The Challenge

Revolutionize employee benefits technology with secure microservices

Our client is the employee benefits industry’s first and only technology-enabled PBO (pharmacy benefits optimizer). Due to their customer base growth, they needed to expand and adapt the functionality of their application. This, coupled with an increase in file processing, led the company to rethink the structure of their product. This meant adapting the organization to microservices technologies, changing the way they authenticated users, and redesigning processes for better performance.

This strategy required the incorporation of external collaborators with development knowledge who knew the client’s technology legacy and had the skills and tools to participate in the implementation of new functionalities during the migration to microservices and ensure secure communication throughout the team.

The Solution

Empowering innovation, security, and performance

In order to meet the client’s needs, a team of developers from Allata joined their in-house development team to work together on the maintenance of the existing application, the development of new functionality, and the migration of a part of the application to microservices.

Among others, the tasks that the Allata carried out were:

The Results

Empowering agile development, code excellence, and enhanced security

Allata improved our client’s development processes and code quality by identifying areas of improvement and applying best practices. They streamlined workflows and enabled the client to explore new technologies like Angular. Allata also implemented a secure authentication system and provided valuable documentation for implementing robust security measures.
