AVASANT CASE STUDY
Accounting Software Provisioning on AWS
with Enhanced Security and Performance
Avasant, a leading management consulting firm, collaborated with Futuralis to modernize their IT infrastructure. Facing challenges with outdated systems and security concerns, Avasant required a comprehensive solution, which Futuralis delivered by deploying Windows Server 2022 on AWS, integrating multi-factor authentication and backups, and automating infrastructure provisioning. This led to improved performance, security, and efficiency.
Performance/Scalability: Outdated systems hindered accounting software effectiveness and growth. Security Risks: Lacked secure remote access and multi-factor authentication - critical for data protection. Data Integrity: Needed robust backup and recovery strategies. Operational Inefficiency: Manual infrastructure provisioning limited scalability. Failure to address these issues would have impacted Avasant’s operational efficiency and competitive edge.
