Black and Veatch SOA Integration

Black and Veatch (B&V) is a major construction vendor for AT&T, providing construction services and oversight to over 45,000 annual projects.  These projects build out AT&T’s mobile coverage across the country via activities such as new site construction and technology upgrades to existing sites.  Given the vast number of projects, bi-directional data transfer between AT&T’s construction management application and B&V’s scheduling, procurement, and financial applications becomes a cumbersome manual endeavor, fraught with error and data consistency issues.  In order to effectively manage projects, the business required an automated solution – a SOA-based integration implemented in a performant, reliable, and extensible manner.
