Modularization of a Monolithic Legacy Application though New Architecture and UI

We designed and verified a new architecture for a provider in the logistics sector, enabling incremental migration from two monolithic legacy applications to state-of-the-art modules. We supported risk reduction though various proofs of concept – particularly for the seamless integration of a modern React UI into the existing ExtJS application, as well as to verify backend integration mechanisms.

Introduction of a Cloud Microservice-Platform

We supported a client in building a microservice platform as part of a worldwide technology program. The platform is based on AWS and Kubernetes, which act as a blueprint for new service development and serve as a means to move the concern towards agile processes and Dev Ops.

The implementation of an automated, cloud-based CI/CD pipeline and templates for service development and deployment processes allow services to be delivered in a quality-controlled as well as cost-efficient way.

Another colleague spoke on the topic "FOSSology - Two New Approaches for Licence Scanning" at the Linux Foundation's Open Compliance Summit in Yokohama. TNG attended the Software Quality Days in Vienna, giving a lecture "How machines learn to code - Machine learning on source code".

Colleagues also gave talks at various User Groups: "Artificial Intelligence in JavaScript using Tensorflow.js" at the Munich NodeJS User Group and the Hacking Machine Learning User Group, as well as "How we run Flink on Kubernetes at Telefónica NEXT" at the Apache Flink Meetup Munich.

Payment process improvement

We helped a client meet the challenge of successfully processing all transactions even during periods with especially high order volumes, thus avoiding revenue loss.

To achieve this, we modularized existing code for connecting payment service providers and added two new providers.

The rejuvenated payment process now provides a failover for individual unavailable payment methods, thus delivering the required high availability while at the same time reducing costs.

TNG organized the MuniHac Haskell Hackathon together with Well Typed and assisted in the organization of the SwaCamp, an unconference about software architecture. Both events took place on TNG premises. Additionally, colleagues organized the Software Architecture Munich Meetup.

A colleague gave a talk "Preventing manipulation of enterprise databases using public blockchains" at the XITASO DEV XCHANGE in Augsburg. Another colleague gave a lecture on the topic "Augmented Reality in Your Browser using Vanilla JavaScript" at the DevTalksJr in Bucharest. TNG was also represented at the Devoxx Belgium in Antwerp with the talk "Stereoscopic Style Transfer AI - Art is not what you see?".

Customized Product Sorting

TNG developed a sorting algorithm for one of the largest European online shopping communities in the fashion market. The algorithm reorders the displayed products in real time, taking into account the community's buying behaviour as well as that of the individual customer. Visitors to the shop are shown the products that fit their individual size profile first, so that customers no longer need to use a size filter to find a suitable garment.

The size profile management can be accessed, thanks to AWS, via a simple REST API. To ensure the best possible performance, an elastic search plugin was also developed. This is installed directly in the shop system and is responsible for sorting the results list.

Development of a Trade Convention App

Using React and Node.js, we created a web application to accompany product sampling at trade conventions for a large engineering company.

Visitors were able to use the application on tablets or mobile devices. The display was optimized for various screen sizes using responsive design. Users rated various product qualities, while the currently selected rating was attractively visualized. Afterwards the application processed and analysed the answers, presenting users with a comparison of their rating with the average of all previous ratings.
