BJSS Capabilities: Platform Engineering

An organisation’s underlying Platform should be dynamic, resilient and secure. 

Whether Cloud-based, physical data centres, or a hybrid architecture, BJSS brings technical and process enhancements that deliver real business benefits. Dynamically scaling up or down to meet fluctuating demand, or rapid deployment of development and test environments to enable new products to be quickly released to market, the BJSS approach ensures a Platform architecture that is tailored to individual requirements. BJSS is technology-agnostic and has experience of delivering Enterprise-class Platform solutions across a range of platforms (AWS, Azure, Openstack, Cloudstack, vCloud).

To facilitate its continued growth, an award-winning UK telecoms provider, needed to quickly deploy a range of website improvements and new features. BJSS was called in to define the dynamic IT Platform it needed to support its Agile development process.

BJSS Delivered

The design and build of a private, multi-datacentre, IaaS platform based around Citrix CloudStack. A self-service management layer enabled on-demand automated deployment of production-like environments, scaled from single-developer Virtual Machines to full scale NFT environments consisting of multiple Virtual Machines.

Benefits

Coupling the dynamic IaaS platform with a development process based on BJSS Enterprise Agile has facilitated a more rapid response to new business requirements and ramp up the continuous improvement process. A representative Production Support environment also enables an enhanced Platform change-management process.
