Seamless transformation to AWS with windchill upgrade, along with infrastructure and application management.
Headquartered in Troy, Michigan, the client is a leading global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets. The client was looking for a partner to modernize and upgrade the PTC windchill architecture in order to ensure effective and optimal utilization of the product in their environment. Birlasoft partnered with the client to undertake end-to-end transformation, including, upgradation, migration and continual management of the application while also undertaking the continual infrastructure management.
Windchill ePLM suite, at client’s end was in need of upgrade to the latest version. Previously, it was hosted to an on-premise infrastructure and demanded constant refresh in hardware and software. Additionally, incessantly growing storage and backups in IP file systems needed constant expansion.
Birlasoft proposed a ‘big bang’ approach of upgrading the application and migration to public cloud with the below solution tenets:
Birlasoft successfully carried out the application upgrade and migration for the client, while ensuring faster deployment and shorter decommissioning time for instances. Minimum outages, faster cycle times for up-scale and down-scale scenarios in computing and storage, coupled with strong, ongoing support for the application management has resulted in significant cost reductions for the client which allows the latter to focus on strengthening the Infrastructure environment and explore newer technologies to leverage upon.
