Cloud Migration Case Study

Large Steel Producer Turns Software Development into an Investment by Partnering with Tiempo

About the Client

Founded almost 40 years ago, the client is one of the largest domestic steel producers and metals recyclers in the US. With facilities throughout the US and Mexico, the company operates 16 steel and iron processing plants as well as 90+ metal recycling locations.

The Challenge: Reduce Timeline for Modernizing Legacy Application

The client needed to modernize a legacy application that manages manufacturing operations at seven facilities; division managers wanted to move the application to the cloud and add new functionality to enhance manufacturing processes. Expecting the project would require 24 months to complete, the division turned to an IT staffing firm to augment internal resources. But after completing the planning phase with the staffing firm, the company discovered the project would take five years to complete—an unacceptable time frame.
