Customer Profile

Customer is a global nonprofit organization fighting to eradicate pediatric HIV and AIDS. With presence in 15 countries and more than 6,000 sites, the customer is working tirelessly to prevent HIV getting transmitted to children and helping those who are already infected.

What was the problem?

  • Customer was using a legacy SaaS Procurement Management System which was not compatible with advanced enterprise features and lacked business processes automation. Because of limited customization capabilities, many of their business processes were not mapping exactly with the existing system
  • Used manual spread sheets to manage grants. Therefore, the customer needed an IT partner with right technical skills to coordinate data with business workflows
  • Difficulties in synchronizing data between systems
  • Limited capabilities on data management and integration
  • Difficulties in catering to global business users who have low bandwidth connection, and support multiple languages

  • Data-driven application designed with Angular form controls, binding complex data on run-time
  • Implemented with Angular 6 - i18n, which has the ability to load various localized languages on run-time
  • Azure Service Fabric provided unlimited cloud scalability, creating and removing microservice containers guided by a flexible configuration system

Key Challenges
