Cloud’s changed the game because it’s enabled us to move rapidly and develop solutions, whether it’s an integration or it’s an application for our clients.

Business Challenge story

Like other IT solution providers, KS2 looks to accelerate design and delivery by taking advantage of cloud technologies. As an example, practice director Ed Vazquez mentions a time when KS2 needed to help a customer connect an ERP system to a database. Hand coding the integration was taking weeks.


By using a StrongLoop software (now IBM API Connect) boilerplate available via the IBM Bluemix platform, KS2 completed the integration within an hour.


KS2 cut 80 to 120 hours of coding out of the ERP integration project, and the company continues to save time and meet customer needs faster by tapping into resources available in the cloud.
