Participate in Oracle Customer Programs
TigerIT is a leading software company in Bangladesh, providing online business applications, strategic technology consulting services, and identification IT systems and hardware such as RFID wristbands. The company is internationally renowned for its biometrics applications and is a world leader in automated fingerprint identification systems (AFIS).
In 2007, TigerIT developed the software package for an AFIS identification and voter registration system for the 2008 Bangladesh general election. The system was used by the Bangladesh Army and the Bangladesh Election Commission (BEC) to create an error-free voter roll. TigerIT developed 500 identity management servers and equipped more than 12,000 laptop computers with the registration software for use by around 20,000 personnel.
In 2010, TigerIT returned to the BEC to upgrade the registration system by including Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 Full Rack, Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, and Oracle WebLogic Server to further consolidate up to 100 million citizens’ identification data and improve security and system management capabilities.
After the success of the BEC project, TigerIT has supplied similar Oracle SOA-based solutions for other initiatives, including Bangladesh driving licenses, Cambodia’s national ID scheme, and Nepal’s machine-readable passport project.
TigerIT chose Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Exadata Database Machine, and Oracle WebLogic Server as the company believed it would provide the fastest, and most reliable and scalable infrastructure for its voter identification and registration system.
“In terms of speed, availability, backup, security, and business intelligence capabilities, Oracle is the world leader,” said A. H. M. Khan Sohel, IT System Consultant for Preparation of Electoral Roll with Photographs, United Nations Development Programme, and Bangladesh Election Commission (PERP, UNDP & BEC). “It was a logical choice for us to select Oracle Exadata and Oracle SOA Suite to develop a database of this size and complexity.
“Oracle Exadata Database Machine is the most powerful fully configured database machine available. With 14 storage servers and eight database servers it was more than able to underpin our biometric registration voter system and was fast and simple to deploy—we implemented the entire system in just a three weeks rather than in a few months, which is how long previous systems have taken to deploy.”
