KSA-based FinTech startup


KSA-based FinTech startup, aiming for outstanding rapid development and steadfast reliability in application operations, sought to revolutionize its digital services.


In 2023, following a successful funding round, the startup was poised to establish an internal development team to expedite new feature releases and enhance service delivery.


The mission was to streamline and optimize the project into a cohesive, high-performing cloud infrastructure, ensuring adherence to local regulatory standards.

Story of transformation

When ITSyndicate embarked on this journey with the KSA-based FinTech startup, we were met with a scenario far from ideal: the project had been initially set up by developers, not cloud engineers. This common oversight meant that the application was functional and needed to be optimized for performance, security, and compliance. The app services were scattered across different hosting providers, leading to disjointed operations and a complete disregard for the region’s stringent regulatory requirements.

Understanding the critical nature of financial services, we recognized the immediate need for a strategic overhaul. Our approach was twofold: first, to consolidate the disparate services into a cohesive, regulated framework, and second, to implement best practices to pave the way for rapid and secure development.

Our team swiftly moved into action, leveraging our cloud architecture and DevOps methodologies expertise. We transitioned the startup's infrastructure to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), specifically utilizing the newly launched me-central2 region in Dammam to ensure compliance with local regulations. This move centralized the application services and significantly improved performance and security.

But we didn’t stop there. Recognizing the importance of agility and efficiency in FinTech, we introduced automated CI/CD pipelines, enabling the seamless transition from development to deployment. This automation was complemented by implementing robust monitoring solutions, ensuring that any potential issues could be identified and addressed swiftly, minimizing downtime, and maintaining the trust of the startup's clients.

The transformation was profound. Within a short span, the project was not just back on track but was now on the rails of rapid development and innovation. We instilled a culture of continuous improvement, where automation, monitoring, and best practices became the norm, not the exception.
