First German Innovation House hosted by VIPCON. Six Customers, Six apps created in three days!


VIPCON was excited to host the first Innovation House with their enterprise customers in Germany. This was the perfect opportunity to introduce Innovation Suite. BMC Innovation Suite is a new solution that empowers developers and business analysts to co-create powerful enterprise apps with stunning user experiences.


The VIPCON Innovation House took place in the Bavarian countryside near Munich. VIPCON’s development team Christoph Klapetke Ludger Woelfel joined forces with BMC product team Dave Sulcer Anand Vidyasagar Robert Curlee to empower Customers to get hands on experience and discover the power and simplicity of the new platform.


The program ran for 3 days where VIPCON and BMC worked with six customers from various industries (automotive, insurance, retail and media) to build individual apps to address business challenges they were currently experiencing in their day to day work.  By the end of the Innovation House program, six different business apps were created and presented to the group. They include:

Communication app: Reducing project related e-mail communication with approvals and changes.

Phone book app: Company phone book with reservation of number blocks for departments.

Extended data management: Workflow driven approvals for changed service attributes with automated classification.

Security subscription app: Loading BSI security incidents automatically and share with IT.

Bid Request app: Administration of bids with related workflow after acceptance.

Service Description Lifecycle Management app: Workflow for controlled creation of services and automated delivery to target system.


The “Service Description Lifecycle Management app” was voted and awarded the best idea by all participants. It was something they found they could use in their workplace.


Participants at the house came from various different roles such as developers, business analysts and IT managers.  Although participants came from a diverse background, we found that the feedback received had many commonalities and these included:

"with BMC Innovation Suite you can simply solve painful challenges"

“after three days I nearly finished my new business application without any coding and not having seen the tool before”

“the result of the Innovation House is an enormous success for me” – CEO who built his own app.


“We found that Customers were excited at the Innovation House program. After 3 days with our Customers, we continued with sales conversations. This confirmed VIPCON's confidence and strategy to introduce the BMC Innovation Suite to the European market” said Andreas Kunz ,CEO  & Co-founder of VIPCON.


THANK YOU to our friends @VIPCON for hosting a great 3 days of collaboration and for your generous German hospitality!

"Secure Site Visitor App," developed by Fusion Business Solutions is an application for the management of visitors to secure environments such as Data Centres, Government Offices or any other security conscious site. With a variety of contractors, visitors and staff attending offices and sensitive areas and secure sites across your company, tracking and managing the risks presented is vital.


The idea behind the Secure Site Visitor App is fairly simple, the application first allows users to quickly and easily request access for a visitor to the required location. Once requested, it creates an auditable approval and clearance process for the new visitor. The visitor can directly receive confirmation once approval is granted. Finally, it monitors the real time access of visitors’ entry and exit from a site. It is worth noting that visitors can be checked in and out manually or even have the status updates linked to automated check in or security systems.

This application is the result of the collaborative work of several of Fusion Business Solutions’ developers. Guruprasad Balachandra has been one of the key developers working on the project. It was spawned as a result of the needs of many of Fusion’s security conscious clients and our vast experience working in secure environments.


“We looked at how we could help manage the needs of some of our customers with strictly regulated organisations that require the highest levels of clearance to get in and out. Making this process as clear and simple as possible was our top priority. Out of the box the App may not suit everyone’s needs but it is very simple for us to customise it to suit individual requirements.” explained Guru.


Secure Site Visitor App 1.0 is available from BMC’s Marketplace from September 8th 2016. Daren Goeson


Congrats to Fusion for placing 2nd place in the App Showcase at Engage 2016! Daniel Swann
