As part of Singapore Government five-year plan to embark on a cloud-first journey to migrate majority of their on-premise infrastructure to the commercial cloud, EMA has selected Cloud Comrade as their partner to leverage on our endorsed capabilities to ensure a smooth migration. 

Cloud Comrade has earned the highest standards of Microsoft by attaining Gold Cloud Platform Competency. Our high level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies as well as best-in-class capabilities for deploying the Microsoft business solutions allow us to design and deploy a strategy that aligns with EMA’s main goals. 

“By migrating to a cloud platform, EMA is able to optimize their workloads with flexibility to scale. The time saved from certain automatic functions such as backup and patching allows the company to spend more time in innovation. In addition to the enhanced security available on the platform, migration to Microsoft Azure Cloud on GCC allows EMA to further protect their data with leading ICT capabilities that are augmented by robust cybersecurity measures and systems.

Being a statutory board, it is also important for EMA to ensure that compliance requirements are met in which Microsoft Azure Cloud have specialized offerings aligned with the regulations. The single screen also allows users to easily manage and monitor their IT infrastructure.” – Wong Chee, Assistant Director of IT Infrastructure EMA.

The Process

As part of the project kick-off, Cloud Comrade embarked on the planning journey by first fully understanding EMA’s IT infrastructure and finalizing the details. Our solutions architecture then design the infrastructure followed by deployment, testing and validation. The deployment was separated into 3 stages; infrastructure foundation,  UAT deployment and Production deployment.. Once the deployment is completed, various testings and validation commenced; such as backup, recovery and performance testing. The project was then completed with transition to EMA’s managed services.
