Cloud Development

Why Cloud Development?

Buzzwords such as "Microsoft Azure", "Amazon Web Services" or even "Google Cloud Platform" are increasingly coming into focus as soon as one deals with software development these days.

Software applications designed to run in such cloud computing environments allow the hardware resources required to be scaled to fit, so that no costs are incurred for unused resources when running the application.

However, advantages arise from the use of cloud technologies in the creation of software systems not only through cost savings, but also in the increase of customer satisfaction. Learn from us how you can tailor your software to the needs of your users with the help of cloud technologies and the Software-as-a-Service (SAAS) concept.

Save costs

Precise scaling of resources
The available processor capacity or other critical resources such as storage space can be scaled freely in cloud environments. If your application needs more performance because more users are accessing it at the same time, you don't need to buy new server hardware for this, just adjust the configuration. In many cases, this can be done automatically, so you always use exactly the hardware resources you actually need. In this way, we ensure that no costs are incurred for unused resources when operating your cloud software, but only for those that are actually used.

Cost-effective development
When developing cloud applications, we have a large number of standard tools at our disposal, which make it possible to optimize the development process through automation. In addition, based on our many years of experience, we have a mature modular system that contains prefabricated building blocks for typical infrastructure components. This allows our developers to concentrate fully on working on the actual application. In this way, we ensure fast and cost-effective development with consistently high quality.

Easier installation and maintenance
The cloud-based approach also greatly simplifies installation and maintenance. Once we install a new version or upgrade in the cloud, all users can access it immediately. There is no need to upgrade each potential user's PC. Since the upgrades are performed by our experienced specialists, the results are predictable and reliable.

Increase flexibility and customer satisfaction

Easily customizable
Microservice architectures within cloud systems make it possible to provide the end user with targeted functionality that is needed. We orchestrate the various specialist services for you in such a way that, in conjunction with the precisely tailored scaling of resources, the software is tailored precisely to your needs and those of your users.

Accessible everywhere
Unlike conventional applications, cloud systems are accessible anytime, anywhere and via any end device with an Internet connection. This means that the user of your software is in control of where and when he accesses the application. With cloud applications, your quality assurance staff, for example, is able to collect data directly where it is generated, which means that this does not have to be done at fixed workstations.

Accessible for a wide range of devices
However, cloud systems are not only accessible anytime and anywhere, but also enable use on all Internet-enabled devices. These include technical assistance systems, cell phones, tablets, laptops and PCs. We thus offer you the possibility of no longer being dependent on special hardware, which is often expensive and only supported by the respective manufacturer for a limited period of time.

Become sustainable

Enabling innovation
When historically grown systems reach their limits, they usually cannot simply be replaced or expanded. With the help of cloud technologies, we are able to gradually move critical legacy systems to the cloud without disrupting your ongoing processes. In doing so, we provide approaches with hybrid cloud architectures to successfully modernize legacy applications around significant concepts such as AI, big data and predictive maintenance.

Improved interoperability
It is possible to achieve a much higher level of interoperability between cloud applications than is the case with isolated desktop systems. For example, it is much easier to integrate a cloud-based shopping cart system with a cloud-based accounting package than it is to get two proprietary systems to talk to each other. That's why with a cloud-based architecture, we enable rapid integration of enterprise systems, improving your workflows and business processes.

Increased security and transparency
Topics such as security, monitoring, performance, latency, throughput, etc. will continue to gain importance in the future due to Industry 4.0 and IoT. In the cloud environment, we already use a variety of standardized tools and frameworks that help make your application more secure. By additionally determining important key figures, we help you to optimize your business in the long term.

I like working at abat because there is a very pleasant, appreciative working atmosphere here with a lot of freedom. There is a lot of trust, so you also have the freedom to try out something new - but if it doesn't work out, there is also the necessary support. That's how I've learned so much! In addition, if you have problems while working in the home office, you can often quickly find colleagues who are happy to help you out via teams.
