As part of the partnership between cloudThing and aprais, we were asked to rearchitect one of their most important applications, so that it would provide a modern User Experience, be more resilient, scalable, secure, as well as more cost efficient to operate.
Who are aprais?
aprais are the global pioneers in building stronger business relationships between organisations and their clients.
Since establishing, they’ve advised the world’s leading marketers and agencies on more than 24,000 relationships, across 92 countries, in 13 different languages.
That’s enabled them to build a large bank of data that allows companies to accurately and efficiently compare their business relationships with those of their peers.
The aprais brief came in two parts, with the first involving an overhaul of their proprietary framework.
aprais use that framework, with the huge amount of data they’ve collected and manage, to analyse organisations and their competitors using Azure as their data warehouse platform.
cloudThing were asked to modernise this platform whilst also creating a consumer grade, responsive, Questionnaire App for their clients.
What Would Success Look Like?
At the end of the project aprais needed a consumer-grade Questionnaire App that would offer a responsive, modern web experience.
The rearchitecture of their platform, from legacy to cloud-native, was to leave them able to leverage the benefits of Azure and Microsoft cloud technologies to incrementally upgrade and improve their platform, whilst keeping operational costs low.
What we did:
cloudThing’s engagement with aprais kicked off with a Bespoke Software Development project to replace their legacy Questionnaire portal with a modern UX React-based Web application with an Azure PaaS data backend.
A full data migration was also required during the service transition.
cloudThings team of data engineers are currently assisting with updates to their Analytics and data processing engine to better optimise the performance of the platform to ensure the platform continues to operate securely, aided by our DevSecOps and security practises.
