Sphere was asked by a Tel Aviv company that operates a training platform to incorporate additional audio-visual capabilities into their existing platform. They were seeking a partner for an end-to-end development pipeline that included partnering to design the user interface, develop the system, validation, and go-live, and within the context of integrating to their existing codebase.
Sphere was approached by a high profile Fintech company that offers a suite of settlement, custody and network services to participants in the digital asset industry. Our client needed a team ready to hit the ground running to flush out and maintain their application stack consisting of several React based client side-web apps, several node.js backend apps, an API service, and several distinct databases, all deployed to AWS.
Sphere was approached by a video training platform startup for recruiters and job seekers that focuses on helping applicants land the perfect job by providing online mock interviews, expert mentor advice, personalized recommendations and video recording, so job seekers can be well prepared in their job search.
In an interesting turn of events, the client placed more value on the business assets (the customers and vendor network) than the technology that ran the business. As a result, the scope of this due diligence was maintenance focused – what are the costs to maintain the technology, transition the customers, then decommission the technology over a 12-18 month period?
The organization had made significant investments in its digital platforms and business optimization efforts but needed to streamline processes (such as allowing the customer service organization to access client records).
