Ten months ago, StayLinked Consulting Services began enhancing core business applications at the Solutions and Technologies division of Veolia Environmental Services, a subsidiary of the largest environmental services company in the world. Existing applications received new web-based user interfaces, and entirely new applications were created to accommodate current business requirements.
To date, 48 programs have been developed using WebSmart from Business Computer Design.
“You shouldn’t change an entire business system all at once,” says Hogan. “Change only the pieces that need to be changed and leave the other stuff alone.
In Veolia’s case the part that we left alone was the entire database and all the things that touch the database. In fact, their green screen programs were still operational and working while we advanced the modernization effort so the cutover for users wasn’t a hard cutoff.”
