New Relic, an observability platform, was in need of a partner that could scale with them and ensure high-level data availability, scalability, and performance. The company's core data platform ingests data from around the world and makes it available in near real-time. The availability of this data is crucial for New Relic's customers, as they rely on it for important functions such as alerting and monitoring. If the data doesn't reach New Relic's systems, these functions won't trigger or appear, causing significant issues for their customers. New Relic was also looking to improve performance and was in search of a partner that could provide a service that was performant, scalable, and reliable.
About The Customer
New Relic is an observability platform that provides customers with the ability to understand where their systems are at all times, and to make educated decisions based on data, not opinion. The company's core data platform ingests data from around the world and makes it available in near real-time. New Relic's customers are located around the world and rely on the availability of their data for important functions such as alerting and monitoring. The company prides itself on its growth, technical challenges, partnerships, and the engineering organization it leads.
New Relic chose to partner with Fastly due to their high-level availability and performance. Fastly's points of presence (PoPs) are located in key areas where New Relic ingests requests from their customers, making them an ideal partner. Fastly was able to match the performance and reliability that New Relic needed, as evidenced by intense testing during the vetting process. Fastly also provided a solution to some technical challenges New Relic was facing, with a feature called 'bring your own IP' (BYOIP). Looking forward, New Relic plans to utilize Fastly's Compute@Edge for routing through-data to specific data centers and clouds around the world, with more projects in the works that Compute@Edge will enable.

Digital Transformation of Atlanta Grout & Tile: An IoT Case Study
Atlanta Grout & Tile, a Tile, Stone & Grout restoration company based in Woodstock, Georgia, was facing challenges with its traditional business model. Despite steady growth over the years, the company was falling behind the web revolution and missing out on the opportunity to tap into a new consumer base. They were using independent software from different vendors for each of their department information and workforce management. This resulted in a lot of manual work on excel and the need to export/import data between different systems. This not only increased overhead costs but also slowed down their response to clients. The company also had to prepare numerous reports manually and lacked access to customer trends for effective business decision-making.
Revolutionizing Construction Equipment Rental: A Case Study on ProsRent and ENO8
ProsRent, a startup that won the 'Best Financial Opportunity' and 'Best Pitch' at CodeLaunch 2016, aimed to revolutionize the way construction professionals source and rent heavy equipment. In the construction industry, project managers and contractors typically rent heavy equipment from supply companies. However, predicting inventory can be challenging, and finding the required equipment at the right time and place can be a hassle. If the preferred vendor doesn't have the required equipment, it results in wasted time and money in searching for it, often leading to higher costs due to non-preferred rates and increased delivery costs if the vendor is located far from the job site. Suppliers, on the other hand, desired access to a wider base of trusted renters that they didn't have to vet themselves and wanted to offer dynamic rental pricing based on demand and availability in their market. ProsRent's challenge was to produce a minimum viable product that was fast and first to market but also strong enough to engender loyalty and repeat business from the target market.
IoT Solution Enhances Comfort and Energy Efficiency at Apple Valley Commons Office
Apple Valley Commons, a mixed-use office complex built in 1986, was facing significant comfort and energy efficiency challenges. The building, which houses a variety of businesses, was experiencing extreme temperature imbalances, causing discomfort to employees and clients. Despite outdoor temperatures being consistently high during summers, occupants had to use space heaters to keep warm. The electricity bills from the constant operation of the heat pump were exorbitant. The building's elevator room on the roof was also overheating, reaching temperatures of 130 to 140 degrees, causing the elevator equipment to shut down. The building's existing controls solution did not provide a front end for diagnostics or remote control. The building management was seeking a solution that could address these temperature issues, improve occupant comfort, reduce operational costs, and increase building visibility.
Revamping EE's Legacy ERP: A Case Study on BT's Strategic Transformation
EE, even after its merger with BT, was operating its ERP estate on legacy infrastructure, hosted on the premises of a third-party supplier.
