Nederman has a long history and tradition of protecting the people, the planet and the products from the harmful effects of industrial processes.
To achieve this, they are on a constant mission of providing products and solutions for industrial air filtration that meet high expectations when it comes to quality and profitability. Contributing to efficient production, environmental benefits and a safer workplace, Nederman is dedicated to always strive for the best customer service and product quality.
To excel in its customer service, Nederman was aiming to develop more proactive tools and become more responsive to the upcoming challenges of deployed services amongst the IoT generation.
Another area in which they were also striving to be more agile and responsive was finding a faster, more robust and scalable way of detecting the specific moment when their equipment would be in need of additional attention and checkups.
As the infrastructure and the number of used services were expanding, the need for having a more automated deployment procedure was becoming inevitable.
To assist Nederman in finding the optimal solution, we – Alite International – used our firm knowledge in AWS CloudFormation, Cloud Watch and CloudTrail as a base, to which we added the use of AWS IoT Core along with AWS Lambda and came up with a solution upon which we could further apply the DevOps practices.
Once having the infrastructure established, we could easily define a CloudFormation template containing all Lambda functions and rules that are essential to be deployed in each new release of our business applications.
Outcomes of the Project
Alite International was a crucial element in this transformative journey that Nederman took.
Due to our technical expertise in the AWS services – more specifically IoT Core, AWS Lambda, AWS CludFormation, CloudWatch and CloudTrail – Nederman was able to gather invaluable insights that later contributed highly to a world-class customer service and superior products.
Furthermore, by switching to serverless architecture provided by AWS Lambda and the Serverless Framework – and by taking into consideration the already existing business applications – Alite International managed to reduce the operational costs while at the same time delivering a more robust, reliable and faster deployment of all functionalities.
