Companies are adopting this technology to interpret complicated data, for enhanced security benefits and effortless file access. That being said, AWS has been growing in popularity on an exponential rate and businesses from SMEs to large enterprises prefer using it to manage their operations.

This is precisely where Augmented Systems come into the picture.

We aim to become a trusted IT partner of choice for leading enterprises and thus we are diligent in the services offered. For instance, in the recent past, we served a client from the manufacturing domain. The objective was to gain better process visibility, improve manufacturing and production processes, and to accelerate order execution time. Considering their custom label manufacturing business, we offered services like enterprise-grade ETL, data warehouse, custom order portal, data security, managed BI and D365, AWS Glue, AWS Redshift, Databricks, and Power BI technologies.

When the company's business expertise and the capability of its cross-disciplinary teams coupled with our seamless business processes, we were able to deliver 14 percent faster order execution, 10 percent reduction in machine downtime, 7 percent improvement in average time to receive payment, and 2 times quicker availability of information on the bill of material, stock, sales, and operations.
