As technology evolves, organisations need to stay competitive and responsive to the changing business landscape. One significant transformation that can propel an organisation forward is transitioning from legacy systems to a cloud-native architecture. NiuPay stands at the forefront, specialising in end-to-end re-architecture of applications and business processes, ensuring modernisation that empowers your staff to work more effectively.

What is cloud-native?

Cloud-native is an approach to building and running applications that fully leverage the advantages of the cloud computing model. It’s about speed and agility, where applications are built in containers, are dynamically managed, and have the ability to scale on demand. These applications are resilient, manageable, and observable, giving the ability to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimal toil.

What is re-architecture?

Re-architecture is the process of fundamentally transforming an existing system or application’s structure, design, and underlying technology stack. This transformation is aimed at aligning the system with evolving business requirements, emerging technologies, or to address performance, security, and scalability challenges. It involves rethinking how components interact, employing modern development practices, and often embracing cloud-native concepts. Through re-architecture, organisations can revitalise legacy systems and unleash newfound capabilities, efficiencies, and resilience.

Legacy Platforms

Are these some of the challenges that your organisation is facing?

1. Rapid technological evolution

Keeping up with the ever-changing technological landscape requires a flexible core platform. Traditional infrastructure limits the ability to adapt and scale as per market demands.

2. Data integrity and reporting

Maintaining data integrity and generating meaningful business intelligence reports can be cumbersome on on-premises systems.

3. Skills gap

A shortage of skilled resources proficient in delivering cloud-first solutions poses challenges in adapting to new technologies.

4. Customer expectations

Modern customers expect 24/7 availability and the flexibility to interact with services at their convenience.

5. Service quality and efficiency

The need to enhance service quality and reduce cycle times is a challenge when dealing with legacy systems.

6. Technology and process debt

Decades-old legacy systems accumulate technology and process debts that are difficult to manage and update.

7. Operational efficiency and compliance

Enhancing operational efficiency while maintaining high standards of data security and compliance is challenging.

8. Infrastructure scalability

Legacy systems often hinder the growth, expansion, and adaptation of infrastructure to meet business goals.

The NiuPay re-architecture process

Phase 1

Assessment and Planning Phase

Our needs analysis focuses on thoroughly understanding the current IT infrastructure, identifying inefficiencies in existing hardware, software, and network configurations. We evaluate how these systems support service delivery, considering user experience and service level agreements. A critical part of this analysis is reviewing compliance requirements and the current security posture, identifying potential vulnerabilities and establishing the needs for a secure cloud environment.
In this stage, we identify systems that would benefit most from cloud migration, focusing on scalability, flexibility, and potential for improved efficiency. A cost-benefit analysis is conducted to weigh the long-term operational efficiencies against the costs of migration. Risk assessment is also crucial, as it helps prioritise the migration process based on business impact and technical complexity.
We recommend a phased migration approach to minimise disruptions and facilitate a smooth transition. The migration plan includes a comprehensive blueprint for re-architecting current infrastructure and applications in the cloud. It covers cloud service selection, data handling strategies, and legacy system integration. A robust compliance and security plan, aligned with cloud security best practices, is integral to ensuring data protection and system integrity throughout the migration.
Phase 2

Migration and Implementation Phase

During application re-architecture, we transform traditional applications into a microservices architecture, enhancing their scalability and resilience. This redesign enables quicker deployment and updates, making applications more adaptable to changing needs. This phase is crucial for leveraging the full potential of cloud-native features and ensuring that applications are optimised for cloud environments.
Data migration involves securely transferring data from existing systems to the cloud. We prioritise data integrity and minimal downtime, ensuring a seamless transition. This step is carefully managed to maintain data accuracy and accessibility throughout the migration process, with a focus on securing data during transfer and in its new cloud environment.
In this phase, we integrate a variety of AWS cloud services to enhance the functionality and efficiency of the migrated systems. Services like AWS Lambda, Amazon S3, and AWS RDS are utilised for serverless computing, scalable storage, and efficient database management, respectively. This integration is key to realising the operational benefits of cloud-native architecture, including improved performance, scalability, and cost-effectiveness.
Phase 3

Optimisation and Management Phase

We implement CI/CD pipelines to automate testing and deployment, enhancing the efficiency and reliability of application updates. This continuous integration and delivery model allows for rapid, consistent updates and maintenance, ensuring that cloud-native applications are always up-to-date and performing optimally.
Our approach includes continuous monitoring of cloud services to optimize performance, cost, and scalability. We use advanced tools to track and analyse system performance, making adjustments as needed to ensure the cloud infrastructure is running efficiently and effectively, aligning with the organisation's evolving needs.
Maintaining robust security in a cloud-native environment is paramount. We implement comprehensive security measures, including identity and access management, data encryption, and regular security audits. This ensures that the cloud infrastructure complies with relevant standards and regulations, maintaining the highest levels of data protection and system integrity.
Phase 4

Training and Support Phase

We provide extensive training to government staff on the new cloud-native systems. This training ensures that the staff is well-versed with the new technology and can efficiently utilize the cloud-based tools and applications. The training program is tailored to different levels of technical proficiency, ensuring a smooth transition for all employees.
Our engagement doesn't end with deployment. We offer ongoing support and maintenance services to ensure that the cloud systems operate smoothly. This includes regular updates, troubleshooting, and performance optimization, ensuring that the cloud infrastructure evolves in line with the organization's needs and industry advancements.
We establish a feedback and improvement loop with the organization. This process involves regularly gathering feedback from the staff and users, analyzing it, and implementing necessary changes or improvements to the cloud systems. This ongoing dialogue helps in fine-tuning the services to better match the operational needs and user expectations, ensuring continuous improvement in service delivery.
