SaaSplaza Azure Services Enables Insulet to Fully Utilize the Potential of Dynamics AX
Insulet Corporation is on a mission to improve the lives of people with diabetes, through its revolutionary Omnipod® Insulin Management System. SaaSplaza supports this mission by providing Dynamics AX (2012 R3) on Azure combined with innovative services and SaaSplaza CloudCARE.
The dedication to bring innovative products to the market and pioneer new technologies, has resulted for Insulet to be named number 4 on the Forbes 2017 list of the "Most Innovative Growth Companies”. Insulet’s strategic plan calls for growing their business both within North America and internationally. In order to achieve a global footprint, they needed to upgrade their existing Dynamics® AX 4.0 ERP solution. Relying upon SaaSplaza’s experience, Insulet chose to leverage the latest capabilities in the Dynamics AX 2012 R3 version by deploying on Microsoft Azure. By adopting the SaaSplaza Cloud deployment strategy on Microsoft Azure, Insulet can focus on its core business without the headaches of managing the necessary infrastructure. In this way, they are guaranteed 24/7 support from SaaSplaza’s global operations centers and the peace of mind that comes with running their mission critical system on the world’s most stable Cloud platform – Microsoft Azure.
Adam Wasylyshyn, Insulet's CIO states,
“We needed to establish a strong, future-ready, transactional core, to grow the company and support business expansion in all geographic areas."
The decision criteria that Insulet evaluated given their options to upgrade and migrate to Dynamics AX 2012 R3 on Azure were as follows:
- Ability to expand globally
- Integration with ISV solutions
- High availability of application and services
- HIPPA and FDA compliant
- SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 audited
With over 300 Dynamics AX deployments, SaaSplaza consulted with and advised Insulet that migrating their AX 2012 R3 system to Microsoft Azure was their best option for a successful implementation.
Agile, Reliable and Business Critical
Several hundreds of Insulet employees are now benefiting from the full potential of Dynamics AX 2012 on Azure, including integration with Office 365, and specialized ISV solutions. Insulet can rely on SaaSplaza’s extensive experience to run and support business critical solutions. Microsoft Azure’s comprehensive set of compliance offerings, in combination with SaaSplaza’s compliancy measures, are a powerful combination to address Insulet’s security requirements. Expansion into other geographies is easy with all of the global Azure locations and ‘follow the sun’ support from SaaSplaza. The Azure environments can be scaled up and down instantly to meet peak loads at month-end or to support seasonal patterns.
