Case Study: Gettex - TYPO3 v10 Upgrade

Many thanks for the good job and the great cooperation! Together we have created a successful website we like a lot - and the feedback has also been very positive so far. Above all, we noticed the increased speed of the website - a great improvement. We still have a lot to do with gettex, and we look forward to taking the next steps with Netresearch.

The plan


The Gettex platform has been a contemporary alternative to traditional floor trading since 2015. Advantages result from the availability and the fact that it is free of charge: Interested parties can order from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekdays - and for the first time in Germany without the exchange fees and brokerage fees which are customary in floor trading.

To offer this service at the cutting edge of technology, the customer requested an upgrade of its content management system to the current version and a modernization of the layout.

Implementation


The core of this challenge was to migrate the existing data - including several thousand news articles with links to share-data - to a new TYPO3 CMS version 10. The new CMS is set up on the customer's system using Docker container virtualization. The entire CI/CD process is ensured via Concourse CI pipelines, so that no manual steps are necessary from changing the code to testing and rollout to the server environment.

All relevant TYPO3 extensions have been rebuilt to ensure compatibility with TYPO3 v10. In addition, a custom look-and-feel was developed for the content elements to optimally meet the special requirements of electronic stock exchange - in particular, an overview of stocks, funds and certificates with immediate visibility of the current prices is given on the home page.

Impressions


Key features


  Current TYPO3 v10             Cleanup of source code
         
  Modern Docker architecture with CI/CD pipelines     Cost reduction  
         
  Fresh, custom-built look-and-feel     Easier future developments

The result


At gettex.de, people can now find the current prices with improved performance in a fresh, clear layout. With just a few clicks you can get an overview and in-depth details of share prices, find securities using the integrated "ivestor Smart Search" and trade directly with the issuer using various cooperating broker services.

Our customer benefits from the latest technologies: the site is now based on a TYPO3 LTS version with security patches and bug fix support through 10/2023, as well as modern PHP 7.4. This not only ensures long-term support and a reliable connection to the expertise of the open-source community, but also significantly improves the performance of the website, which in turn has a positive effect on sales. The cleanup of the source code simplifies further developments and thus reduces future costs, which is another key point for Bayrische Börse brought along by the modernization of the website.
