By overhauling its database, this window design company revitalized its backend operations.
About the Window Design Company
With nearly three decades of experience in the fenestration industry, this company has established itself as a leader in high-rise construction and renovation. The company specializes in fabricating commercial and residential thermal aluminum window products, expertly integrating architectural metal and glass.
The company’s backend was outdated
The window design company needed to revamp its database and update services to replace legacy code and enable additional database functionality. The existing data structure was increasingly cumbersome, resulting in inefficient processes and increased costs.
Reconstructing the Company’s Data Access Layer
The project centered on designing and constructing a new inventory object model using Microsoft SQL Server and Entity Framework. The updated database was configured to accommodate data from various sources, including external research, sales tracking tools, and internal production management systems.
A Project Manager was assigned and utilized a traditional waterfall methodology to steer the project to success.
We employed the JIRA project management platform to maintain detailed logs of functionalities, backlogs, release structure, and other data. SystemX time sheets were used to monitor project time and prevent overruns.
