Flexible Apigee X Migration for Ecommerce Expansion

New Look Logo

New Look, a U.K.-based fashion retailer with 570 outlets globally, saw rapid growth in its digital channels during the pandemic, in particular from its mobile app. To expand on this robust, API-heavy revenue stream, New Look decided to replace its MuleSoft’s AnyPoint API Platform with a Google Cloud Apigee X environment.

To ensure a rapid transition and prevent revenue losses, the migration needed to satisfy several requirements:

  • Seamless, downtime-free transition for a consistent UX
  • Flexible design and billing to support changing workloads
  • Simple integration and security protocols using REST APIs

New Look selected SoftServe to support its migration based on a proven track record of high-quality cloud migrations and a strong proposal, which was developed during several in-person workshops.

“Collaborating with SoftServe barely felt like work. The team was an excellent cultural fit and brought a working environment defined by feedback and support. SoftServe consistently provided us with status updates and stood out from other vendors through seamless handoffs, attentiveness to our business’ needs, and flexible yet reliable scheduling. We were thoroughly impressed by the team’s approach and expertise.” — Ian Mahoney - Technology and Engineering Director, New Look

Seamless Migration to Apigee X

To ensure business continuity and mitigate impact for New Look’s mobile-based customers, SoftServe strategized the migration to have full flexibility in routing traffic through MuleSoft Flows or Apigee implemented proxies. SoftServe utilized a three-phase approach for the deployment and subsequent migration of APIs.

  • Foundation: API migration planning, solution design, and base Apigee X environment provisioning
  • Implementation: Re-architecting, API implementation, publishing, security configuration
  • Go-Live: Complete launch together with New Look

Increased revenue with flexible cloud environment

Equipped with an Apigee X environment to support its ecommerce expansion, New Look will benefit from:

  • Accelerated new feature rollout with decoupled and reusable components
  • Scalability and flexibility by moving integration logic to microservices
  • Reduction in license costs by retiring MuleSoft products
  • Enhanced security and simplified integration through Apigee X
