Case study

Visualization of the relations between the different legal entities of a complex business group

OutSystems Practice


Client issue


The client needed a highly customizable web-based solution that can drive efficiency and productivity in the data and analysis needed to enable great insights. This business intelligence tool was developed to integrate, manipulate, and perform simple to very complex visualization of data from different sources.


Sector: Tax Services
Period work performed: May 2020 – Sep 2020





In this engagement we formed a multidisciplinary team including business consultants, UX/UI specialists, software developers and software quality assurance specialists to analyze, design, develop and successfully deliver a solution that would meet client’s expectations, expressed through its requirements. It was used an agile approach consisting in a set of sprints, each delivering a set of high valued features that, in the end of the final sprint would make the solution. The sprints were planned based on the cost/benefit of the features represented on the products backlog. To be ready for development, each feature would have to pass through a business requirement analysis, a UX/UI design and a technical specification. The sprint itself consisted in the development and tests of the features planned. The technology used was Outsystems as a development platform and Jira as a project management support platform.
