How Intertech Enabled a Renewable Energy Company to Launch Software Quickly
From time to time, we like to share case studies of what we’ve been working on here at Intertech. It gives insight into the type of work we do, what you can expect if you work with Intertech to solve your software needs, and what it’s like to work as a consultant for Intertech on challenging projects.
For our newest case study, we profile the work Intertech has been doing with a leading renewable energy consultancy and operations management firm. Our consultants worked alongside the client’s development team, providing coding hours and expertise to create a custom-assembled tool. The application helps predict future maintenance on wind turbines to reduce downtime and optimize layout and logistics.
When the client reached out to Intertech, they had already started developing new proprietary software. This application would replace third party tools that the client paid millions of dollars to license. As the project ramped up, the client realized they’d need more support to get the application completed on time and on budget. Intertech expanded their coding capacity and brought expert developers into the client’s Minnesota office full time to move the project along.
With the project already underway, our consultants needed to quickly learn the existing code structure and start work on new features and fixes. Intertech consultants are experienced on a variety of projects and they often have to learn new codebases quickly. We were able to get to work with minimal ramp up time. Consultants with specific areas of expertise moved from team to team frequently, lending their knowledge to various parts of the project depending on the week.
Working with the client’s development team, we created a web application that can run complex simulations in parallel. The application makes use of Docker containers and Amazon Web Services to scale up when demand is high and spool down when the servers aren’t needed. The result is a custom application that has all the features the client needs without the expensive licensing costs.
