Headquartered in London, I-Finity’s customer provides customised solutions to its international private clients in managing their personal finances. The innovative nature of the customer coupled with in-depth finance services expertise led to the development of their own proprietary software product.
It is imperative that financial data is managed securely and is fully compliant in line with a highly regulated industry. The solution was architected on Microsoft Azure to access the benefits of cloud in providing scale, security and resilience.
Seeking deep technical experts on Microsoft Azure
Over a period of time, our customer had utilised many software development strategies for their technology requirements including freelance developers and outsourcing overseas. These worked for the short term, however the long term needed stability, reliability and a technology partner with specialist skills. The future was finding an agency with proven in-depth Azure knowledge, skills and expertise. This is where I-Finity started open and transparent conservations with the customer and were able to provide confidence with its Microsoft Partner status and expertise with Azure. The first part of the process was to build on the customer’s trust by validating and confirming the capability within I-Finity. An initial audit and review took place of the existing Azure implementation and the output was a documented report with recommendations.
This was an important first step for both parties, utilising many development models brings multiple development hands with various levels of expertise on Azure. Therefore, it was beneficial to understand the current implementation and create the shared vision of what was needed for the product.
