AWS cloud in the public sector and government
We used the latest AWS technology to deliver the largest and most complex cloud transformation in the UK Government, the Home Office Immigration Technology Cloud Transformation. The project won the 2017 UK IT Industry Award for ‘Best Use of Cloud Services’ and Cloud Excellence Award 2017 for ‘Best Overall Use of Cloud’.
Public safety and disaster response
Combining our public safety, innovation, digital and transformation expertise we ensure our clients get the best value from AWS products and services. We help organisations leverage AWS to enable large-scale business transformation delivering enduring results. We designed, built and optimised a new donations platform for the British Red Cross, one of the UK’s largest charities, which can withstand enormous spikes of traffic during large-scale emergency appeals.
Digital engineering and DevOps
Our digital engineering and DevOps teams help you make the most of AWS’ potential. We work in diverse teams formed of digital strategists, designers, researchers and delivery managers. We use the latest thinking in Scaled Agile, Lean 6-Sigma and automation to develop the right AWS technologies for you and adapt operations to maximise value.
At the Home Office, as part of their AWS migration, we led the DevOps transformation work to enable faster releases to production while maintaining quality assurance. Our DevOps specialists developed the Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipeline using AWS CloudFormation, Jenkins, Helm, Puppet, Packer and Git to build, test and release automatically. We leveraged this pipeline to deploy AWS services like EC2, ELB, S3 and RDS as Infrastructure as Code (IaC). The new infrastructure that supports the platform also lets the technology team build and release new capability in six minutes instead of a day.
At the British Red Cross, we designed, built and optimised a new solution on AWS that can withstand enormous spikes in traffic during large-scale emergency appeals. We designed and implemented a path to production on AWS that enabled CI/CD of application releases. We automated deployment of AWS services like EC2, Elastic Beanstalk, Elastic Load Balancers, CloudFront and RDS. The mission-critical platform built on AWS supported over 33,000 concurrent users and won the 2018 Sitecore Experience Award category for ‘Best ROI from a digital experience’.
