Lien BOT implementation for a major insurance company

We implemented a Chat BOT for a major midwestern insurance company. The following link describes the use case and the benefits of having a conversational Chat BOT to help improve customer service. The Lien BOT was developed using Microsoft BOT framework version 4.7 and uses dynamic cards, carousels, triggers, interrupts and hero cards.

Azure Kubernetes Services and Ingress Controller for hosting Controller HMI in the cloud.

We recently completed an internet of things (iot) project that allowed users to provision a controller using HMI (Human Machine Interface) that was hosted within a Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) cluster. This allowed engineers to setup a controller before they went to the field to configure it. The controller HMI in the cloud was connected using Azure iot hub to on premise controller hardware that contained a PostgreSQL database. The controller PostgreSQL database in the controller hardware was the master, which would keep data in a remote PostgreSQL cloud database via events. More details can be found here.

Sending files to Azure Blob Storage from BizTalk Server 2020

Until BizTalk 2016, there was no direct way to communicate with Azure Blob storage to send files. Hence, we had to use WCF-WebHttp adapter to send files to the blob storage. It also required us to write a custom pipeline component to strip the filename from the file path (example – “file.txt” from “c:\files\file.txt” ) before sending it to Azure Blob storage else the file name in Azure blob storage would end up being “c:\files\file.txt” instead of just “file.txt”. However, BizTalk Server 2020 comes in with a built in Azure Blob Storage adapter using which you can directly communicate with the blob storage. This also eliminates the need for a custom pipeline.

EDI and AS2 implementation for B2B in the cloud using Azure Logic Apps and Integration Accounts

We implemented a cloud only EDI solution for a customer looking for a B2B solution to connect to their trading partners and shippers. The solution allowed the customer to quickly deploy an EDI AS2 transactions without having to invest in on premise infrastructure or software licenses. Instead, we used cloud hosted integration accounts and logic apps, so the customer only has to pay for what they use based on a subscription model.

Developing Chat Bots using Microsoft BOT framework

We built a chat bot for our customer that allows web site visitors to ask questions related to quality standards for hospitals and medical clinics. The chat bot would respond with answers or ask additional questions. If an answer could not be found, the chat bot asks the user to enter contact information and routes the transcript of the conversation to an internal rep who can follow up with answers to the customer questions.
