Cornwall Council was looking to transform their IT capability after years of underutilisation. Glue Reply has helped drive this transformation, envisioning and architecting the creation of a modern, digitally-enabled organisation with technology at its heart.
To shorten their time-to-market, companies need to be faster. In order to compete, they also have to become more innovative. Agile methods hold the key to success in both cases. It is then necessary to translate the agile approach into one's own actions, and at the same time to make cultural change to „more agile“ as well.
Microservices based architectures allow for increased scalability and agility when developing and maintaining Customer focused services. Solidsoft Reply employs Microsoft Azure Service Fabric, a distributed systems platform to package, deploy, and manage scalable and reliable Microservices and containers while supporting native cloud development.
In order to deliver integration successfully and systematically, the discipline of integration needs to be managed as a capability. Glue Reply has been helping organisations establish and improve their integration capability.
The integration industry is very mature having seen relatively little technological change in the last 20 years. Cloud has brought change in terms of where data is located, how we connect to it and how vendors offer up technology. This paper looks at many of the recurring themes and challenges that organisations encounter in the modernisation of their integration environment and why a change agenda is important.
Syskoplan Reply developed a consistent
Customer Relationship Management solution for Deutsche Börse. SAP CRM standard software was refined to create a solution specially tailored to the needs of Deutsche Börse that optimally supports the business processes for the specialised areas.
Major organizations rely heavily on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) or packaged applications, which come with pre-configured tested functionality as these are built on leading industry best practices. This paper describes the problem and illustrates an example reference architecture that allows for COTS to stay vanilla.
Automation is intrinsically linked with IT technology, yet in terms of readiness for automation IT organisations find themselves often completely unprepared. The introduction of automation places some important requirements on the IT architecture of an organisation and those that have a clear response to this are the ones who can realise the vision of automation quickly and less painfully.
New technological paradigms such as Cloud, Digital and Big Data present businesses with new opportunities for improved
customer centricity and an opportunity to engage in a more
real-time manner with customers.
Glue Reply supports companies in adapting integration strategies and IT architectures to the changing technological conditions and emerging paradigms such as APIs, Microservices and automation.

The difficulties faced when implementing network services continue to present a challenge to organisations, both from an organisational perspective, as well as from a technical perspective. This document provides direction on how organisations can deal with the challenge of introducing service chaining and deploying critical network services by using the emerging technologies of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV).
Technologies such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) are sparking numerous innovations in the networking landscape. One of them being Telco-over-Cloud, which can be directly applied to the Mobile Telco architecture to remove its current limitations, making it more cost-effective, flexible, powerful and easily scalable for the future.
Organisations can now leverage the emerging technologies of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) for implementing security, as opposed to using traditional methods, and outlines some of the benefits that can be realised.
Glue Reply provided
Debenhams with a future state architecture and technology infrastructure which has enabled them to incrementally grow the SOA technology capability using the Oracle Fusion platform.

Adoption of Technologies such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), Software-Defined Storage (SDS) and Cloud Automation will help evolve the Data Centre into a Cloud based, dynamic, future-proof and self-sustained environment that can scale up and down to address all present and future needs.
Fixed broadband network deployments are moving inexorably to the use of Next Generation Access (NGA) technologies and architectures. These NGA deployments involve building fiber infrastructure increasingly closer to the customer in order to increase the proportion of fiber on the customer’s access connection (Fibre-To-The-Home/Building/Door/Cabinet, ... i.e. FTTx).

Glue Reply was engaged by
AXA UK to support the definition of a SOA approach and roadmap. AXA UK wished to move to a SOA model in an incremental, iterative manner and therefore required from Glue Reply an incremental phased approach as they progressed towards SOA. Glue Reply were engaged in the early stage of the project to provide an assessment of SOA maturity and a roadmap for achieving the required maturity.
It’s clear that the world of technology is becoming critical to nearly all organisations, whilst it is
changing at a pace never seen before. Should the CIO invest in sophisticated infrastructure when
consumers are now carrying it around in their pockets, employees would prefer to use their own
device and there is connectivity all around us?

SaaS, PaaS, and Cloud. Well done! You have lowered the cost of your infrastructure and application landscape... BUT! Is your data secure..? And, can you get at it when you need it..? The adoption of Cloud defence is just beginning.
A capability based planning approach to driving IT delivery from business goals. It is not difficult to find instances of business and IT projects failing to achieve their goals. The reason (or is it excuse?) frequently cited is misalignment or disconnection to organisational strategy.
The explosive impact of Mobile, Social, Big Data and the Cloud as they pervade our daily lives is prompting a rethink of enterprise architectures. In the finance world, too, concepts like Digital Banking and Mobile Payments have been around for some time. But what does rethinking enterprise architectures for financial institutions mean?

Over the last hundred years, utility companies have had to send workers out to gather much of the data needed by them to provide electricity. These workers would read meters, look for broken equipment and measure voltage. Most of the devices used to deliver electricity have not yet been automated and computerised. Today, thanks to ‘smart grids’, utilities can use computer-based remote control and automation to carry out tasks from the power plants and wind farms right through to the electricity consumers in homes and businesses.
