Constant market pressure is pushing companies to innovate and release new products and services faster and more frequently to maintain an advantage over the competition. As new technologies emerge that enhance and enable reductions in time to market and development costs, it still takes time to effectively learn and adopt these technologies. While companies are faced with these market challenges and technical opportunities, it’s not uncommon for them to also be constrained by availability of qualified resources and internal budgets which make it even more challenging to deliver against requirements.
Leveraging a trusted partner to help you expedite your projects and the adoption of new more modern and efficient practices may be the solution to help you deliver faster.

FinTech Company Works Toward QA Automation
A Fintech software services company had a multi-week regression test duration that resulted in delays to deployment and revenue for new features. Crosslake worked with the team to streamline check in, implement agile test practices and rethink its test automation strategy. This resulted in a 50% reduction in the test duration and $2 million reduction in test automation costs, not to mention faster delivery of value.

In addition to the evolution itself, the intent was to avoid redundant and conflicting efforts as the infrastructure was upgraded and develop new operations processes to ensure planned business outcomes were realized.
Updating Legacy Electronic Product Catalogue System
Via the Internet and it’s own EDI Service, this global electronic parts company helps it’s trading partners distribute key product information quickly, efficiently, and accurately. With this update, hundreds of new features satisfying modern supply chain management requirements were included in this migration of legacy Cobol code to Java open source. In addition to implementing a new web-based customer portal, the system also needed to be integrated with other service provider back-ends.
Gates Foundation Project
