For over 18 years, C&K Auto Parts has provided high-quality auto parts for extended warranty companies, automobile dealer groups, and repair shops throughout the US and Canada. For the last 5 years, C&K has found Fuel Digital to be the partner that best meets their digital and technology needs.
Although very successful, C&K faced multiple technology challenges. They were attempting to move to a modern cloud architecture but lacked the expertise and practical experience to best utilize cloud services, control cloud spending, and implement a successful DevOps strategy. As a result, there was significant overspending on resources, while overall performance and reliability suffered. Their software deployments required long outage windows, incurred repeated failures, and struggled to rollback. Additional DevOps challenges included inconsistent branching strategy, discrepancies between source and production code, and no existing DevOps automation. C&K has smart business and technology associates; however, this cloud transformation was new, and they needed an experienced, proven cloud consultancy to help them successfully navigate their journey.
