Workers’ Council E-Commerce: A Modernization Saga

Achieving Peak Performance and Unparalleled Compliance Standards


Our client, operates a pioneering e-commerce platform dedicated to workers’ councils, facilitating access to a diverse array of products and services specifically designed to enrich employee welfare. Confronted with the imperative to modernize their technological infrastructure, the platform faced challenges including outdated components, potential security vulnerabilities, and the urgent need to comply with the stringent GDPR guidelines. The absence of an updated system threatened not only the operational efficiency and security of the platform but also its ability to safeguard sensitive user data, thereby jeopardizing customer trust and platform integrity.


“The principal technical challenge revolved around overhauling the platform’s echnology stack without disrupting the user experience. This encompassed updating critical software components, migrating to cloud, and instituting data protection measures.”


The strategy was to revamp the platform with upgraded PHP and MySQL for security. Migrating to MySQL consolidated databases, boosting efficiency. Transitioning from IaaS to Azure PaaS simplified infrastructure, ensuring scalability. GDPR-aligned data anonymization techniques safeguarded privacy. Rigorous testing ensured enhanced performance and compliance.
