Kusiri, a London-based tech startup, established itself as a leader in forensic data search platforms. Serving primarily to the financial sector, Kusiri’s platform was instrumental in improving due diligence, anti-money laundering, and fraud detection processes. However, to expand its capabilities and maintain its competitive edge, Kusiri sought to integrate its platform with third-party data providers and external systems.
Kusiri approached Stratoflow, a boutique software development company known for its expertise in Java-based solutions, to address the following challenges:
Complex Integrations: Kusiri’s platform needed to seamlessly communicate with multiple third-party systems, each with its own API and data structure.
Performance and Scalability: As the number of users and the volume of data grew, ensuring high-performance became critical.
Data Security: In the world of finance, data breaches can be catastrophic. The Kusiri integration had to be both robust and secure.
Stratoflow took a multifaceted approach.
Custom Java solutions: Leveraging the power and versatility of Java, Stratoflow developed custom integrations to meet the unique specifications of each third-party system.
Performance Tuning: Stratoflow implemented performance optimization techniques to ensure that Kusiri’s platform could handle massive data loads without compromising speed.
Core Platform Integration: Stratoflow integrated the provided integrations to third-party systems and external data sources with the Kusiri core platform based on OSGi, enabling flexible module management and testing.
Seamless integrations: Kusiri’s platform can connect to multiple external systems, providing users with a more comprehensive set of data.
Improved performance: Despite the increased data flow, Kusiri’s platform performance remained top-notch, resulting in positive user feedback and increased user retention.
PwC Acquisition: The successful integrations and growing capabilities of Kusiri’s platform did not go unnoticed. PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers), one of the Big Four accounting firms, saw the potential and acquired Kusiri. Through this acquisition, Kusiri’s technology was integrated into PwC’s broader service offering, specifically enhancing PwC’s technology and data offerings to its global client base.
Stratoflow’s expertise in high-performance Java software development enabled Kusiri’s platform to quickly integrate with external data sources and expand its search and monitoring capabilities. With seamless integrations and improved performance, Kusiri not only maintained its competitive edge, but also caught the attention of industry giants such as PwC.
