A leading global healthcare provider sought to leverage cloud infrastructure to build a secure, scalable and industry-compliant cloud platform that its internal teams can use for large and complex analytics in the US and Europe. The platform must follow the region-wise compliance requirements. The entire engagement encompassed a multi-vendor, multi-region deployment with a tight timeline.
The Business Challenge
The client wanted to build a data analytics platform for its teams to use across Europe and the US. The platform must be flexible, scalable, secure and conform to the regional standards and compliance on healthcare data.
Other Platforms: Jenkins, HashiCorp Terraform, GitHub, Chef, Ansible, New Relic
Automation - Built CI/CD Jenkins pipelines to deploy AWS cloud components using Infrastructure as code (IaC) - (Git + Terraform).
Implemented systems software configuration/patching automation using Chef and Ansible to adhere with GEHC compliance and security controls.
