A large US-based company that is a leader in Food, Safety, Cosmetics, OTC, and supplements Laboratory Testing faced looming infrastructure upgrades for their current on-premises computing, storage, and network needs. Additionally, they wanted to provide better availability for their business and the applications that IT was responsible for hosting.
With the company experiencing hyper-growth through an M&A strategy, they faced a unique set of challenges on top of the normal considerations companies encounter when migrating to the cloud.
This is because, within their vertical, they have instrumentation that requires physical connections, in some cases to legacy systems. The physical element of this model changes the dynamic of how applications will communicate.
Another challenge was the number of legacy applications that needed to be upgraded and rewritten as cloud-native during the same time period. This added to the complexity of our project.
