Industry: Technology solutions for tracking, monitoring and security in transportation industry
Services: Migration of their in-house vehicle tracking application to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda
Their vehicle tracking application is at the core of Hunter’s business. The application had been based on .NET using SQL Server and operated in their Guayaquil data center. Vehicle location information was gathered through a web portal that enabled users to monitor their vehicles. However, as the number of clients increased, so did application traffic. The system had trouble responding and could not easily scale up or down as requirements changed. Analytics to support data-driven decisions were non-existent, while licensing and maintenance of outdated hardware was impacting the bottom line. Increased downtime directly impacted service delivery and customer satisfaction in a negative manner. In order to enhance its service delivery, process automation and overall uptime the company launched a modernization project.
With the help of SoftwareONE, Hunter implemented an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda cloud solution. The change substantially lowered operating costs while providing a modern cloud-based application that shifted expenses from Capex to Opex. The new system would reduce the IT cost per car from $3.00 per month to $1.00 per month. First-year system costs would decline by seventy-five percent, and three-year operating savings were estimated at sixty percent once the cloud solution was fully implemented and operating.
AWS Lambda provides drastic uptime improvements and a scalable solution
