AWS SaaS Enablement

Flux7 Designs and Builds Architecture SaaS Applications

Digital business requires applications that are flexible and provide customer experiences that drive loyalty and support new ways of doing business. Traditional architectures can be woefully inadequate, challenged with complex monolithic applications and carry technical debt that slows development progress.

 

As organizations strive to improve their ability to rapidly respond to opportunities and achieve continuous delivery, they need architectures and workflows that support the demands of modern applications.  Reskilling and retooling are critical steps to enable agile ways of working and delivering customer value through the adoption of SaaS using cloud technology, DevOps and Agile practices. 

 

Application development and IT teams improve their ability to lead digital software innovation and application modernization efforts with support from Flux7’s AWS SaaS services. We collaborate with customers to develop highly available, secure, and scalable SaaS solutions including API design, microservices architecture, and event-driven processing. By building in intelligent automation and compliance while teaching customers along the way, we help you accelerate projects, focus on innovation and build long-term agility

Secure: Mitigate risk by implementing security at multiple layers. Preventative, detective, corrective, recovery, deterrent and compensating controls are implemented to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the application data and services.

 

RBAC (Role-Based Access Control): Implement secure applications and ensure users only perform the allowed actions, according to the roles and tenant. Using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), RBAC is continuously utilized, from the design of the application to the implementation.

 

Data Isolation Multi-Tenancy: Architect data models which will allow isolation of tenants so users can only access the data they have permission to view.

 

API Protection: Secure APIs with Amazon API Gateway, IAM, and Amazon Cognito. We also ensure API uptime by preventing malicious requests before reaching code as detailed in this blog.

 

Compliance: Meet industry compliance requirements including PCI, PII, HIPAA and FedRamp by relying on proven best practices.

 

Landing Zone: A scalable, secure Landing Zone allowing efficient development is a key to a successful SaaS. Flux7 Landing Zone best practices enable you to quickly establish a secure baseline and focus on the application’s business value. 

Scalable: Gain the benefits of Infrastructure as Code, and optimize cost by balancing resources to align with customer demand in peaks and dips.

 

Resiliency and Uptime: SaaS application are typically comprised of microservices. While a service is down, it should not impact the rest of the application. We build the test procedures ensuring the global application will perform as expected when individual incidents happen.

 

Monitoring and Uptime: Building resilient architecture is not enough. Gain insights from advanced metrics, monitoring, uptime tracking and alerting to ensure you are meeting your business goals.

 

DevOps: The ability to deploy frequently allows to innovate frequently and becomes an advantage by creating a faster track to revenue or increasing customer loyalty. We help you create repeatable builds and rollback processes.

 

Analytics: Build a dashboard to help speak to business leaders by providing insights on the application usage for better decision-making.

 

Agile: Our Agile practice means you benefit from our team’s ability to implement efficiently, provide transparency throughout the project, and always focus on delivering incremental business value.

Flux7 uses its DevOps & Security experience to help customers design from end-to-end, write, deploy, operate & optimize SaaS applications on AWS. Starting from understanding the business requirement, we help build a strategy and roadmap which we assist in implementing using our Agile processes.
