Globe Business Helps Vivant Corporation Mount Cloud Capabilities

Executive Summary

Vivant Corporation—a publicly listed holding company that has investments in different segments of the power value chain and expanding interest in infrastructure development, particularly water—collaborated with Globe and its cloud services delivery arm, Cascadeo, for Vivant’s migration to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Vivant identified the cloud migration of its remaining on-premise servers as a priority, to consolidate and further improve the resilience of its infrastructure.

The Challenge

The importance of cloud migration was amplified by various lockdowns, which made access to physical data centers challenging. Data centers are a vital component of cloud computing, storage, and running network and business applications. However, they require round-the-clock management and upkeep to enable stakeholders to consistently and safely access company applications and digital services that are crucial to the business.

The decision to implement cloud initiatives, in partnership with Globe and Cascadeo, was a conscious step towards achieving Vivant’s business goals while ensuring the welfare of its workforce amid health risks.

The Solution

Cloud experts from Cascadeo and Globe Business collaborated with Vivant's technical team in designing and implementing the migration of Vivant’s on-premise servers to AWS.

Led by cloud-certified engineers, Cascadeo’s managed services provided support for cloud instances (virtual servers that run workloads in the cloud) monitoring, runbook recipes (background information and practical procedures to accomplish IT or DevOps tasks), and 24x7x365 runbook remediation and advisory-level assistance to Vivant that enabled them to enhance their cloud infrastructure operations.

The Outcome

Vivant, with the support of Globe, implemented a lift-and-shift strategy for the migration of its Human Resource Information System (HRIS) and Document Management System (DMS) to AWS. This is to ensure minimal disruption to operations and end-users. Now, end users can benefit from the high availability of HRIS and DMS services under the AWS infrastructure, allowing them to efficiently manage and securely access files across internal departments.

To ensure the smooth operation of its web servers, Cascadeo secured Vivant’s applications with SSL/TLS certificates. Vivant Corporation also now makes use of the AWS Managed Microsoft Active Directory, a fully managed service that enables them to securely manage employee devices and applications through the cloud, allowing them to share a single directory for cloud workloads; centrally manage application access and devices in; easily extend existing domains, and simplify administration with the managed service.

Vivant has always embraced the use of technology to improve our ability to deliver services and streamline existing processes as we fulfill our commitment to provide solutions for a changing world. Our partnership with Globe Business is part of our IT roadmap, designed to improve efficiency and security.
