Case Study | SaaS Cloud Migration & App Modernisation

Monolithic Application Migrated to the Cloud & Modernised to deliver a Scalable & Reliable SaaS Product

Published: 1 November 2021

Business Challenge

EdNVest provides clients with a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform to leverage the often underutilised Education Tax Benefit from the South African Revenue Service (SARS). They assist clients with the administration required to claim this benefit on behalf of their employees – while ensuring tax compliance.

EdNVest (Pty) Ltd approached Tangent Solutions (Pty) Ltd to address the seemingly next to impossible task of assisting with their non-scalable monolithic application, which required modernisation and a platform that could scale with business growth.


The Solution

The aim of the partnership between EdNVest and Tangent Solutions was to deliver a highly scalable modern architecture and platform utilizing a multitude of Azure services to migrate their workloads to the Cloud. 

The solution built by the Tangent team, created a secure and highly scalable system which caters for EdNVest’s current as well as their future needs. The solution built by Tangent Solutions leveraged core Azure technologies such as Azure functions, cognitive services and Azure App Services. 

The solution was built using .Net core and Angular 6 leveraging Azure’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) functions. Tangent Solutions also leveraged Azure’s PaaS functionality to support Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CICD).
