Our customer’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its operations, aiming to reduce carbon footprint and enhance environmental conservation. With a strong focus on corporate social responsibility, the conglomerate supports many initiatives in education, health, and community development, striving to positively impact society.

Through strategic expansion and innovation, our customer has established itself as a key player in India’s industrial growth, with ambitions to further expand its global footprint.

Aging IT infrastructure, sluggish application performance resulted in unsatisfactory user experience

Our customer faced a pivotal moment, confronting the limitations of its aging IT infrastructure, which manifested in sluggish application performance, eroding user satisfaction, and jeopardizing employee productivity. They grappled with the dual challenges of scalability and security, as its existing systems struggled to support business growth and protect sensitive data against emerging threats.

This scenario underscored the critical need for a comprehensive overhaul to modernize its technological backbone, ensuring the agility and robustness required for our customer’s ambitious future.

  • Legacy System Limitations: Our customer’s existing IT infrastructure was outdated, leading to slow application response times.
  • User Experience Deterioration: The inefficiency of the old system negatively affected both user satisfaction and employee productivity.
  • Scalability Issues: The inability of the current setup to handle increased loads and growth with the business was a critical concern.
  • Security Concerns: The need for stronger security measures was paramount to protect sensitive data and operations.


Charting the Path with Azure: Embarking on a Collaborative Journey with Embee towards Modernization

Central to this transformation was the adoption of Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), a move designed to revolutionize application management and deployment through advanced containerization. This strategic pivot promised not just enhanced scalability and reliability but also a significant fortification of our customer’s security posture.

  • Infrastructure Assessment: A detailed evaluation of the existing systems and security measures to identify gaps and opportunities for enhancement.
  • Technology Upgrade: The introduction of Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) for advanced containerization, offering better management and deployment of applications.
  • Enhanced Scalability and Reliability: Transition to AKS aimed to provide JSW with the ability to scale resources as needed and ensure consistent application reliability.
  • Security Strengthening: The migration also included a focus on bolstering the security posture to safeguard against evolving threats.

The migration involved several key Azure technologies:

  • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS): for deploying containerized application components, ensuring scalability and management efficiency.
  • Azure Application Gateway and Azure Firewall: to bolster security and control network traffic.
  • Azure Monitor and Azure Container Registry: for monitoring services and managing Docker containers.
  • Virtual Machines and Azure Redis Cache: to support legacy components and enhance application performance.

Our approach emphasized security, working closely with our customer’s security team to ensure compliance and secure application delivery. The deployment process was meticulously planned, with continuous integration and deployment pipelines set up using Jenkins, running atop Azure VMs for an automated and streamlined workflow.

Improved Application Performance and Scalability with our customer and Embee’s Ambitious Modernization Project

Post-migration, our customer experienced a significant transformation in application performance and user experience. The Azure-based infrastructure not only improved the application’s responsiveness but also ensured its scalability to accommodate future growth. Enhanced security measures provided the much-needed assurance for handling sensitive employee data.

  • Improved Performance: The shift to AKS and use of Azure services drastically cut down response times, enhancing user experience.
  • Scalability: Containerization allowed for easy scaling of application components to meet varying demands.
  • Security: Advanced Azure security features ensured that the application met stringent compliance requirements.
