New Discovery service provides easy access to all data to improve online customer experiences

The Challenge

The National Archives had developed a number of homegrown systems to improve the accessibility and maintenance of its growing collection. Eventually they decided to move to a service oriented architecture framework to reduce maintenance costs and provide for flexibility to add future services.

The Solution

Neuron ESB is an enterprise service bus designed to simplify messaging, system integration and web service enablement. Neuron ESB supports The National Archives .NET environment, and has a strong API to provide open access to all data for all users.

The Benefit

  • Provides scalability to support future growth of the organization’s architecture
  • Delivers critical data in real time to business units within The National Archives
  • Simplifies IT infrastructure and reduces maintenance costs
  • Improves online customer experiences, including educational and e-commerce services
