Problem

  • The main challenge was that the current stack was deprecated, making it non-operational on modern browsers and OS.
  • GE’s sales team was losing prospects daily due to the unavailability of high-end systems required to run Adobe Flex.
  • There was a lack of knowledge transfer, with many modules and facets, including assets and videos, unknown to their technical and functional teams.
  • The deprecation led to monetary and opportunity losses, impacting the business negatively and causing concern among C-level executives as growth charts were moving downward.

Our-Approach

Our Approach

  • BigOhTech started by decompiling the Adobe Flex codebase to understand the logic and functionality of the application.
  • React was chosen for its flexibility, component-based architecture, and large developer community.
  • We migrated Adobe Flex to React PWA with Electron, enabling clients and prospects to run the application on browsers and install it as a desktop app.
  • Used Canvas JS and React JS for custom animation.

Benefits

  • The modernization of this one application led the business to decide to upgrade 30 other legacy applications.
  • These initiatives allowed the sales team to reach out to their prospects more effectively.
  • The turnaround time (TAT) for client demos, including preparation and actual demo, was reduced by nearly 70%.
  • The Profit and Loss (P&L) panel throughout the application has been improved.
