Abstract: In this paper we discuss a case study for the UK Police IT Organisation (PITO) on using a model-based approach to verifying web service composition interactions for a coordinated service-oriented architecture. The move towards implementing web service compositions by multiple interested parties as a form of distributed system architecture promotes the ability to support 1) early verification of service implementations against design specifications and 2) that compositions are built with compatible interfaces for differing scenarios in such a collaborative environment…






Introduction: Our case study is taken from a national development currently underway by the Police IT Organisation (PITO) in the United Kingdom. PITO provides information technology and communication systems to the police service and criminal justice organisations in the UK. PITO’s vision is “to be a trusted and valued partner in the delivery and operation of information and communication solutions to meet the needs of the police service and its partners and stakeholders”. In this way, one of the highest priorities for PITO is its ability to provide secure, reliable, and available services on demand and to provide highly accurate information as a part of the processes carried out to fulfill service requests…

Case Study for Glory Foods

Introduction: Sitting at his desk in the Columbus, Ohio-based, headquarters office of Glory Foods Inc., Mr. Michael Brown, Director of Agribusiness Development, is making plans for his annual trip south to visit with producers, suppliers, and retailers. For Mr. Brown, his trek down south is one of the year’s highlights. Despite the often hot temperatures and long driving distances between appointments, Mr. Brown is always anxious to meet with colleagues in the field, to find out what issues they are all talking about, and to learn the latest industry trends and practices.






Though Mr. Brown’s sentiments are consistent with Glory Foods Inc.’s vision of marketing quality foods, and improving economic opportunities for the communities where they operate, Mr. Brown finds himself each year having to ponder how to best position Glory Foods Inc. and its products for competing in the ever changing global marketplace. From Mr. Brown’s perspective, the overriding question is: How does Glory Foods continue to meet the growing demads of various stakeholders in its supply chain, while both honoring the firm’s commitment to linking urban consumers with small- and medium-sized farm enterprises and producer cooperatives, and promoting positive local development in the places where it operates?

Case Study of Turkish Petroleum

Turkish Petroleum Corporation is truly a global company with a distributed workforce. The country’s national oil company, Turkish Petroleum has thousands of employees working abroad sourcing for petroleum. They work ‘round the clock to discover Turkey’s oil and natural gas potential and bring it to market.






With more than 4,000 employees in Turkey and more scattered in branch offices, the company needed to reduce their remote workers’ phone bills and shrink high roaming charges. They also wanted to give employees the same access to the IP-phone system as their colleagues in the home office so they, too, could use Instant Messaging, VoIP, realtime video and all the productivityboosting applications available with their SIP based Avaya PBX.

Case Study about Gold Fields Exploration

The need: The gold mining industry faces increased demand, shrinking reserves, and fewer quality exploration targets in increasingly higher risk regions. Global companies like Gold Fields constantly face pressures to grow production through access to new projects. Therefore, identifying new opportunities ahead of the competition is key and Gold Fields uses all available intelligence at its disposal to this end.



Solution: In the noise of a deluge of available information, tactics are needed to identify and read signals. The more robust the analytical and filtering systems, the more advantageous it is to trawl large data sets. Combining MineSearch information with their own internal intelligence and GIS systems, Gold Fields is tapping into the enhanced insights gained from analyzing large and ever-growing pools of information.

Case Study for Neftex Petroleum Consultants Ltd

Transformation – sometimes it takes seconds, and sometimes it takes hundreds of millions of years. The transformation of our earth over the last 600 million years of its 4.5 billion year history would have been spectacular to see – supercontinents breaking up; tectonic plates drifting, crashing, and tossing up mountain ranges towards the skies; ice ages coming and going; massive volcanic events; sea level rising and falling; and explosions of life followed by mass extinction events.



The ground under our feet is the historical record that geoscientists analyze to reconstruct this history – and FME® is an invaluable tool for one such group of scientists. Neftex Petroleum Consultants Ltd., based in the U.K., specializes in the collation, integration, and interpretation of large – often global – geoscience datasets, mapping the layers under the Earth’s surface that represent these major historical events…
