Being already a strategic partner for MediaMarktSaturn and understanding the existing landscape of applications, Accesa was directly involved in creating the system's architecture. In terms of architecture, we helped the company to define business flows, that would make possible a seamless integration of the new OMS, thus maximising the features that the OMS platform brings to each country.
With competences in Sterling development, integration, testing, and devops, our team managed to create a custom solution that would respond accordingly to the business needs.
Due to the complexity and the particularities of each country, in a consultative approach, our teams focused on the client’s life cycle business flows (that includes Home Delivery's, Pick Up's, Returns, Modifications, Exchanges, and many more). This enabled us to focus on providing an end-to-end solution with a positive impact on the business flow. In a proactive endeavour, we have created a performance testing framework that identifies the current state of the implementation and highlights sensitive areas that could be negatively impacted by the high traffic. This allowed faster response to eventual critical situations that may have appeared during or after the implementation.
We used our know-how in areas like branching, improving code quality, CI/CD. Always focused on the need for high customisation, we have developed a new solution from scratch that responds to the company’s specific needs.
Relying on the API architecture we enabled automation and performance to a framework that supports a fast and scalable release plan. Our teams used their knowledge both on enterprise service bus (ESB) and on API design, thus making the transition to the “API first” approach smother.
Also, to reduce time and complexity of new environment set-up, the application was containerised using Docker and Vagrant. For better performance, we implemented an automation process that undergoes the repeating and long-lasting manual configuration for new countries and eventual stores set-up in those countries.
