Case Studies: Technoforte’s Successful Assignments in Outsourced Product Development

VDEM

Vehicle Defect Entry Management (VDEM) is an application built to help an automobile manufacturing factory to transition from recording defects on paper to an efficient, user-friendly mobile application. Technoforte’s team executed the project from the ideation phase to full fledged integration into operational procedures.

The VDEM application ensured that increased accuracy of factory operations was achieved by offering options for various inspection processes. The user is able to scan vehicle QR codes and record any defect found with the corresponding image and description. The quality checking process is also standardized by providing a checklist, and preventing defect outflow.

Deploying VDEM allowed the automobile manufacturer to avail the following benefits:

  • Real time feedback on “Vehicle Quality” and manage “Defect history”
  • Defect “Outflow Prevention” to subsequent processes
  • Mobile Application Assisted Defect recording
  • Defect Classification, Prioritization & Repair
  • Real time defect data analysis
  • Reduced manpower

VDEM is a native application that can be used on iOS, Android and Windows devices. The cross-platform native UI is built on Xamarin.forms, with a web UI rendered using React JS. The application server is built with .NET core, and the API in the REST architectural style. The database is hosted on the SQL server.

VDEM has been implemented for Toyota, India, and is now being rolled out to multiple Toyota affiliates across the Asia Pacific region.

Device Management Server and Client

The Device Management Server and Client is a system management application programming interface that can connect and validate devices on the field for Demographic and Biometric Data Collection for ID Systems like MOSIP. It facilitates communication between the server and its client devices, and maintains security.

It offers the capability to issue commands to the end device for registration and de-registration of the device (Device Keys), Security Key Dissemination and Security Key Rotation collect device information to maintain, manage, support and upgrade a device remotely, and create a central repository of all the approved devices from the device provider. Technoforte’s device management server and client ensures the safe storage of keys using a hardware security module (HSM). These keys are used to issue the device certificate upon registration. It can also push updates from the server to the client devices.

On the client’s side it acts as the interface that connects the device with the respective management server. The communication between the management server and its clients is designed with scalability, robustness, performance and security.

Technoforte ensures that all communication to the server and from the server follows the below properties:

  1.  The management client detects the devices in a plug-and-play model.
  2.  All key rotations are triggered from the server.
  3. Detects if it’s speaking to the right management server.
  4.  All upgrades are verifiable, and downgrades of software are not permitted.
  5.  Ensures any APIs are not exposed when capturing biometrics
  6.  The management server cannot trigger a capture request.
  7.  No logging of biometric data is allowed. (Both in the encrypted and unencrypted format)

 

The technology stack used for developing Management Server and Client can be explained as follows:

MOSIP

MOSIP helps governments and organizations implement digital identity infrastructure to build their own identity systems and databases. The modular nature of the application allows for each feature to be handled as a separate plug and play service, offering a high degree of flexibility. We utilize the MOSIP infrastructure to offer authentication and E-KYC services, generating virtual IDs for national identity systems, with demographic data normalization and a hotlisting feature to prevent identity theft.

Technoforte is a Key Product Development Partner for MOSIP right from the inception days of MOSIP in the year 2018. Technoforte’s area of expertise encompasses Project Management, Product Conceptualization, Development, Manual and Automation Testing, DevSecOps and Dissemination.

MOSIP Product is built on the microservices architecture means the size and complexity of MOSIP does not present an obstacle during delivery. The Kubernetes based Docker orchestration and dockerized deployments saves a lot of storage, time and processing power. Our full scale DevSecOps functions enable Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) meaning incremental changes in code can be made reliably and frequently.

GovStack

Technoforte has been a development partner for the ID Building Block in the prestigious GovStack project, an International Telecom Union, Geneva (ITU)initiative in providing end to end integrated and working Building Blocks for digital governance. Technoforte was selected as the vendor of choice after participating in an elaborate Tendering and RFP process as per the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM) guidelines. Their primary aim is to facilitate countries in commencing their digital transformation journey by adopting, deploying, and expanding digital government services. 

By utilizing the digital “building blocks” methodology, governments can easily create or modify their digital platforms, services, and applications while simplifying cost, time, and resource requirements. These building blocks encompass software code, platforms, and interoperable applications that not only work seamlessly together but also offer essential digital services at scale, making them adaptable for various use cases and contexts.

A Building Block is composed of domain-driven microservices, modeled as closely as possible on existing roles and processes. Data models and APIs are described in a lightweight manner that’s human-readable, allowing them to be easily and quickly understood and validated.

The API is built using a representational state transfer (REST) software architectural style and described in Open API 3 standard using YAML (a human-readable data-serialization language). Request and response body is in JSON (lightweight data-interchange format).

Some of the building blocks are briefly explained as follows:

Consent: Deals with transparency on data usage, enabling services for individuals to approve the use of their personal data by defining the principles, functions, and architecture of an information system.

Digital Registries: Provides the capability to capture, store, search, distribute, and present data with zero or minimal need for software development. It also maintains and reports logs of all operations taking place on database schemas and data.

Identity: Creates, manages, and uses a digital foundational identity, interfacing with other building blocks to deliver identification services and manage lifecycle of foundational identities.

Information Mediation: Provides a gateway for exchange of data and services among GovStack Building Blocks through open-API rest-based interfaces to ensure interoperability and implementation of standards.

Other building blocks include messaging, payments, registration, scheduler, workflow and so on. Learn more about GovStack here.
