Angular Migration for Jade ThirdEye

About Jade ThirdEye

Jade ThirdEye automates anti-money laundering (AML) compliance and makes it simple for companies at risk of financial crime to meet their legal obligations.  Customers include the risk and compliance teams within financial institutions, credit unions, money transfer companies, insurance providers and gambling operators.

"We have found Lancom to be really great to work with. Not just in terms of their developers but as an organisation they are culturally aligned with us. When we needed some additional support, Lancom were the natural people to engage. From the top-down, everyone has been really responsive. We couldn’t have asked for more."
John Ascroft / Chief Information Officer, Jade Software Corporation

The challenge

Silverlight support discontinued 

With a user interface (UI) and frontend built using Microsoft Silverlight, a soon to be discontinued development platform at the time, Jade ThirdEye needed to urgently replace its UI with a new, state of the art frontend. 

Ageing technology 

The Jade ThirdEye product was first written over 10 years ago and Silverlight was central to this product.  With rapid customer growth in the last few years, Jade ThirdEye needed to urgently upgrade from MS Silverlight.  And as Jade ThirdEye developers were wholly focused on new product functionality, they were seeking a partner experienced in their preferred new UI (Angular) to speed up the transition process and allow them to still deliver on required product functionality. 

Modern SaaS architecture 

As Jade ThirdEye continued to extend its SaaS platform, they recognised the limitations of the ageing Silverlight UI. 

The solution

Silverlight frontend review 

Our team reviewed what would be required to move from a Silverlight UI to Angular. We evaluated the existing Silverlight code base and produced a report that included a transition plan and requirements to speed up the move to Angular. 

Why Angular 

Angular is an open-source web application development framework, maintained by Google and a large community of developers. It addresses many of the issues faced during the development of single-page applications and offers expanded features like routing, dependency injection, animations, and more. Dependencies are handled efficiently, and massive parallel development is made possible. In a nutshell, Angular offers speed, performance and improved productivity.  

The results

Augmenting the home team 

Our team of Angular developers worked with the Jade Third Eye team. We did this by stepping in and working as part of the Jade sprint team. Providing a professional and productive addition to the team. 

Complete re-work of the user experience 

The migration from Silverlight to Angular was a huge effort. It required a complete re-work of the user experience and was the main project for the combined Jade Third Eye team for the year.  The result is an AML platform that is more intuitive easier to use. 

Faster, cleaner and better looking 

The new frontend is faster, cleaner and more intuitive for modern software users. It takes fewer clicks for users to access the information they need and it’s also simpler to find and access related information. 

Ready to become SaaS native 

Whilst the core focus for the Jade ThirdEye team has been moving away from a defunct Silverlight, the team now has a product that is aligned with their evolving SaaS and Jade ThirdEye product strategy.  The move to Angular now makes it much simpler to re-architect the platform’s components and leverage the latest AWS cloud services including databases, containers and CI/CD pipelines.
