Nearshoring Development Team integrated in a distributed software development project.

One of LEAD Consult newest partners Valantic IBS has been providing customized IT and telecommunication solutions in Germany since 1991. Throughout the last 25 years it has built a tremendously successful portfolio of satisfied clients and has established itself as a leading consulting and software solutions company for customized and ready-to-use corporate and business solutions, and for the professional system integration of diverse software.

In 2016 Valantic IBS established partnership with LEAD Consult with the goal to support it with its efforts to implement the partner’s in-house product solution and extend its development team. LEAD Consult’s expertise and knowledge in software development and Java technologies proved to be a crucial success factor to the product that Valantic IBS was developing and selling to its end clients. LEAD Consult joined the development team with two software developers and later a Quality Assurance Engineer in October 2016 and the project is currently ongoing. From Client side there were a Product owner, Scrum Master, Project Manager, and two Lead Developers.

The process consists of creating a web front-end with a Java backend, using Java 8, Apache Karaf, OSGi, Quartz Scheduler, Apache Camel, JPA, Shiro Security Framework, Maven, Jira, JSON, JAXB. The work was based on Scrum, with bi-weekly sprints, and daily video standup meetings. LEAD Consults managed to bring its years of experience and to speed the project development timeline.

As a proof of the successful cooperation, from April 2018 LEAD Consult would be taking over the sole responsibility for further developing and maintaining the client’s product on its own.
