Transforming Investment Strategies: A Case Study on the Migration of a Legacy Mutual Fund Application 

Business Problem/ Scope of Work

The Financial Services and Banking Company was facing a major business challenge with their legacy mutual fund application which was outdated and unable to keep up with the demands of the business and its customers. The current application had poor performance, scalability, and reliability. Additionally, the application lacked the necessary features and functionality to effectively manage client portfolios, such as the ability to place buy, sell, or exchange orders. This was causing a major problem for the mutual fund managers to serve their clients effectively.
To address this challenge, Pronix IT Solutions team was engaged to modernize and upgrade the legacy application. The goal was to provide a more efficient and user-friendly platform for portfolio management, which will enable the mutual fund managers to better serve their clients and improve their business performance.

Business Solution

The business solution for this case study is to migrate the legacy application to a new, modern system known as CONNECT app. The CONNECT app will replace the three legacy applications (PBA-Private Banking only US region, JPMA -US Based Trading of own security mutual funds, IPB-International Private Bank) into a single application. This will provide better user experience by having different lines of business (LOBs) instead of users accessing the whole application. Based on user access, specific LOBs will be redirected. The new system will also provide a new user interface design solution for easy graphical user interface (GUI). To ensure continuity of service during the migration, the legacy application will be maintained until the new application is ready to go live.


Technical Solutions

The technical solution for this case study includes the implementation of React JS, Forms, Events, Keys, Router, and custom reusable React components. A reusable component library was created and application state was managed using Redux. React functions, reducers, and actions were created for state management using Redux. Jest framework was used for creating test cases for React components.
Webpack was used as a module bundler and Babel was used for compiling and building a component-based React architecture. SASS preprocessing was used for configuring tasks. Spring JDBC custom queries were utilized to save and update the database using REST API from UI operations such as adding and deleting. REST API endpoints were created for end-users to perform create, update, delete operations through the frontend to the database via Axios API calls to the React frontend. Kafka producer and consumer applications were implemented on a Kafka cluster setup with the help of Zookeeper.
Spring Kafka API calls were used to process messages smoothly on the Kafka cluster setup. RESTful resources were developed using Rest Template and consumed REST from various vendors. Completable Future was implemented using Java 8 for parallel calls for microservices. Spring config server was used for centralized configuration and Splunk was used for centralized logging.
Concourse and Jenkins were used for Microservices deployment. Swagger UI (JSON/YAML) was integrated and integration tests were written along with REST documentation.
