The Project

Accelerating Digital Transformation in Chemical Engineering


The Customer embarked on a digital transformation journey with the aim of becoming more agile and innovative. They engaged Improving to navigate this complex process, facing challenges such as a lack of agile methodology understanding, poor cross-department collaboration, and leadership skills for rapid growth. Improving was tasked with bringing the Customer up to industry standards and fostering innovation.

The Challenge

The Customer's ambition for agility was hindered by leadership gaps and a misunderstanding of agile methodologies, resulting in departmental disconnects. Compounded by the initial vendor's failure to deliver agile solutions, the Customer sought a partner capable of overcoming these obstacles to achieve industry-standard agility and innovation.

The Solution

Improving's intervention began with leadership restructuring, assigning team leads to enhance project ownership and drive. This change propelled team velocities, achieving quicker results and deployments. Modern technologies like React and C# were introduced to revamp outdated systems, elevating the Customer's development standards. A significant contribution came from Jonathan Camara, who innovated the Customer’s infrastructure with DevOps practices and Terraform, managing their server banks and Azure network effectively.
