Success story: This is how we helped Mutua Madrileña

Introduction of a work methodology based on continuous delivery

The challenge

Within its Digital Transformation strategy, Mutua Madrileña, one of the leading insurance companies, with more than 11 million customers, wanted to update and extend its IT platform.

The objective? To introduce a work methodology based on continuous delivery, built on pillars that could guarantee quality and confidence in the produced software and the reduction of time-to-market.

To that effect, it was necessary to adapt and redesign the architecture components of existing applications, integrating in them transversal aspects such as security, monitoring, aggregation of logs, implementation of standards and quality metrics (KPI) and the governance of architecture.

Our solution

From Profile, we proposed to Mutua an integral solution based on five epics: Application Architecture, Automation, Quality, Security and Governance of Architecture.

Application Architecture

  • Standardization of application runtimes on OpenShift Container Platform
  • Evolution of web application archetypes and revision of shared libraries
  • Definition of coexistence strategy between the two architecture models (legacy and new)
  • Establishment of monitoring and logging mechanisms
  • Modernize project documentation utilities
  • Redesign the configuration management system

Automation

  • Automatic creation of resources of the different tools of the ecosystem
    • Gitlab / Bitbucket: the creation of code repositories associated with applications
    • Kiuwan and Sonar: static code analysis
    • Jenkins: the generation of declarative pipelines
    • OpenShift Container Platform: assets such as BuildConfig, DeploymentConfig or ConfigMaps
  • Definition of Declarative Pipelines in Jenkins
  • Definition and parameterization of the resources required by application in the different environments
  • Real-time refresh automation of configuration properties and secrets
  • Outreach actions to promote and improve the quality of developments
  • Developer’s portal
  • Generation and publication of project documentation and bookstores.

Quality

  • Determine dissemination actions aimed at improving quality
  • Analyze the performance measurement needs of the applications and their inclusion in the pipeline
  • Preparation of quality guides with recommendations and good practices on testing
  • Regulation of acceptance blocking thresholds
  • Configuration of e2e testing platform for the execution of functional tests

Security

  • Secure development
  • SSO
  • Security in distributed applications

Government of Architecture

  • Mechanisms of publication and configuration of Architecture components
  • Confiscation mechanisms of architecture bookstores
  • Control systems for the correct monitoring of the architecture
