Erasing Technical Debt for a Major Dot Com

When a well-established dot com recognized it was falling behind competitors entering the market, it partnered with Redapt to revolutionize the way it developed products.

In a nutshell

The problem

The company relied on outdated applications and development tech, which led to major inefficiencies.

The solution

Redapt worked with the company to deploy containers, allowing it to move towards a DevOps culture.

The outcome

Adopting a DevOps culture and processes greatly accelerated the company’s ability to develop and deploy software.

Moment of clarity

Through workshops and a full assessment of the company's current architecture and
development process, we determined they should embrace a DevOps culture.


What the company needed

Years of technical debt was limiting the company’s ability to match the speed and efficiency of competitors coming onto the market.

To stay competitive, the company needed to speed up development, rethink their architecture, and change their overall development philosophy.

Our recommendation

  • Deployed containers to allow developers to iterate and deploy software several times a day.
  • Created a technology stack capable of handling the very large data sets the company relied upon.
  • Designed racks to deploy infrastructure at rack scale and achieve efficiency with CICD automation.

The end result

Through these recommendations, along with an overall shift toward a DevOps culture, the company was able to:

  • Greatly increase efficiency

    in how they brought new products to market.

  • Innovate more freely

    with the ability to quickly roll back software if problem occurred.

  • Better store and manage data

    and increase their competitiveness in the market.
