Challenges

The migration of the CBS UI to ReactJS faces significant challenges, primarily due to its complexity with over 100 screens and 48 modules, each with unique functionalities and dynamically changing outputs for the users. Additionally, it was crucial to maintain business continuity, ensuring the CBS operates smoothly during the transition, possibly requiring phased migration. Performance optimization was also key, with a focus on efficient loading, responsive design, and handling high transaction volumes in the new ReactJS application.

Solution

To effectively manage the complex migration of the CBS UI to ReactJS, adopting Agile methodologies for structured project management was essential. This enabled us to tackle the project in manageable sprints. A phased migration approach ensured business continuity, allowing for parallel system operation. Emphasizing performance optimization through ReactJS's capabilities and regular testing was crucial for handling high transaction volumes. Additionally, a comprehensive testing strategy was implemented, including automated tests. Finally, implemented user training programs and feedback loops facilitated smoother adaptation to the new UI. Maintaining strong communication with all stakeholders and designing the system with scalability and future-proofing in mind was also key to the project’s success. This systematic and highly organized approach not only made the system easy to use but also enhanced its overall functionality.
