Description

After being approached by Medicloud, Minds hired three senior consultants, to get on-site: one
with mobile development expertise, the other with enterprise web app background (node.js,
javascript, MongoDB), and a third one with broad PM and business analysis experience.
The purpose was to gather more detailed information on the business and functional
requirements, in order to define the right profile and skill set of the resources that would be
hired later on.
Upon getting valuable insight into the nature of the projects and the client’s needs, our
recommendation was to build a team of 12 consultants that would focus on business analysis,
spec writing, development of new business logic, testing, and, later on, maintenance and
support.

  • Germany
    • 1 business analyst: a bilingual person (German & English), in charge of
      processing the official state documentation on the matter, defining
      the business logic and preparing functional requirements
    • 2 developers (frontend & backend): 1 with Linux C development skills, and another one with Javascript backdround;
  • Denmark
    • 1 business analyst: a bilingual person (Danish & English), in charge of processing
      the official state documentation on the matter, defining the business logic and
      preparing functional requirements;
  • Additional information
    • 1 manual-testing QA for the Danish and German project
      1 manual-testing QA for the mobile project
      1 PM to oversee the three projects
      1 system administrator
    • 2 developers with expertise in node.js, Sencha Touch, and Phone Gap

Scope

Due to the size and complexity of the Practicedent product (1.5 million lines of code), coupled with the core dev team’s focus on the generic business logic, Medicloud sought our help to outsource the health insurance integration and mobile app projects.
These three projects required resources with a specific set of technological, language and business analysis skills that were outside of Medicloud’s domain.

We advised the introduction of a permanent off-site team of a total of 12 consultants, in order to guarantee the smooth workflow of the company.

This team has been in place for over 18 months and has been supporting Medicloud in developing mobile apps for PracticeDent and making it compliant with the strict dental health regulation in Germany and Denmark.
