Dieter JohoHead of IT Development at HRM Systems AG
Hello Dieter, can you briefly explain what you do at HRM Systems?
We offer our customers software and services in the areas of daily sickness benefits, accident insurance and company health management. Through automation and our know-how we make these processes safer and more efficient.
What is your role at HRM Systems?
I am head of IT development and responsible for programming and integrating our applications.
What challenges did you face with your application and infrastructure before we started working together?
For our first SaaS application, we needed a high-performance and scalable environment, which was operated entirely in Switzerland due to the data protection requirements of our customers. Nevertheless, we wanted a fully automated build and deployment pipeline. So HRM Systems decided to build an OpenShift cluster for its own container platform in a Swiss data center.
How did you hear about VSHN and why did you choose APPUiO as your container platform?
We had a very high time pressure in the project. So it was ideal that we could start with our application on the APPUiO Public platform and gain first experiences.
What have we achieved together and how do we currently support you?
APPUiO’s Managed offer including setup and operation of the container platform was the optimal solution for HRM System. The Managed Private Cluster was built on cloudscale.ch. The container platform was successfully implemented in 2017 and has been in operation since then. Thus APPUiO was our stepping stone into the cloud. The security, flexibility and competence convinced us and our customers.
What works well at/with VSHN?
With APPUiO HRM Systems can concentrate on their core business, the application and deployment, and APPUiO ensures the operation of the platform. In addition, the establishment of the container platform has ensured the resource management of HRM Systems. Special attention was also paid to security features.
Why or for what would you recommend us?
It was ideal for us to have a partner whom we could call in for the missing know-how. This allows us to gain our own experience without jeopardizing the progress of the project. Even today, we still welcome the technically sound advice of VSHN.
Thank you very much, Dieter. We very much appreciate being able to count HRM Systems among our partners and look forward to a continued successful cooperation.
