Companies call Flux7 with a variety of business needs and balancing agility and security is chief among them. This is really no surprise as we often work with organizations that must simultaneously meet regulatory and risk management goals while successfully launching new services to market. Today’s story of a digital financial services provider whose clientele consists of many of the largest U.S. banks is a prime example.
We recently had the opportunity to work with a quick serve restaurant (QSR) to help it achieve security with agility, effectively balancing IT governance with their workload reduction and wait time elimination goals. This household name reached out to the AWS experts at Flux7 as they looked for solutions that would allow the development team to quickly build a new digital platform that would support this organization's digital evolution.
We recently worked with a Fortune 500 manufacturer of heavy equipment that is focused on quality, productivity, and effectively connecting its customers with data-driven insights via technology. As an international, publicly traded organization, it is also careful about managing security, risk and compliance. So, when this manufacturer asked if we could set up an audit and notification system, we were happy to roll up our sleeves and begin work. (You can read here the full case study of this Fortune 100 customer.)
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and, that’s exactly what this SaaS sales application provider asked for the AWS experts at Flux7 to come in and provide. Knowing our deep background and knowledge of the ins and outs of AWS services -- and the ecosystem of technologies that work with it -- they asked if we could validate their AWS roadmap and help them take full advantage of the benefits AWS provides.
As an Austin, TX based DevOps consulting firm, we work often with organizations in the energy space, empowering them to directly address business drivers and see their ideas come to life with the application of modern technology. So it was in this vein, that we were approached by a publicly traded, global solar company who wanted to use a cloud migration as an opportunity to overhaul its business processes. (You can read the full case study here.) Specifically, they were looking to use the opportunity to grow developer agility, gain global access for their workers and to save on capital expenses while maintaining compliance and building-in standardization.
While microservices benefit a variety of organizations on multiple fronts, (for a deeper discussion on this, please check out our blog, “Microservices Trend as IT Competes on their Respective Strengths”) today we are examining how one startup used a microservice architecture to give developers greater agility and add automation to gain a competitive advantage in its industry.
