About Customer

What was the goal of the project

Increasing costs of the maintenance of the old legacy core system prompted the client to transform their core application architecture. The goal was to migrate existing policies from 3 legacy core systems to INSIS v10 solution.

The client also wanted to improve their sales frontend, which before the project had its own product definition. After the project, the target was to have the product only in the core system implemented and the frontend should read product definition through web services.

 

What solution was implemented

With the mixed team we implemented the INSIS v10 core system. During our work on the project, 4 were introduced. Then customer with his team continues to add more products to the new core system. We created a new Webservice layer for INSIS, which enables the frontend to read the product configuration directly from the core. This means that after a new product version is implemented in the core, it is ready to use without any development of the sales frontend.

During the project we also supported a minor version upgrade of INSIS.

The Customer decided to migrate policies on a renewal basis – we are taking part in this area.

The Customer has already defined a good CI/CD process for the whole company. In cooperation with the admin team of the Customer, Sollers admins created a fully automated code deployment with QA process which made the release cycle significantly faster. During the project we maintained over 10 environments plus Production, all on on-premise.
