Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government (DOE): Housing Grants System
Housing Grants System
A flexible and responsive business application
To enable more efficient management of seventeen complex housing grants schemes, the Department recognised that they needed one common system. This would enable common payment processing and would minimise the training of new users to support the different schemes.
In order to realise their objectives, the Department chose Fujitsu to help them develop the new Housing Grants system. Fujitsu designed a solution to achieve the department's vision to create business components as the basis for building flexible and responsive business applications - utilising the core principles of Naked Object Architecture.
The solution consisted of:
- A web-enabled front-end application developed using Java;
- Middleware COM objects developed using Visual Basic;
- An interface to an SQL Server database back end;
- Reports developed using Crystal Reports Objects and Designer and deployed on Crystal Enterprise Edition.
