Moving to AWS (Amazon Web Services) Cloud, Ensuring IT moves in the speed of business
Since the last couple of decades, Garudafood already integrate IT-centric operation into their business, application becomes more and more valuable part of business, especially for sales, logistics & manufacturing teams. They always adopt & invest in technology that they believe will help the business grow, compete in the market & ultimately provide good experience to their customer.
Digital transformation becomes a necessity, and as a result, it’s been a biggest challenge for IT to provide infrastructure & necessary resources as soon as the business require. Rather than investing big & managing complex infrastructure, network & security; it became clearer that a cloud-first approach is the right way to go.
“We know integrating cloud service into our IT is unavoidable. Global public cloud offer services that can scale-up our business operation, offer the most value & is the right choice for us.” said Johanes Hartanto, Chief of Corporate Information Technology of Garudafood.
Cloud service is the way to go these days, where almost any kind service & tools required by application developer team can be made available within minutes. No more waiting time for approval & delivery. This means, reach the market & do your business faster.
“The next questions, how & where should we start with this cloud adoption?” continued Johanes, “We’ve had some ongoing infrastructure refreshment plan and upcoming new apps such as e-recruitments, online catalog & order booking, customer web support & service, as well as some internal mobile apps for back office.”
Technical valuation of multiple cloud vendor, along with commercial review was done by Garudafood, with the help of Metrodata as Partner.
“After 3 months of evaluation, in which we had the firsthand experience of using AWS cloud, we came into conclusion that AWS & Metrodata is the right choice for us. AWS has the best SLA, easy to operate, comes with proper security control & its marketplace also allow us to provide necessary extra security features & more” Johanes said
Easy to integrate, Complete Documentation & Tech Guideline
Not every cloud is built the same & not every cloud provides the same level of ease when moving & building workload in the cloud, let alone enhance it. As pioneer among Global Cloud Provider, AWS provides each & every customer with the most complete technical guideline with various workloads, ranging from ERP, databases, web application even specific/uncommon services.
“This also played a factor of why we chose AWS, other than AWS marketplace where we can integrate our cloud with services from our preferred technology vendor; they also have a very complete whitepaper & architecture documentation of various workloads which we can access freely” said Johanes.
With this, customer who are looking to migrate more or create new workload in AWS cloud can rest assure, they will have insight on how to do this with AWS from the very beginning. Along with Metrodata who can provide expertise of various workload on AWS (ERP, Big Data, windows workload, databases, devops, etc), moving to cloud & keeping it optimized is not a painful process.
“AWS cloud services prices are become more tolerable and justifiable from value perspective. We know it’s the proper cloud that we need now & in the future.” Said Johanes as closing statement.
Integrating Amazon Web Services, a pay per use, secure & flexible cloud model to keep up with the fast-paced changes of application & service’s needs.
Widely-used cloud, more vendor familiar with AWS technology, compared to local cloud vendor.
