Critical mission

Onapsis contacted us in the middle of developing their flagship product, Onapsis Security Platform (OSP), with the need to accelerate their go-to-market, aiming to be the "first cybersecurity solution for SAP Systems".
Getting ready for demos and investment rounds, Onapsis reached to us to provide consulting on a critical piece: the administration front-end.
We accepted the challenge.


The rigth solution

We advised in the architectural design of the front-end, and participated in the development of both Javascript front-end and Python back-end, our two main areas of expertise.

Onapsis needed to move fast, while also keeping a robust and highly customizable codebase.
These objectives seem to be opposed at first, but we achieved them by choosing modular open-source technologies: Backbone and D3 in the web app, Python Pyramid and SQLAlchemy in the backend.

From these industry-proven, agnostic and modular building blocks, we came up with a combination that allowed rapid development, preserving the freedom to tweak any detail and the confidence of working with a solid foundation.

Bussiness value delivered

We worked closely with the Onapsis team to quickly learn as much of their business domain as possible, achieving high business value results, like a set of specific D3 data-visualization components, or the implementation of a custom Role Based Access Control in the back-end.

Onapsis successfully launched new features in demos and investment rounds, ramping up development while maintaining a solid but easily customizable codebase, that persists across the evolution of the product.
Their go-to-market was a success, acquiring important clients and investors.

Long-term relationship

From 2013 to 2017 Onapsis has relied on us to provide technical expertise in key areas of their business:

  • 2013-2015: Architectural design and development of the JavaScript front-end and Python back-end for their flagship product, Onapsis Security Platform (OSP)
  • 2016: Built an integration between Onapsis’ product and IBM® QRadar®
  • 2015-2017: Onapsis relied on us again to advance their automated testing efforts, we created a framework to automate and document integration tests, combining Python, Jupyter, Swagger and Docker.
