If you've been in business long enough, you might have gathered some old technology that you just can't do without.

We've been around a long time, and know how to work with the older tech.

Virtual Katy Connect

Virtual Katy Connect is a collaboration and workflow product for the sound effects industry.

VKC is revolutionary in that - as well as being a full project-management tool - it acts as a central repository for all the audio assets in a project. This means that sound engineers can now go online and submit their work to their peers and supervisors, instead of the traditional practice of copying files to a hard drive and couriering that to another sound department in another city.

KiwiRail AMICUS Application Server Configuration & Support

KiwiRail uses a COBOL/IBM CICS (TXSeries) application server system running on IBM hardware. Clearfield handled the configuration of the CICS/AIX application server, tuning it for optimal performance. This involved optimising the backend database and configuring the CICS server and ongoing management. Clearfield also configured the WebSphere MQ Series which the CICS server uses to communicate with a separate WebSphere server.

KiwiRail Batch Script conversion

As part of a large project to migrate KiwiRail from an IBM iSeries mainframe to an AIX infrastructure, Clearfield handled the conversion of the overnight batch scripts from JCL to Unix shell scripts. The batch scripts are involved in billing, revenue management, cargo tracking, data mining and data warehousing, and involve large amounts of SAS and COBOL. Clearfield also optimised the scripts to make them faster and more able to run concurrently with other processing.

Monitoring device prototyping

Development of proof-of-concept Embedded Linux code to control a small consumer device running on custom hardware. This device communicated to a server through a variety of pluggable communications protocols. Clearfield was involved in the hardware and software prototyping, and also wrote an Amber-based server side application to visualise, monitor and control large numbers of these devices from a central location.
