Moving to the Cloud Cuts Costs and Improves Infrastructure
Moving application lifecycle management to the cloud cuts costs and improves infrastructure configuration.
COMPANY: Medical communication and education services provider for the biopharmaceutical industry.
PROJECT: Application Development
The company wanted to move its on-premise application lifecycle management (ALM) infrastructure to the cloud to reduce cost and overhead, as well as improve its infrastructure configuration. The change would require changing processes and educating staff.
Using an agile approach, iVision migrated over 50 software projects and 10 gigabytes of source code to a cloud-based configuration. The transfer required continuous integration and deployment; custom creation; and training of internal staff. The iVision team used Visual Studio Team Services to manage the project according to agile principles.
Eliminating servers and processes associated with on-premise ALM greatly reduced the company’s equipment and software licensing costs. The company adopted the agile methodology learned through the project and used it to increase the speed and transparency of other key projects.
