT. We helped create the Contract Management and Capacity Release portions of this high transaction based natural gas pipeline management system. The highlights of the design implemented include:
"OTR (Online Training Registration) and QPL (Quarterly Profit and Loss)", remote support really can work.
We remotely support the development of a web-based online training registration application that will be utilized by franchisees. The front end is Versata HTML, while the back end updates an Informix database and Centra. Centra is a web-casting and web-based training tool. We helped in the creation of Connectors that pass XML to/from the VLS and Centra to keep both Informix and Centra in-sync. The connectors and their associated business objects also reduce the complexity of the front end. By the use of data object events and actions, we are able to build a "logical commit" that encompasses Informix and Centra.
We remotely supported the development of a web-based Quarterly Profit and Loss (QPL) upload system. The franchisee needed the ability to pass worksheets to the Domino's headquarters for quarterly profit and loss processing. Once the file is transported to the headquarters, it is ran thru the Versata Logic Server and ultimately loaded into an Informix database. Any rule violations are transmitted back to the client for correction. The concept of bundled constraints was also introduced. This is where many rule violations are collected and sent back to the client, certainly not an out-of-the-box feature of Versata.
"Passkey", not a trivial undertaking.
Our developers used Versata Studio (Jade) 4.0c to create the Contract Management portion of this high transaction based application. The highlights of the design implementation include:
"WRAP", meeting the mentoring challenge.
We provided mentoring services to Versata developers. This was an enterprise level application that provides electrical power management. This Java application was built in Versata 4.1a and Oracle 8. Our support included:
NGS - "Next Global Solutions."
FNIS is raising the bar in the title and escrow industry. They are delivering a nationwide, web-based title and escrow system. Aidera have helped in laying the foundation of processes to this largest Title and Escrow company. The areas of team development, build procedures and deployment, performance monitoring and mentoring are among the areas that Aidera has been highly involved in bringing this project close to production.
Versata 5.1.x has been used in the initial production of the application. This is a Java app, using Websphere 3.5.x and DB2 ver 7. A multi-site source control tool (ClearCase) has been leveraged in handling team development.
"BEEM", hooking systems together.
Aidera provided mentoring and lead development role in creating a bond electronic exchange management system. The messaging system was architected using Together and Tibco Rendezvous was used for messaging implementation.
Just a little review.
Asked to review their existing application and make recommendations to the current and future use of Versata.
"CUBS", helping people in transition.
Aidera provided mentoring and lead development role in creating the first real-time accounting system for their benefits system called CUBS (Comprehensive Unemployment Benefit System). We helped automate some of the business process that led the state to win multiple triple-crown awards.
