Jurong Port was ready to move ahead in becoming the ‘Next Generation Multipurpose Port’. However, in line with the company's digital transformation roadmap, it was evident that the existing technological infrastructure in place over the past two decades required a complete overhaul to fuel business agility and growth.
This involved careful consideration of an API-centric technology that enabled the use of an API gateway to breakdown the prior giant monolith application into microservices that guaranteed business scalability, easy deployment, and management, providing Jurong Port a total solution to monetize and capitalize on its digital assets.
WSO2 API Manager is one of the few products on offer that allows for integration between the API gateway on the OpenID Connect (OIDC) / OAuth2 authentication server. After careful consideration, WSO2 was selected as the API gateway of choice given its Java-based technology and excellent extensibility. Also, the open source business model enables product trials before subscription to support services.
During the staging phase of deployment, Jurong Port did a parallel run of their monolith application choosing to migrate key business functions into the new model consisting of an Angular-based front end and a SpringBoot based microservices backend with WSO2 API Manager as the gateway.
WSO2 Identity Server was then deployed as the key manager for authentication and authorization. The business made a conscious decision to deploy WSO2 Identity Server to meet the industry’s requirement for a safe, reliable, and secure identity access management system.
Overall, we are heading in the right direction with WSO2, as the technology is key to Jurong Port in our digital transformation journey."
