DSPS is an independent Middleware Consultancy specialising in many aspects of open Enterprise Application Integration.
Our consultant was recently engaged at a large UK credit reference agency assising in their Java deployment using aspects of WebSphere Enterprise Edition 3.5. Other tools used included TomCat (Jakarta) JServ and iPlanet, each linked with Apache web servers on Solaris platforms.
Peter has also been engaged recently on a Government Gateway related project for Small and Medium Enterprises. This involved WebSphere 3.5.4 serving pages from a workload managed cluster, configured by Peter with multiple models and clones over a pair of IBM S7A machines.
One recent engagement for DSPS was with a major postal service. The engagement involved provision of technical consultancy through their middleware teams. The main technologies involved were WebSphere Application Server 3.5.4, MQ Series, DCE and Encina (TX Series).
Our principal consultant's previous engagement was with a major multinational telecommunications company providing consultancy and support for their DCE and Encina implementation. He also provided UNIX and TCP/IP technical support when called upon so to do. The platforms in use include IBM SP, HP 9000 and various Sun Solaris 2.5 based systems. The work has included configuration of SNA connections from IBM RISC System/6000s to IBM mainframes, the configuration and support of Encina services to communicate with those mainframes. He also supported their HACMP and Service Guard implementations.
Prior to that he successfully completed an assignment at a large international merchant bank, assisting in the preparation and implementation of DCE and DFS solutions. He also provided AIX and TCP/IP technical support when needed across their mostly IBM SP based trading systems.
Our principal consultant was engaged as a consultant in many roles on behalf of a large computer company, including an assignment in a major UK Retail and Wholesale Bank within their Group Operations and Systems Strategy department. This 6 week consultancy concentrated on the application of DCE and DFS technologies to harden their application of Intranet technologies. This was a U.K. based project. Our principal consultant was also pleased to train some of the bank's implementation staff in the use of DCE and DFS to provide hardened Intranet and Internet sites in preparation for their live rollout in a separate engagement within the same banking group.
Our principal consultant recently completed a 4 month assignment on a large government infrastructure program where he was instrumental in the program's adoption of DCE as the base infrastructure for the program. He provided technical and consultative support during the 3 month proof of concept project and provides ongoing education, technical support and consultancy to the program. He finished his activity on the program by providing training courses - five 5 day DCE and DFS administration and two one day designer and management overview classes. The program will now apply DCE and DFS technology as key infrastructure components to the largest government infrastructure project in which IBM worldwide is currently involved.
Our consultant recently spent 3 days in Paris with Dassault System, helping them adopt and support DCE and DFS technologies over which their customers may now run CATIA. With a view to this, our consultant visited a UK Defence contractor, in Lancashire, to do a feasibility study looking at replacing their NIS and NFS served CATIA workstation estate with DCE and DFS servers.
Our consultant has also worked on Secure Single Signon Projects, using DCE as a base, and provided support and consultancy for other DCE projects. Our consultant is about to use DCE and DFS to provide improved security and availability to a web site for one customer. This strengthens the server, and rounds off our skills in web serving having set up DNS, Web Servers, sendmail and Majordomo mailing list management softwarwe. – less–ZoomInfo
