Subject: TSD enhances and maintains custom applications and systems for a major US Financial institution that does loan origination and loan servicing

Summary: There is a requirement by a large, respected US financial company for outsourcing and staff augmentation. The request is to be able to extend up to 10 existing teams in the area of development, testing, and application support. Work is carried out remotely and mostly during non-overlapping hours.

Solution: TSD provides full immersion of application developers (both Web and Desktop), QA Analysts, and Application Support Engineers with long-term engagement. Speedy ramp-up of new resources into the process of loan origination is ensured. Dedicated TSD team members participate in back-end (C#, Windows services, WCF Services, .NET Remoting) and front-end changes (ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, WinForms, WPF), Data operation engineering (MS SQL Management Studio 2014; BMC Control-M; Informatica), as well as architecture and design ideas.

Benefits: Client receives long-term staff augmentation and round-the-clock utilization and is able to cut development cost due to the offshore nature of collaboration. Client is able to cover the whole range of development & testing expertise spectrum from Senior to Junior, allowing for SDLC teams of proper hierarchy.

Subject: TSD creates a Business Process Management System targeting SMEs with ISOs

Summary: TSD internal project for an BPM platform that allows for a consistent and substantial control over the documentation and practices required under international standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 27001. The product, which eventually will turn into a development platform, includes modules such as employee planning, vendor management, asset management, helpdesk, calendaring, versioning of documents, risk management, and others.
TSD needs to come up with innovative ways to bring together the most important features that usually require separate and expensive systems. Being able to consolidate those in one tool gives focused SMEs a considerable advantage of not having to buy and maintain multiple expensive sub-solutions.

Solution: TSD develops a unique solution for each project and each module requirement based on internal needs (TSD being an ISO 27001-certified vendor) and projecture on future user needs and expected comfort of use.

Benefits: The platform is to allow for small and medium enterprises to choose one affordable, light-weight, safe and brisk place to manage a lot of the dull and gritty processes, documentations, inventory, and other essentials that make up for a successful and consistent enterprise. Long-gone will be the need to rely on your system administration group to have to remember to update files or databases after specific changes – Hydrogen will ensure that.

Subject: TSD developed automated database archiving system

Summary: Some clients of the company work with various database engines and they needed a single interface via which to archive SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and MySQL database instances. The archive needed to be performed automatically at a specific schedule and the backup files to be encrypted.

Solution: TSD came up with the design and developed the Desktop application. For scalability and better usability purposes, the main block of the program was moved to a separate layer, which is where the background service is running. TSD provided intuitive design.

Benefits: The expected benefits for users was that small enterprises did not have to buy expensive proprietary tools to do scheduled backups. The admin interface can be anywhere on the network, and the services layer is the only place that needs adjustments to network rules. Archiving is available for just about any DB instance of SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and MySQL out there (even for shared hosting services)
