About the Company

Immersion is a California-based company that specializes in developing and licensing haptic technology. This touch feedback technology allows human touch to communicate with virtual objects. Immersion’s technology makes human-machine interfaces feel more natural and familiar, bringing life to video games, mobile devices, and medical training equipment.


Henry Da Costa, Immersion’s Director of Engineering, faced challenges to improve efficiencies and reduce costs. Immersion had multiple products running on AWS that needed to be maintained but Immersion didn’t have an AWS professional available to take on that responsibility. Cost reduction was Immersion’s top priority, so they sought to hire an AWS expert to address this issue on a project basis.

NerdRabbit Solution

Immersion’s AWS representative then introduced them to NerdRabbit. Through the Nerdly platform, NerdRabbit connected Immersion with a certified and vetted ‘Nerd’ (AWS Developer) to help maintain their current products. Immersion needed this part-time Nerd to focus on helping them delete a DynamoDB table as smoothly as possible and without affecting their software. The Nerd successfully and efficiently completed this project while staying well within Immersion’s current budget.


By utilizing the Nerdly software, Immersion was able to cost-effectively delete sensitive information within their software. Nerdly helped Immersion not just stay within budget, but ultimately save money on the project. AWS estimates that Immersion will save 68% on their DynamoDB spend moving forward with the NerdRabbit Nerd. These savings easily covered the cost of the Nerd and helped Immersion continue to further their business.
