Team Achievements – April 2023

NSS Project

NSS Upgraded Application

We are thrilled to announce that our NSS project has undergone a significant upgrade, moving from PHP 5.6 to 7.3 and MySQL from 5.7 to 8. The team has shown exceptional professionalism and technical expertise in executing this critical project. The migration process required an in-depth understanding of the application’s code and the intricacies of the databases. The team has worked diligently to ensure a seamless transition and the stability of the upgraded application.

The upgraded application has several benefits, including improved security, faster processing times, and increased performance. Additionally, the new versions of PHP and MySQL have introduced several new features, enhancing the application’s functionality and user experience.
