Customer

Pixco, a Belgian media production services company, has worked on a generic media asset management system used by many clients, such as Toyota-Lexus.

Challenge

The customer needed to develop an information management solution for the Toyota-Lexus company. This solution should enable Toyota-Lexus employees to manage content from everywhere, including the possibility to create content, upload/download and delete personal files (located on an FTP server) using HTTP protocol by means of a user-friendly Flex-based interface.

Solution

The extensive experience of our team in Flex development convinced the customer to choose OCSICO as an outsourcing partner for the creation of a Web File Sharing module for its DAM platform. The OCSICO team developed the solution’s business logic, delivered web service and web client applications, and performed extensive testing to ensure the smooth system usage.

The Web File Sharing module for the customer’s DAM platform had to act as a transparent layer on top of the existing FTP Server. It enabled the user to log on to the FTP server without needing to enter access credentials, upload and download through the HTTP connection without usage of an FTP server. This solution was specifically designed for transferring small and medium-size files (up to 50 MB).

The module had to be incorporated into the existing framework application and work with the username/password existing in the main application. The developed solution could be integrated into the home page or into the administration panel depending on the customer’s needs. Moreover, it could work in a stand-alone mode.

Results

The result of the joint work between the customer’s and OCSICO’s teams was a successful delivery and integration of the developed application.
