Modernize a Legacy Code Base
A technology-enabled service company had a dated and monolithic code base that impacted the ability to add new capabilities and developers. Crosslake worked with the team to develop an incremental modernization strategy with a combination of wrapping existing code into services and replacing custom code with off-the-shelf components. This enabled a high ROI and minimized code churn. Development is currently in progress.
To Refactor or Rewrite
A company building an education management application wasn't sure on the direction to pursue with their future development. The two options on the table were to attempt to componentize the application and replace parts over time or undertake a greenfield development effort to rewrite in parallel to supporting the application. Crosslake evaluated the architecture and organization and advised on a plan to create independently testable and deployable microservices while still maintaining the existing application for cash flow purposes.
Architectural roadmap for product and platform integration
A SaaS company developing software for foodservices had multiple technical assets with a lack of clarity on whether and how they should integrate them. Crosslake derived a go-forward effort and cost estimate, in partnership with the team with rationale for the approach and presented to the Board of Directors for an investment decision. Additionally, a set of recommendations around specific technology areas, process, tools, and organization were provided. Implementation of the technical roadmap and recommendations is underway.
