One of the most prestigious universities in the world with more than 20,000 students had a problem in their IT architecture that they wanted to solve.
In this project we will see how in three months they were able to integrate more than 50 different softwares to convert a monolithic structure into a service oriented architecture.
The biggest problem of the university, is that over the years it had incorporated more than 50 different software applications from different providers that were not able to communicate with one another and had little documentation. With more than 20,000 students, not counting the entire university staff, the complexity of the university’s systems was such that it is comparable to that of a city.
Also, the client’s need to have the project done in three months added an additional challenge.
The client knew that WSO2 could be a good solution to their problem, because although it was a big change, it could be done in a modular way thanks to its design. In addition, by making use of the Chakray Solution Accelerator, a solution that can normally take months to deploy can be reduced to days.
Solutions/technologies used to make this project a big success
