The Group Company is a leading content and consumer group in Malaysia and Southeast Asia with a focus on four pillars, namely, watch, listen, read, and shop. The company had an existing Metadata System (MS), which they wanted to redevelop and enhance to meet the requirements. They also wished to rewrite the entire code using open source technologies.

The existing system faced performance issues that were affecting the user experience and required a fix. Owing to the business needs, this system required a major enhancement to new features, enabling single sign-on, ability to integrate with more internal/external systems using RESTful APIs.

The company also wanted to roll out new features at a fast pace by leveraging Agile / Scrum Delivery Methodology and setting up an automated DevOps pipeline over the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud infrastructure. The customer also wanted to leverage AWS for its benefits like managed infrastructure, application services, scalability and fault tolerance.
