Challenges

  • Scalability Dilemma: The monolithic structure limited swift scaling during periods of high demand. Cloud deployment will be costly and challenging to enhance.  

  • Operational Complexity: Managing the monolith caused delays in feature deployment and updates. Regression testing was complex and cumbersome during incremental releases.
     

  • Budgetary Strain: Escalating costs under the monolithic setup affected Actxa's competitiveness.
