Digitizing Business Processes and Online Offerings
If there's a company that understands the power of digital transformation, it's the Federal Employment Agency (FEA).
To understand the market and offer tailor-made and need-based services for its employers, the FEA was laser focused on modernizing their business processes, expanding their online offerings, and deploying user-friendly tools. While this offered many opportunities for the FEA, it posed an immense challenge for its IT team.
As Ralf Ernst, Senior IT Architect, explained, "[We were utilizing] monolithic applications which took a large amount of resources. The switchover...to microservices was necessary to effectively manage the now numerous smaller systems and services needed for our 2020 initiative."
"We are producing more and more business processes electronically," said Ernst. "With the introduction of a containers-as-a-service platform, we are creating a basis for further flexible development of the [FEA's] e-government activities."

When searching for a new solution, efficiency, assignability, and flexibility were key factors in making their decision. Because the FEA was charged with modernizing the business, while still remaining in compliance with security standards and other regulations, D2iQ was the perfect fit.
From Monolithic Applications to Microservices
With D2iQ, the FEA introduced a private cloud in order to meet their online requirements through performance, availability, and faster deployment.
After successfully implementing D2iQ for their digital transformation initiatives, deployment costs were significantly reduced and the flexibility of use significantly increased. Today, D2iQ is the primary container platform the agency leverages to use IT resources efficiently.
