NCS is a data analytics and software company specializing in the detection of illicit activity in high-risk areas for government agencies and financial institutions. Through their proprietary algorithms, NCS monitors cannabis, opioids, alcohol, tobacco, pay-day lending, etc. The company’s software identifies outliers while helping agencies appropriately audit their constituents.

NCS needed a public cloud platform to host its data analytics applications and to manage its data transformation staging and pipeline testing. This included the need for a DevOps work process pipeline for development, testing, and production code for application development and production delivery of SAAS.

Qwinix combined its application development team with its AWS Cloud professional services to deploy the best practices of the AWS Well-Architected Framework (WAF) for NCS solution success.

The Challenges

Compliance

Existing infrastructure design did not meet various industry standards.

Security

Application service security perimeter was exposed to exploit the potential.

Performance

Angular website hosting was performing poorly. Backing services commonly running at high average system load causing frequent “glitches” and outages throughout the system.

The Solution

The Result

  • Additional Security Cover: Qwinix worked with the NCS team to develop tighter security requirements using AWS Well-Architected Framework (WAF). By increasing security using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), services are better insulated from security threats.
  • Application Monitoring: Utilizing AWS CloudWatch and third party services for in-depth application tracing, Qwinix helped the team at NCS to see how their applications are performing in near real-time. This data has been fed back into the system to reduce bottlenecks and increase overall application performance.
