Client's Challenges

Legacy Software

The application client needed help with was there for quite some time. Lacking any documentation, their in-house team struggled to understand how to operate, deploy, or maintain the software. Recognizing the significance of the problem, they sought external expertise to find a viable solution.

Disaster Unreadiness

Unsure of effectively managing the app, the client realized they were also unprepared for potential emergencies. Building a comprehensive disaster plan and step-by-step emergency guides has become a priority.

Reverse Engineering

To unravel all the aspects of the system, our team used the Reverse Engineering technique. By studying the app through experimentation and testing, we pieced together a clear understanding of its architecture, functionalities, and dependencies into comprehensive documentation.

Team Education

Recognizing that each client's team member has their own experience level, we tailored a comprehensive course to bring everyone on the same page. We also improved in-house staff competency by offering hands-on expertise and guidance, enabling them to use unfamiliar technologies confidently.

Security Requirements Compliance

We established a strong foundation for security compliance, such as PCI DSS, from ground-up infrastructure development to elevating the product with modern solutions like Kubernetes. Configuring access to the Oracle DB and implementing Hashicorp Vault, our experts ensured users' data protection. Additionally, we trained the internal team in handling unsealing procedures, reinforcing the system's robustness.
