Inland Revenue (IR), New Zealand, is undertaking an organization-wide business transformation program to modernize its revenue service. Fundamental to this transformation, is a project to replace the end-of-life middleware software, that manages about 90% of Inland Revenue’s data.
Given the potential business impact derived from success, Inland Revenue adopted an innovative continuous development approach, underpinned by a private Middleware Platform as a Service for Oracle Middleware running on Oracle Exalogic. With Sun Java Composite Application Platform (Java CAPS or JCAPS) facing end of life at the end of 2016, IR decided to migrate from JCAPS to Oracle Fusion Middleware (OFM) 11g/12c.
Inland Revenue engaged DeloitteAsparona as the implementation partner for this large project and adopted Rubicon Red MyST to automate the platform provisioning, code build and deployment aspects of the project.
With dual focus on minimizing risk and cost, IR had an enterprise mandate to lift and shift where possible onto the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud platform running Oracle Fusion Middleware. In addition, to meet the aggressive timelines, the project team adopted a DevOps model for Continuous Development and developed an innovative multi-phased approach for decommissioning the JCAPs environment.
With Rubicon Red MyST, Inland Revenue is able to provision a highly complex Oracle middleware platform across 9 environments, and automate the build, deployment and configuration of over 500 services, delivering significant time and cost savings.
