Challenge: A leading provider of medical technology, services, and solutions
had acquired dozens of companies in a short period of time and with another sizable merger
on the horizon, the combined organization was expected to drive
significant ($2B) operational efficiencies. They needed a trusted partner to help develop a
cloud strategy that would set them up for successful operational excellence as they
continued to grow at a rapid pace.
Solution: Smartronix, an AWS
Premier Consulting Partner, was selected to
develop this multi-cloud migration strategy and approach. Leveraging our Foundational Agile
Strategic Transformation (FAST) Program, we developed a multi-cloud decision
provided FinOps services and guidance, planned migration activities centered around the
migration factory approach, designed and deployed foundational infrastructure components,
developed repeatable migration templates, and provided managed services across AWS, Azure,
and private cloud.
Our Cloud Assured team worked closely with the customer's Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE)
to develop a cloud migration factory comprised of four key phases: Framing Estimates,
Technical Architecture and Cloud Services Proposal Creation, Build and Deliver, and
Run/Operate. The use of our multi-cloud decision framework in concert with the migration
factory plans helped ensure that each phase met pre-defined requirements before moving to
the next phase. We integrated automation, security-first principles, and DevOps
methodologies which allowed our engineering staff to rapidly build and test production
environments that enabled required security controls. Smartronix' ability to cleanly and
securely implement a well-integrated Infrastructure as Code (IaC) approach to continuous
delivery was largely due to differentiating technologies involved in this solution,
including cloud native services.
The resulting solution provided fully auditable and repeatable deployment patterns for both
infrastructure and applications, which meant teams were now capable of deploying entire
application stacks within minutes. Smartronix Cloud Assured team members continue to support
all phases of customer engagement, including 24x7x365 managed services support structured
around international security, data sovereignty, and patient privacy mandates.
