Executive Summary

Marubeni, a renowned provider of environmental asset management services, faced the challenge of integrating with APX MarketSuite APIs for secure and efficient upload and download of CSV files. In response to this challenge, Futuralis developed a proof of concept using AWS Lambda functions, API Gateway, and S3 buckets. This solution provided Marubeni with a cost-effective, efficient, secure, and seamlessly integrated solution that revolutionized their data management operations.

The Challenge

Marubeni required a solution that could facilitate seamless integration with APX MarketSuite APIs for efficient management of CSV files. The desired solution needed to call APX APIs from AWS Cloud using Python's native libraries, while employing only necessary packages to maintain system efficiency. If this challenge went unaddressed, the company risked grappling with inefficient resource usage, escalated costs, and potential security vulnerabilities.

Why Futuralis & AWS

Futuralis was chosen for their demonstrated proficiency in crafting solutions in the AWS space. Their capabilities to devise cost-effective, efficient, and secure solutions, particularly using Python native libraries, made them the ideal partner for this initiative. Moreover, Futuralis' reputation for successfully integrating existing infrastructure with novel solutions fostered Marubeni’s trust in the engagement.

Our Solution

Futuralis partnered with Marubeni to develop a streamlined solution that integrated APX MarketSuite APIs with AWS Cloud. The process involved creating Lambda functions to call the APX POST API for uploading CSV files and retrieving them from APX when a file was uploaded to an S3 bucket. The solution was optimized by limiting the required packages to Python native libraries. API Gateway fronted the Lambda functions as APIs with API keys for authorization, ensuring secure and cost-effective use of resources.

By leveraging the flexible storage and retrieval capabilities of S3 buckets and the efficiency of Lambda functions, the solution seamlessly integrated Marubeni’s system with the APX MarketSuite.
