Untangling a spaghetti architecture
At times, the job of an IT consultant can be a little abstract: after you’ve delivered a service, you don’t always see honor from it. Therefor, you might not have a clue how your service influences the customer. Where’s the satisfaction in that?! We wanted to change this and came up with something fun.
Our client came to visit
We asked our client Bureau Zuidema to drop by and tell our integration services consultants how they were supported by their services. Bureau Zuidema immediately agreed and Rosalie Geluk and Ingrid de Vries – Besselink came to visit and shared the results of our work.
What is Bureau Zuidema?
Bureau Zuidema is a training and consultancy agency that aims to develop positive influencing skills in as many people as possible. Both in the Netherlands ánd internationally, and by constructing the best training program for each attendee. With custom made programs, each attendee gains an experience in which he or she learns new behavior and truly experiences its effect.
What was the problem?
To organize the training programs, Bureau Zuidema received and sent data via various systems. These systems were connected via various interfaces, resulting in a spaghetti architecture. This caused unnecessary complicated processes, and data to be not up to date. Therefore, these processes came with unnecessary manual labor. The company decided this had to change, and made room to make changes to the underlying IT system.
We were asked to support Bureau Zuidema with untangling its spaghetti architecture, and we were of course happy to do so!
Data is processed faster
We implemented our integration platform inQdo connect. inQdo connect translates messages from systems and applications into a standard format, making it ‘readable’ for all connected systems and applications. The result: data can be processed much faster.
And, what’s next?
With the implementation of inQdo connect, Bureau Zuidema’s employees gained a lot of time: they no longer have to manually change and insert data. Now, they can aim at developing their training programs and their organization’s growth.
