Requirement

HDFC Life was looking for a digital transformation solutions partner to help migrate their systems to a newer ecosystem which would make it easier and faster to deploy changes.

Q&I Process Migration using Microservices and DevOps

Solution

RapidValue migrated client’s Q&I process from a legacy core system to a new system environment using Microservices and DevOps.

  • The core system was decoupled to microservices to maintain the same legacy tools and data.
  • Microservices and APIs were developed using Java and Spring Web MVC.
  • Designed and configured Blue-Green deployment to reduce downtime and risk.
  • DevOps integration was implemented using Jenkins.
  • AccuRate, test automation suite by RapidValue was used for the functionality testing and Serenity framework was used for Acceptance testing.
  • Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) was performed using JBehave.

Microservices Architecture

The architecture of the Q&I system evolves regularly. As soon as one implementation is completed, we are ready for the next change. In the past, such iterations of the architecture was quite difficult to achieve as we had to replace large systems. With microservices, we have built an architecture ecosystem that allows the client to change small components at any time without any complex  migrations.
