Search Light

Mindgeek offers online content portals and has one of the world's topmost internet traffic. The job of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is to protect Mindgeek's content from infringement. As there are thousands of infringing web portals, Search Light helps automate the whole process. It includes an efficient web crawler based on Apache Storm and crawls thousands of URLs daily. Its different modules work independently as a microservice architecture and perform different functions—downloading video content, matching site metadata with the content library, running a rule engine to identify the infringement, continuously checking for the URL validity, updating internet data, and sending automated legal notice emails. It has a UI for the DMCA to manage the crawling process and the infringement results.

Financial Instrument Lifecycle Management (FILM)

FILM is the central node of multiple other Morgan Stanley upstream and downstream research products that store and manage covered company's data like securities, market analysis, coverage, and related industry details. FILM contains multiple nodes such as services, events, subscribers, and a UI that uses message queues to communicate and Apache Camel as a routing mechanism.

Mediation is a carrier-grade platform that enables service providers to integrate prepaid and postpaid services over traditional and next-generation multiservices, IP, and mobile networks carrying data, voice, and video services. It provides comprehensive data collection, aggregation, and enhancement for upstream business-critical systems like billing, reporting, and analytics.

Solumina is a revolutionary product lifecycle execution (PLE) software suite uniquely designed to manage the product lifecycle for companies specializing in discrete, complex manufacturing. It integrates manufacturing execution systems and operations management (MES/MOM), maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO), enterprise quality management systems (EQMS), and supplier quality management (SQM) across the manufacturing value chain.
