MUMBAI, INDIA: DITA Exchange, a structured content management provider for regulated industries, has saved significant costs after moving to the AWS cloud.

Dx4—the product is used by customers from global life sciences enterprises to Fortune 500 financial companies. Therefore, as a growing enterprise, DITA Exchange was looking at not only cost savings, but also increased productivity. As a result, it put all the 50 people including employees, consultants and contractors on the cloud.



“Blue Star Infotech played a pivotal role right from assessment, implementation to post-implementation support in our vision to move to cloud. It built the IT infrastructure on AWS along with the integration with Office 365 which provided us with the benefits of both IaaS and SaaS simultaneously. This in turn helped us reduce the time and effort for spinning up new instances, back-ups and also enhancing the collaboration methodologies across our organization,” said Dhirendra Yadav, Technology Lead, Cloud Services, DITA Exchange.

“It was important for BSIL to recognize that DitaExchange was integrating its applications on AWS platforms which would need more precision in terms of interoperability or the ability of systems to communicate with one another within the cloud framework. Other functional areas such as reducing the transition time period towards adopting a new system policy and minimizing vulnerability of the company’s data when moving to AWS were other areas of concern. Also from the financial standpoint, the challenge was to tackle the bandwidth cost of migration and the time it took to transfer,” said, Hitendra Shinde,  Business Head, BSIL.

The SMB is seeing the benefits of migrating to the cloud. Said Yadav, “We have reduced hosting and infrastructure costs by 50 percent; IT staff costs by 70 percent and the cost of unplanned downtime on productivity has reduced by 90 percent.”

Other benefits include reduction in average time to deploy new applications by 60 percent, to deploy new hardware by 99 percent and to respond to unexpected changes by 95 percent, he said.
