Rapidly isolate and solve P-A-S-S™ issues across the Technology stack – Bring your business back to normal quickly

With more and more businesses becoming digital and the constantly increasing pace of business today, any Performance, Availability, Security and Scalability (P-A-S-S™) related disruptions in the IT systems immediately translates to loss of customer satisfaction and revenue. Avekshaa's Break Fix solutions address the most critical Performance, Availability, Security and Scalability P-A-S-S™ issues to quickly get your.

Our Approach

  • Avekshaa's tried and tested Optimization and Audit methodology from our P-A-S-S™ Assurance Platform helps define a precise optimization strategy for a wide range of technologies in both On-premise and Cloud model.
  • We customize our strategy to your IT environment and collect relevant data points across the entire system. The P-A-S-S™ Assurance Platform helps analyse the collected data for the technology stack and identifies bottlenecks as well as optimization opportunities across the system.
  • Our proprietary methodology helps our team reach the impacted layer faster and optimize the entire technology stack: operating system, hardware, network, application servers, web servers, database servers and all peripheral components.
  • We work with your teams to implement solutions for the identified bottlenecks and also provide actionable plans with mid-term and long-term recommendations.
  • We work independent of any application performance management (APM) tools and in the absence of specific APM tools in the customer's environment, we leverage the power of native tools and applications bundled with the operating system/database/JVMs. The raw data from native tools is then analysed using Avekshaa's P-A-S-S™ Assurance Platform to resolve issues swiftly and with ZERO processing over-head on your systems.

Scalable Architecture for tomorrow's business

Avekshaa defines architectures that are inherently scalable for meeting your specific business demands. We also provide independent architecture reviews from Performance, Availability, Security and Scalability perspective using Avekshaa's P-A-S-S™ Architecture review methodology. The output of the architecture review exercise provides key inputs to the project sponsors to assist in decision-making and can have a long-term positive impact on the system's ability to meet growing business demands.

Our Approach

  • Our methodology spans a range of activities like NFR formalization and prioritization workshops with the system stakeholders.
  • We identify architectural gaps from the Performance, Availability, Security and Scalability (P-A-S-S™) perspective and evaluate architectural best practices. Our architecture review methodology identifies the risks, trade-offs and sensitivities in the architecture.
  • We leverage technology advances as well as our experience with complex hyper-scale applications to recommend architectural alternatives that address the identified risks.
  • We work with your architecture team to implement solutions for the identified gaps and also provide actionable plan with mid-term and long-term recommendations.
