What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We had several measurements for the ingestion project such as the product’s accuracy and ingestion rate as well as the number of sites processed. The results met our expectations.
Velotio built a pipeline that’s able to ingest multiple gigabytes of data per hour accurately. The product correctly monitors and if there’s an issue, I receive an alert. It was a job well done.
The results of the DevOps and Cloud deployment project were muted. Our company is technical, so it’s hard to work with us. We’re building a highly technical product, which presents many challenges.
We hoped to have a senior DevOps teammate, but I had to drive him. While I created metrics, they weren’t fully achieved. For example, we’re still unable to easily deploy a solution.
How did Velotio Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?
We used Jira to track their work. During the ingestion project, their communication was great. Rather than manage the project, I oversaw Velotio’s work. This project ran smoothly.
During the DevOps project, I was more involved. I worked on tasks and synced up with their team daily. I also created precise Jira tasks to ensure they were headed in the right direction.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Velotio had many different capabilities. They had many people on their team who could understand our product’s technical difficulties. This was especially true during the ingestion project.
Whenever we had a problem that no one seemed to be able to solve, we were able to talk with another member of their team who came back to us with a solution.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I hoped to work with a more senior team member who had more experience with Kubernetes. We may have had a miscommunication about that. Velotio could improve how they communicate their team members’ skills.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Ensure that you hire people with the skills that you need.
