Pepsi Bottling Ventures
Microsoft Integration Platform utilizing BizTalk & SQL Servers




Pepsi Bottling Ventures (PBV) distributes Pepsi-Cola beverage products throughout the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. Many years ago, PBV implemented BizTalk Server 2004 to support various integrations with Trading Partners for purchase orders and invoicing. Over time, these integrations became inefficient and outdated, given the latest capabilities with the 2013 product.

Innovative Architects was engaged as a strategic partner to lead PBV through the process of upgrading to BizTalk Server 2013. IA helped PBV improve several business processes and established a scalable and more consistent integration platform. While working with PBV, IA was able to gain a better understanding of the business. This unique perspective allowed IA to identify and help resolve several gaps and inefficiencies in the existing integration strategy.

Through the success of this initiative, PBV recognized the value of an improved and stabilized solution platform for their business integrations and improved the relationships with their customers and business partners.

Veterans United
Microsoft Services Oriented Architecture Framework using BizTalk, SQL, & Windows Servers




Veterans United provides loan options to former and current United States military personnel. In order to process the loans in an efficient manner, integrations with systems that manage customer, loan products, and business intelligence must be expedient. Veterans had multiple integrations that were independently constructed and managed in a disparate manner which caused inefficiencies in the business. IA was engaged to help improve these integrations as well as consolidate them into a single platform.

IA implemented a BizTalk Server 2013 and business rules engine solution for Veterans United that was both robust and flexible. Business logic was configured through the implementation in a manner that allowed for future extension and configuration. Through a paired programming approach, client staff at Veterans United were trained to support the solution for the long term.

The final solution was a unified means of managing critical system integrations that saved the organization support efforts and provided opportunities to sunset antiquated infrastructure.

CredAbility, Nonprofit Credit Counseling & Education

IA successfully completed the migration and delivered the application by applying agile development practices and a “quick win” approach that demonstrated in a concrete way how the project could succeed.
