An exciting bio-tech startup has built a unique system to monitor the health and performance of your livestock. As momentum for their solution was growing, their back-end needed improvements to keep up with the growing demand.
We used a structured, hands-on approach to help them. First, we analysed their entire data pipeline and architecture. We identified pain points, and built a prioritised list of actions. Then, the fun part could begin. We organised a weekend hackaton with their engineering team. We made sure there was enough food, caffeine and video games and then we got started. We dived into the code and reviewed each line in the critical path. The joint effort resulted in a more stable application and a 10x performance improvement for the business. After the weekend, we discussed our work with the leadership and recommended next steps to take, both short-term and long-term.
We're currently still working with the client to offer a sounding board for their leadership and further improve their offering.
