Rule Engine Optimization
We suggested and implemented a performance optimization for the important new customer area of the central rule engine for offer creation and processing in a customer management system. Measurements in the production system for our client, a leading telecommunications provider, showed a performance improvement of between 20 and 40 percent.
Technology Migration for FinTech
TNG successfully delivered the first release for a leading FinTech client. The project involved a technology migration using the strangler pattern. In contrast to a complete redesign, the existing code is replaced step by step, without temporarily losing functionality. The software was rolled out without any hitches and the code is already being used actively by the client.
Introduction of SAFe
An international manufacturer of household appliances introduced SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) to bring products to market quicker and in a more focused way. This transformation affected not only software development in distributed cross functional teams, but also higher levels such as product and portfolio management.
As well as taking on responsibility in development teams for the new Agile Release Train, TNG also provided experienced Scrum Masters to accompany individual development teams.
Two of our colleagues gave a talk on the topic "Distributed Stream Processing - a Guide for Use in Practice" at the parallel 2018 in Heidelberg. TNG also attended the Javaland in Brühl near Köln, the GOTO Meeting in Amsterdam and the TeqNation in Utrecht with the lecture "Beam me up - Holographic telepresence using the Hololens". A colleague gave a lecture "Privacy-Preserving Data Analysis & Security by Design" at the Safety & Security 2018 in Munich. TNG was also present at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco with the showcase "ParrotAttacks VR" in the Intel booth.
Talks and Sponsorship
TNG was present at the Munich Nerd Nite with the Avatar Project, and the IntelBuzzWorkshop for Game Development in Berlin with the talk "Beam me up - Holographic telepresence using the Hololens". TNG sponsored the BobKonf 2018 in Berlin and gave a lecture on Akka Streams, as well as a workshop "Terminal GUIs with Haskell". A colleague gave a talk "Testing outside the Test Pyramid" at the Tech'n'Drinks in Munich.
TNG was present at the Atlassian booth and with three showcases at the Intel booth at the OOP 2018 in Munich. We gave talks on "Clear and Efficient Requirements Management with Atlassian Tools" and "Beam me up - Holographic telepresence using the Hololens". At the OOP TechFair colleagues presented new showcases from the TNG Hardware Hacking Team.
One of our colleagues gave a talk about ArchUnit at the JVM-Con in Cologne. TNG was also present at the J-Fall in Ede/Netherlands and the DevFest Bavaria in Munich with the talk "Avatar - Telepresence robotics with Nao and Kinect".
Another of our colleagues held an Expert Session for the In-Deep Track at the JS Congress 2017 entitled "Roll it up, shake it out: The future of Rollups.js".

Trade show app development
We developed a web application to be used at a trade show stand for a large engineering company. The application comprises a React-based frontend and a Node.js backend and runs on tablets at the trade show. Its frontend features Responsive Design for display on visitors' mobile devices.
We integrated the application with the client's Manufacturing Execution System (MES), enabling users of the app to schedule and monitor orders, as well as viewing the machine's Key Performance Indicators in real time.
Document Search Engine
We developed an Apache SolR and Python based search engine for internal documents for a mobile telecommunications provider. Alongside "traditional" information retrieval algorithms, TextRank is used to display a short document summary as a search result preview. Particularly helpful is the ability to search for complete texts, as wall as keyword searches, in order to find similar documents in the archive.
