“Long story short, Evergreen has been a game changer. The 2-3 upgrades we had performed prior to Evergreen were significantly over budget, extended well past the initial deadlines and were disruptive to our operations.
Combine the upgrade issues with the degradation of the Ellipse product in the eyes of our users – for example, slower performance, bugs introduced during the upgrades, etc – and Arch Resources (Arch) was seriously considering a migration to another platform. We knew we had to do something differently if Ellipse was going to remain a viable solution moving forward.
The Evergreen process took a lot of the upfront burden off of Arch, allowing our resources to focus on their day job. COSOL did the analysis and initial testing, bringing forward a recommendation of which version Arch should move forward with.
The results exceeded our expectations. We plan to upgrade Ellipse every year moving forward unless there is a business case not to. Had we proposed that to our user community two years ago, we would have been laughed out of the room. We have earned their confidence back and are not currently looking to move away from Ellipse. Evergreen and our partnership with COSOL has been a great success to date.”
