About GLU.Ware™

So how does GLU.Ware work?

Born in Emerging Markets

GLU.Ware™ is an Integration Platform that is built for the Emerging Markets. It brings systems together to create value faster by cutting cost, simplifying, and accelerating integration projects. GLU.Ware is fundamentally about enabling Business Agility.

Software as a Service

GLU.Ware™ solves the cost and time to market challenges of traditional systems integration approaches. The business case for new services is typically burdened by large integration CAPEX and associated OPEX costs. GLU.Ware is offered on a ‘pay-as-you-go, pay-as-you-grow’ (SaaS) cost model which eliminates the CAPEX barrier to adoption while encouraging experimentation.

Client Self Sufficiency

A ‘configuration over code’ principle underpins the design of GLU.Ware™. No programming skills are needed as Systems Analysts can configure transactions via the GLU.Console. The outcome of the configuration work is a compiled GLU.Engine. The GLU.Engine is deployed by the Client within their ecosystem and security control boundary. This establishes the integrated ecosystem including all connections, transactions and orchestrations, previously achieved through tedious and expensive software development.

GLU.Ware goes beyond it's essential purpose of being a best of breed middleware integration solution. With GLU.Ware all manner of additional business value and benefits can be realised. It's this broader value proposition that we have found resonates loudest with GLUs clients. We believe in partnering with our Clients for mutual success and so helping our Clients to achieve this broader value is part of our DNA.

GLU.Advisory

GLU provides Advisory Services across domains where GLU has deep, expert level experience and value to offer ...

Specialist Advisory broadly spans four domains

API Lifecycle Management Advisory

Opening APIs up enables businesses to transform their technology systems into accessible platforms, this results in extended reach, creation of new revenue lines and / or improved end-user retention. GLU’s API Strategy and Lifecycle Management Advisory capabilities provide businesses with critical support throughout their API journey. Open APIs as well as 'bespoke' or customised APIs can be configure and published with ease. Built in version controls underpin the inevitable evolution of all GLU APIs.

Systems Integration Advisory

Having built over 250 integrations across MFS deployments world-wide, our team has solid experience in understanding, planning for, executing and solving complex integration challenges. Our team is fluent in multi-tier and distributed applications using OO Methodologies, RDBMS and Java/EE technology stacks. They have been instrumental in leading teams to deliver complex, high quality, scalable system integrations for clients across the Emerging Markets. We have connected MFS systems to Banks, Inter-bank switches, International Remittance systems, Bill Aggregators, MNO systems, Insurance companies, Micro-finance systems, RTGS and ACH systems.

Program & Project Management Services

Our highly experienced Program Managers have an extensive track record of being able to deliver large, complex programs of work. With vast experience in leading teams globally, our Program Managers have delivered highly complex FinTech Business and System Integration Programs in the Telecom and Financial sectors. Through application of strong governance techniques, a deep understanding of the vision of the product and a natural ability to lead, we are able to set programs up for success and have successfully built many innovative Mobile Money ecosystems for clients across the Emerging Markets.

Solution Architecture Advisory

Our Business Analysts and Solution Architects have facilitated the Business-to-Technology translation of some of the most complex MFS systems built to date. For example, the Maldives Monetary Authority Program involved the implementation of a full National Payments System including RTGS, ACH, Inter-bank Switches and the Fundamo MFS system connecting three MNOs and five banks. Having built up solid experience in the Visa Managed Service and VisaNet interoperability space, our skills in this area are unique.
