The client has been merged with another growing entity from the same industry. Each company has their own fundamental SaaS platform for operation. Post merger, they needed to choose either one, and consolidate into one unified platform for facilitating smooth user experience and long-standing operational excellence. They sought time, effort and money-saving advantages while at the same time leveraging on the most relevant and useful technologies. They wanted us to review architecture of the system, the database, the design and coding standard and rate the system based on different quality attributes.
