A Next-Generation Online Experience
Retail | Journey to Enterprise Agility
BJSS built the new solution upon an Open Source software stack with an AWS Cloud hosted solution. This delivered a scalable platform to suit the user demand whilst managing costs by scaling with varying demand based on live sporting events, while the Open Source technologies selected met or exceeded the performance of their COTS alternatives.
We delivered the project using our Queen’s Award-winning delivery approach Enterprise Agile. We also collaborated closely with Sporting Life’s editorial, technical and managed service teams. A Continuous Integration and Continuous Test approach ensured support across a wide range of browser and mobile platforms.
The delivery ensured that the Sportinglife.com service remained scalable, high-performance and feature-rich. Substantial performance improvements created a level of service which is unmatched by Sporting Life’s competition.
With entire service being migrated to the public Cloud, the flexibility required to accommodate spikes in demand seen during popular sporting events is catered for. The initial iteration of the new Sporting Life website was delivered two months ahead of the Cheltenham Festival, one of the biggest highlights of the horse racing calendar.
