MODERNIZING DATA ARCHITECTURE
Enterprise IT
you can teach legacy architecture new tricks
An enterprise project planning system was extremely successful in the marketplace, but based on a traditional single database transactional data architecture. Their new marquee client required the system to produce events to fit into a larger distributed system. One problem: there was no good place in the system to produce them.
Solution
  • The existing system architecture couldn't scale in its current form to accommodate the new event handling requirement from their client.
  • Utilizing Change Data Capture on the underlying database, Expero staff built a data pipeline to process these low level changes into high level domain events, designed and implemented a message bus and topic protocol, unlocking millions in contingent license fees.
“We just signed a $16,000,000 deal, and now our system has to integrate into an event-oriented architecture.”
