National Australia Bank (Nab) has been on a banking platform transformation journey for a decade now. Base din large part on our founders’ history, Crystal Delta has been asked to assist internal teams with rapid application development and cloud focused DevOps uplift. Nab has refocused on growing an internal developer culture, and we’re very proud to be part of it.
RMIT Online is part of RMIT University. RMIT Online is consumer of our products and services for the education space. Our first win came when we used our Crane LMS Migration tool to migrate courses from Blackboard to Canvas in half the projected time. Then we helped RMIT Online with Xenops, our Open edX MOOCs platform, a critical component in the launch of Apple’s Swift Curriculum as part of the global rollout.
RMIT University is a globaly recognised university of technology, design and enterprise. At RMIT we broke all content migration records with our Crane LMS Migration tool and our QA team. We were able to migrate two semesters of courses from Blackboard to Canvas with a month left in the project estimate. Our high performing QA team continues to improve outcomes on various internal projects.
Swinburne Univerity initially engaged us for a massive Blackboard to Canvas LMS content migration initiative with our Crane LMS Migration tool. When Swinburne were looking for 3rd party submissions to develop a custom solution, Crystal Delta won the tender and leveraged its blended onshore/offshore development capability, our advanced DevOps practices, and our Canvas partnership to extend the Canvas product.
The local Melbournian fintech business grew through a wrap product aimed at financial advisors. In order to grow further they needed to productise their unique offering. Not having an existing technology team, Powerwrap opted to partner with Crystal Delta and leverage our product focused DevOps capability. Using our Agile delivery they have received new features and growth enablers each month.
The rise in agentless real estate sales listings in Australia is underpinned by a handful of companies, among them is buyMyplace. Aiming to capture even more attention through a large marketing and advertising campaign they needed to make sure their platform could handle the traffic. They engaged Crystal Delta to quickly assess hotspots, and then rapidly provide quality improvements at a relatively low cost.
The Malaysia-based startup set out to provide a movie and TV show streaming service for the emerging economies not serviced by Netflix. For this they required a robust and scalable cloud hosted media streaming platform. Crystal Delta engineers were able to uplift their entire DevOps development practice and cloud provisioning pipeline, and helped scale to 14 million viewers in Asia, Africa, and Europe.
A new startup based out of New York in 2014 were struggling with their existing outsourced development team. Crystal Delta were able to take over in a very short space of time and speed up development of their iOS and Android apps, which in early 2015 was listed in the Top 10 best designed apps. We also built their analytics backend. BuckitDream formed their own in-house team in L.A. in 2015.
A group of tradespeople contacted us to develop a simple tradie/apprentice connection website. They knew very little about what developing such a site would entail, but they did know they wanted to work with someone local. With Crystal Delta they got the benefit of local people guiding them through the process, but who also have their own offshore team to meet their low budget.
