MicrosoftGlobal Software Icon

Company

It’s Microsoft. Need we say more?

Challenge

The company needed to quickly create a searchable readiness catalogue to help partners navigate Azure and its resources more easily.

Solution

We used Azure PaaS to develop a fully-scalable custom information repository that can grow from 20 to 2,000,000+ users.

Results

The project was conceived, planned, developed, and launched in less than four months, demonstrating the revolutionary time-to-market delivery of developing in Azure.

Walsh GroupInternational Construction Leader

Company

The Walsh Group builds skyscrapers, subways, stadiums and bridges all over the world. They own more than $450M in capital equipment and employ over 5,000 engineers and tradespeople.

Challenge

Incorporate public cloud services into an existing datacenter strategy and authenticate and authorize users in the cloud securely for government contracts.

Solution

We created a proof of concept (POC) using Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium to expose a scheduling database and HR application to employees in a unified way.

Results

The POC showed that Azure Active Directory supported the strategy and security needs, and we immediately implemented the technology into business applications.

ZS AssociatesGlobal Sales and Marketing Data Experts

Company

ZS transforms sales and marketing from an art to a science, creating data-driven strategies and taking on sales and marketing operations for customers.

Challenge

ZS used numerous manually configured servers with a variety of solutions cobbled together and no consistent framework. The system was prone to error and there was no version control.

Solution

We used Chef to create a server configuration framework with a continuous delivery workflow that fully automated testing and deployment, and educated ZS’s team on DevOps practices.

Results

Server configuration went from two and a half days plus four hours of manual configuration to less than one hour, and ZS took initial steps toward a true DevOps culture.

Arrow PaymentsOnline Credit Card Processor

Company

Delivers credit card processing for retailers, restaurants, small businesses and service providers who work on-site with customers, such as plumbers.

Challenge

As payment processing moved online, the company needed a cost-effective, 100% secure, PCI compliant, user-friendly online payment gateway and customer support center.

Solution

In only 13 weeks using Azure PaaS, we developed a cloud-based payment processing application and back-end management system accessed via browser, iPad and mobile devices.

Results

Application allowed Arrow to grow their business exponentially and cloud management by 10th Magnitude let them focus resources on their core business rather than IT.

General Building Construction CompanyTop 15 U.S. Contractor

Company

One of the largest general contractors in the United States, providing design, build, finance and operation services.

Challenge

The client needed a more dynamic and less time-consuming project P&L reporting solution to replace its existing solution.

Solution

We created a data model using Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services to enable a more complete view of P&L and developed enhanced visualizations of the data in Power BI.

Healthcare Services & Technology CompanyLeader in Value-Based Care Solutions

Company

Provider of value-based care solutions for hospitals, health systems and physicians, including advisory services, managed services and proprietary technology.

Challenge

The client needed to determine whether Chef could be used to successfully automate the provisioning of a claims processing application.

Solution

We conducted a Chef Proof of Value (POV) that automated the provisioning of three application components to estimate the value of full application automation.

Results

The POV demonstrated that Chef reduced application provisioning time to two hours instead of the two weeks required for the existing manual process.

kCuraLegal Software

Company

Develops web-based e-discovery applications for managing large volumes of electronic evidence during litigation or investigations.

Challenge

kCura needed to create a highly scalable educational “lab” tool to provide individual demo environments for customers at its annual conference, Relativity Fest.

Solution

We developed a cloud-based, custom lab automation application that simultaneously provided over 500 attendees with an auto-provisioned Azure environment.

Results

kCura’s production time for creating new labs and new product demos reduced dramatically, from months to hours, enabling the IT team to refocus on higher-value projects.

Public Accounting FirmAmong Top 20 US Accounting Firms

Company

Major certified public accounting firm in the United States, providing assurance, tax and advisory services to public and private clients.

Challenge

The client can now get more value from its Azure implementation by incorporating best practices for application security and modernization.

Equipment ManufacturerLeader in Environmental and Safety Solutions

Company

Manufacturer of a wide range of equipment for municipal, governmental and commercial customers, including a leading brand of street sweepers.

Challenge

The client needed to enable its street sweeper product line, deployed across a large number of municipalities, for remote monitoring, maintenance and predictive analytics.

Solution

We conducted a proof of concept with Azure IoT Suite that showed how data from monitors in sweepers would enable better water conservation and improve operator usage.

Results

Incorporating IoT capabilities improves the client’s market positioning, revenue mix and customer service by better meeting the needs of water-conscious municipalities.

Project Management Software ProviderLeader in Collaboration Tools

Company

International provider of popular software that helps IT project teams work together effectively and apply lean management principles.

Challenge

The client needed to migrate over 2,000 VMs from its existing hosted infrastructure to Azure in order to comply with stringent EU data residency clauses.

Solution

We developed an application architecture for migrating the client’s 500 GB database to Azure and fully automated the configuration of SQL Server.

Results

Our architecture identified and therefore avoided potential pitfalls associated with such a large cloud migration, and automation set them up for ongoing success with Azure.

Holden InternationalSales Team Development

Company

A global sales training and consulting firm that presents sales as a management science and creates customized training for clients.

Challenge

efox, a semi-custom app for training programs, needed modernizing for usability, changeability, flexibility, multiple CRM compatibility, and to enable a new licensing model.

Solution

We used Azure PaaS to create a multi-lingual, multi-CRM cloud-based app with single sign-on and Azure-enabled dynamic scaling that allows worldwide customer additions.

Results

Demand for the new efox drove increased demand for Holden’s training – and vice versa. What used to be a footnote on the P&L is now a major top line engine.
