The master agreement includes the conceptual design and implementation of cloud services as well as the cloud platform. fme will design and implement interfaces for the connection to cloud services and traditional systems as well as advise on projects for the implementation or migration of applications to the cloud platform. The development of CI/CD pipelines for the automation of deployment and testing as well as the integration into existing monitoring and logging solutions are also part of the scope of the master agreement.
“We are glad to have found such a competent cloud services partner in fme,” says Mirco Schiefer, Head of Archiving & Backend Systems at Volkswagen Financial Services AG. “One of our first joint projects will be to move an important system into the cloud. Currently, this is operated locally by the national subsidiaries. “Centralized administration in the cloud simplifies internal processes and reduces operations costs,” explains M. Schiefer.
“The conclusion of the master agreement with Volkswagen Financial Services AG is an important milestone for us and continues the cloud success story of fme”, announces Daniel Pelke, Executive Board Member of fme AG, pleasantly. “Another exciting project is the replatforming of the internal website together with our client. This will allow the shutdown of several dedicated servers and the intranet can be implemented as a long-term solution in the private cloud,” D. Pelke continues. The new cloud solution includes a modern database and automatic updates for operating system, virus scanner, etc., and helps to simplify the operation.
