The Challenge

Pangea sought staff augmentation services to support their roadmap plans for 2022. They reached out to Sphere specifically looking for 3rd party .NET Developers to augment their core team to expedite their .NET Core migration project. 

Pangea was looking to outsource developers so their core Chicago-based team could focus on new features development. The CEO made a request to the tech leadership in the organization to roll out promised features (laid out via roadmap) ASAP, and the team was tasked with expediting the migration. They identified a lack of development resources and so they engaged Sphere for assistance to alleviate the backlog of development tasks.

How It Was Solved

Sphere provided 2x Full Stack .NET developers that were onboarded and working under the leadership, guidance and direction of Pangea’s tech leadership team. Pangea successfully migrated from a set of legacy platform services based on a Windows .NET framework application deployed on several AWS EC2 servers to a newer existing design based on .NET 5 (aka .NET Core) running on Docker containers hosted on AWS ECS. In addition, there was a migration of a legacy platform service developed in Scala to .NET performed by our team. 

The Results

After the .NET migration, going from a legacy system to an upgraded system, our client Pangea solved a number of issues. Pangea witnessed a reduction of bugs and received access to newer libraries in the codebase. Our client is pleased with the migration and our team’s efficiency and high communication competence. Sphere Partners provided them with great fit resources as our developers with understanding of Scala code and niche expertise in .NET fulfilled the requirements for the migration project. We are still working with Pangea on other projects.
