Germany-based software developer x-dream-distribution GmbH, has announced a technology partnership with UK-based Squared Paper Ltd., which develops and integrates micro-service Enterprise ESB tool kits for the media and broadcast sector. An Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) provides a flexible, scalable and distributed infrastructure in which users can incorporate, implement and monitor any type of service in an agile and efficient way.
As part of the agreement, x-dream-distribution will offer Squared Paper‘s Busby toolkit for those looking to build ESB/micro-service based workflows for media applications. Applications include sports archiving, system monitoring, broadcast workflow and social media management. x-dream-distribution will feature several ESB demonstrations on its stand at the BVE 2019 Show in London from 26 - 28 February.
“The Busby product series not only provides out of the box functionality but based on its micro services architecture gives us a tool kit to build individual solutions for our customers without requiring comprehensive custom development,” said Jutta Schoenhaar, Managing Director at x-dream-distribution. “By providing very cost-efficient tailored solutions Squared Paper will contribute as an additional product vendor to our portfolio and furthermore as partner for new solutions and service products.”
Squared Paper’s Busby has all the management and configuration features required for rapid development and managed deployment of “low-code” solutions in the media space.

“As a software company we require distribution and marketing operations to have a high degree of understanding of the product and its possible uses,” said Spencer Rodd, Director at Squared Paper Ltd. “We hope x-dream-distribution will open doors for us into the wider market outside our home territory (United Kingdom) where we have enjoyed great success to date.”
