SaaS Delivery Model for IoT.

VEM Sistemi is an Italian System Integrator providing ICT solutions. The company chose beSharp as a technological partner to create Factorii Easy Production Improvement, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform designed for managing all the digital factory functions (Industry 4.0), in particular, performance real-time monitoring and planned and predictive maintenance of industrial machinery in order to improve production processes.

“We were almost new to the SaaS delivery model and the expertise of beSharp’s team immediately ensured us the confidence we were looking for. beSharp’s cloud experts supported us at every stage of the project with unmatched consulting expertise. We developed a solution which perfectly fits our needs and allows us to grow faster than we thought.”

The Challenge

  • Obtaining a flexible, scalable and cost-effective solution for the ingestion of all the data coming from customers’ Industrial equipment (IoT) taking advantage of the SaaS delivery model.
  • Implementing a multi-tenant, highly available solution, able to adapt to any type of workload, growing along with their business by responding with adaptive scaling.
  • Automating the deployment phases, simplifying control and management of the infrastructure and implementing standard processes of testing and validation of each release.

The Solution

  • Adoption of the Serverless model based on Lambda Functions and Amazon API Gateway and implementation of a more granular architecture based on microservices.
  • Implementation of the SaaS delivery model for the distribution of the new product designed and built according to the Well-Architected Framework and to the AWS SaaS best practices.
  • Implementation of CI/CD pipelines through the use of AWS CodePipeline, AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy, and a strict division into different development environments: dev to keep control on all the changes affecting the application core, staging used to test application’s changes in a production-like infrastructure, validated also by demo users and production.

The Benefits

Thanks to a microservice architecture, VEM Sistemi was able to optimize resource consumption, costs, and performances while keeping a granular control over every single resource.

Through the SaaS delivery model, VEM Sistemi has revolutionized the product distribution process and achieved global reach. Maintainability and troubleshooting have been exponentially improved, too.

Thanks to the automation of the deployment phases, VEM Sistemi has speeded up both the development and the production processes and obtained tools for the early detection of bugs and for the prediction of malfunctions.

About beSharp and AWS

beSharp and VEM Sistemi worked together to create an Industry 4.0 solution based on a microservices architecture leveraging on the Software-as-a-Services delivery model.

As part of the AWS APN Partner Network, beSharp has achieved acknowledgments and competencies such as DevOps Competency and Well-Architected Framework partnership, both applied in every phase of the design and of the implementation of the solution.

Through an on-the-job training approach, beSharp has also provided VEM Sistemi developers with the tools they need to understand and master the concepts and the tools the SaaS paradigm is based on to enable them to take full advantage of it.
