Having an exceptional approach in facing technological challenges of the present Renault gained the lead by selling 3.8 million vehicles in 2019. Standing shoulder to shoulder with breakthrough solutions, these guys revolutionize the understanding of the future and keep working on the predetermined strategic areas of innovation to let humanity be those very same contributors in making the world a better place to live in.
Groupe Renault is well aware of the environmental issues which we’re unfortunate to experience now and is actively taking a role in building and advocating a model of sustainable mobility to save and serve, live and thrive.
Having an on-premise software infrastructure model, the company might take unprofitable and time-consuming responsibility to solve all the emerging issues related to the running of the software. Now when it comes to data security which is and will always be paramount, the idea of having everything stored within a company's in-house servers might provide some kind of peace of mind anyway.
As far as system optimization for better and faster performance as well as data protection is a must for an enterprise, Groupe Renault was faced with the necessity of Moving ERP solution from on-premise to AWS Cloud and considered Opinov8 as a helping hand in its successful implementation.
The process of cloud migration involves the migration of all or part of an organization’s data from on-premises data centers to a public or private cloud, which are accessible to authorized users on-demand over the Internet.
Opinov8 collaborated with Groupe Renault to derive the best result from data migration. Together, they outlined a strategy to have the following objectives delivered:
01 – Reduce CapEx for on-premise datacenters
02 – Enhance daily SLA %99.65 for infrastructure
03 – Automate software features delivery to reduce time to market for new features
04 – Enhance features delivery process to reduce bugs in production
05 – Provide ability for easy and fast debugging for developers
Opinov8 used AWS Cloud Well-Architected Framework to build a high-performing, resilient, and efficient platform for ERP hosting. With this framework it’s possible to seamlessly evaluate your cloud-based architectures, optimize business value out of your design decisions, and compare your workload against AWS best practices. This step also included migration and a product launch plan for all Renault customers.
Time is money. Opinov8 considered using Jenkins servers with fully automated declarative pipelines. This kind of the pipeline workflow is specifically designed to simplify and accelerate data development lifecycle and maintain the code by providing a better syntax construction. So now all aspects of pipeline execution are easily controlled and presented in a straight-forward way across the data lifecycle.
Opinov8 proposed Graylog and Grafana as a centralized monitoring, logging, and alerting system. They are both open-source tools.
- Having complex system infrastructure Graylog as a powerful log management solution provides single data storage for application logs, collects user behavior analytics, and demonstrates the data in the form of pie diagrams and different graphics.
- Grafana enables users to seamlessly create and edit dashboards for different data types. Every dashboard is changeable and can be customized for any business needs.
To enable provisioning and managing infrastructure lifecycle, Opinov8 implemented the idea of using Hashicorp Terraform as an open-source infrastructure as code software tool. This ensures effective developer workflows by providing an option of infrastructure self-servicing which, in turn, boosts the delivery speed.
Scalability, security, and cost-effective solutions rule the world of IT. So, moving ERP centralized system from on-premise to AWS Cloud Opinov8 has built self-healing, easy to scale infrastructure that Renault needed for growing their business. The decision of data migration substantively helped Renault to save up to 15-25% of their costs, brought business productivity improvements, and operational resilience.
Gaining the flexibility of a hybrid cloud architecture, the Opinov8’s client could expect to have their data protected wherever it resides.
