Sustainability hackathon at BSH and Home Connect
Our client BSH hosted a hackathon on sustainability and environment. 15 teams invested three days to build new and innovative ideas ranging from more sustainable cooking functionalities to resource-efficient usage of cloud infrastructure. The topic "Zero Waste Cooking", developed by TNG and BSH colleagues, won the category “Saving resources at home with new digital services” and also achieved the overall victory of the hackathon. Congratulations to our winning colleagues: Matthias Linster, Lucía González Rosado, Stefan Wedler, Lennard Schiefelbein, Patrick Groetzner und Rasmus Hellborn!
Launch of the digital clinical decision support tool OptiCor™
Over the past two years, we have been developing the OptiCor™ platform for tenacio, a German medical startup. This innovative platform enables physicians to make informed and personalized treatment decisions based on study data for patients with atrial fibrillation. Having been reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), OptiCor™ is now commercially available in the United States. Through the use of various parameters drawn from patients' medical records, OptiCor™ can accurately calculate the individual likelihood of bleeding, strokes, and mortality, empowering physicians to tailor treatment plans to each patient's unique needs. Additionally, the platform offers sophisticated modeling capabilities, providing insights into how different treatment options may impact the progression of the disease. We are thrilled to further enhance the OptiCor™ platform and continue collaborating with tenacio in the fight against cardiovascular diseases, the leading cause of death worldwide.

Database migration for a webshop
One of our clients, a well-known fashion retailer, faced a major challenge. With a tight deadline, and a maximum of 6 hours downtime, the Oracle databases of the webshop system needed to be migrated to Microsoft SQL Server. As such, a TNG team was tasked with adapting the applications to the target database system and coordinating the data transfer in cooperation with internal and external colleagues.
A direct migration "in one go" was not possible due to the volume of data and the available network capacity. Instead, the team followed a two-step approach. Before the actual migration and while the system was running, the new database was pre-filled from a snapshot. During the downtime, the largest and most stable data tables were only updated, while smaller tables and fast-changing content structures were completely refilled.
The project was a success: after post-migration testing, the shop resumed full operation by the end of the planned downtime. Thanks to prior load tests and performance optimisations, the change went unnoticed by the end users. This new setup helps our client to manage growth in the coming years and paves the way for a future migration to the cloud.
