The Business Challenges
The life sciences company built a BI platform on AWS that was scaling across the globe, but the company did not have the internal resources or capabilities to manage the environment. In fact, the company experienced a two-day outage prior to production. The BI platform was one of the company’s first major efforts on AWS and served as a litmus test for a much larger migration to AWS.
Lacking the internal skill sets or experience necessary to manage its complicated cloud workloads, it decided to work with an AWS Managed Service Partner. It chose 2nd Watch over its incumbent legacy SIs in order to leverage 2nd Watch’s cloud-born approach and deeper understanding of managing the full stack of AWS services for the enterprise.
2nd Watch is providing managed cloud services to monitor, operationalize, and stabilize the company’s AWS environmentusing AWS ELB, Redshift, S3, RDS, EC2, Codepipeline, CloudFormation and CodeCommit for its analytics platform to enable better client-level interaction and decisions.
