downtime will no longer stand in the way of a dream


When the future of the United Kingdom begins at your portal, downtime is not an option.

That's why the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) turned to Infosys – to ensure that students could count on their portal when it mattered. We responded by automating the most critical processes in their infrastructure management, building the reliability to handle frenzied traffic peaks – from result day to application deadline.

In addition to modernizing the UCAS infrastructure, we put in a capacity management strategy to manage peak hour traffic. The underlying processes were fully automated with the Infosys Automation Platform (IAP) – an artificial intelligence system that can predict and fix impending crashes and stresses on infrastructure load.
