IMS Evolve is an Internet of Things (IoT) company reducing waste, maintenance costs and energy consumption for its customers with an innovative machine learning platform. The IMS Evolve platform delivers digital transformation without the need for costly capital investment by enhancing, not replacing, existing infrastructure.

The Digital Sandwich consortium stresses that recent health and safety issues in the UK have started to undermine confidence in the production of ready-made foods, in addition to ongoing concerns about the conditions under which food is produced. The platform boosts confidence in the ready-made food supply chain.

Technology Challenge

The Cloud Development team values the truly portable serverless solution of the Nimbella offering with its multi-cloud serverless, complete flexibility on their solution on their own control.

IMS Evolve realized these top key benefits:

  • Simplified Developer Experience, the platform onboarding was done within an hour.
  • Completely customizable runtime environment.
  • No vendor lock-in. Ability to choose any deployment model: Multi-cloud, Hybrid cloud, Private cloud.
  • One platform for stateless and stateful APIs with native integration of state for automatic data management.

Finding the Right Solution

We partnered with Nimbella because of the flexibility of their solution. IMS Evolve is building a traceability platform that will act as a digital twin for the UK food industry and a serverless architecture is ideal for such an application. This will be further extended to other industries like pharmaceuticals, automotive and aerospace. Nimbella’s multi-cloud serverless platform future-protects us to deploy anywhere and have complete control over our deployment enabling ultimate scalability as the ecosystem is adopted globally.

IMS Evolve considered various Serverless solutions but quickly realized that most of FaaS (Function-As-A-Service) Platforms often involves getting locked-in to proprietary technology stacks that add unneeded costs and services over time. It makes it hard to customize and also very difficult to migrate away from that particular cloud. Alternative Kubernetes solutions that IMS Evolve tested were hard to install and bring up and the support model to guide IMS Evolve through troubleshooting issues was nonresponsive. They then engaged Nimbella Serverless that makes serverless development on Kubernetes frictionless and portable.
