Short description

After consultations with the Espeo team, we decided to create a system using the Vert.x framework and the Elasticsearch search engine. The components used allowed for the creation of an efficient and precise search and comparison mechanism, which included an integrated box.com account. What’s more, the system was adapted for integration with additional platforms offering disk space. Data safety is ensured by evidencing and comparing changes, various levels of authorization for users and an ongoing creation of a history log.

Background

Our company is an international technology, applications and IT governance services company, providing superior managed IT services enabling Biotechnology organizations advance science, accelerate drug development and improve patients' lives. Consulting services for business strategy relating to IT, organization design and project management for Biotechnology companies.

As the Chief Architect, I'm responsible for the project and the implementation of the described system.

Opportunity/Challenge

The drug development and review process is hardly a pleasant one. The formal issues themselves can generate billion-dollar expenses. It’s even harder to evaluate how much time one might need to prepare for the procedure. Therefore, the technical side of this project was undoubtedly a great challenge.

We decided to create a workflow system for documents that would allow for easier, safer and automated preparation for the process of reviewing and approving innovations in the pharmaceutical industry. It was established that the solution would include very efficient search, comparison, approval and record-keeping mechanisms for documents which would likely undergo thousands of changes. There was an additional challenge - the service had to allow for integration with successive service providers, offering disk space.

Results&Feedback

The team of developers turned out to also be a team of real consultants, one that always keeps the business goals of the project in mind and regularly offers ideas for better solutions. Daily videoconferences and conversations allowed me to see their commitment and serious approach to the client. Espeo organized the work in a way which didn’t make the time difference or geographical distance between the States and Poland an issue. In fact, it allowed for true all-around-the-clock development. I was also able to observe the team’s work personally during my stay at Espeo HQ, and they are unbelievably productive. I can definitely say that Espeo is a company with a solid vision. I fully recommend Espeo as a solid partner for IT projects.
