Yet, to keep pace with modern world trends and rising customer expectations, the company realized that it needed to upgrade and modernize its solutions.
IGA wanted to enhance its offering and explore Microsoft Azure. Since their applications are scaling, they are facing numerous challenges related to availability, rolling out fixes, and updates to their end-users. In addition, the current infrastructure is affecting agility and scalability during surges, and that does not align with their vision.
To modernize the application and to transition to the cloud, INSOMEA supported the software company throughout the whole moving to the cloud journey. In fact, the purpose of this transition was to enhance productivity, customer experience, and minimize costs.

To accelerate growth and meet its rising customer expectations, the company needed to modernize its applications to a more flexible and scalable cloud-based solution. With the help of INSOMEA, IGA migrated to Microsoft Azure. The company can now offer a broad range of modern solutions to customers.
Post assessment, INSOMEA suggested migrating to Microsoft Azure to drive efficiency, high-code deployments, and scale at demands to deliver exceptional business success and experience to its users.
INSOMEA experts team designed and implemented the target environment in Microsoft Azure in such a way that it will be able to support the containerized application with the desired functionality. The environment will also support scalability without the need to change the application source code and development process.
“The migration of the virtual machines was made in a record time by our partner INSOMEA. INSOMEA’s team were very available. They spent days and nights working on the project: it needed to be operational as soon as possible. “Says Meher Jedidi – CEO IGA Tunisia.
INSOMEA achieved the primary objective of IGA to modernize the application without the need to change/alter the source code. Additionally, the solution was deployed through automation, eliminating the need for highly skilled administrators and supervision.
This transformation was done with minimalist changes on the solution development due to the usage of the containerization and DevOps approaches which helped the team for refactoring of the solution and the uses of the automated process.
To accelerate time to market and deliver new experiences, IGA worked on delivering their SaaS solution “SEVA” using 99% of their environment in deploying the solutions on Microsoft Azure based on PaaS services.
To keep the client’s toolbox up to date, security is crucial. Azure Modern App Development provides multi-layered security across code, pipelines, runtimes, and databases. IGA was able to cover greater security coverage with fewer complications thanks to Azure security. The toolkit’s detection, reaction, and uptime have all improved thanks to the use of cloud intelligence.
Once the platform is migrated and running on Azure, IGA is modernizing its application and joining the futuristic era. To keep up with the competitors, it is vital to modernize their applications.
They keep enhancing their applications to get rid of the servers and use cloud services while modernizing the application. They are rearchitecting their applications to be containers based.
In fact, modernizing applications will help IGA: have better functionality, ensure top security, meet compliance, reduce costs, be agile and have better customer support.
Next step for IGA is to publish their solution on Microsoft Marketplace. By publishing their solution to the marketplace, they will generate more visibility; Visible in all Azure public regions, this will improve brand awareness and promotion. Also, new leads and sales opportunities.
