They were facing challenges with risk management practices and needed to upgrade their infrastructure and applications but it was leading to excessive expenditures. The organization realized that in order to improve the quality and compliance of their technology standards, policies, and procedures, they needed to define, design and implement them. Furthermore, it was necessary for the company's executives to gain more visibility into IT performance and maximize efficiency.

Business Solution

Pronix IT Services team was brought in to address the IT issues faced by the organization. The first step taken by Pronix was to evaluate the corporation's current IT capacities and perform a gap analysis.

Technical Solution

To address the need for digital modernization, Pronix IT Services team proposed a comprehensive approach that included application management services. This approach focused on re-hosting, restructuring and re-engineering existing systems, as well as transitioning to the cloud. The goal of this approach was to enhance the user experience, improve applications and processes, and introduce fresh technology through application management services.
The first step of the solution was to re-host the organization's existing systems onto newer and more robust hardware. This provided the organization with the ability to run its systems on more powerful servers, which in turn improved the performance and scalability of the systems.
Next, Pronix proposed restructuring the organization's systems in order to make them more modular and easier to maintain. This involved breaking down large monolithic systems into smaller, more manageable components. This approach allowed the organization to improve the efficiency and scalability of its systems, while also making them more flexible and adaptable to changing business needs.
Pronix also proposed re-engineering certain parts of the organization's systems to introduce new technology and improve performance. This included introducing new software development frameworks and libraries, as well as incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities into the systems.
As part of the solution, Pronix also proposed transitioning the organization's systems to the cloud. This would allow the organization to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness of cloud-based infrastructure, while also providing it with the ability to access its systems from anywhere with an internet connection.
Pronix also suggested implementing upgrades and standards to the organization's systems, including assessment and utilization of automated testing tools in accordance with DevOps practices. Additionally, Pronix proposed setting coding standards and reviews based on DevOps and new RD technologies. These practices were aimed at ensuring that the organization's systems were robust, reliable, and secure.
Overall, the proposed technical solution would help the organization to modernize its digital systems, improve user experience, and achieve a competitive edge in the market. The proposed solution was comprehensive and covered all the different aspects of digital modernization.
