Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?
The first project that we kicked off with InfraPros was establishing a new cloud-based, micro-services architecture hosted on AWS. Within weeks, InfraPros defined a go-forward, cloud native architecture and within the first month, we had services leveraging this new architecture built and deployed through a new CI/CD pipeline live on AWS.
New infrastructure, fully configured and tested could now be deployed within minutes rather than weeks. Software deployments which previously took hours of manual effort and was error-prone to move software through all environments to production was now fully automated with quality tests and performance thresholds.
Thereafter, Infrapros helped us build and deploy new highly available, distributed services that enabled high levels of process automation delivering lower cost products to our clients in a fraction of the time. Additionally, InfraPros has helped us reduce our overall cloud costs, in some cases by as much as 50%, by deploying server-less, containerized solutions.
How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?
InfraPros collaborative demeanor helped maintain effective communication throughout the course of the program. They coordinated regularly scheduled daily meetings with the teams as well as regular communications with myself and other stakeholders.
They effectively helped manage and lead the off-shore teams engaged in the project as well. Beyond the effective, regular communications, their ability to establish trust and highly productive working relationships not only with fellow engineers but also with technical leadership and business stakeholders is above and beyond any other vendor I have worked with in the past.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
There are two things I would call out of many impressive attributes of InfraPros and my experience with them.
First, is the level of quality of their engineers. Their technical knowledge and productivity are second to none. They have an ability to produce the right solution the first time and at a fast pace. Second is their ability to develop strong working relationships with every team member and stakeholder (technical or not).
Are there any areas for improvement?
InfraPros continued to impress throughout the engagement. Their ability to deliver the right solution, on-time every time was an uncommon experience for me in my 16 years working with vendors in the technology space. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a partner with deep experience in cloud architectures / platforms.
