Infrastructure automation can save you months of engineering time on important projects.

You know it’s time to make a change. You want to modernise your organisation’s technology infrastructure and update its data analytics process.

But maybe you’re facing time or resource restraints. Or maybe you aren’t 100% sure where or how to best begin with a digital transformation. It can feel like a tall task, especially because most standard large-scale, secure digital migration and application development projects can take months or years and require a lot of resources.

The good news: It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, you can now deploy infrastructure and modernise data and analytics much, much faster.

How fast? An hour or two.

This new approach to scalable cloud, data and SaaS projects are all designed to add value to your business as quickly as possible. Accelerated deployments leverage infrastructure as code and includes all the setup and configuration. From there, you can duplicate the deployment with any number of tweaks unique to your organisation – names, sizes, streams, data sources, etc.

This saves months of development time, reduces configuration errors and ensures adherence to current best practices as dictated by the cloud providers themselves through their well-architected frameworks. It also allows additional flexibility to specify what resources and properties are needed at the outset, giving your teams and organisation the ability to allocate other resources to high-value activities.

And this expedited process can be accomplished because a trusted technology partner like Growth Acceleration Partners (GAP) has over 15 years of experience with so many different types of applications.

GAP is a strategic technology solutions partner providing an exceptional experience in Digital Transformation consulting and the Delivery of Software and Data Solutions via world-class data and software engineering teams. GAP helps you scale smarter, transforming your objectives into data that drives decision-making and delivering software solutions that help achieve critical business outcomes.

For a variety of reasons, building infrastructure required for cloud applications typically takes considerable time. It can involve at least 6-9 months of standard development – and even more if teams backtrack to address default configuration errors. But as obstacles like this arise, an accelerated automation strategy like the GAPBuilt Accelerators become the perfect fit. A proprietary method built from our team’s decades worth of experience, this is GAP’s “secret sauce” that helps us fast-track your modernisation efforts and speed up your time to value.

Terraform powers these specially designed frameworks, simplifying development with reusable components of architecture. This minimises common pain points and migration concerns, which allows you to mobilise faster than ever. Infrastructure is deployed in scenarios such as a highly scalable web app, data ingestion system or a modern data analytics platform. Using either AWS or Azure, the infrastructure can be deployed, stitched together, and up and running with your customised settings in an hour!

Deciding the best route to take for a large digital project can sometimes feel like a gamble. And it’s one that’s important to get right. However, GAP has the experience and expertise to be confident about which platforms are the best bet – both today and in the future – to boost your odds.

So, think you might be ready for a digital transformation or need help leveraging the data within your existing infrastructure? Take a look at your current technology. And if you need a hand, GAP is here to help. Learn more at wearegap.com.
