Due to LightPoint’s need for the latest technology, they faced a major challenge in revamping their systems. When they reached out to us at Techverx, our key findings were:
Currently: We’re focusing on their maintenance,feature scoping, feature development and assisting them in making data driven business decisions.
Our first step was understanding the system layer by layer. We used reverse engineering to understand the high level systems, used infrastructure diagrams and data flow diagrams using event storming to map the user story and also used example mapping. All of this was done with the help of the Miro tool. Then we documented the system with the help of a domain expert who helped us identify the problems.
As we developed our knowledgebase, our understanding of the system improved. To ensure that their operations weren’t disturbed during transition, we used the modular approach to change their system. Using one module at a time, we updated and upgraded their system to new standards.
During this step-by-step process we presented the client with a strategy on how to proceed further and took their approval at the start of each step. This helped us understand the system on a high level and present the client with realistic expectations and if there was any gap, we filled it through coding and proper documentation.
During this process of gradual change we made their systems mobile friendly by enabling MDS (Market Data Services) to support multiple data collectors. They use the following data collectors: FACTSET, SixFiancials and Bloomberg.
With the help of the right tools and technologies, We helped upgrade LightPoint’s applications
