Regtech about

Our client, a leading provider of educational services in the European market was finding it challenging to manage its portfolio of technology solutions, which were used by nearly 2 million students and teachers on a daily basis. We helped our client to manage and modernize the current application portfolio, and build new, high-performance, mission-critical applications. Thanks to coMakeIT’s strategic partnership, our client has successfully fulfilled its ambition of transforming into an integrated, cloud-native, EdTech platform offering personalized education and learning services to a broad spectrum of students and supporting ecosystem.

Regtech challenges

Over the years, our client has built a portfolio of applications (both internally and through acquisitions) with an ambition to become the end-to-end software platform for the education sector. However, it had to deal with the following key challenges:

  • Maintain and support aging technology stacks across multiple product lines
  • Modernize legacy applications and support cloud deployments
  • New feature development to keep up with changing regulations and market needs
  • Innovate and transform into a provider of personalized, student-centric learning solutions


Regtech solution

  • Building a customized, high-quality team with skills in diverse technologies such as Delphi, Java, Javascript, Docker, Kubernetes etc.
  • Re-architecture of key applications using new paradigms such as event-sourcing and CQRS
  • Quickly scaling up to a 40-member operation spread across multiple scrum teams that are fully integrated with the clients’ native teams
  • Adopting an integrated process with a unified workflow supported by tools and automation for continuous delivery and frequent releases

In a very short time, coMakeIT succeeded in building a high-performance development and delivery organization that is relied upon by the client as an engine of innovation.
