DATALAB MIGRATION IN SYNERGY WITH SIMPLIFICA SOFTWARE
Datalab Consulting together with Simplifica Software carried out the migration of a solution for financial institutions from GeneXus 6.1 WIN into GeneXus X Evolution 2 WEB for a major Latin American company, which was the first stage towards the creation of a new Datalab spin-off company named Hexalab and for their product NUCLEO, which is the result of this migration.
“Simplifica’s migration experience and project management, contributed to help us meet the deadlines promised to our customer”. Said Mario Bacigalupo, Systems and Project Manager at Datalab.
“This project was a real challenge, with Datalab we built a mixed team to migrate their system from GeneXus 6.1 to the latest version of GeneXus, moving also their system from platform Win to Web. The system had 800 transactions divided by modules, which not only involved the migration of KB but also the redesigning the screens and applicaton’s flow to suit the web environment” - says Germán Dotta, Senior Developer at Simplifica.
“We built a team where the Project Manager, provided by Simplifica, distributed and assigned the tasks among analysts of both companies. There was full communication, all the time, all being in the same work area for several months”.Alexis Bagurskas

It was a work of great synergy and contribution of the parties, where there was only place to add up.
“We were a team from the first days; there was such a good integration, that it seemed we knew each other for years, it was a very nice experience of mixed work with Simplifica” - says Verónica Peveroni, Senior Developer at Datalab.
According to Alexis, the project planning and initial tasks assignment were difficult at the beginning, but we had the advantage of counting on Datalab and Simplifica’s teams that faced without issues the adversities of the project and contributed with their knowledge to efficiently carry out the tasks.
“They needed to be trained in finance topics at system level that they didn’t know before”.Deadlines were met as scheduled through continuous monitoring performed by both companies and the synergistic communication between them. “The contribution that Simplifica provided us with was the guidance in a timely manner in a complex process of total migration of a management system. They helped us arrange the timing and modules to migrate, as well as review and promote improvements in different sections of the system. The customer was provided with a state of the art management system that will allow them to rapidly expand with a new modality and sales channel”. Alexis tells us, highlighting that he would “no doubt” work again in conjunction with Simplifica Software.
“The opportunities that this system provides to our customer are huge, it positions him on the forefront in a strongly competitive industry; this way he got a differential advantage. I highly recommend relying on Simplifica’s expertise, given that we have verified it and been very successful”.
