Industry Context

Application modernization platforms help businesses update legacy systems, going hand-in-hand with the adoption of hybrid and private cloud platforms to ensure scalable data solutions. As technology progresses, the Zero Trust security model's significance grows, safeguarding device endpoints, the cloud, and more.

Concurrently, digital workspaces and virtual desktop infrastructures are enhancing operational efficiency. Additionally, the rise of 5G, RAN, and edge cloud underscores the industry's commitment to robust connectivity.

Client Challenge

The client had an urgent need to onboard new functionalities and integrations to enable innovation. Alongside this, there was an inherent need for scalability, extensibility, and reliability.

As the organization grew, so did the volume of requests, needing a support system capable of handling the influx. In tandem, the client’s goal was to become a data-driven organization.
