Deployment agility and flexibility


About BluechipONE

BluechipONE was founded in 2005 to help NCAA football teams find their ‘blue-chip’ players using technology and media. Today, BluechipONE has played a role in recruiting the players for the last 12 NCAA national championships. And, has expanded to bring ‘blue-chip’ recruiting to the military. The BluechipONE team is a group of proven technology entrepreneurs and veterans that have built and managed some of the most successful technology companies over the past 30 years.

BluechipONE is building to change the face of recruiting with one simple belief; every young person is a blue-chip. Using precise, prescriptive, and predictive technologies and processes, they plan to continue to deliver the best path to successful recruiting.

The Challenge

With the extensive reach of BluechipONE’s research and clients, their team needs quick and easy deployment methods. They need flexible and agile solutions that can be ready within minutes. In their industry, a quicker and more efficient time to market is everything. Each presentation may require new deployments, making these immediate options all the more necessary.

The Solution

AWS is known for its improved ‘time to market’ over other methods. The EPI-USE  Services for AWS team was able to use the advantages of Windows EC2 instances with AWS to leverage BluechipONE’s sudden deployments. The AWS Systems Manager was also configured to help minimize the need for human interaction at a server level when maintaining and patching the BluechipONE deployments.

Using Systems Manager also helped their team when taking advantage of Nimble AWS resource deployments, pushing for a more efficient deployment method of applications within a weekend for presentations the following Monday.

Very knowledgeable, trustworthy with exceptional and responsive service. They engender a sense that we are all on the same team.
