European Logistics Giant Fraikin Deploys Fiorano SOA Platform to Power Electronic Traffic Fine and Inventory Management Systems

LOS GATOS, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/07/10 -- Fiorano Software, pioneer in peer-to-peer distributed integration, today announced that its SOA Platform has been deployed by Fraikin, a leading Logistics Giant in Europe. Fraikin has used Fiorano to deploy an electronic communication platform and to manage inventory across its geographically distributed facilities. The implementation of the Fiorano Solution at Fraikin was done by JVL, a leading system integrator and software solutions provider in France.

A leading vehicle fleet service provider in Europe, Fraikin has a fleet of over 40,000 vehicles. With such huge fleet on the road, incidents of traffic infringement are not uncommon - Fraikin receives over 12,000 traffic fines including parking and speeding tickets per year, all of which were being processed manually. With a government mandate to automate traffic fines and claims, Fraikin was under pressure to comply with the new directives and build a platform to facilitate electronic communication with the Government.

After an evaluation of several platforms, Fraikin selected the Fiorano Middleware SOA Platform to deploy their electronic communication platform. Using Fiorano's unique event-driven architecture, Fraikin rapidly developed a series of event processes to exchange and process traffic fines, enabling them to quickly put in place a solution that was compliant with the new Government regulations and enabled accurate and error-free record management of Fraikin's extensive fleet of vehicles.

"We worked closely with Fiorano while implementing the integration platform at Fraikin. With Fiorano, we were able to meet Government-mandated communication specifications and timelines. Fraikin's communication with the Government is now in sync with the specified regulations and their traffic fine processing system is streamlined to meet the demanding traffic penalty scenario in France", said Franck Lerivrain, Development Manager, Fraikin.

"The biggest challenge for Fraikin was to build a rapidly deployable integration platform, compliant with the Government norms. The platform had to meet key requirements of interoperability, ease of use and deployment, scalability and extensibility to other applications. Fiorano met all of these requirements", said Atul Saini, CEO, Fiorano.

Fraikin has already extended its use of the Fiorano SOA Platform to manage its complex warehouse inventory across over 200 integrated service facilities. The Fiorano SOA platform, together with its diverse set of adapters is being used to unify and merge data from different sources and formats into a one unified repository. Fraikin's existing legacy applications are also integrated and exposed to standard Web Service-based gateways using Fiorano's pre-built adapters, allowing Fraikin's partners and service facilities applications to co-exist with their legacy applications, adding to the overall ROI of this investment.

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

He is a recognized executive in the information technology fields of SOA, internet security, governance, and compliance. He has extensive experience with both start-ups and large companies, having been involved at the beginning of four IT industries: EDA, Open Systems, Computer Security and now SOA.
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty
