 PCS/EDI message Integration with POMS

    Technical Environment: 3-tier Architecture, JSF-based User Interface, EJB2.1

Type of Project/Services (G2G, G2C, G2B, G2E): It is a G2G & G2B project

           Impact of the project:

Being one of the oldest ports of the country, KDS has got a number of legacy systems making information integration quite difficult. Age old processes required modernization which was boosted by the requirement of message based interaction with stakeholder through Port Community System of Indian Port Association. It is interesting to note that the performance of KoPT-KDS has been one of first few ports in terms of PCS-based service delivery. Online operational data capture using campus wide network has improved promptness as well as transparency of the services. The POMS system has also enhanced the uniformity of business standards in terms of data entity as well as business procedures due to intercommunication and re-usage of the ICT components between HDC and KDS.
