Auction.com understands the imperative of adapting to rapidly changing real estate market dynamics. The online real estate marketplace requires an environment that can adapt to business-impacting events, such as policy changes or economic crises. To enhance its agility and scalability, Auction.com embarked on a cloud journey to migrate and modernize its infrastructure on AWS.
"Using insights from Migration Evaluator, we reduced our technology costs by 34% by running on AWS instead of our data center."
Ravi Singh, Chief Product and Technology Officer, Auction.com
Parsons used AWS tools to analyze its current state, define its target state, and develop a migration readiness plan to quickly achieve its business objectives. The company commissioned an AWS Optimization and Licensing Assessment (AWS OLA), using Migration Evaluator to analyze its hardware and software environment and gain visibility into the cost and resource readiness to build a data-driven business case. As a result, the company identified opportunities to reduce unplanned downtime, improve ongoing compute costs, and bring technology to market faster by migrating to AWS.
Koch Industries, headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, is one of the largest privately held companies in America, with more than $110 billion in annual revenues. They consolidated six data centers down to one. Migration Evaluator helped the company build its business case for migration, including demonstrating a potential 48% savings when running on AWS versus on-premises and a 26% savings on dev/test workloads.
