Client Business Description

Company Background

ForecastHR approached Beyond Key to develop a web application that had a simplified workflow with a clean interface and a highly flexible tool that could be easily used by different levels of employees in the organization. They wanted to help Human Resource managers and senior members of the organization have an Intelligent workforce analytics platform where they could easily identify the resource needs of the company. The platform was required to be hosted on the cloud and have the capability to integrate with any existing HR platforms.

How We Helped

Beyond Key anticipated the need of hosting this “Talent management and workforce planning software” on AWS cloud. There was an evident challenge foreseen by the developers far ahead of launching the software and that was the storage of huge amounts of data with multiple users of the application at all levels. AWS cloud was the clear cut answer.

Our Solution

Beyond Key analyzed all the circumstances and suggested using AWS cloud computing services to help ForecastHR overcome problems related to server hosting and database. Beyond Key suggested the following key services provided by AWS:

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud- AWS EC2

Relational Database Service - AWS-RDS(MySQL)

SaaS Model - Isolated Databases for advanced security

Client’s requirements were AWS auto-scaling, Mysql high-performance database, increased concurrent users, and reduction in CPU use. After each season, servers were shut down manually, thereby reducing cost.


ForecastHR now has a successful web solution implemented for recruiting employees within the organization. It provides opportunities for talent retention and motivation.

  • Faster deployment speed

    Hosting the complete solution on AWS cloud using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (AWS EC2) eliminated the need to invest in hardware up front, so the client could develop and deploy the application faster.

  • Ease of Access and control

    Users have complete administrative control over their virtual servers with Amazon EC2. Essentially, it provides the same level of access and control as a physical server operated locally in the office.

  • Scalability

    Compute instances are easily managed through the Amazon EC2 web interface which allows users to scale up or down, boot instances, and configure processor settings with a few clicks of a mouse

  • Platform of Your Choice

    When you launch an instance in EC2, you get the ability to run an operating system of your choice.

  • Security

    EC2 has multiple built-in security features. Users have complete control over who can access the instances in the cloud.

  • Flexibility

    Amazon EC2 has security groups that act as virtual firewalls to control traffic to one or multiple instances. Users can establish rules for each security group and modify rules at any time.

  • Database solutions

    Complex administration processes like patching database software, backing up databases, and enabling point-in-time recovery are managed automatically. Scaling storage and compute resources can be performed by a single API call.

  • Multi-AZ deployment

    Multi-AZ deployments aim to provide enhanced availability and data durability for MySQL instances

  • Cost efficient

    The architecture cost was much less than using native server hosting services by the pay-as-yougo pricing model of AWS.

  • Delivery time optimization

    One of the most compelling benefits of Isolated databases was to increase infrastructure delivery speed by 90x by using the AWS Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform. Not only did it reduce time to deliver the necessary infrastructure, but it enabled capacity to handle transient workloads at a variable cost.
