Freelance Softwarekonsulenter

At the end of last year, it became clear to Silkeborg Data that Silkeborg Løn needed to move to a JEE platform supplier, as the existing one would no longer be supported. To get Silkeborg Løn up and running on the new platform before a strict deadline, Silkeborg Data needed more manpower and some technical assistance, and they asked Mjølner for help.

THE CHALLENGE

With manpower, technical assistance, and consultancy, we helped Silkeborg Data perform the migration part of the front-end of their wage system, Silkeborg Løn, from one platform to another within a short time frame.

Silkeborg Data has more than 40 years of experience within salary- and personnel administration. At present, 28 municipalities, 4 regions, and more than 100 public institutions use Silkeborg Løn. The many users speak for themselves and make Silkeborg Data Denmark’s most successful provider of salary systems.

With a consideration of the users’ needs, Silkeborg Løn is easy to navigate and effective. It was crucial to Silkeborg Data that the migration to a new digital platform did not inconvenience Silkeborg Løn’s many users.

 

NEW PLATFORM AND ARCHITECTURE

At the end of last year, it became clear to Silkeborg Data that Silkeborg Løn needed to move to a JEE platform supplier, as the existing one would no longer be supported.

With the shift from Websphere Application Server 6.0 to JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.2, Silkeborg Data has achieved a sustainable platform, which enables Silkeborg Data to continue delivering prestine services to their customers.

To get Silkeborg Løn up and running on the new platform before a strict deadline, Silkeborg Data needed more manpower and some technical assistance, and they asked Mjølner for help.

A total number of 17 people from Mjølner stepped in to assist Silkeborg Data in their migration project.

 

“Migrating Silkeborg Løn was a complex and demanding task. We trusted Mjølner’s expertise and diverse set of competences to help us accomplish the job within the short time frame. Mjølner more than lived up to that trust.”

– Jesper Palm Mortensen, CTO, Silkeborg Data

 

MANAGEMENT, ARCHITECTURE, DEVELOPMENT & TESTING

Mjølner was part of the project from the start and contributed by solving project management, architecture, development, and test management tasks.

Testing played an especially important role as continuous quality control in the individual teams as well as on the general level was vital for the result.

 

“Mjølner was a true asset in our migration project. The consultants were a boost of competence and a good match to our teams.”

– Jesper Palm Mortensen, CTO, Silkeborg Data

 

Due to great cooperation between the teams, determination, and a common goal, we moved part of the front-end of Silkeborg Løn System successfully from one platform to another. We even finished before the deadline. The move was gradual and easy on the users.

 

GREAT RESULT THROUGH TEAMWORK

The migration project was not only dependent on the teams’ individual skills, but also their ability to work together. The good teamwork between Silkeborg Data and Mjølner was a huge part of the migration project’s success.

 

“Silkeborg Data were forthcoming and cooperative. As a result, our united teams were very effective. It was a pleasure working as consultants for Silkeborg Data.”

– Elmer Sandvad, Presales Manager, Mjølner Informatics
