Automic plans to complete a new user interface for their elaborate and intelligent business automation products in 2016. Called the Enterprise Control Center (ECC), this simple, unified interface will be developed and implemented in collaboration with the international team from Nagarro.
Vienna, January 28, 2016 - Automic’s products Automic Workload Automation, Automic Release Automationand Automic Service Orchestration have added multiple functionalities over the years. This has resulted in an increasingly complex user interface. When the complete revamp of the user interface was announced as a flagship project, the 14-member strong Automic project team started looking for possible resources for this highly complex task. It quickly became clear that the tight schedule did not allow traditional recruitment methods. So, Josef Puchinger, Vice President Engineering at Automic Software involved Nagarro Austria who promptly brought a solution to the table.
Bringing together diverse software competencies
Together with Josef Puchinger, Vice President of Engineering at Automic and Michael Grath, Director of Engineering at Automic, Nagarro’s team is implementing a completely new cross-product user interface in 2016. Numerous sub-points, window-in-window applications and different modes of presentation have to be unified in a simple interface called Enterprise Control Center or ECC in short.
The Nagarro team brings competencies in the field of software development, application lifecycle management and software testing to the mix. A scrum team in Austria and two additional scrum teams offshore operate simultaneously, and user tests are continually carried out to improve the software further.
“In the future, ECC should be more than just a user interface. It should be a pleasure to work with and (should be) intuitively usable.” says Michael Grath from Automic.
On-boarding completed in six weeks
Within six weeks, Nagarro offered an operational team to expand the existing development team. It just took two weeks to align the competency profiles. A scrum master, software and test engineers were ready after 4 weeks of training. By the summer of 2015, the development team was extended to more than 30 people, out of which 20 belonged to Nagarro.
Nagarro has its delivery center in India. The Automic-Nagarro teams use multiple video conferencing and digital collaboration tools to work together closely on a daily basis. Frequent trips to Automic office in Vienna, as well as Nagarro office in Gurgaon enable a seamless flow of information.
“From the outset, our Nagarro colleagues impressed us with their professional and interpersonal competence. It would have been extremely difficult to find as many qualified people and to bring them on board individually”, says Josef Puchinger. In addition, Paul Haberfellner, Account Manager and Managing Director of Nagarro Austria and his staff takes care of the project needs on-site.
