Initial situation

During a long-term project, various applications of Messe München were updated, including the BizTalk-based middleware platform. After a detailed analysis, the customer decided to implement all future integration requirements in a newly installed Talend infrastructure and gradually replace the old solution.

A reliable partner was sought for the stable and maintainable provision of the Talend Middleware.


Planning and support of the technical infrastructure Talend ESB – from the creation of the Linux servers to the Talend services incl. monitoring of all servers and Talend processes.


  • Creation and planning of the entire infrastructure using virtual servers in VMWare
  • Complete Linux administration of all servers
  • Installation and maintenance of the components and programs required for Talend operation
  • Building the Talend Operating Platform
  • Monitoring of all systems by the cimt outtasking team
  • Independent reaction to reported malfunctions through the automatic monitoring system
  • Planning of software updates
  • First-level support for all Talend issues via ticket requests to the cimt ag ticket system (OTRS)
  • Second-level support for the project team by Talend ESB Developer
  • Complete documentation and documentation maintenance of the technical infrastructure in the customer system (here Confluence)

  • Except for Talend ESB (in Enterprise Edition), open source solutions were used for all components.
  • The servers realised as virtual machines are permanently backed up and can be quickly completely restored.
  • The test and production system is identically structured and was created as a fail-safe solution.
  • This means that jobs, services and routes can be realistically distributed and checked directly from the development environment into the test system even before they are integrated into critical productive processes.
