Boyd Gaming (BOYD) found themselves in a position of inheriting additional AWS environments through mergers and acquisitions. They were not prepared for cloud integration into their environment. Boyd Gaming was unsure of the gaps additional AWS cloud environments would bring into IT from a processes, inventory, metrics, skills and governance perspective. Understanding the gaps was imperative to support the inheritance of AWS as well as establish a refreshed AWS strategy moving forward.
Boyd Gaming engaged Protiviti to proactively assess the gaps introduced in their AWS environment through mergers and acquisitions. They also needed to establish a multi-cloud strategy. Understanding the gaps in processes, inventory, metrics, skills and governance was imperative to setting the Boyd Gaming strategy. Protiviti delivered the necessary gaps for improvement, governance, needed SLAs and highlighted risk. Protiviti also assessed the inventory identifying technical debt, estimated costs for running in AWS from a hardware and licensing viewpoint. These deliverables were fundamental in establishing the Boyd’s multi-cloud strategy. “As a result of the engagement with Protiviti, we were able to accelerate our oversight and governance for a hybrid-first architecture strategy to maximize business outcomes, including the evaluation of risk exposure of onboarding emerging technologies capabilities,” explained Eric Bowers, VP Architecture & Innovation at Boyd Gaming.
There were many custom built applications that the internal teams were running in their data center. The infrastructure team needed to build the cloud capability so that the applications can be migrated to AWS cloud. At the time, there was no centralized governance. Internal teams lacked cloud expertise and experience to migrate within the businesses required timeframe without jeopardizing their ability to operate.
Protiviti assisted the client with cloud architecture and security, and quickly set up a secure, multi-account AWS environment based on AWS leading practices.
Robert Half International (RHI) had multiple global business units building applications in AWS. Internal resources were tasked with evaluating an ever-growing inventory of applications that needed to undergo thorough security evaluations prior to being authorized to operate in a production environment. The workload was growing but the team was not.
Robert Half International engaged Protiviti to perform technical security evaluations of specific applications and their Protiviti was able to provide a flexible engagement model that met the on-demand and unpredictable needs of the client by leveraging its global offensive security labs. The team members that worked on RHI’s environment held both AWS certifications and the OSCP to bring holistic insights and suggestions across cloud service architecture and configuration as well as insecure application coding and software configurations.
