What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We are still in the development phase. It’s not as much an improvement in the performance as it is an improvement of how we can build functionality on top of it. The old Java framework was really not scalable and not easy to use.
The change from Java to Python is important. I expect the same performance as before; however, we can do much more.
How did AWS Lambda Team perform from a project management standpoint?
AWS Lambda Team delivers on time which is good. The project management is quite straightforward. We are now in the finalization of the testing, and then we can add other functionality.
It is all in line with the original project. There is no real project management on top of it with agile or with common framework, but given the size of this project, I also didn’t think that was really needed. We use GitLab, Slack, and email for communication.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Our developers are quite good in terms of the requirements from a business perspective, and they have implemented that on a technical layer. I like their knowledge and they deliver what you expect.
The whole project has gone smoothly which is what I like, and there are no surprises where they can’t deliver on what they have promised.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, I am quite happy with the way we work together.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
They have good, in-depth knowledge and I don’t know if the same results would be achieved without that knowledge. This is more of a general remark on every technology project, but you need to know what you want.
