The Challenge

Our client is an industry leader in various types of pathology and wanted to expand their portfolio. As they began acquiring small labs, it became evident that they could not operate efficiently with each lab utilizing separate, siloed systems. They needed one unified system, but they faced the following challenges:

  • All existing applications were mission-critical and could not be taken offline while the new LIS was being built.
  • Business required IT to reduce its annual outlay by close to 40%.
  • A 50% reduction of the application footprint was required.
