The Challenge was

One of our clients, a large global third-party logistics provider, relies heavily on a web application for regular business transactions with customers. They used a monolithic frontend architecture that posed many business and technical challenges, some of which are –

Complex architecture and code

Extremely difficult to scale

Limited choice of technology

Difficult to update, test and maintain

Lengthy operations

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.


The Client received Outputs like
