The Ibiza island Counsil (Consell Insular d’Eivissa) is currently the highest governing institution on this Spanish island, part of the Balearic Island.
The Consell sought to provide the administration with an interoperability tool with the different administrations of the Balearic Islands and to use in a coordinated a repository of services and processes, both for new and existing systems.
For this, it requests the development of an SOA Interoperability Platform.
The development project of the Interoperability Platform of the Consell Insular d’Ibiza (framed in the Hanibal plan) has involved the consultancy, development, implementation and implementation of an SOA platform based on the WSO2, Liferay and Alfresco suite which allows the different administrations of the Balearic Islands to interact effectively and use the new and existing systems in a coordinated manner.
The existence of this platform guarantees, for any scenario and regardless of the selected provider, the maximum use of functionality, through the use of an authentic repository of services and processes, reusable between different administrations, and accessible, in a secure manner, by any Administration. Public authorized that has integration and connection to the SARA network.
The platform is based on the use of open source components of appropriate maturity, with support from its original developers (Enterprise Editions), which allows the full exploitation of its functionalities while guaranteeing its correct performance in High Availability .
Development of an SOA Interoperability Platform for the Consell Insular d’Ibiza based on:
- The service bus: WSO2.
- The document manager: Alfresco.
- The portal system: Liferay.
- The suite to generate reports: Jasper Reports.
- Application monitoring: Hyperic.
We must emphasize that the total orientation to services has allowed to publish the procedures as services, with their own indicators of status and levels of services (SLAS), until consolidating a Data Model, which acts as a layer of abstraction, by means of Data Services according to the SOA standards.
The technological environment is Liferay, Intalio, WSO2, Alfresco and J2EE.
