Overview

 

One of the largest medical equipment providers in the world approached Slater Hill in late 2016 to aid in the migration and modernization of the software that controls their highly specialized medical lab equipment.
 

 

Client Challenges

 

The Delphi-based software that operates the lab equipment was developed more than ten years prior to Slater Hill’s engagement and had been modified continuously as new equipment models were released. The software had now reached a critical point where minor updates were no longer sufficient to carry it forward to future devices. Also, restrictions in current data storage made it no longer practical for global use. The client was already in the process of developing and testing new equipment models and releases for them were already scheduled. Slater Hill was challenged to step into that process with minimal to no impact on the overall timeline.
 

 

Our Solution

 

After a brief discovery phase Slater Hill recommended a more cost-effective migration and modernization approach, rather than the large-scale redevelopment of the software originally thought to be required by the client.
 

 

Results

 

Slater Hill successfully migrated the software from the decade-old platform to the latest version of software and storage. Deploying a new, more widely supported data storage solution has extended the lifespan of the software while providing a new (widely supported) platform at substantial cost savings.  The software is now set to continue for years to come. Having met the deadlines, the next scheduled releases of the software is on time for the newest devices in the company’s lineup, and they are confident they can now meet their release dates and commitment to customers.
