  17. Problems We Faced

  18. Development Process • Enterprise was a customer led product •

    Changing priorities based on customer requirements and the current live projects • Many different versions of the code live
  19. Different Tech Stacks! • Two teams • Have to do

    common integrations twice • Increased hosting costs • New developers more likely to be productive on Connect as we are unable to hire with SilverStripe knowledge
  20. Stripe SCA twice

  21. Integrations

  22. Our Solutions

  23. Global Leaders Global Solutions Development Process • Enterprise became product

    led • Both Connect and Enterprise are run using Scrum in two-weekly Sprints • Requirements from across the business are properly captured, triaged and added to a prioritised Product Backlog • All Enterprise customers place onto a single version
  24. Global Solutions Putting Users First • Move to a single

    tech stack not that simple as we cannot abandon either product • A complete rewrite is while it would be fun, would be unnecessary • Another solution needed Different Tech Stacks!
  25. Different Tech Stacks! • Move to a single tech stack

    not that simple as we cannot abandon either product • A complete rewrite is while it would be fun it would be unnecessary • Another solution needed
  26. Code Separation • SOA? We can write services to do

    common tasks • Libraries - we can share code between the two products. Both frontend components and backend libraries
  27. Global Leaders Global Solutions Code Separation • With a fully

    featured Enterprise API new booking journeys will use our React code from Connect • We have created a React Component Library to reuse elements we create across these products
  28. Global Solutions Putting Users First Code Separation • Our integrations

    will use one common interface and offload tasks that don’t need to be completed immediately • AWS Lambda reading from SQS queues; pushing integration code away from each product and into a central easily testable codebase
  29. Development teams • Low Coupling and High Cohesion • Instead

    of having developers assigned to a product we will assign them to areas which best fits their knowledge
  30. Development teams • An integrations team • A payments team

    • A booking journey team • An administration systems teams
