An Elastic Mint team was deployed to focus on moving fund-related data from their SQL Server database into Elasticsearch, and then exposing that data through a .Net Core web service to the user interface.
Our first task was to understand their business, meet the development team and get up to speed with the current state of the project...quickly!
Through open conversation and collaboration we rapidly built trust with the existing team. Recognising the tight deadline they were working to, and the challenges they had already faced on the project, we looked to where we could add the most value in the least disruptive way.
Focussing specifically on the hedge fund area of the application, we were involved in making design and architectural decisions, carrying out spikes to test ideas, and investigating solutions to problems that arose. We worked closely with developers from Preqin, helping to solve problems both inside and outside of the immediate scope of work, sharing knowledge and ultimately producing a solution that met Preqin’s needs.
