Project description:

The Challenge:

After 3 years of research and planning, the Fulfillment Science team had designed an impressive holistic health and well-being assessment system and were ready for the first steps of building the application.​​
​​
At this stage, their team were principally comprised of leading  health and well-being experts. The need for an equally technical and people focused partner to drive the vision to the next stage was paramount, and through word-of-mouth Broadlight Global was introduced as the ideal partner of choice.​​

​​

How we helped:

Broadlight were successfully engaged to provide expertise on several fronts: ​​
​​

Vision to Backlog – Broadlight worked extensively with the Fulfillment Leadership team through a series of remote workshops, due to COVID 19. Through these sessions we guided the team through the process and enabled the production of a detailed product backlog. ​​
​​

Technical Architecture – Whilst working through the backlog process Broadlight prepared an early indication of technology selection and architecture approaches based on the information we had gained, the current technology landscape and the road-map for the application. ​​
(Azure, .NetCore, DevSecOps Tooling, Microservices, AI)​​
​​

Product Delivery Approach – Broadlight produced a detailed delivery approach encompassing many aspects of Broadlight’s Secure Delivery Fabric, including concepts such as Threat Modelling, CI/CD, Servant Leadership and collaborative processes. ​​
​​

Agile Upskilling – Throughout the duration of the initial project we introduced the concepts of Agile and upskilled the team in news ways of working including SCRUM and associated technology such as JIRA.   ​​

​​

Results and Outputs:

Detailed Backlog that enabled Software Development Partners to provide accurate costs for the build. ​​
​​

Product Delivery Approach that enabled both early governance and assurance of the solution. This also enabled joint planning on the hiring strategy and team make up to ensure the project was successful. ​​
 ​​

Modern Architecture Approach which allowed the team to ensure software development partners were building code that would remain modern, reducing technical debt and improving the costs of running the service in Azure. ​​
​​

Integrated Security Practices through mature DevSecOps processes built into the product delivery life-cycle, our approach provided the reasonable assurance required for modern product delivery and secure scaling. ​​
