Case Study – AWS
LabSlice and Amazon work perfectly together. For LabSlice, the ability to deliver immediate and cost-effective benefits encourages their customers to stay with the product, which is crucial for a startup company. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been an integral part of LabSlice from the very beginning. When the idea of the startup was conceived, selection of the cloud platform provider was a major decision. Simon Ellis, founder and CTO of LabSlice, explains: “We needed a platform that was mature, reliable, and widely in use. Looking at the momentum and on-going success of AWS made this an easy product decision for our business to make.”
Case Study – Dominic and Esther
Dominic and Esther are in their mid-to-late 30’s. He is a successful engineer and she is a well-paid marketing consultant with an I.T. company in Toronto. They have been married for 12 years and have three children, ages 10, 7, and 5. As a working couple with three young children, they barely have time to evaluate their finances. They have very ambitious goals but have never found the time to map out how they will attain them. They have debts spiraling out of control and only save haphazardly. They are considered high-income earners, which puts them in a higher tax bracket, adding to their financial obligations. They know that they need to start saving for retirement beyond saving for their personal goals but they are overwhelmed and don’t know how to start. They knew they needed help but they didn’t trust their bank for unbiased advice, they reached out to us.
Case Study – Infosys
E.ON began its ServiceNow led digital transformation journey by first setting up a single consolidated platform as an internal tool for service management and then integrating all the other supplier tools into it. Infosys helped E.ON transition to the ServiceNow cloud based platform to modernize IT service management across the enterprise. Infosys powered the implementation with its Enterprise Service Management Café that helped standardize and reduce the overall duration of the implementation significantly.
