Package & Delivery Framework

Package & Delivery Framework

Customer

Our customer is a Nordic leader in human resource and financial resource management solutions serving over 12 000 clients in Nordic countries.

Challenge

Customer’s software solutions exist from 1990s and are gradually evolving. There are tens of program modules for HRM. Being quite complicated themselves, they become much more complex when aggregated into a suit. The suit can be installed in a number of environments with different operating systems and databases. Therefore, it’s packaging and delivery to numerous customers is a nontrivial task. Using common packaging tools requires too much manual adjustments from highly qualified consultants.

Solution

To make it easier, we have developed a unique packaging instrumentation, which eliminates most of the manual adjustments, diminishes probability of errors, and saves a lot of time for both developers and consultants.

The first tool is an additional framework for Install Shield that adds to it much more functionality, automates time consuming manipulations, drastically reduces the time required for package creation, and decreases the probability of errors. Now all packaging within the Customer's company is made with the tool.

The second tool is aimed at suit packaging simplification. The more modules it consists of, the more complex is the packaging and deployment on the customer’s environment. We have developed an original approach to the integration of the components inside the suit. It takes into consideration all dependencies of the components from each other as well as from the given environment. Our suit-packaging tool enables installation in the cloud, silent mode installation, simultaneous installations of many instances on different servers, flexible upgrade procedures, etc.

Results / Benefits

These two new packaging tools make packaging, delivery and deployment of the complex products much simpler, more controllable and less time-consuming.
