Setting a standard for member experience

We helped a global standards organization build a cloud-native microservices-based platform to store and share data on billions of products with members.


One of the world’s leading retail standards organizations.


Build a 24x7 cloud-based platform capable of storing and sharing data on billions of products.

Tools and technologies

Java, Python, NodeJS, .NET, Azure PostgreSQL, Azure SQL, MongoDB, Redis, Azure DevOps, Pipelines, Git, Docker, Kubernetes and Azure App Service.


Our client is a global standards organization. Its products and codes are used by millions of brand owners, retailers and supply chain partners around the world.

The organization needed an always-on, scalable cloud-based platform capable of storing and sharing data on billions of products and related information with members and partners across the world. 

The client also wanted to onboard member organizations quickly and seamlessly. They wanted business capabilities developed on a platform that will serve as modern and secure enterprise-level APIs.


Iris chose a microservices architecture for high agility, loose coupling, independent deployability and maintainability. We followed an API design-first approach and designed according to the standards-based API specification (OpenAPI Specification).

For securely publishing and maintaining APIs, our team deployed the Azure API management solution. We used Azure APIM developer portal to deliver a superior developer onboarding experience. The solution enabled design and implementation of the Azure Virtual network for securely hosting the platform. It also allowed comprehensive performance testing and optimization to meet strict SLAs, and enabled security testing and vulnerability assessment to ensure secure APIs. The solution featured a cloud-native architecture using the Azure AppService and an Azure-managed Kubernetes platform.


Key gains for the client:
  • A robust and secure API platform that handles 200,000 API requests per day.
  • 50 million codes uploaded in 40 product categories across more than 130 countries
  • A portal that is capable of quick onboarding of application developers.
  • New 7-step verification mechanism led to the creation of new revenue streams.
