Another customer success story and another amazing cake! Yesterday we celebrated the launch of the Document Verification Service at ComSuper. This was the first service delivered on ComSuper’s new Oracle Service Bus platform and is hopefully the first of many.
The DVS is managed by the Attorney-General’s Department and is one of the key initiatives of the Council of Australian Governments’ National Identity Security Strategy. ComSuper checks the information on identity credentials against the records of the issuing agency in real time to inform decisions that rely upon the confirmation of a person’s identity and is a key tool to eliminate use of fraudulent identities.
The really interesting part of this project (at least from a technical point of view) is that there was originally a different web service being offered to ComSuper, which was changed half way through the project. Thankfully with OSB, the team was able to map the old service to the new one and not have to change any of their internal applications. This saved considerable re-write within the organisation.
We hope to put up a blog post soon detailing how the team was able to work with this changing remote service and how they dealt with the non-standard policy required for connection. Stay tuned to our blog for more info.
And without further ado, here are the pictures of the morning tea:
