Use Cases - Automotive Industry, AZURE
About the Client
The client is a global automotive manufacturing and supplier company based in the USA. They are dedicated to delivering mass-production solutions for heavy vehicles and locomotives.
The client had been experiencing a lag in its ICT internal programs and initiatives lately, they decided to work on resource allocation to increase the efficiency of their overall IT projects. This would enable the identification of the best-fitting resources and allow them to manage budgeting easily within a short time frame and with considerable granularity. Moreover, it would simplify the monthly closures checks and approvals process and enable them to quickly finalize it and feed the final balances timely to corporate financial reporting systems.
After assessing different market solutions, the client decided that roping in a solution partner with expertise in Azure would be the best option to address their specific requirements. MSRcosmos was the clear winner for its value-based pricing.
MSRcosmos started with an initial process assessment and derived outcomes that identified key steps, potential sources of inefficiency, and the end-users desired experience. We then explained to the client how Microsoft Azure with its extended PaaS module would be the right choice to develop the solution and went ahead with the implementation post consent.
The solution now provides different tools to simplify the collection of information and report production, minimizing the impact of deploying the application to a wide audience of users.
The application front-end is based on the latest web technologies and the reports are produced directly in Microsoft Excel thanks to a Web Adding.
The shift to Microsoft Azure now provides architectural robustness, and other several business benefits, such as:
- Efficient and effective resource allocation process;
- Modernized user experience, simple to use and navigate;
- Timely dissemination of information;
- Recovery solutions with central data storage – data backup;
- Simplified information sharing with other company systems.
