1050x700_audit_ca_site

Industry
  • Banking & Finance (a major French commercial bank)

 

Challenge
  • Working closely with a team responsible for defining the architecture models for applications and infrastructure services

Context

We worked for an entity that manages the infrastructure requirements of a major French banking group.


We reported to a team responsible for defining the architecture models for applications and infrastructure services in order to meet availability, continuity and resilience goals across all technical and development aspects.


Solution

  • Advice and assistance with development projects and programs;
  • Participation in architecture committees;
  • Evangelising best practice in terms of IT resilience for applications and infrastructure hosted on premise and in the public cloud within development teams;
  • Use of cloud providers' managed services;
  • Breaking down applications into microservices;
  • Setting up containerisation with Docker and orchestration with Kubernetes.

Technologies

  • Docker

  • AWS

  • IBM Cloud

  • Kubernetes


Keys to success

  1. Implementing a microservices architecture to build highly scalable and resilient applications with optimum access times;
  2. Proposing toolchains to automate the "Build – Test – Release” processes by integrating security and quality into a DevSecOps approach, in advance;
  3. Introducing a continuous improvement process for “People, Process, Product” aspects.
