Problem and Solution Summary

The client faced a challenge in critical systems security where it was necessary to operate at a world-class level while strictly adhering to high security standards. The main challenge was to provide accurate calculations to meet security standards in large physical facilities. Existing systems were complex, with many customisations, and often required expert investigations, as they could not perform real-time calculations. Additionally, connecting various modern devices into a single network posed challenges in information sharing and communications.

Computools solved these problems by creating a customised system that can handle energy-related devices and use the latest algorithms to predict different events and make intelligent decisions in different situations. This system is also able to predict how devices can be better placed and configured to work in a better way in terms of performance and safety. With this approach, the level of security and performance of large physical facilities has improved dramatically, and it is now possible to more confidently meet security standards and allocate resources.

About the Client

The client builds and maintains dedicated systems that secure critical facilities and systems. It operates on a global level.

Outcome

The results of the system's implementation have been significant. First of all, the system significantly improved the level of security in large physical facilities, which was critical for a client working in the field of secure systems. It allowed for more reliable compliance with security standards and timely response to potential threats.

Along with this, the solution brought clarity and efficiency to resource management. Optimisation of resource allocation became more accurate and data-driven, increasing operational efficiency and ultimately reducing costs.

STORY IN DEPTH

Initially, the client analysed the IT services market and identified several potential candidates for the project. This stage included an assessment of the companies' experience, technological expertise and reputation. The client conducted a detailed comparison of all candidates, considering their backgrounds in secure systems, technology solutions and global experience. Computools caught the eye with its broad range of technologies and successful project cases.

Project Description

We carefully considered every stage of this project, starting with extensive consultations with experts and subject matter experts. Our team conducted research to better understand the challenges we faced and developed a comprehensive discovery strategy that was our guide for the project.

We explored device API capabilities, field communication strategies and algorithm development to ensure our solution would work in practice. We developed detailed specifications, focusing on the user interface and user experience to make the system user-friendly and functional.

After successfully completing the discovery phase, we proceeded to implement the system. We also provided ongoing maintenance and updates to ensure that the system remains responsive and able to adapt to changing needs.

This project is the result of in-depth analysis and long-term work and is helping to improve the safety and efficiency of large security sites.

Communication Framework

A communication framework was put in place to ensure effective communication between the client and our executive team. We held regular meetings and discussions with the client to ensure we fully understood their requirements and expectations. We used Email, Jira, Slack and Microsoft Teams for operational communication. We used dedicated project management tools to allow the client to see progress, task status and scheduling.

An important part of the communication was feedback from the client, which allowed us to adjust the work and meet their needs.

Story of a Team Decision

Computools, a software development team, has a long history of success thanks to their strong collaborative spirit.

Backstage

Computools' productivity stems from a well-defined development process and smooth communication between in-house engineers and client-side experts. Regular planning sessions and review meetings foster harmony among team members spread across multiple locations, leading to exceptional results.

Sprint Retrospective

The team usually conducts a sprint retrospective at the end of each sprint. The session starts with the team recalling their goals and what they planned to do during the sprint. The team then discusses what they did well and what they did not do well. The team can also discuss any problems they encountered during the sprint.

Planning Session

In the planning session, the team and product owner work together to identify and prioritise tasks for the next sprint. They then estimate the effort required for each task and set realistic goals within the sprint's timeline. This step is essential for clarifying team objectives and ensuring alignment with the overall project goals.

Sprint Demo

The sprint demo is a crucial event in the Agile development process. It is an opportunity for the team to showcase their work to the client or product owner and get feedback on their progress. During the demo, the team typically demonstrate the new features or improvements they have completed during the sprint. This allows stakeholders to assess the project's progress and provide feedback that can help the team to refine their product.

Communication Flow

In the Computools development process, the engineers maintain a continuous and efficient communication stream to ensure timely updates. They use a variety of channels, including email, Slack and Skype, to communicate with each other and with stakeholders. This ensures that everyone is on the same page and that any potential issues are identified and addressed early on.

Project Management Methodology

Scrum was chosen for the project because of its ability to provide regular reviews and feedback, enabling the team to improve performance in practice. Scrum also supports the involvement of experts and stakeholders by ensuring their participation in the development. Changes and updates to the project are easier to manage using Scrum as it provides a flexible iterative development model.
