AI Size Recommender for Fashion

For a large fashion retailer, TNG developed an application that makes individual size recommendations for web shop customers. The task for the solution was – despite a large number of size ranges and partly low availability – to display to individual customers only those products really likely to fit. To do this, we started with an idea workshop, convinced our client by developing a prototype, and finally rolled out a production solution with measurable success. To create the individual size profiles, we experimented with various machine learning approaches. The final version was then implemented using AWS Lambda and Elasticsearch.

Launch of a Real Time Chat App

To strengthen the contact between customers and pharmacists we supported a wholesale pharmaceutical company in the development of a chat system.

As a "progressive web app", the chat is available without installation and is optimized for mobile devices. We employed cloud services and among many other services a GraphQL interface.

Users' feedback is collected and incorporated into the product, along with improvements and features, in an agile scrum process.

Modularization of a Monolithic Legacy Application though New Architecture and UI

We designed and verified a new architecture for a provider in the logistics sector, enabling incremental migration from two monolithic legacy applications to state-of-the-art modules. We supported risk reduction though various proofs of concept – particularly for the seamless integration of a modern React UI into the existing ExtJS application, as well as to verify backend integration mechanisms.

Introduction of a Cloud Microservice-Platform

We supported a client in building a microservice platform as part of a worldwide technology program. The platform is based on AWS and Kubernetes, which act as a blueprint for new service development and serve as a means to move the concern towards agile processes and Dev Ops.

The implementation of an automated, cloud-based CI/CD pipeline and templates for service development and deployment processes allow services to be delivered in a quality-controlled as well as cost-efficient way.

Payment process improvement

We helped a client meet the challenge of successfully processing all transactions even during periods with especially high order volumes, thus avoiding revenue loss.

To achieve this, we modularized existing code for connecting payment service providers and added two new providers.

The rejuvenated payment process now provides a failover for individual unavailable payment methods, thus delivering the required high availability while at the same time reducing costs.
