Early 2014, Home Office (UK Ministry of Interior) decided to significantly update and refresh legacy systems to modernize the Immigration Platform Technologies (IPT).
The Immigration Platform (IP) is a very sensitive piece of software, contributing to UK Visa issuing for Tourism, Worker, Student, Asylum, etc. at a worldwide scale.

The Immigration Platform was upgraded with the development and test of a Shared Service Bus (SSB) and a Common Data Platform (CDP)  to support communication between Immigration and Enforcement systems.

The SSB supports communication between various immigration and enforcement systems, whilst the CDP creates a single and consistent view of immigration and related data, with the aim of reducing data inconsistency issues and shutting down legacy system once their data is transferred to the CDP. All services are hosted in the Cloud, using the Skyscape Cloud Services.

ActiveEon, as a software editor, provides its cutting edge solution ProActive Workflows and Scheduling to orchestrate and fully automate Data Integration in the Cloud. ActiveEon workflows run in fully automatic mode up to every 5 minutes, ensuring fully consistent data integration, even in the presence of pitfall and unexpected events. Furthermore, ActiveEon orchestrates Talend solutions for Data Integration. The Programme also uses NETbuilder services for design, creation, support and management of the full lifecycle of environments.

Developments were conducted using the agile methodology. Not only Agile in the software development methods, but also agile up to the technology selection and procurement of software providers, allowing to achieve fast delivery together with significant savings. As such, the project represents a major achievement in agile delivery at scale for UK government.
