Migration to the "Cloud Model"!


Mynd has adopted the cloud technology for all hosted applications and completely migrated to enterprise cloud model with a disaster recovery site in place. This becomes a success story at industry levels of all verticals. The Mynd applications that customers are accessing today for their day-to-day process are now placed in cloud.

Cloud computing is simply a new way of looking at and talking about virtual setup. More precisely, instead of having a software application running in a server room, the application runs in a datacenter. And, this datacenter doesn't need to be within or near the office premises. In fact, you may not even know where the datacenter is!

Cloud computing is actually just a new name for an old idea. In fact, since the last few years we are using cloud. E.g. our personal e-mails (Yahoo, Google etc..), our online access to Bank Accounts …Then what’s the difference? The difference is in terms of offered services & the technology used in the cloud. All cloud infrastructure runs in virtualization and majorly, three different services are offered by any leading cloud service provider.

  • Ø  IaaS           :           Infrastructure as a Service
  • Ø  SaaS          :           Software as a Service
  • Ø  PaaS          :           Platform as a Service.



  • ·      Limitless Scalability: With the expansion of Business, add-on infrastructure resources are always on high demand. Resources can increase in on-a-fly.
  • ·        Physical & Virtual Security: Data centers are quite robust as compared to your local server room.
  • ·        High Density Power: No need to worry for prolonged power-cuts, run out of diesel for your generator.
  • ·     Broad Connectivity Choice: Multiple internet service providers with unlimited bandwidth.
  • ·         Low Cloud cost: Pay as per use concept and optimal cost as compared to your high operational cost.


Challenges for adopting new technologies

  • ·      Seamless migration of customer application & database within SLA i.e. “No application down time” objective. You can't afford a downtime beyond SLA, as signed & agreed with the customer.
  • ·         Configuration Dependencies: As the new setup is with different architecture. The new setup is under virtualization with redundancy at all levels and hence the application configurations as well as offered SaaS services were typically a challenged one.
  • ·         No Data Loss during migration. This involves the migration of huge customer data from old setup to new setup and goes live within the SLA without any data loss for almost 150+ odd customers.


How is Mynd Placed today?

·     The entire infrastructure is in Enterprise Public Cloud with SIFY, a TIER III standard data center with IaaS, SaaS & PaaS services with primary data center located at Mumbai and disaster recovery data center located at Bangalore; which are in two different seismic zones.
  •         Redundancy (Fail over) at each level i.e. Application, Router, Firewall, SAN & ISP.
  • ·         A world class service with uptime SLA of 99.95%.
  • ·         3A Service i.e. Access from Anywhere at Anytime.
  • ·         Disaster site i.e. data is safe with RPO & RTO of 30 mins & 2 Hr. respectively.
  • ·         BCP plan with the start of operation in less than one day.
  • ·       Hosted service with low cost (including DR). Almost 30% saving on monthly recurring cost. 
  •         No congestion, no bandwidth issue i.e. hassle free access even with heavy load (month end)
  • ·         Compliance service as per ISO 27001 & SSAE 16.

                                            Business Process Management (BPM)

Business process management (BPM) is a systematic approach to making an organization's workflow more effective, more efficient and more capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment. A business process is an activity or set of activities that will accomplish a specific organizational goal.

The goal of BPM is to reduce human error and miscommunication and concerned with maintaining and optimizing an organization's equipment and core operations.

BPM is often a point of connection within a company between the line-of-business (LOB) and the IT department. Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) and Business Process Management Notation (BPMN) were both created to facilitate communication between IT and the LOB. Both languages are easy to read and learn, so that business people can quickly learn to use them and design processes. Both BPEL and BPMN adhere to the basic rules of programming, so that processes designed in either language are easy for developers to translate into hard code.

There are three different kinds of BPM frameworks available in the market today. 
  • Horizontal frameworks deal with design and development of business processes and are generally focused on technology and reuse. 
  • Vertical BPM frameworks focus on a specific set of coordinated tasks and have pre-built templates that can be readily configured and deployed. 
  • Full-service BPM suites have five basic components:
  • Process discovery and project scoping
  • Process modeling and design
  • Business rules engine
  • Workflow engine
  • Simulation and testing

While on-premise business process management (BPM) has been the norm for most enterprises, advances in cloud computing have led to increased interest in on-demand, software as a service (SaaS) offerings.

Why to Outsource Your Organization’s Finance Department…

The most common reasons of companies opting for accounts outsourcing are reduction of operating costs, enhancing flexibility and improving company focus for addressing business requirements. Outsourcing allows companies to attend to core business to better their profitability and improve time management. Irrespective of the company size or strength, outsourcing enables companies’ top management to abandon the non-core, time-consuming tasks and focus their synergies on critical strategic decision making activities.

In a highly competitive global environment, finance and accounts is among the most important and critical departments of an organization. It ensures effective and essential compliance, checks balance expense vs. growth, reduces the cash cycle and maximizes the return on investment (ROI). Hence companies channelize their finance and accounts to achieve better growth rates and improved profitability. Finance and accounts outsourcing is a novel delivery model and is slowly becoming a preferred financial strategy.
