Reducing Integration Risks with Sage Intacct

Integrations are complicated and have way too many moving parts. But that doesn’t mean that they can’t be done. Most modern-day systems recognize the need for integrating into other critical applications and have built their solutions to handle this need. If you are running a legacy ERP product, chances are integrations are really an import/export of files.

Transforming Software Delivery with DevOps

Understanding DevOps

With the ever-increasing business consumption of IT services, IT organizations need a sustainable way to scale their service capacity. They need to manage increasing demand while developing efficient, sustainable processes to safely scale.

But faster delivery of applications is challenging for both Infrastructure and Operations professionals as well as Application development and

delivery teams. Both teams are under pressure to increase speed without compromising quality.

The solution to this challenge is at the core of the DevOps movement.

Renesas Electronics America - Dell Boomi

Renesas Electronics America (REA) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation. The Japan-based semiconductor manufacturer is the world’s largest manufacturer of microcontrollers and the second largest manufacturer of application processors.

REA had an on-premises, legacy integration system that required a tedious manual process of custom coding by an on-site expert which was costly and

unnecessarily complicated. 27 racks of servers had accumulated through years of mergers and acquisitions, and the Director of IT chose to move to the cloud rather than continuing to manage a data center.

The Psychology of UX Design

The best digital experiences are designed for the user

A well-designed user interface (UI) and overall user experience (UX) is critical to your company’s success. Perhaps one of the most important factors of the user experience relates to an important question:

"How does that website make you feel?"

Since Menlo Technologies provides User Design Services, we decided to drill down into

the psychology of UX design, and turned to Dr. Susan Weinschenk. She has been applying psychology to the design of technology for 30 years and is the author of several books on the topic, including 100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People, which combines real science and research with practical examples.

Read our Q&A with UX expert Susan Weinschenk on THE PSYCHOLOGY OF USER DESIGN.

How do we get solutions to customers faster? Make changes quicker?  Reduce the risk of regression defects during a release? Isolate performance issues? 

By designing software apps as a suite of

independent deployable services that can scale and grow as needed.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Menlo Technologies has been able to deliver projects successfully and on time for the client. They continue to be a reliable and effective resource on IT projects.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

The company is a semiconductor manufacturer. I am the Senior Manager and IT department administrator for the company. I am responsible for business processes and applications.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Menlo Technologies?

Menlo Technologies has been our go-to IT source for quite a while.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Menlo Technologies has provided consultation for technical challenges in our applications area.

One of the main projects on which Menlo Technologies worked was development for a revenue forecasting application for our sales team, which was presented with some decision-support information like open orders, sales forecasts, histories of sales, etc. The sales people needed to enter what they believed to be the forecast for the upcoming 15 months. The application required a .NET user interface, as well as bringing in data from various sources and normalizing it. It was intended to be used by various sales professionals across the US and Canada.

How did you come to work with Menlo Technologies?

Menlo Technologies was put in place by our previous IT director, so I was not involved in the selection process.

How much have you invested with Menlo Technologies?

I don't have this information.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have an ongoing retainer with Menlo Technologies for support, mainly offshore. The same team also handles development on some of our projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Menlo Technologies worked with our own team, providing solutions which hadn't existed before. Our revenue forecast application replaced work being done through manual spreadsheets, with many different rules, and in a chaotic manner. Menlo Technologies enhanced the monthly revenue forecasting process to a point of being completely reliable. The time savings have been huge, amounting to several man-months per year. We no longer need to keep our sales people occupied with data collection and consolidation.

How did Menlo Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

We have not had any issues with Menlo Technologies in this respect. Whenever we were presented with new staff on Menlo Technologies' team, their skills were as-advertised. This can sometimes be an issue with consulting firms, but Menlo Technologies has vetted its resources properly. We've worked together through a partnership, rather than using them as hired bodies, and I've appreciated Menlo Technologies' ability to give suggestions and offer different solutions.

What did you find most impressive about Menlo Technologies?

Base on my experience, Menlo Technologies' dedication to getting the job done has been unique. We have an offshore delivery manager working part-time with our team. He's been very effective and saved us a lot of mental energy and time by making sure that our teams are working with each other. This was problematic, given that we're on opposite sides of the Earth.

We've had minimal turnover on Menlo Technologies' staff, and they always planned out transitions as to not make them my problem.

Are there any areas Menlo Technologies could improve?

We're considering acquiring some apps and cloud solutions. As with any other company, we've looked towards less building and more buying, so we've turned to quick solutions from cloud providers, and haven't interacted with Menlo Technologies on this area. I'm not sure how a transition like this would fit within our consulting model.
