City of Las Vegas and Partner, 3Di

The City of Las Vegas is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Numerous smartphone apps provide visitors with access to hotels, restaurants, transportation, entertainment, etc. However, the City wanted to develop an app that would provide residents with mobile access to city services.

Las Vegas had developed an iOS native app more than a year ago. But as the use of Android-based mobile phones increased, they wanted to port the app to Android. However, they were concerned about maintaining and managing two different application-development platforms. What they needed was a common development platform that could be easily targeted to constantly evolving platforms without losing application user experience. Oracle Mobile Application Framework proved to be best choice.

3Di developed a mobile app for the citizens of Las Vegas that will serve as a platform for:

  • Service requests (potholes, graffiti)
  • Information about city resources (parking, parks, libraries)
  • News about the city
  • Social (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram)


  • Ease of requesting services.
  • Lowered call volume to call centers.
  • Location-based information for citizens and better utilization of city resources.
  • A platform for city and citizens to communicate.
  • A notification platform for citizens.

Bank of Communications, Hong Kong and partner, Team-C

Bank of Communications is the fifth-largest and one of the oldest Banks in China (established 1908). The approval process for mortgage applications was complicated by manual handoffs, limited process visibility, and lack of consistent and sustained communications. This all resulted in significant delays and decreased customer satisfaction. In response, the Bank (along with their partner, Team-C) used Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) and Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) to transition to an integrated mobile and social platform that enabled the relationship managers to track the loan approval process.

As a result:

  • Relationship managers have instant visibility into a customer’s loan application via the iPad app.
  • Fewer incomplete application/missing documentation.
  • Faster, more accurate responses to customer inquires.
  • Push notifications alert approvers to pending tasks, resulting in faster approvals for loans.

The Bank also estimates a 70 percent reduction in development time for new features, as a result of using Oracle MAF and BPM.


Ebrahim K. Kanoo and partner, Rapid Value

Kanoo Daily Rental (KDR) provides car rental and luxury limousine services in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Their existing vehicle check-out/check-in was paper-based, performed manually, and labor-intensive. As a result, Kanoo had to maintain paper records that were difficult to store and track because of the large transaction volumes. The customer wanted a mobile solution that would fix these inherent inefficiencies. RapidValue used Oracle Mobile Application Framework to build an iPad app to automate the vehicle check-out/check-in process, and integrated it with Oracle E-Business Suite R12 rental and leasing module.


  • Reduced transaction time: The mobile app tracks records online, reducing human errors and eliminating paper work
  • Increased efficiency: The app photographs the vehicle and provides a 3D image of vehicle status prior to rental
  • Improved customer satisfaction: Quicker processing of rentals via the mobile app
  • Faster dispute resolution: The mobile app makes easy to compare status of returned vehicle with status prior to rental

Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser’s objective is to enhance its security and risk management posture within the enterprise. Its current solution offered fragmented visibility into users identity profiles and their respective access to information assets across the enterprise. Additionally, the existing solution lacked the ability to rapidly onboard existing enterprise applications into the security framework and drive greater security insight. This resulted in increased operational and administrative costs and also exposed Kaiser to greater security vulnerabilities as well as difficulties in meetings its compliance benchmarks.

Security is a mission-critical requirement for Kaiser’s daily operations. They needed to gain a 360-degree view of its users and their access within the enterprise. To achieve that goal, Kaiser implemented a comprehensive identity management solution that included identity governance, directory services, and an access management suite that was deployed across multiple data centers to ensure 24/7 availability for their most critical applications.

Normally, customers implement such a solution in sequential milestones, with a typical project of this scale extending over a year before completion. Kaiser Permanente took on a comprehensive and parallel approach to implement their solution. The result was an expedited six-month deployment cycle.

The benefits included:

  • Enhanced user productivity by providing employees rapid access to applications to fulfill their daily responsibilities
  • Improved security by enforcing access changes when employees transferred or left the organization
  • Regular monitoring of access to ensure policies were not being violated
  • Enforced dynamic login requirements to prevent compromised access
  • 24/7 availability of mission-critical applications
  • Reduced administrative costs associated with managing passwords and user access to multiple applications via a single interface

Hi-Tech Textiles and partners, 3Di and Kahuna

Hi-Tech is a textile machine and quality-control appliance manufacturer in Asia. The company’s textured yarn quality-monitoring system enjoys a 72 percent market share.


Hi-Tech used an on-premises Microsoft MIS reporting system until 2014, when the system could no longer handle data growth. They wanted to move to the cloud for better scalability and reliability, and needed a cloud platform that could serve their 179 clients.
