How did you select this vendor?
We’ve chosen Speck based on the recommendation from a colleague who is an expert in the field.
Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.
Speck provided consulting services in regards to making our architecture more scalable and secure. They’ve also been engaged in developing certain parts of the core API.
Both Speck’s team and our developers dedicated the initial two weeks to the discovery and research process which addressed both our general vision and the specific pain points and challenges we’re facing in our current development.
Speck proved to be extremely flexible, within a few weeks from the start of the project their developers joined our team in Bogota for an on-site three-week workshop.
Speck’s help consulting-wise was invaluable: they addressed the initial challenges regarding the optimization of the number of requests the platform can receive and further scaling, and continued to provide ongoing support throughout the further development process.
They took the time and effort to consider and test different technologies before providing the final solution.
Introducing an SQL approach instead of the existing graph solution drastically improved our transaction tracking process and the numbers of transactions we can process per second. Activity spikes are optimized through the right choice of the queue manager, also recommended by Speck.
Apart from providing expertise through consulting, Speck’s team joined our team on developing certain features of the architectural solutions they provided.
What was the team composition?
Speck’s team consisted of four developers and one project manager.
