Seamless legacy modernization: ensuring uninterrupted precision farming operations
The existing precision farming software had already been serving thousands of customers worldwide, and any disruption to their operation was simply not an option. With this in consideration, we planned and executed a seamless legacy modernization process that required the utmost precision and care.
Our primary objective was to ensure that the entire process was unnoticeable and would have no impact on the day-to-day activities of our client and their global user base.
Elevating IoT integration and data analytics
At first glance, the project seemed primarily focused on modernizing the current components of the precision farming software. Yet, during the discovery phase, we delved into the client’s business needs and identified additional opportunities for leveraging IoT development services for enhanced precision farming solutions.
We discovered that the client hasn’t used the full potential of IoT. It is possible to enable real-time data collection and add extra features like data analytics and intuitive dashboards to the product.
Optimizing efficiency: transitioning to AWS Cloud for cost savings and scalability
Going further to IoT maintenance, we came to the conclusion that the cloud services used currently are not efficient anymore. Besides, the client’s plan is to expand, so the price of the current system will grow as more devices are added.
Our tech team has profound expertise in cloud services and figured that AWS Cloud is a more reasonable alternative for the client’s needs and budget. Its maintenance is not only worthwhile but also can save up to 20% of operational costs.
Aligning vision and budget: crafting a resilient architecture for global operations
Now that we aligned the vision of the client’s business, we went on to analyze the data. Since thousands of farmers use the client’s products worldwide, the system needs to be flexible and easy to control remotely. The need to create a durable and resilient architecture of the precision farming software that would cover the current and future operations appeared.
While the journey on the exploration of the hidden benefits of technology sounds amusing, there are concerns that bother all clients, and it is budget. In particular, our client sought assurance of the financial feasibility of the plan.
The Euristiq team prepared a cost estimate and the roadmap of the project based on the convenience of the client’s conditions. It envisages the division of the project into milestones to ensure smooth releases that correspond to the client’s financial capabilities.
