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.

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.
