Data from Environmental Data Resources (EDR) enables $1 trillion in transactions per year and its clients include some of the world’s largest financial services companies. It needed to develop and test reliable production environments to reduce time-to-market and improve software quality.

Modernizing Software Development

EDR had a series of manual test and production environments in the AWS console. These were configured through ad-hoc ticket driven processes. Our team needed to modernize and accelerate this process. A team of 50+ engineers, QA testers, business analysts, architects, and product managers from Modus Create joined hands with EDR’s development team to drive the project. 

The team performed a complete Agile transformation by overhauling EDR’s existing engineering practices. It introduced a modernized version control system, a microservices architecture for existing products, and CI solutions for testing and deployment.

Shortening the SDLC

AWS dramatically enhanced the capabilities of EDR’s platform and created a scalable cloud-based infrastructure. The deployment of AWS tools created a more efficient DevOps infrastructure, reducing the time it took to create new instances and shortening the SDLC. Automated creation of test and development environments provided EDR a reliable way to ensure new environments adhered to industry best practices.
