Industry Context

Central to the shift toward harnessing internet services, is the demand for robust services that can steer and manage network traffic. Yet, traditional frameworks are now revealing inadequacies.

Notably, their lack of support for modern deployment models, particularly those leveraging the power and agility of microservices in containerized environments, underscores the need for a more adaptive and forward-thinking approach in the industry.

Client Challenge

The client needed to modernize their products to harness the cloud’s potential. Yet, they recognized the enduring value of their on-premises versions and were determined to preserve their relevance. Thus, the objective of augmenting capabilities and creating richer integrations became a central focus.

However, the path was punctuated with obstacles in the form of skill and capacity voids that needed addressing. Beyond refining current offerings, they aimed to create and launch innovative new products, leveraging existing, in-house open-source solutions 

NO Challenge

Approach

  • Product Management - supported client’s on-prem solutions already deployed in several customers, providing bug fixes and evolving test scenarios and environments
  • Cloud Services - increased products and tools capabilities by integrating them with cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and GCP
  • Platform Modernization - used modern IoT cloud services to approach distributed deployment of fleet-like agents for better management and monitoring
  • Product Engineering & Development - developed, extended, and adapted core products, tools, and open-source software led by the client, such as portals, observability agents, and backend services
  • DevOps - implemented DevOps techniques, such as Infra as Code with Terraform, ChatOps, and adjusted CI/CD pipelines as needed by several projects
  • Data Modernization & Engineering - contributed to the evolution of dashboards and KPIs from a data perspective (data quality and data pipeline), and delivered insights on potential AI approaches to increase product value
  • Quality Engineering, worked with the client on test case creation and execution, and in the increase of automated end-to-end tests
  • Digital Experience - worked with the client design team to evolve their design system addressing accessibility and inconsistency issues
