We assessed and got to work

Considering the current complexity and challenges for these applications, Emtec’s architecture team evaluated various options and proposed a micro frontend-based design to break the applications into smaller micro apps based on the business functionality and context. These micro apps are developed and deployed independently. Different teams have end to end ownership of each micro app, providing flexibility in terms of technology and deployment timetable. As these apps are developed separately, the test and release cycles have reduced, enabling faster feature deployment.

And the client received outputs like

Migrating from monolithic to micro apps resulted in numerous benefits for the client:

• Allowed multiple feature teams to work seamlessly with end-to-end ownership of development, test & deployment

• Offered ability to deploy apps without impacting other apps in the same portal

• Each team has ownership of individual apps ensuring 100% test coverage

• Gives flexibility to teams in terms of choosing the most suitable technology and infrastructure

• No dependency on the development and deployment cycles of other apps

• Drastic reduction in testing scope

• Flexibility to quickly build and release new apps or features in response to changing business needs

• Individual micro app failure doesn’t affect other apps ensuring business continuity

The client won

• Modernized frontend architecture

• Reduction in Dev and QA time and costs

• Faster time to market

• On-demand feature deployment

• Improved customer confidence

The technologies that saved the day

Single-spa.js

React

Backbone.js

One of the benefits of working with an implementation partner is they did a lot of the mobile heavy lifting, which is what they are good at.
