  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
  • Technical Onboarding

The human resources information systems (HRIS) division of a large global travel company was facing a hard deadline to migrate a legacy data application into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. The application was a repository of personally identifiable information (PII) employee data in four SQL databases with 52 attached drives. The HR IT group started the AWS migration but had challenges. The internal team was not aware of best practices around deployment automation and security, specifically in cloud environments. After setting up an initial lab environment and a failed security review, the project was blocked from forward progress.

While other IT groups within the company possessed sufficient knowledge to set up this environment, HRIS was wary of exposing the sensitive employee data to workers outside its division. The group needed expertise from outside the company and searched for a consulting firm to lead the project. AIM Consulting had a large on-site consulting presence at the travel company, and had earned a solid reputation in cloud after numerous large-scale AWS engagements in its IT group, and providing ServiceNow expertise to HRIS. Based on this reputation, HRIS chose AIM to lead the migration.
