EasiRun and TELEBIG have worked together in a strong partnership for over 25 years. The two organisations share the same vision regarding IT modernisation efforts and solutions, and develop and share common technologies.
At the end of 2010, Dehner decided to migrate their application and issued a request for proposals, to which all of the major infrastructure suppliers and system integrators responded.
After a series of intensive dry-run tests for a go-liveimplementation, which took place during October and December of 2013, the final go-live took place on the weekend of the 21-23 of December 2013. The conversion of the systems was well received by all involved parties and had no negative impact on the users or developers during the go-.live as well as no negative impact after the go-live.
Don Fitzgerald (CEO EasiRun):
From our perspective, the project was particularly influenced by the very high level of coordination and cooperation required. This was, due to the complexity of the application and the landscape neccessary throughout the entire project cycle. These requirements were successfully met thru the excellent cooperation with Dehner and TELEBIG. Flexibility was required of all involved and was never in question. All in all, a very demanding as well as very well executed project, with full success.
