Case Studies

The following case studies illustrate a variety of ways we have helped customers. If you don’t see one that looks relevant to you, just ask and we can share other ones with you, or even put you in touch with customers who faced the same challenges or sought similar results.

AWS Partner Story: Verizon

Verizon’s new Development-Security-Operations Pipeline (DSOP) is one preventative method that the company is using to ensure that applications deployed to the public cloud meet all security policies for cloud applications. DSOP, which itself runs on AWS, was built with assistance from Stelligent, a division of HOSTING and a Premier Consulting Partner of the AWS Partner Network (APN).

AWS re:Invent 2017 — Technological Accelerants for Organizational Transformation

Developers and management can seem at cross purposes when one group looks at technologies and the other looks at organizational issues. Both groups are looking for ways to deliver value faster, leaner, and at less cost. There are technological avenues for accomplishing these goals, including DevOps and serverless architectures. However, these approaches also have organizational implications, as they change the nature and content of communication between teams. In this session, we cover the technology benefits and organizational transformations involved in DevOps and serverless architectures.

This session is part of the re:Invent Developer Community Day, six community-led sessions where AWS enthusiasts share technical insights on trending topics based on first-hand experiences and knowledge shared within local AWS communities.

Continuous Delivery can be challenging, especially for enterprises that deal with strict compliance requirements like those in the financial services sector. AWS and Stelligent frequently work together with many large Financial Services Enterprises to help incorporate their capabilities securely on the Cloud. From security of the source code used to trigger builds, to the insertion of strict business controls at run time, and out to the continuous inspection of the running infrastructure to ensure compliance, we are helping to build capabilities that are enabling them to run their business faster and safer on AWS.

AWS re:Invent 2015: Infrastructure as Code — Enabling Your Enterprise

Featuring: Featuring: AWS, Stelligent and Radian.

While many organizations have started to automate their software develop processes, many still engineer their infrastructure largely by hand. Treating your infrastructure just like any other piece of code creates a “programmable infrastructure” that allows you to take full advantage of the scalability and reliability of the AWS cloud. This session will walk through practical examples of how AWS customers have merged infrastructure configuration with application code to create application-specific infrastructure and a truly unified development lifecycle. You will learn how AWS customers have leveraged tools like CloudFormation, orchestration engines, and source control systems to enable their applications to take full advantage of the scalability and reliability of the AWS cloud, create self-reliant applications, and easily recover when things go seriously wrong with their infrastructure..
