They also required additional resources to build out a data lake that could support new industrial contact tracing reports and visualizations.a??In this period of accelerated growth, it was becoming difficult to balance critical software innovation with the need to grow our team while simultaneously managing critical improvements to our platform,a?? said John Moura, director, Software Development and Operations, Blackline Safety. a??We knew that investing in our cloud infrastructure would support our next phase of growth, but it was critical to select the right partner with deep experience and a proven track record.
