Exploring Innovations and Advanced Integrations with Minimized Risk
3 min read
Sometimes the problems that technology companies need solving are fundamental, but they don’t necessarily have the resources to explore uncharted territory. Echo Global Logistics, a leading provider of transportation and logistics turned to Spark Equation to engineer a software solution that would increase customer satisfaction rates, unlock new revenue streams and reduce costs for research and development. Using a lean startup discovery framework and a readily-configured continuous delivery pipeline, Spark Equation delivered an internal technology innovation lab that allowed the client to efficiently research and explore new solutions while releasing quality products faster and more frequently.

Spark Teams engineered a cloud innovation lab to find new approaches to existing problems in order to generate the best outcomes without putting the core business operations at risk. To ensure results delivery, the Spark team assumed control and used their time-tested processes, from discovery to delivery, to build a customized solution, saving the company time and money.
Lab Discovery + Delivery Framework
Continuous Delivery Pipeline Configured
The lean startup concept, together with a validated learning loop approach, replaces elaborate planning with experimentation, intuition with customer feedback gathered in the field, and a lengthy, linear product-design process with many quick iterations.
This approach allows Spark Equation to comfortably work on Discovery and Delivery in parallel without sacrificing visibility and transparency while simultaneously ensuring maximum output.
By implementing the continuous delivery approach, software is produced faster and more frequently through building and testing and can be reliably released at any time.
