First Merchants was in an aggressive growth and acquisition mode, but their legacy operating model was unable to efficiently take on the various platforms and workloads of the financial institutions they were acquiring.
They wanted to extend their data center to quickly start leveraging cloud operating models that modernized their technology approach, with the goal of eventually working their way into the cloud over the next 3 to 5 years, while also having a data center footprint by employing a hybrid cloud model.
Machines and Cloud’s relationship with First Merchants began with a two-day visioning workshop during which it was discovered that an agile, native AWS approach was much better suited to their business, operations, and budget.
Through close collaboration, Machines and Cloud was able to expedite the cloud journey due to the increased knowledge and skillsets of the combined teams. This allowed the Machines and Cloud team to reallocate those dollars and quickly shift the project focus to accelerating the migration-strategy phase.
Machines and Cloud also recommended SCPs for limiting deployment to approved Regions, and implemented a strategy for deploying users and roles for SSO configuration.
TennCare is the state of Tennessee’s managed Medicaid agency focused on improving lives through high-quality, cost-effective care.
TennCare was frustrated by the lack of accountability and leadership with their (now) former external IT management vendor and were seeking a new Operations and Management (O&M) Partner to support the ongoing daily IT operations and system enhancement requests.
Machines and Cloud’s ServiceNow expertise combined with an industry-leading Managed Services team has taken on TennCare’s O&M activities, addressing immediate issues and gaps left unresolved by the prior vendor.
In addition, Machines and Cloud is collaborating with TennCare’s leadership to build long term growth and operational strategy using the latest technology and results-oriented services professionals.
Avenu had acquired another company that had an Azure foundation. That company had a pay-as-you-go payment plan, paid for by an individual employee instead of the IT team. In addition to this payment plan, Avenu recognized that the application they were using was not sustainable from a cloud perspective.
This application hosted multiple different web pages for its clients. These pages needed to scale to meet the needs of each individual client.
First, Machines and Cloud designed and deployed an initial enterprise framework. Next, Avenu’s current application was migrated out of VM into Azure Web Apps.
Machines and Cloud helped Avenu successfully implement and migrate to an Azure Framework and their applications were brought under enterprise governance. The responsibility of managing Avenu’s public cloud was shifted to the IT department, making them the gatekeeper to public cloud services.
As a result, Avenu was then able to deploy a cloud framework that would grow their Azure footprint over time.

Prime Therapeutics is a leading pharmacy benefit management (PBM) firm owned by 18 not-for-profit Blue Cross and Blue Shield health plans across the United States.
Prime Therapeutics had developed a new data and analytics platform, critical to their business operations and growth strategy. Soon after selecting Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to host it, Prime’s leadership accelerated the project’s go-live date, requiring IT to onboard data and the new analytics platform in just six weeks. Prime’s IT team realized they didn’t have the skills in-house to deliver on the new timeline, so they called Machines and Cloud.
Machines and Cloud quickly conducted a technical assessment, creating a rapid development and deployment plan that met leadership’s accelerated timelines. The plan included peer-shadowing routines designed to train up the Prime IT team on design and implementation, ensuring self-sufficiency post-launch.
In addition, Machines and Cloud incorporated additional cybersecurity measures into the new GCP environment to ensure Client’s data environment exceeded HIPAA compliance standards.
