Multi-tenant e-invoicing platform (Routty Express)

Routty had already for many years their Routty AR/AP application which is a single-tenant application which routes incoming and outgoing invoices from and to many different e-invoicing and ERP system or networks like Peppol and SAP. 

Setting up this application for new customers entailed settings up the infrastructure and configuring the system from scratch. This meant that the onboarding of new customer took a lot of time.

Improved lead generators

The previous lead generators of this Insurance Company were built using a different technology stack than the company uses today. These lead generators were also not fully integrated with their current systems.

We created new lead generators using an up to date front end stack and the new design system. On the backend side, we created a Backend-For-Frontend on top of the existing core systems.

A platform that facilitates playing hardware arcade games through your browser

Elaut wanted to build an online gaming platform for arcade halls. This platform allows the customers of these arcade halls to also play on physical arcade machine through a website by providing a real-time video stream of the machine and allowing the users to control the movements of the machine.

Because latency is a critical component of this platform. Each of the machines is linked to a controller. While a user is playing a game, we setup a direct peer-to-peer connection between the website running in the browser of the user and this controller. This ensures that video frames are sent from the machine controller, which is linked to the camera of the machine, directly to the user. This allows us to provide a low latency (< 150 ms) video stream to the user.

Application for Barco to monitor and configure their medical monitors

Barco sells high quality, medical imaging displays to hospitals. It is critical that these displays are calibrated frequently to ensure the quality of the display. Together with Barco, we created a solution which periodically will remotely check the calibration of the display and if needed a remote recalibration of the display is done. This is achieved through communication between the AWS cloud (IoT Core) and the computer connected to the display.

Improving time to market and User Experience for Cyclis

This innovative and very successful bicycle leasing scale-up was working with an all-encompassing ERP/CRM package. In addition to basic ERP and CRM functionalities, this system was also used as a platform for the company website and various customer portals.
This approach resulted in a number of undesirable limitations, especially in terms of end-user experience.

The ERP/CRM system had been heavily customized and expanded to the specific wishes of Cyclis. Due to ever-growing and larger customizations, the workload for building and maintaining this system also increased, with a negative impact on growth opportunities and time to market as a result.
Our solution was a Middleware and BFF that leveraged the existing functionality and data in the existing system. This ensured that the internal working of Cyclis could remain the same while the new customer facing applications could be built and scaled without the limitations of the existing system.

Enabling voice commands for Daikin air conditioning systems

Daikin already had a mobile application through which their customers could control the configuration of their air conditioning systems. However, Daikin wanted to also enable voice-controlled configuration of their systems to further improve the experience for their users.

We extended the functionality in the existing application so it can easily integrate with Amazon Alexa and Google Home. This allowed us to capture voice commands which would be translated into technical machine commands that were sent to the Air-Conditioning systems.

Cronos Cloud Conference

Based on our low level experience with the serverless technology on AWS, we decided to share our insights and learning around the technology including the business value it can bring for both start and scale-ups and enterprises. 
This talk also included our experience in FinOps.

As we for all of our project had to create a financial estimation of the cloud cost, we already had a lot of experience in the complex cost calculation for serverless environments. This in combination with the continues evolutions in Cloud services we are often continuously improving our solutions, also in on a financial side.

A HIPAA compliant platform for Epilog to analyse brain scans

Epilog wanted to build a platform which allows medical practitioners to upload the raw data acquired from an EEG scan, then receive a 3D patient-specific source localization, use a concise online report and 3D-viewer gained with automated spike detection. This analysis results in valuable insights in the preoperative evaluation for refractory epilepsy.

To be able to build this HIPAA compliant platform in a cost efficient way, we have leveraged serverless technology to build this solution on top of HIPAA eligible services. Allowing Epilog to target both the European and American market.

Barco Demetra, a HIPAA compliant platform for Barco to support their new Dermoscopy device

Barco had been working on a new digital advanced solution to help dermatologists to improve their diagnosis on skin diseases. 
By providing a new solution called Demetra that creates high-quality images and storing these images securely on the cloud, a dermatologist can get an overview on the progress of the disease over multiple months or years.

We helped Barco with our AWS knowledge to build this HIPAA compliant solution. By leveraging the cloud and more specifically serverless technology, we were able to build this solution on top of HIPAA eligible services. This way we were able to focus on creating business value. Resulting in being able to deliver this HIPAA compliant solution within 9 months.

A Telematics Insurance platform for Pioneer to capture and score telematics data from IoT devices

Pioneer wanted to create a Telematics Insurance platform for the EU and US market. Pioneer was manufacturing devices which would be installed in the car of the users of the platform to capture their driving behavior. 
We proposed to work with high-level AWS services. To show Pioneer these AWS services like IoT Core, Lambda, DynamoDB and Step Function would be able to cover their scaling need in a cost efficient way, we created a Proof of Concept and performance tests.

Within 3 months time, we were able to create this PoC from scratch and the platform was able to ingest 25.800 trips in one hour, enrich them within 30 seconds after the trip and make that data available through a portal and mobile application.

AWS-based serverless caching and queuing layer to abstract away the intermittent availability of legacy backend services.

For specific reasons, the on premises systems of this Car Manufacturer were not available outside of office hours. We have created a reverse proxy and caching layer built on top of AWS API Gateway, Lambda and DynamoDB. This low cost and maintenance solution ensured that customer facing application would be available all the time even when on premises systems were not available.

Design and implementation of a Serverless middleware for Philips

Philips has a product information management system in which all their product information is stored and maintained. The PIM system contains both marketing and technical information about the products they sell. This information needs to be shared with many different channels on which product information is shown like the Philips website, Amazon.com, leaflet rendering, …

Philips needed an event driven and highly scalable middleware to publish this product content to the different channels in near real-time.
With the existing middleware, they were only able to see product changes done in the PIM appear on the channels after several hours and full data exports took more than a week to complete.

Creation of the AWS Lambda Jenkins plugin

Back in 2015, not a lot of developer tools supported AWS Lambda. For this reason we have created the AWS Lambda Jenkins plugin to ensure we were able to create CI/CD pipelines in Jenkins for Lambda deployments. Although we ourselves have moved to a more IaC - first deployment strategy using AWS SAM, this plugin is still mentioned on the dashboard page of AWS Lambda in the AWS Console under developer resources.

First Lambda function in production

Although AWS Lambda was still in preview, we already used the service for a small process in one of our projects.

This small background process would generate waveforms based on audio files.
