Qld's Main Roads deploys MEDA platform

Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads has introduced a new microservices and event driven architecture (MEDA) platform in partnership with technology consultancy Thoughtworks.

The department selected Thoughtworks to help drive its digital transformation in December last year. The partners have been working for the past six months to develop the new platform.

The MEDA platform comprises a collection of modern, flexible and scalable tools and practices that allow the department to build solutions that meet its needs using standard patterns.

Department of Transport and Main Roads Executive Director (Business) Lance Oswald said the successful project will enable the department to build customer-oriented solutions faster and more cost-effectively.

“What worked well for us during the process was not only the ability to deliver a technical outcome but the ability to transfer knowledge from a vendor partner to our internal teams as we begin to transition to new ways of working,” he said.

Thoughtworks ANZ managing director Kristan Vingrys added that the partners plan to expand their collaboration in the future.

“Our strategic partnership with TMR is not only an exciting opportunity for Thoughtworks but also a true testament to how crucial it is for businesses across all industries to have a strong platform for innovation,” he said.

“We’re looking forward to building on our success with TMR’s MEDA platform, harnessing this partnership and working with our experienced teams to help move the department towards a more agile and transformational digital framework.”
