Business challenge story

ScaleFocus was identified to be a technology partner in order to integrate remarkable processes in the software delivery pipeline. They would result in an efficient, high-quality and durable production and sales platform. It would have a central interface for the bundling of trade and sales functions for utilities and industrial customers. The platform would integrate several crucial processes such as balancing group management, spot trading, load profile and portfolio management, forecasting and more.

Transformation story

There is an introduction of Continuous Integration/Continuous Development best practices in complex hybrid IT landscape. Furthermore, there has been a modernization and stabilization of an existing application landscape to enforce scalability. Our team successfully completed:

 

  • A front-end and back-end solution audit and performance assessment
  • Custom application development and quality assurance
  • Application and Business-as-Usual management services
  • Preparation for real-time data provisioning

 

Our team created a new DEV environment, built from scratch, using CI/CD with automated provisioning. After the modernization, the most critical business cases are covered by manual/automated test-cases. The test-case management tool in use is quite adept – it can be used both for writing and executing test scenarios, creating test-plans, etc.

 

We also devoted energy to creating a Software Development gap-analysis document with specific outlined areas for improvement for consistent quality control over the development, quality and infrastructure delivery process.

Achievements story

In addition to the abovementioned benefits, our work resulted in Faster Bug-fixing / New feature development and proper understanding of the internal condition with the key areas needing improvement.
