Snapshot: A Modern Microservices Architecture Speeds Up Time to Market for Product Launch and Improves Customer Service
A leading global financial institution used Altimetrik’s domain-driven design model to turn a rigid, monolithic platform approach into one that’s driven by API and microservices. The result was an extremely scalable, multi-channel platform with far greater development, integration flexibility, and faster time to market for future product and service launches.
Additionally, engineering processes were transformed with the selection and integration of new DevOps and Cloud capabilities.

Transforming Core Digital Platforms From Rigid and Monolithic to Scalable and Custom
Altimetrik followed a domain-driven design (DDD) model to transition to an API-driven, microservices-based architecture. This gave our financial services client an extremely scalable, multi-channel platform with far greater development and integration flexibility. Additionally, new offerings could be launched on the platform in a much shorter time.
This DDD approach allowed us to foster a close working relationship with business stakeholders, gain a comprehensive understanding of their needs, and effectively deconstruct complex business functions.
Altimetrik also transformed the client’s engineering process from a mini-waterfall SDLC process to a DevOps-enabled process by:
- Consolidating the toolchain and standardizing the branching model
- Implementing a common versioning model from development to production
- Developing pipeline and infrastructure as code for CI/CD
- Implementing pipeline definitions to manage multi-data-center deployments
- Automating security, functional, and integration tests
- Enabling autonomous development teams
Starting with four scrum teams, the engagement quickly expanded to include over 40 teams with 18 different areas of expertise in three locations, demonstrating Altimetrik’s ability to quickly scale to meet the demands of a complex and distributed engagement.
