The Winning Strategy
The company implemented two important projects, Middleware platform team of a large UK Bank and API Factory for a large global bank. Middleware platform was fairly large and complex program.
The company was given the responsibility and accountability of managing the end-to-end development of the middleware platform running on IBM IIB for a large UK bank. They put a team of cross-trained associates with a mix of few experienced associates. The trained vs experienced ratio of the team initially was 60:40, which gradually skewed towards the trained associates and become 80:20.
API Factory for a large global bank was another project implemented by them, where the technologies of choice was Mulesoft and SpringBoot. Being among the most niche skills, it was difficult to put together an experienced team. They were able to deploy successfully a team of trained associates and deliver the project in a span of 10 months.
