Mekorot is the National Water Company of Israel.
Mekorot's responsibilities are multidimensional:
Integrated management of all types of water in a single system:
desalinated water, well water, surface water, brackish water, treated wastewater, and floodwater
- Water supply to all sectors: households, agriculture, and industry
- Use of engineering models for operational optimization and energy efficiency
- Water production - seawater and brackish water desalinization
- Hydrology and drilling
- Advanced treated wastewater management and operations
- Water treatment and quality
- Cyber, water security, protection of water sources and supply
We designed for Mekorot the software architecture for a platform that
securely connects field workers to Mekorot's back-office systems
from anywhere any-time.
Field workers utilize applications installed on commercial
The design also supports field worker's work in disconnected mode when
Internet connection is unavailable and data synchronization on Internet
Business Objectives of the design were:
- Cost reduction by increased efficiency of field workers
- Increase accuracy of remote workers reports
- Seamless remote work-items assignments to individual field worker
- Increase efficiency of field personnel management
- Data collection for future BI use
After approval of the design by Mekorot we prepared a
Project Design (PD) and delivered the complete blue print for the
PD is based on
Critical Path Method
Each task item was delivered exactly on time.

Re: Architecture for connecting mobile systems to organization back-office systems
Mekorot is undergoing a wide-range re-organization, that also includes
digital transformation. Mobile applications for the use of Mekorot's
employees are a significant part of that transformation.
These applications are in the major activities of Mekorot: water supply,
water quality, maintenance etc. and their main characteristic is
interface to Mekorot's back-office organizational systems (SAP mainly).
Mr. Jabotinsky prepared for us an architecture design for connecting
mobile applications to Mekorot's back-office organizational systems
using the IDesign methodology.
Mr. Jabotinsky studied the current situation and the needs of Mekorot
and gained deep understanding of it. He conducted a series of meetings
with the technical parts of Mekorot, identified the constraints and
the failure points and proposed, on the schedule allocated, to Mekorot
modern message-based software architecture for the implementation of
It is evident that Mr. Jabotinsky has deep architectural and
