Tangent Solutions assisted Vumatel in migrating their workloads into the cloud and chose to use Microsoft’s Azure Kubernetes offering, AKS, as the container orchestration framework. At the same time Tangent Solutions helped build up their microservices architecture using Python. This API layer was needed to comply with the TM Forum standards. The TM Forum Framework is a suite of best practices and standards that provides the blueprint for effective, efficient business operations for the telecoms industry.
Vumatel highly values agility and as such utilized Azure DevOps to manage their pipelines and CI/CD. Tangent Solutions also created a field services mobile application using Xamarin Forms. This mobile app benefits both the company and its installers throughout the whole country. It enables installers to see their day to day schedule from Vumatel, payments from customers and indicates to the relevant installer that the fibre to the home which he has just installed is connected and operating. Being able to get access to this information onsite reduces the amount of times installers need to visit the site of an installation significantly reducing friction with the end customer.
