amazee.io and leading Swiss digital agency, Previon Plus worked together to build a custom on-premises hosting solution for their client, SIX, the operator of the infrastructure for the Swiss financial center.
In an effort to modernize their intranet, which stores the vast amount of non-public information required to operate their business, SIX partnered with Previon Plus to move to agile DevOps, leverage better technologies, and redesign the employee digital experience. With Previon Plus’s expertise in digital platforms, they brought amazee.io on board to deliver a secure on-premise hosting solution in SIX’s datacenter that would support the open source technology being implemented for the new intranet. Moving their systems from Sharepoint to Drupal required a high level of consulting services which included change management, training, and high coordination with Previon Plus and SIX’s Corporate Security, Network, Database, and Intranet teams.
Because security is of utmost priority within highly regulated industries such as finance and SIX IT governance required the project to be hosted within their on-premises servers, amazee.io was tasked with not only enabling rapid deployments but also ensuring the highest levels of data protection. Our custom solution leverages Lagoon to provide a cloud-based server for ongoing development, from which staging and production releases are deployed directly into SIX’s datacenter after passing an automated security scan.
This solution enables Previon Plus to ship weekly releases while meeting strict requirements of stability and security. We were able to facilitate additional requirements including personalized content, single sign-on, and advanced search with Solr which could be tested locally because of the containerization, and ultimately launched the platform far ahead of SIX’s expectations — rather than requiring years, we delivered this complex solution in only two months.
