Polish Transport Company Integrates Heterogeneous Systems With WSO2 Enterprise Middleware to Drive Efficient Web-Based Communications

New case study explores how Web-based system built by WSO2 partner OPITZ CONSULTING Polska enables timely communications with transportation services employees serving 1 million-plus passengers

Mountain View, CA – February 29, 2016 – WSO2 today announced that Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Komunikacyjne S.A. Kraków (MPK Kraków), Kraków’s municipal transport service provider, has modernized its communications with a real-time information delivery system built on WSO2 middleware. The Information System for Vehicle Drivers (System Informacji dla Prowadzących or SIDP) was implemented by WSO2 partner OPITZ CONSULTING Polska as the first step in introducing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) across MPK Kraków. The implementation is outlined in a new case study from WSO2, which can be downloaded at https://wso2.com/casestudies/opitz-uses-wso2-to-enhance-mpk-krakow-s-web-based-information-system-for-efficient-service-delivery.

Integrating Systems via a Service-Oriented Architecture

Each day, more than 2,200 MPK Kraków employees serve 1 million-plus passengers by operating 145 bus lines and 27 tram lines across the city. To equip the drivers with up-to-the-minute, accurate and easily accessible communications, MPK Kraków turned to OPITZ, a leading project specialist for custom-built applications.

The case study examines how OPITZ implemented a common communication platform across MPK Kraków, using WSO2’s integration platform as the central component of the system architecture. Key topics it explores are:

  • The advantages of introducing common SOA standards, patterns and best practices to MPK Kraków’s IT infrastructure.
  • How WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB) acts as the intermediary between the Web portal and various backend systems.
  • The role of WSO2 Data Services Server (WSO2 DSS) in helping WSO2 ESB to route database-related traffic.

“As our mode of communication improved, so did the flow of operations,” stated Mariusz Wawak, IT director at MPK Kraków. “We were able to improve both speed and control over the flow of information, and thanks to robust automation, better manage our core services. The SIDP system has made our company more lean, employee-focused and overall, more efficient.”

“As one of Poland’s key public service providers, MPK Kraków relies on efficient and effective communications across Kraków’s public transportation infrastructure to optimize operations and better serve passengers,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder, CEO and chief architect. “We are thrilled by the success of OPITZ CONSULTING Polska in using WSO2 enterprise middleware to integrate MPK Kraków’s legacy software and create a real-time information system. It highlights the value of an open source, open standards approach to creating a modern connected enterprise system.”
