Complex Business Intelligence – Web-based Application Development Case Study
A global leader in management consulting with offices in 26 countries specializing in strategy, operations, risk management, and organization transformation. This practice group addresses challenges that confront senior business executives, COOs and CIOs. They help clients translate business strategy into action, optimize the operational support for their business and improve performance.
This consulting group was experiencing rapid growth and required additional senior IT resources to lead a complex project to build a next-generation web-based business intelligence (BI) tool to help their client’s sales team price their products and services using competitive and market pricing information.
Surge provided a team of senior IT resources (within two weeks) that included three (3) senior software engineers, UI/UX designer, systems architect, quality assurance and a project manager to support this initiative. Over a 12-month timeframe, the collaborative teams created a roadmap, technical design and architecture to deliver a cutting edge sales quotation application for their client. Utilizing our Certified Scrum Masters (CSM’s) and agile methodology to provide rapid development and feedback, the web-based Business Intelligence application was delivered on time.
This projected was completed in 12 months and the client has experienced a 200% increase in sales volume. The consulting practice was able to support additional projects to meet their goals of developing solutions for all different types of business requirements. Based on this successful engagement Surge is now the preferred 3rd party IT resource for this leading global consulting firm.
The Surge team brought leading best practices and the expertise to help our team deliver a complex BI application
