Shift to the cloud for on-the-go access to vital Safety and Flight apps
Microland reduced operational costs by 18% through modernized infrastructure for a global provider of aviation services
Microland re-modelled, re-architected and re-coded a suite of seven applications related to Safety Management & Quality Assurance Systems and Aviation Engineering so that they could be migrated to a cloud environment. The transformation allowed the client easier accesses to applications from the new geos they were expanding to.
- 18% reduction in operational cost
- 90% improvement in flight schedule adherence
The client provides logistics services to the aviation industry with operations in more than 200 airports across 36 countries. The client’s services include ground handling, cargo handling, cargo forwarding, and fueling.
The client was expanding to new geos and needed easier, on-the-go access to business applications related to Safety Management & Quality Assurance Systems and Aviation Engineering while optimizing operations costs through datacenter consolidation. In addition, the goal was to modernize applications aimed at faster and more accurate safety checks and ensuring flight schedule adherence by client airlines.
Microland defined a strategy for the re-modeling and re-architecting of applications from on-premise to private cloud. Applications were then re-coded and refactored for optimal cloud deployment.
The technology landscape for the solution included Aviation Engineering (.NET, SQL Server, SAP Data Services & BO, EDIFACT Interfaces, Private Cloud) and Safety Management & Quality Assurance Systems (PHP 5.2 to PHP 7, Ubuntu 8.04 to Redhat Linux 6, Oracle 11g, Apache Webservers, Multiple App Servers, Private Cloud)
By migrating applications to a cloud environment, the modernized applications ensured:
- 18% reduction in operational costs
- 90% improvement in flight schedule adherence by client airlines
- Better security and monitoring
Additionally, the client benefited by moving away from the old datacenter which did not meet security and compliance requirements.
