yet another Federal Department entered into a frame agreement with t2b for architecture consulting services.

Looking forward to working with the ISCeco!

t2b received the frame agreements for supporting projects with architecture consulting from 2 different federal departments DETEC (german: UVEK) and FOITT (german: BIT) .

We are happy to be their trusted partners and are looking forward to interesting projects!

one of our colleague was in charge for the architecture of a major project in a bank in Brussels for the last 3 years. Welcome back !

Yenlo is triggering stage 2 of its expansion strategy and buys 100% the shares of our joint venture in Switzerland. A new manager for Yenlo DACH will be appointed soon.

Cooperation between Yenlo and t2b will continue, but Patrick Toenz no longer is managing Yenlo Switzerland. 

another industry customer decided to move to the flexible EA repository from our partner Orbus. iServer convices with a VISIO Frontend well integrated into it's repository.

one of t2b classic services: IT Planning in merger & aquisition situations. In this case the customer had to find out where the overlaps are between the 2 companies are:

  • in the business processes
  • in application functionality
  • and in the data 

Based on this analysis a roadmap was defined and the application & data migration planed and started.

The had work is still to come of course ....

t2b helped to improve the airline's business processes, data analysis and reporting capabilities - from the classic DWH/reporting solutions to the new self-service BI capabilities. 

Problems with data? ask t2b. 

Our Senior consultant Alain Willimann successfully completed the complex transfer of an existing DataWarehouse from an old to a new core asset management system.

The project involved data migration, structural adaptations that needed deep business understanding of complex asset management products and of course data verification, new reports and analysis.

Congratulations to Alain - that was tough work well done! 

t2b and our sister company Yenlo will participate with workshop at the ch/open cloud day .

CREATE YOUR OWN API

APIs are hot. If you working in IT, you cannot do without APIs. They are the only way to communicate data to partners and they are your only option to offer customers tailor-made services in real-time. All major companies like Google, Facebook but also insurances, museums and government agencies (like the geo.admin.ch) are using APIs to provide access to their systems and data. At this workshop, you will learn how to create and manage your own API with the Open Source WSO2 API Manager.

Our SAP AIF (Application Integration Framework) experts completed the project for a global logistcs supplier!

The company had started in 2014 migrating local SAP systems, from multiple offices around the world, into one, global SAP ECC solution. The main goal of this massive undertaking was to have global FI/CO system, where all operations would be posted on a close-to-online basis. Such a large in scale project leads to many challenges.

One of them was standardizing and reengineering the interfaces between SAP ECC and other systems.

with t2b's help , the customer decided that

  • SAP AIF add-on to SAP ECC should become a main point of monitoring of all interfaces involved,
  • Entire business logic behind the interfaces (e.g. DB lookups, business validations, value mapping tables etc.) should be moved to SAP AIF,
  • SAP PI should only handle connectivity, simple structural conversion and routing of the messages,
  • SAP PI mapping should be simplified to significantly decrease number of errors on that stage,
  • Where possible, direct connection between connecting systems can be introduced, skipping SAP PI as a mediator,
  • More advanced mappings should be done in SAP AIF, and hence errors on that stage should be handled in SAP AIF as well.

During the project also enhanced monitoring with BPO – Business Process Observer – was introduced. This increased the visibility of the data flows and allowed the team to add automated notification to business process responsible when 

Compared to the previous solution, the new architecture:

  • -        Clearly separates business logic/rules on the ERP side with AIF and technical connectivity into the SAP PI/PO middleware
  • -        Gives each business process responsible visibility of his dataflows via a graphical Dashboard
  • -        Gives back the control over the data to business, so that the users can fix data errors from partner systems themselves
  • -        Therefore, increases the speed with which (data) problems can be fixed while decreasing the workload on the IT support team – and related cost
  • -        Takes out the pressure of problem analysis and fixing from the overall organization

-> we believe that AIF is needed by every SAP customer to make the dataflows in and out of the SAP systems managable.

Yenlo Switzerland - Luzern Luzern and Basel, Switzerland and Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands, 3 January 2017- As of 1 January 2017 Yenlo and t2b will join their forces by launching the new entity Yenlo Switzerland AG. Yenlo Switzerland will be providing services based on the open source integration platform WSO2 in Switzerland.


Yenlo’s CEO Ruben van der Zwan: “We are already providing our services to Swiss customers from our offices in the Netherlands and Germany for several years. We’re rapidly growing and we are very happy to have found a local partner that can bring Architecture, Integration and Management skills into our joint venture”. 

t2b’s CEO Patrick Toenz: “t2b is quite new into open source products. With the new “Digital Transformation” trend (API, ESB, Analytics, Identity & Access Management and IoT) in mind, our technical architects have analyzed the WSO2 platform and were very enthusiastic. They found it better than commercial products in most, if not all, respects. It is lean, fast, extendible; world-class support and very cost effective. Basically, a “no-brainer” for any company with integration requirements. I am happy that we can partner up with Yenlo, who is WSO2 Premier Partner and has a lot of implementation experience with this innovative platform”.

Patrick Toenz will manage Yenlo Switzerland locally, whereas the Yenlo founders will preside the board. The joint venture has access to the 85+ integration experts of Yenlo, and a direct link to the developers of WSO2. Yenlo Switzerland now starts hiring local integration developers (Java), who want to become WSO2 experts.

Need to give your users a tool to monitor their cross-application business processes?

That's what we did for one of our big multinational customers:

- Dashboard to visualize the end-2-end process, including the number of instances (orders) currently in process in each step

- highlight the instances risking to be late (orange); send alert mail half a day before getting late (red)

- drill down into the connected systems error logs to find out what is producing the problem

- add notes, link Remedy tickets created to that instance, so that colleagues can see that action is taken

- return status to "green" when all is resolved.

 

Results:

- less stress: the process managers that the can finally see their process & the status

- less work: status of a specific order and all linked information (from different systems) can be seen at a glance

- less problems: potentially late instances are detected BEFORE they are actually getting late

- higher customer satisfaction: as there a less/no problems

 

and as always with Axway Decision Insights: implementation was fast and cost effective!
