Example: Financial Services Company
A large Financial Services company had a mission critical system that had an opportunity cost of $60 million per one hour of downtime. Their downtime was one hour per day (92% uptime) before engaging with us. Over an 18 month period our SDLC and Quality Assurance techniques were applied and resulted in an increased uptime of 99.98% which was sustained for the following five years. This meant unexpected down time was reduced to one hour every three years, rather than one hour every day, mitigating $8.4 billion dollars a year in risk or $42 billion over the lifetime of the project. The added benefit of this new process is that it generated, captured and stored all the required compliance evidence with digital signatures in the correct chronological order to facilitate passing bi-annual audits with zero exceptions, issues or comments.
