In 2017 PLEUS Consulting supported Yareto GmbH in the development of their new independent comparision site for the automotive finance industry.
Yareto is a fintech company that specializes in automotive financing. In 2016 the corporate startup was founded to build a brand new comparision site for the automotive finance industry. The site enables car dealers to compare credit offers in the areas of sales financing and purchase financing. Lenders get access to sales channels they couldn’t serve before.
PLEUS Consulting supported Yareto in setting up a Creative Software Workbench. The Creative Software Workbench aligns technology, processes and people in a way that creates an environment in which high quality digital products can be developed in short time.
The front-ends were developed using modern web technologies such as Java-/Typescript, HTML5, CSS and Angular. For the backend Java Enterprise (JEE) and a Sustainable Service Design approach was utilized to design and build a backend with a high degree of reuse and scalability. The service landscape was established using Domain Driven Design principles. Operations was performed using cloud platforms.
On the technical side, PLEUS Consulting supported the teams as Lead Developer. In the area of agile techniques, PLEUS Consulting supported the development teams as Agile Coach. The combination of those roles worked quite well especially in the phases of seed and growth. With these roles the company received thorough support in the areas of technology and methodology.
The project has shown that with a combination of modern technologies, agile approaches and the right people a very short concept to market cycle can be achieved, creating competitive advantages. This is what the Creative Software Workbench is all about.
The advocates of Service Orientation always pointed out that SOA comprises 50% technology and 50% business. At BiPRO this vision becomes true.
BiPRO is a standardization organization for the insurance industry. BiPRO has members from the entire market including well known insurance companies and agents. By standardizing services at the business level using proven technical standards, BiPRO really takes the SOA idea to the next level. BiPRO conformant services are reusable and highly interoperable. Development is contract first, based on open standards such as WSDL and XSD. It is really impressive to see what BiPRO already achieved.
On 25.6.-26.6. June BiPRO-Day 2014 is going to take place in Düsseldorf Germany.
At the event I am going to give a live coding session. In particular I am going to show how to implement and secure BiPRO services using current Web Service standards such as JAX-WS, SAML, WS-Security and WS-SecureConversation. Attendees can see how the implementation works with JBoss Wildfly, Apache CXF and .NET. Moreover they can take a peek into the future of BiPRO standards in the area of security.
I hope to see you there!
At the upcoming BiPRO day on 11.June 2013
I am going to give a presentation introducing the most important standards in the area of web service security. The aim is to show the purpose of the standards and how they work together to create secure and interoperable message based web service solutions.
