Success Stories

Designed, Developed and implemented the Social Services Security Administration System.

 

 

Client:
Provincial Government: Western Cape: Social Services

 

Project:
Designed, Developed and implemented the Social Services Security Administration System. This system was written to move towards a single point of entry to all social services systems.
Also provided a blue print for adopting the Model-View-Controller Architecture Strategy.

Duration:
This project was completed in 3 months, while the architecture services has extended throughout our stay at PGWC.

Background:
A single sign-on based security system across all the Social Services Information Systems. The security system needed to be administered from one central point and be role based. Also, the menu system needed to be dynamic allowing the administrator to create new menu items in the relevant systems. We designed, developed and implemented this solution.

Technical:
An intranet website built utilising the following technologies:

  • Presentation - Javascript, HTML
  • Server Side - OC4J, Java, Java Server Pages
  • Database - JDBC into Oracle 8i procedures
  • Environment - Windows Web Server and Unix Database Server

 

The purpose of the UWC BIRS project is to ensure that flexible reporting is possible throughout the UWC operational systems environment.

 

 

Client:
University of Western Cape

Project:
The purpose of the UWC BIRS project is to ensure that flexible reporting is possible throughout the UWC operational systems environment.

In order to do this the environment must deliver:

  • A UWC data warehouse. Initially this is a 'light' version of the LINK database modeled in such a way that it is suitable for reporting with acceptable performance.
  • A Business Metadata Layer. This layer will house the business logic of the various underlying systems and make flexible reporting a reality.
  • Standard Reports that provide insight into the student administration system.

The provided solution must as far as possible be built using software based on open source principles. As this is an adopted strategy of the university, this is a very important requirement. It is in this light that the UWC BIRS Technical Architecture document endeavours to report on findings and make recommendations in the regard to the best software solution.

Duration:
The architecture component of this solution was completed in 2 months.

Client:
BP Southern Africa

Project:
The purpose of the technical quality assurance of BP's CCAT system is to provide an indication as to whether the application is production ready.
In addition the CCAT system will also be reviewed against BP standards with specific reference to documentation, design, development, testing and migration readiness.

The quality assurance was performed by Q3, who has many years of software development experience, end to end data warehouse experience and more pertinently experience in developing a solution for BP (Cardex Satellites for externals - CSE).
The process was conducted onsite at BP and consisted of interviewing all parties involved, and physically reviewing the specification documentation as well as a code review of the CCAT modules.

The review as well as the recommendations that followed should be taken in the light of an independent opinion of an experienced systems engineers with the focus of ascertaining whether the application is production ready.

Duration:
The review was completed in one month.
