How will performance be measured:
  • This project will deliver upgrades on a data services platform to improve robustness and functionality. It will also provide functional areas with new and comprehensive reporting and data analysis capabilities. Further, The Azure cloud platform provides many managed Platforms as a Service (PaaS) services that can save cost and reduce maintenance and support overhead for key components of the Indigo platform. There are also some technologies in use by Indigo that are not natively supported on the Azure platform. As a result, the migration effort will not be a "lift and shift" of the Indigo platform, but instead will involve a redesign effort with a view towards maximizing usage of Azure services. This effort will involve several iterations of a proof of concept (POC) to find the architecture most suited for our needs.
