The Challenge

Sphere Helps 90 Seconds Upgrade for Global Growth

Sphere’s involvement began with the aim to enhance the 90 Seconds team, focusing on resolving pressing concerns related to product performance, stability, and maintainability. This initial collaboration eventually evolved into a long-lasting partnership that persists today.

One of the major challenges faced was the reliance on a legacy software solution within 90 Seconds, which posed a hindrance to their long-term global business strategy. To overcome this limitation, a comprehensive approach was necessary, beginning with a technical assessment and followed by the development of a gradual architecture redesign plan in order to meet the growing demands of the business.

Working closely with 90 Seconds’ internal engineering team, Sphere proposed a meticulous and phased software architecture redesign plan. This approach ensured that the implementation occurred seamlessly, without any interruptions to ongoing business operations.

The Solution

Sphere Transforms Legacy System for Client’s Success

Sphere began the project under tight time constraints, strategically commencing with the implementation of new GraphQL APIs atop the existing codebase and database structures. This initial step was instrumental in achieving our goal of enhancing the user experience by decoupling the legacy backend application from new frontend apps.

Next, Sphere focused on meeting the demands of our primary B2B customers by seamlessly integrating the existing system with external authentication services. Simultaneously, Sphere collaborated with the client to revamp their Business Intelligence (BI) pipelines, resulting in significant improvements in the performance and accuracy of their internal reporting services.

Presently, Sphere’s ongoing efforts center around the crucial task of breaking down the legacy monolith application into a modern microservices architecture. This transition promises greater agility and scalability for the client’s operations.

Additionally, Sphere identified a significant cost-saving opportunity for the client related to their legacy cloud infrastructure. By meticulously reviewing and optimizing the infrastructure cost, Sphere successfully migrated their systems into an orchestrated containerized Kubernetes environment. This migration not only reduced expenses but also bolstered system stability, simplified the release process, and improved load balancing for a more streamlined and cost-effective operation.
