In search of the right cloud provider for a new infrastructure
Proof of Concepts
Hermes Germany, based in Hamburg, is a leading logistics service provider in Germany and a partner of numerous online shops and multi-channel retailers both domestically and internationally. Hermes Germany focuses on national and international parcel delivery and the handling of upstream goods flows worldwide. The consumer logistics company has become the largest independent postal service provider to private customers in Germany in the B2C and C2C sectors.
Choosing the right cloud provider is such a choice. Micromerce provided extensive support in conducting a proof of concept to select a new cloud provider. The goal was to find a suitable provider for the current infrastructure while keeping simplicity in mind. The aim was to make it as easy as possible for a functional team to develop and operate an application in the new cloud environment. Micromerce assisted in setting up the proof of concept and accompanied the internal development team throughout the process.
As part of the task, Micromerce supported the selection of evaluation criteria, guided the creation of macro architecture guidelines, and derived recommendations for action from them. When establishing account, network, and security structures within the cloud, Micromerce provided advisory assistance.
