The Challenge

Moving the heart of the business, prior to Christmas

Target was faced with the impending end of life of the hardware that houses SAP Hybris. SAP Hybris supports the Target website and online store experience. SAP Hybris is a core component of Target’s customers shopping experience, and enables almost every Target team member either directly or indirectly. Moving SAP Hybris was a daunting prospect and the Target team wanted to fully understand the risks and benefits of moving the system to the cloud on AWS.

The Solution

A plan and a way forward

Target engaged Servian to assist in planning, designing and executing the migration of SAP Hybris to AWS. Designing a new home in the cloud, based on AWS Landing Zones and Servian’s Cloud Foundations, the team were able to provide confidence in the new home, demonstrate PCI compliance, robustness, reliability and scalability whilst shortening the migration timeframe from months to weeks. Using Kubernetes, EKS, Route53 Hybrid Resolvers, AWS Inspector, the Servian team were able to build out CIS compliant, PCI compliant, monitored and resilient patterns for Hybris, and provide bootstrapping solutions for future application development.

The Benefits

Flexible Cloud Offering

Future-proof and compliant

Using Kubernetes and AWS EKS with a strong focus on hardened instances, Servian was able to deliver an environment that is appropriately safe and compliant in order to protect Target’s business and it’s customers.

Built for the Cloud

Predictable, painless deployments

Providing Target with automated code pipelines and network configuration allows a continuous integration and continuous deployment approach to development, shortening the time to market for future changes, and de-risking deployments by making them fully scripted and repeatable.

Built for the Cloud

Always online

Servian were able to utilise our foundation logging and monitoring patterns to provide Target with a fully monitored service that is able to call out issues before they evolve into full blown incidents that would impact clients.
