Our client’s global web platform is critical to its business – it has to be there up and running no matter what. Yet over the years the platform they had in place had begun to show its age. A solution that had been reasonably sophisticated ten years ago was proving to be increasingly inflexible and difficult to use. There was no such thing as a small or quick change. Moreover, successive customisations had further compromised the platform’s ability to perform and maintenance and upgrades were becoming ever more problematic. The original principle of having a central platform that gave scale economies and enabled group communications to retain overall control was breaking down.
Our client recognised the need to change. The challenge was to develop and implement a new modern platform – one that was easier to use and far more flexible. We helped them meet this challenge.
