The Spanish Point SMART AIM engagement commenced with a review of Ocuco’s existing solution architecture, working with the Ocuco team to provide an Azure road map and high-level implementation plan.
Ocuco initially migrated existing customers from hosted datacentres to Azure. By gaining insights into the cloud, they now optimise costs and get the most out of their cloud investment.
Spanish Point is also working with Ocuco to build a new version of Acuitas as a native cloud solution. This has included assisting Ocuco in moving to modern DevOps using Azure Pipelines and Yaml, involving a number of steps:
- Review of existing the DevOps approach
- Team structure and security of the DevOps process, including pipeline security
- Modern source control, Repo structure and definition of branch polies
- Implementation and training in Azure Pipeline, Yaml and the SMART AIM library
- Development of pipelines and configuration of Azure Pipeline environment
- Assistance with migration of existing classic pipelines to Yaml
In addition, Ocuco was looking to add new analytics capabilities to their products, and the Spanish Point Data Analytics team has assisted Ocuco with the design and build of a modern SaaS based reporting and data analytics solution embedded within their application.
