A year in the life of moving to open source agile integration

Watch recording from October 1, 2019

Spark is one of the first organizations in New Zealand using agile integration organization-wide. When adopting agile ways of working, it is critical to change systems to agile standards, too. Spark started its enterprise integration using Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform. In addition to resilience and scalability, the other key impetus for moving to an open source framework was to reduce costs from an existing proprietary platform that constrained the team's delivery schedule, which limited their delivery time. Having an in-house Red Hat integration development team made the migration more efficient.

Join this webinar to hear how Spark and Red Hat navigated Spark's company-wide agile transformation and migrated its integration platform from a legacy, proprietary solution to a container-based, open source solution at the same time. Specifically, we'll discuss 4 key phases of the project:

  • Learning the new platform and discovering the migration approach.
  • Going live with a minimum viable product (MVP).
  • Migrating services in bulk.
  • Implementing a channel-specific, microservices-based application API.
