Our latest footprints
“Over time this ad hoc approach resulted in chaos. We had no framework to scale from, a total reliance on an IT team for development, and security weaknesses. Costs were also spiraling, both in terms of maintaining our legacy environment, and not being able to reap the full efficiencies of being in the cloud.”
Genesis identified the need to build a modern Azure platform which could support its technology environment in a secure, scalable, and standardised way going forward.
To take this strategic step, Genesis opted for LAB3 Bedrock which could quickly provide unified organisational structures, improved cyber security, overcome blockers to internal innovation, provide better experiences for people, and allow Genesis to value-add sooner.
“Our desire is to democratise technology for employees and empower our people to innovate themselves without relying on our IT team. Our Modern Cloud is designed to support modern applications and ultimately improve online services for customers,” said Deakin Wilson, Genesis, Cloud & Infrastructure Platform Owner.
The vision of Genesis to modernise in Azure covers both its IT and OT environments.
“Bedrock puts Genesis in a prime position to use the latest cloud technology in operational environments. With IoT and data analytics we can improve sustainability in the generation and supply of power, and also with infrastructure management,” said Deakin Wilson.
OUTCOMES AT A GLANCE
OUR FEARLESS APPROACH
A key feature of LAB3 Bedrock is automation. This enables rapid deployment which is extensive and secure. Bedrock is comprised of ready-made modular components which cater to the holistic nature of an enterprise grade Azure Platform. These modular components are not only technical but also include workshops, design documents, and how-to guides, all paired with our code.
Bedrock takes out complexity and enables a low barrier of entry to the benefits of cloud services. It is built and designed to scale through automation, without sacrificing security controls. This means Genesis can easily modernise in the cloud as the need arises and only consume services as they are required.
The Bedrock deployment is also compliant with government requirements and has cyber security measures which are consistent with IRAP, ISO/ISM27001 and NZISM standards.
As part of the deployment, LAB3 worked in tandem with Genesis to ensure its team was given opportunities to upskill in Azure, automation, and DevOps. This helped drive uptake and innovation at every stage.
“Utilizing the Bedrock platform has enabled Genesis to achieve a scalable, standardised and secure cloud mindset across the team, and improve technology cost management across the business,” says Deakin Wilson. “One of the first initiatives we embarked on in our new environment was to build a model and template for a new website. Having done it once, we were then able to build 3 more websites inside two weeks.”
“Our ability to move with so much speed is one of the real benefits of moving to a modern cloud environment and infrastructure as code approach. Once we have built models and templates for an existing use case, we can move incredibly fast to version this for new use cases. That’s just gold.”
