Deploy site in microservice silos
Tangent Solutions has designed a unique automated software architecture called Nimble. The Nimble Architecture is a microservices based architecture built on top of your company’s ERP or database which abstracts shared services such as authentication, logging and caching making it easier and faster to integrate custom front end systems or mobile applications.

Nimble, which is deployed into the Azure environment using Container Services, gives enterprises the flexibility to modernise thier businesses without the need to replace legacy back-end systems and data sources.


Deploy entire site
A monolithic or traditionally coded site is deployed in a single phase. If updates or changes need to be made, the entire site gets affected and needs to be redeployed. This results in longer deployments, wasted time and money.

Tangent Solutions developers designed Nimble, a unique and specialised software architecture which is deployed into the Azure environment using Azure Container Services. The product ensures efficiency and speed when integrating front-end systems and mobile applications with ERPs.

The microservices are built on top of a company’s current system or database, allowing it to analyse services and break them down into silos. Nimble then allows isolated changes to a section of code, without affecting the application in its entirety. This gives developers and companies the option of programming language independence, which is not bound by a technology choice.

Nimble is built around specific business capabilities, with automated deployments – making the digital transformation of one’s business swift, adaptable and reliable.

By using a managed container orchestration framework, Tangent Solutions can work quicker and more efficiently – ensuring increased speed of development, environment consistency and cost-savings.



Built using open standards accommodating specific needs.


Quicker development (docs, scaffolding apps).

Continuous integration

Checking, automated code builds merging all developer working copies.

More flexibility

Not tied down to proprietary product.

Deploy old legacy IT systems to the cloud automatically

Not only has the Tangent Solutions team automated microservice infrastructure successfully; they have also created a product that produces normalised data and caching – allowing the site speed to increase with each user.

Nimble is a product developed by Tangent Solutions that uses specialised software architecture which is deployed into the Azure environment using Azure Container Services. The product was first developed three years ago when a team of 17 developers integrated five legacy business systems into a single pane front end system for a large telecommunications company in South Africa.

Throughout the development, the team adjusted, recoded and created a product that could be used on multiple projects, reducing build-time and increasing business efficiencies.

Nimble is a cutting edge product which is built on Ruby and Python. Developers can use multiple languages for the many systems a company requires or has and deploy them to the cloud in silos, not affecting the overall site or system. Built in isolation, Tangent Solutions can guarantee zero downtime when deploying microservices to the cloud.

Nimble’s differentiating factor is the normalisation of data. It integrates with an existing data source – regardless of the format – and exposes data via JSON. Thus making it easily consumed by the modern client.
