Development of client solutions

Over time, NMH has developed its online titles in various programming languages. This required an individual approach to each of them. As a result, the number of services has increased and the requirements on administration or possible modifications have been scaled up. Therefore, we have moved the development of existing services and applications to a containerized environment, which has yielded countless benefits. The main one is a single development environment that ensures consistency from the development itself to the production environment and allows for very quick implementation of a new version or an entirely new service.

Solution/approach by DIGMIA

  • Installation and configuration of a containerized environment
  • Containerization of existing applications
  • Best practices on how to develop new applications
  • Training and lectures for internal employees to utilize the potential of the new solution to the maximum extent possible

Advantages of a solution for the client

  • The simple administration of an application in a single environment, regardless of the technology (programming language)
  • Scalability of the entire infrastructure
  • Operation of applications independent of a data-centre
