How do you Work well in a Global setting?.

Just because we have the communication gadgets in place doesn’t mean that we are well connected and effective. It is important to challenge those assumptions and take actions to achieve our good intentions. 

In this video, jEyLaBs Founder & CEO, Jey Srikantha and Senior Consultant, Gary Sasse chat openly about how we face the challenges of globally distributed teams and embrace the changes needed to improve our daily delivery.


Jey & Gary share their views.

Skybridge accelerates outcomes with jEyLaBs hybrid delivery.

Skybridge Group is a specialised service provider who installs, maintains and manages client assets.

Skybridge provide a transparent first-class experience of provisioning, managing and reporting its activities to its stakeholders and sub-contractors.

jEyLaBs has been engaged with Skybridge since February 2016 to improve their systems and processes.

We provided consultancy services through Business Analysis, Mobile Application Development, Data Visualisation, Agile Software Development and Test automation using a Hybrid team as well as Enterprise Architecture Review and Design.

Skybridge have been delivering many large programs of works with varying requirements to their clients. These requirements needed to be implemented in a key system being used to manage over 20,000 Ticket of Works (ToWs) for any given month.

Introducing a hybrid delivery team allowed Skybridge to grow and shrink the development team based on demand. This was not only a helping hand with reducing a large backlog of work but this was achieved in a cost-effective manner.

Our Hybrid delivery approach was key to the success of this engagement. The core team consisted of an on-shore technical consultant working in parallel with Skybridge’s in-house development team. Supporting this structure were a number of our off-shore .NET resources, one of which was delegated as the team lead to manage communications between the two teams. In parallel and as required, business analysts, mobile development experts and data visualisation analysts were also involved in proposing and executing change implementation.

Skybridge were successfully able to reduce several months of backlog and then address some of the architectural concerns to help their platform to scale.

True Test Automation (TTA) in PowerToolz for K2.

Test Automation typically means running a series of test scripts with a click or on a schedule or on an event happening such as a code check-in.

Most organisations we interact with still manually test their applications. Team of testers are used to take on this task when required.

Over the time they have documented these test steps and deployed scripting to automate this effort to some level.

When it comes to configurable business applications and low code platforms, test automation still stays manual for the most part.

Manual testing is costly, slow and unreliable. It is a bottle neck to innovation. It robs the benefits brought to you by the awesome low code platforms.

PowerToolz for K2 was invented to radically improve this situation and we have been steadily making progress ever since.
