This clientele encompasses top-tier fleets, OEMs, dealerships, independent repair facilities, municipalities, and military organizations, all of whom rely on our customer for their advanced, customer-centric solutions.

The Challenge

The customer managed over 50 Microsoft SQL databases, which were siloed and thus prevented data sharing. They also faced challenges with an in-house developed IoT data processor, lack of data warehousing solution causing high costs because IoT data was stored in transactional databases.

Additionally, they required an upgrade of their application stack from .NET 4.6 to .NET Core and an upgrade of their flagship portal from AngularJS to Angular 13.

Application Efficiency

The Solution

Kanda Software addressed these challenges with a comprehensive approach which included the following:

  • Data management overhaul

The Kanda team conducted an in-depth analysis of the customer’s databases, implementing a data warehousing solution using Azure Synapse Analytics. This included creating an Azure environment for effective management and backup of IoT data.

  • API development

Kanda constructed numerous APIs to enhance various services, focusing on backend efficiency and integration.

  • Application stack upgrade

The customer’s applications were upgraded from .NET 4.6 to the more advanced .NET Core.

  • Front-end application revamp

Kanda transitioned the customer’s flagship product from AngularJS to Angular 12/13, navigating through budget and time constraints.

 Technology Stack

  • Microsoft SQL Server: Utilized for managing the complex array of databases.
  • Azure Synapse Analytics: Chosen for the data warehousing solution, Synapse allowed for an effective organization and analysis of large datasets. Azure provided the cloud infrastructure necessary for managing and backing up IoT data.
