Software company, Prodevelop, has completed the migration of its Posidonia Port Community System (PCS) to the cloud for the Port Authority of Gijón (PAG) to leverage the benefits of a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
The change from on-premise to the cloud was carried out swiftly, with the port being able to continue offering its services without any interruptions, Prodevelop reported.
Working in the cloud is expected to allow the Port Authority to have greater control over expenditure, as payment is recurrent and does not require a large initial investment.
PAG will also benefit from any updates to the solution without having to pay.
Additionally, by hosting on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the port will have a service quality guarantee from Amazon and the advantages of Prodevelop through its certifications for ENS medium security level, ISO 20000 and ISO 27001.
