Executive Summary

NTT Mimarlık is an architecture design company and their employees are working remotely since the pandemic has been started in 2020. Instead of investing on hardware, they want to provide their employees digital workplace which is much more cost-optimized solution rather than capital expense. So that they needed to have virtual desktop infrastructure to design their projects online and to be able to work remotely, and also see the projects which the employees work together. In this case, this article includes how the businesses save time, money, and capital expenses by using cloud infrastructure.

Customer Challenge

Due to the customer industry, they have temporary works with temporary designers who need to involve in the projects. Hiring temporary designers for the short-term projects prepare a substructure for new investments. However, the customer has not wanted to expand their capital for the hardware and software. They were also aware of the lack of hardware supply chain and physical places to store these hardware, as well. Additionally, when they close the project, these architects are not also working with NTT Mimarlık, any more. That is why, NTT Mimarlık needs to provide their temporary employees with temporary workplace.

In the meanwhile, during pandemic situation, the employees need to work remotely and work online on the projects. They should also access the documents sharing between the colleagues on the cloud and reach the documents out anywhere. With the local resources, it is hard to provide this environment to the employees.

Since the size of the documents working by the architects are huge, the employees could not share them with each other in minutes. In order to decrease the margin of error, they would like to share the documents immediately with the colleagues involved in the same project to fix the error quickly. Nevertheless, they lose time to realize the each other’s error and to fix it while working on their local resources. Because they cannot share the huge sized documents with one another. They could be aware of the errors, if only they are able to see the current version of the documents related to the projects.

Lastly, NTT Mimarlık’s employees store the project files on their local system and sometimes on their personal workplaces, and it causes the lack of confidentiality. In addition to that, the employees have been saved the data on local resources. So that there is always a possibility to be hacked or stolen the data, and they might lose their computer with the all data of the projects.

About NTT Mimarlık

NTT Architects, founded in 2004, goes on the design process by balancing the art and the technics of architecture with a unique contemporary mentality, believing that the design process should be open to share and collective, keeping the company away from replications knowing that every project has a unique scenary and a soul, also believing that the creativity, adequate and up-to-date structural knowledge could be turned into a well architectural product.

Partner solution

As LimonCloud gets the need from the customer in the first meeting and is able to design a technical architecture according to their needs, the requirements were so obvious. The customer needs high available, secure, agile and cost-optimized cloud technology on digital workplace paying on demand within the individual usage on the company.

In order to decrease capital expenses and investment on the hardware, the cloud technology would provide them an on demand payment method which they do pay for what they use on the cloud. Additionally, for every single usage, they could choose different types of machine on Amazon WorkSpaces and optimize the solution. They could also informed about the auto-stop feature of Amazon WorkSpaces service. With that feature, they would be able to save money for the time which they do not work on their workplaces. Additionally, digital workplace on AWS ensures time saving for the people who remotely works on the same projects by sharing big size documents with each other and reviewing the documents immediately. Then if they have any error on the files, the colleagues can intervene the failures on the files in minutes. This provides them with time saving on the process. Besides, cloud technologies procure an opportunity to prevent loss of data by saving the files on AWS.

Last but not least, since the files of NTT Mimarlık’s projects should be in safe according to the network, the customer has needed VPC and Active Directory service with public and private subnets, and also an VPC connection. In the lights of these information, LimonCloud has planned to set up a small EC2 and run it on demand. In this process, NTT Mimarlık and LimonCloud has been in collaboration to arrange all the environment for the requirements.
