Tinkerlist - Platform Redesign

Impressed by the advantages of AWS Cloud, Tinkerlist had already made a strategic decision to shift their workload to the cloud. However, lacking prior experience with AWS, they needed a partner who could assist in transforming their outdated platform into a cutting-edge, cloud-native one. As fate would have it, Tinkerlist and Cloudar crossed paths at the prestigious Belgian broadcast provider VRT, where they were both involved in ongoing projects. What started as a brief encounter blossomed into a visionary partnership and a new era of cooperation between the two. With Tinkerlist’s passion for innovation and Cloudar’s expertise in AWS, they created a state-of-the-art cloud platform that revolutionized their industry.

Customer Profile

TinkerList is an all-in-one content management system that revolutionizes the television production workflow. From the earliest stages of ideation to the final moment of broadcasting and beyond, TinkerList empowers editors to work collaboratively and seamlessly. With TinkerList, the embryonic start of an idea can flourish into a polished masterpiece, thanks to its streamlined features and intuitive interface.

Customer Challenge

TinkerList’s previous IAAS platform presented a slew of challenges: it was unwieldy to maintain, challenging to scale, and expensive, especially when scaled for peak load. Deployments were cumbersome, which often slowed down development speed. Seeking to increase efficiency and reduce operational burden, TinkerList made a strategic decision to migrate their workload to AWS. However, lacking prior experience with AWS, they required a partner to help them construct a revamped, cloud-native platform from the ground up. Enter Cloudar, an AWS expert with a proven track record of success. With Cloudar’s guidance and expertise, TinkerList was able to achieve its vision of a cutting-edge, streamlined cloud platform that optimized workflows, reduced costs, and propelled the company into the future.

“Although we have some DevOps skills on our team, we primarily focus on our core business as a product company. Cloudar has built a state-of-the-art environment that meets the demands of our industry, which requires 24/7 high availability. As a result, we can now focus on scaling our product without worrying about usage peaks or downtime. We are grateful to Cloudar for enabling us to reclaim our nights of peaceful sleep”

Our Solution

TinkerList recognized Cloudar as a natural fit for a partner, opting for our cutting-edge managed services to take their business to the next level. We designed a state-of-the-art cloud-native platform that was built to scale, highly available, and optimized for cost. TinkerList chose to leverage PaaS services, serverless architecture, and container technology to maximize efficiency in the new platform. And, to further enhance the speed and agility of the deployment process, we wrote the entire solution in IaC CloudFormation. With Cloudar’s expertise and guidance, TinkerList was able to achieve its vision of a streamlined and innovative platform that was built to propel the company into the future.

Result & Benefits

TinkerList’s new platform vision brought a host of benefits. Firstly, it freed them from the operational burden of a traditional IAAS environment, allowing them to focus solely on their core mission: the development of their product. With this newfound focus, they were able to pursue their vision with greater intensity and speed, with no distractions or impediments.

Secondly, the new platform gave TinkerList the power to revolutionize their development and release process in a dramatic new way. This cutting-edge process enabled them to release more frequently and confidently, allowing them to iterate quickly and stay ahead of the competition. Additionally, from a cost perspective, they realized gains, as the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the platform was now directly tied to their customer base and workload.

Thanks to the capabilities of Cloudar, TinkerList chose to adopt the next-generation Cloudar Managed Services, allowing them to concentrate fully on their core business, development, and feature deployments. This partnership showcases how synergy can be achieved by bringing value to all parties involve
