Business automation - Latite roofing
A South Florida roofing company has a complex method of payroll
for some of their workers, which involved a day and a half of manual
work to calculate, every week. They had no commercial off-the-shelf
solution available, so they called Salient.
Complex Web site back end - Luminant Worldwide
We were able to carefully elicit the requirements of the project, and
quickly assemble open-source components along with customization that
we provided to create a comprehensive system to automate their
work. After our solution was deployed, the weekly time they spent calculating
payroll dropped from 12+ hours
to about 1 hour. The system developed by Salient integrated into their
existing off-the-shelf payroll system, so there was no duplication of
data or labor.
Luminant Worldwide creates sophisticated
web sites for Fortune 500 companies. They needed
expertise to build a
web site of indexed streaming video. Construction of this project involved
the integration of Virage ®
video indexing software,
IBM HTTPServer, WebSphere Application ServerTM,
placed a senior engineer on this project to handle the areas where
Luminant did not have experience readily available.
Security Incident - a local telecom company
Salient was involved in the prototype, the product design, consulting
with the end customer, and coordination of the development process.
Using our abilities, Luminant was able to complete the back end of this
project on schedule.
The Technical Architect for the project was so pleased with our work
that he volunteered to write a letter
of reference, which you may view on line by clicking the link.
One satisfied customer of Salient is a consulting company for the
telecommunications industry. One
Thursday, they found themselves in a predicament that no company wants
to be in. An ex-employee was making credible threats about
being able to attack their network, and they had no firewall protection.
They unplugged their Internet connection and called Salient.
Project acceleration - Cyberguard Corporation
Salient placed two senior engineers on site within 24 hours. We were
able to find spare hardware on the site, configure it, and install
a Cyberguard firewall on that platform,
the most secure firewall available. We reconfigured their network,
configured the firewall, and re-established their Internet connection.
We also shut down their vulnerabilities to Trojan Horse attacks.
Salient worked late into the night with police escort on site.
Because of our expertise and
quick response, the customer was only without an Internet connection for one
Cyberguard is a provider of the most secure
firewall in the industry. Their product is technically advanced and
requires extreme reliability. When Cyberguard needed a particular
project to move ahead, they called Salient.
Subcontracting Skillsets - Keane
We placed three senior engineers to jumpstart a project that had a very
demanding schedule. We quickly came up to speed on the technology and got
the project on track.
After several months, Cyberguard was able to hire the personnel needed
to staff the project, and Salient successfully transitioned the project
to the new employees.
Keane, Inc. called us when they got a
large service level contract with a well-known Fortune 500 company. They
had most of the project staffed, but they needed someone with
and cluster experience, which is very difficult to find.
Quick Expertise - EMC
Fortunately for Keane, Salient had the expertise available to meet and
exceed the need they had. Our engineer came up to speed on a complex
environment for which the documentation had been lost. He quickly became
one of the key members on the Keane team.
The end customer was particularly pleased with the way we were able
to bring hidden problems to surface and avoid a serious breakdown
that was eminent in the system, and
The Principle Consultant for the project
sent us a letter of recommendation.
Without the skills from Salient, this
problem would have been deployed into the field and caused an
expensive customer incident.
EMC called us when they needed some
very specific work to be done for one of their customers. They had
a short-term need for some difficult
Salient was able to immediately place a senior engineer on the project
and bring multiple outstanding issues to closure in about six weeks.
All of the outstanding problems assigned were brought under control and
the resulting work was gracefully transitioned to EMC staff engineers.
