Case Study

Microservices Adaptation for a Leading Fintech Company

About the client

Our client is a leading point-of-sale payment platform for retailers and consumers across.
The solution offered by the client is omnichannel, with a focus on alternative purchase solutions.

Overview

We advise to not rush to DevOps to be more agile and deliver code faster at the expense of security. Our DevSecOps security service enables your teams to exert influence and make your apps secure within the current CI/CD pipelines. We help you achieve your goals without slowing down your development teams or jeopardizing security.

Business Challenge

Reducing heap time &data inefficiencies

The legacy monolithic architecture of the client made renovating or adding new features to their app extremely complex.
Reducing heap times and data inefficiencies was key to delivering a high-performance app to their existing customers. Due to monolith architecture, several services were running on the same infrastructure like user service, cart management service, payment service, and risk analysis service- making the app slow and unresponsive at times.

Limitations

The lack of transparent codebase ownership across the organization was another challenge. Between the development teams and delivery teams, there was a single codebase of the app, and everything was tied to it, making it difficult to scale. The monolithic architecture also led to security breachers for the payment API once. The client wanted to keep the payment APIs and their code only accessible to limited people for better security.

However, the client lacked naivety with microservices processes and architecture and wanted to rely on a trusted partner to help with the move to Microservices.

Our approach and solution

1. Establishing Microservices Architecture

We established a microservices architecture that enabled our client to scale with its growing user base. Eliminating the interdependence of various services in the monolithic code was a game-changer, and the team replaced the current architecture with Microservices. The entire application was reorganized and decoupled into services that act as individual entities.

2. Deploying product strategy

We established a microservices architecture that enabled our client to scale with its growing user base. Eliminating the interdependence of various services in the monolithic code was a game-changer, and the team replaced the current architecture with Microservices. The entire application was reorganized and decoupled into services that act as individual entities.

3. Deploying data migration

We also deployed a data migration strategy to make the standalone services sovereign. Thanks to the efficiency of Microservices architecture, the infrastructure costs for the client decreased, and the app downtime reduced drastically.

Tech Stack

We have used the lambda function for the different service deployments. AWS Lambda provides pay per use billing method that saves the fixed infrastructure cost incurred due to dedicated compute services.
