Portal and Portlet DevelopmentOur story is only as successful as our clients’. Please contact us for additional details about one of the projects described below, or for additional customer solutions not detailed here.
Department of Veterans Affairs / Veterans Health Administration
Challenge:Veteran's Administration needed a public-facing portal (www.myhealth.va.gov) to provide veterans with access to health care content and electronic health management capabilities, including online prescription refill and an electronic health record. The portal must be build in a short time and capable of handling of personal data of up to 25 million veterans.
Solution:CreamTec teamed with EDS, a leading systems integrator, to provide system architecture, design, development and project management to the VHA. We supplied knowledge of key open source packages, including Spring and Hibernate, as well as team leadership/mentoring and framework development. We were directly involved in re-architecting and rewriting the core MyHealtheVet engine away from proprietary BEA Weblogic Portal controls into a streamlined architecture and manageable set of open source components that helped VHA avoid additional vendor lock-in and significantly reduce their ongoing maintenance and development costs. In order to speed up the portal services development CreamTec has created a framework for rapid development of services and portlets.
Abu Dhabi eGovernment
Challenge:Abu Dhabi government needed to build a global portal where UAE residents and external users can obtain information and services from the government. The timeframe was extremely challenging with only 4 months given to collect the requirements, choose the architecture, develop the portal services and deploy them into production.
Solution:CreamTec teamed with Injazat Data Systems, a leading UAE software development company, to provide system architecture, design, development and project management to the client. Our professional services helped with staffing the project, establishing the infrastructure and development methodology from ground up and in leading the construction of services. We have coordinated the development teams in the US, UK and UAE with the goal of completing the first set of eServices in less then 6 months. The project was built on Oracle Portal platform with a mix of complimentory open source frameworks.
Challenge:AT&T Wireless (formerly SunCom PCS) needed an order entry system for use in creating customer accounts and activating wireless phones at Kiosks and company stores
Solution:CreamTec lead the design and development of a Java-based activation application that collects the browser and communicates with back-end services to create customer account in the billing system. After the credit check with a credit agency the phone is activated with the whole process taking less then 20 minutes. The application was used in more then 5000 points of sale with more then 99.5% site uptime. CreamTec engineers also performed load and scalability testing to ensure that software and hardware architecture can scale under load.
