Leveraging Enterprise Service Bus, APIs, DevOps, & Message Driven Technology

Being able to offer debt management and recovery solutions for consumers and property owners is what Encore Capital is known for. In an effort to ensure those solutions remain competitive and continually updated with feature enhancements, Encore decided it needed to build a flexible and secure business platform that would allow it to effectively serve its huge customer base and engaged Zilker to do so.

Zilker has consistently added value to the Encore middleware team, helping us navigate the IBM stack in regards to DataPower, App Connect, WebSphere MQ, ODM and API Connect.

SOLUTIONS

Micro Service Architecture

Zilker Technology was instrumental in the implementation of the Enterprise Service Bus and Payment Gateway Platform (built on DataPower, MQ, Microservices, and SPA w/ React.js) and delivery of that platform through Continuous Integration/Delivery.

Roadmaps & Blueprints

Encore’s IT organization engaged Zilker to conduct a Blueprint Phase in which the requirements of the platform were reviewed, prioritized, documented, and inserted into an information architecture and microservices strategy used to build out a Middleware roadmap. This roadmap resulted in the development of an Enterprise Service Bus and Payment Gateway platform from APIs, Microservices, and DevOps, and allowed Encore’s IT organization to meet the demands of the business.

Training

Zilker was a key participant in a “Middleware Roadshow” in which Zilker instructors traveled to several domestic and global facilities and delivered custom education and training curriculum to various different groups on Encore’s Application Infrastructure and Application Lifecycle Management teams.
