Rebate Management System for SOA Environment
Project Lead: Bill Chapman, CTO
Project Description: Rebate Management System was conceived as a part of Avnet's enterprisewide SOA. The solution was developed using Fair Isaac's Blaze Advisor business rules management solution, with Avnet creating Java EJB services to attach it to Avnet's SOA. Avnet used Web services, Oracle Stored Procedures, and JMS messages to call the business rules engine and to process massive amounts of Oracle-based data. This provided the latest rebate information and real-time monitoring for customers against dynamic sales goals. Avnet created the rules framework with reusable components, establishing the scope of knowledge and logic foundation. It used WebMethodsand Informatica software as the middleware layers to integrate ARMS with more than 10 systems, including order management, invoicing, CRM, ERP, and HR.
