Legacy system upgrade to support international growth
We helped this global business services organisation to deliver its major applications modernisation by replacing legacy systems with a single technology platform.
About the client
Our client collects and validates supplier data and mitigates risks globally. This data-driven insight builds more secure, sustainable, better performing supply chains.
This global business services organisation had grown through acquisition and found itself with a business critical applications portfolio that was costing a lot and leaving few resources to focus on innovation and growth. The organisation had experienced traditional offshore delivery and needed a partner who they could depend upon and trust to deliver.
A scaled agile framework was used together with a continuous value delivery chain (DevOps). A particularly complex code branch and release environment was required due to the landscape. A robust governance model was established with comprehensive metrics and strict quality criteria.
The objective was to replace around 30 legacy applications with a single technology platform with interfaces into the systems of record.
Over two years NashTech’s scrum teams have completed some +50 sprints to deliver the solution over 20 increments.
The key metrics have demonstrated a continuous improvement in team sprint velocities as well as consistently high quality supported by test automation.
NashTech’s teams have worked highly collaboratively with both the client’s global teams and other delivery partners. Excellent communications and team morale has supported very low turnover during the entire project.
The new platform has already demonstrated significantoperational costs savings as well as providing the flexibility to support international growth and new business models.
