Case: Codento Supporting a Public Sector In-house Company to Design a Google Cloud Implementation
What was the challenge?
The customer is a public sector in-house company. They provide several ICT services including hosting. The customer has decided to follow a multi-cloud strategy for the public cloud where some of the services are provided by Google Cloud.
The customer attempts to gain the following benefits:
- New, more efficient and standardized operational procedures
- Avoid vendor-lock
- Agility for technology changes
- Implementation of Zero Trust
- Easy access to security tools
- Fault tolerance, including backup and archiving
- Cost optimization
Together with the customer, Codento organized three different series of workshops (ICT architecture, data security and application development). During the workshops, Codento documented the current state as well as the requirements for the target state. Based on the collected information, Codento cloud architects wrote the first drafts of the documentation. The documents were presented in the workshops, and feedback and change requests were collected.
Codento’s services included the architectural design and planning of needed services. Two experienced cloud architects were nominated from Codento. In addition, a couple of Google Finland employees participated in the workshops.
Codento was selected because of our vision of the required architecture and proposed approach to deliver the plan in a condensed time frame. In addition, the customer valued our solid co-operation with Google Finland.
What were the results?
Codento provided the cloud implementation plans in agreed schedule and within project budget.
