Solution

With a clearly defined, well-researched and coherent strategy, the development team has initiated the migration project.

Solution

Initial Assessment

  • We have decided to switch to a Spring boot application.
  • Since DB2 database was not an option anymore they have utilized PostgreSQL as the new database.
Initial Assessment

Goals

Improve the flexibility and maintainability of the application without compromising the security and reduce the total cost of ownership. Integration with the IT tech stack was another issue to be addressed. Operating on cloud unfolds outstanding benefits for organizations.

  • Decreasing governance related costs
  • Introducing on demand cloud services
  • Improving time to market
  • Improving delivery quality and security
Goals

Challenges

Cloud migration introduces its own challenges. Dev team was responsible from migrating an application that runs on Websphere, uses DB2 as database, and implemented with Java EE platform technology to a modern environment.The team had to take the following into account:

  • Deciding on the workloads to be moved and the order of migration
  • Maintaining the reliability and performance of business-critical services
  • Implementing appropriate levels of security controls and regulatory compliance
Challenges

Results

The product was successfully migrated from legacy environment to Cloud Foundry platform.

  • Application maintenance, development and integration are now much easier and faster.
  • New features and bug fixes can be deployed to Integration and Production environments very quickly, sometimes on the same day after the request is made. Before it took at least a couple of weeks.
  • The deployment frequency of the application was improved %67 (from 3 weeks to 1 week in average) in 1 year.
  • The cost of running the application, dropped by a large margin, since new environment and the services it provides is much cheaper.
