Neuron ESB, an application, service and workflow integration platform, announced today its selection by Kamstrup, the world-leading supplier of intelligent energy and water metering solutions, as the platform to modernize legacy systems for global growth. Neuron ESB is a robust enterprise service bus optimized for .NET development, enabling Kamstrup’s infrastructure with more flexible systems for communication, connection, engagement and collaboration. Neuron ESB, based on the familiar .NET framework, now simplifies Kamstrup’s point-to-point architectures to enable a fast, cohesive approach to development and expansion. A case study highlighting Kamstrup’s story is now available.
“Neuron ESB supports our stated vision to use the most advanced technologies to be the best at what we do. We’re now able to create, adapt, and integrate services much more quickly, remaining flexible to meet our customer needs,” said Kim Frederiksen, Enterprise Solutions Architect, Kamstrup. “Flexibility is critical, as intelligent energy solutions may have millions of customizations depending on the dramatic variations in geographic, physical or regulatory needs. It’s a volatile and growing industry, driving our mandate to become more agile and create a growth-oriented infrastructure.”
Data islands are eliminated by modernizing Kamstrup’s existing point-to-point environment, facilitating reuse of data and functionality between applications. Neuron ESB also solves longevity constraints on selected Kamstrup infrastructure applications approaching end-of-life within the next five to eight years; this is essential to maintaining the organization’s rapid growth fueled by worldwide attention on energy conservation and sustainability.
“Kamstrup’s solutions are resonating in the market, demonstrated by its strong growth in revenue and employee count. Neuron ESB aligns well with the global opportunity they are facing, helping poise the firm to play an even stronger role in the future of intelligent energy metering,” said Marty Wasznicky, Vice President, Neuron ESB. “By reducing complexity as well as eliminating risk associated with implementing future enterprise applications, systems applications are simplified for long-term operations and market leadership.”
Based on the success of its initial deployment, Kamstrup is now using Neuron ESB as a key integration platform on its newly-constructed water factory in Denmark. It’s a fast-moving environment where development needs are evolving rapidly, yet Neuron ESB is readily enabling integration between systems. “All of the data communication is being handled by Neuron ESB, and we are well-positioned to fuel our vision for growth, internally and at our many projects and sites across the globe,” said Frederiksen.
