Neuron ESB, an application, service and workflow integration platform, announced today its selection by Oldcastle Precast, the leading manufacturer of concrete and plastic products for North American infrastructure projects, to enable real-time transaction processing in its operations and management systems. Neuron ESB is a robust enterprise service bus optimized for .NET development, capitalizing on a Microsoft environment to enhance Oldcastle Precast’s cloud-based services and applications.

As part of a global enterprise, Oldcastle Precast’s systems handle a broad range of data such as vendor and finance records, Active Directory employee documents and payroll; Neuron ESB’s live data management complements the scheduled data processes currently moving through the company’s SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) platform.

“Neuron ESB moves this data between internal and external systems on a continuous basis, something SSIS was just not designed to do,” said Bryan Meier, Development Manager, Oldcastle Precast. “Its connectors add significant depth to our capabilities, keeping our team from having to code connections manually. We’re currently evolving to NetSuite ERP, and recognize that the Neuron ESB Connector for NetSuite will help us easily connect to third-party applications that don’t offer integrated NetSuite connectivity.”

Neuron ESB’s connector strategy simplifies Oldcastle Precast’s data transactions with most major enterprise applications, either through pre-integrated custom connectors or others that are easy to build based on .NET technology. Options include generic REST or SOAP connectors, as well as others that are specifically designed and validated for applications such as Active Directory or NetSuite.

“Neuron ESB complements Oldcastle Precast’s current operations by adding more tightly integrated communications – optimized for enterprise applications like NetSuite and keeping the company poised for flexibility and growth in data handling,” said Marty Wasznicky, Vice President, Neuron ESB. “By transforming data without the need for add-ons, third-party connectors or outside consultants, Neuron ESB is ideally suited to support Oldcastle Precast with fast, reactive data transactions.”
