Most of the young people had no prior exposure to AWS tools or architectures. It was so impressive seeing the way they learned.

Why cloud-based analytics make your business data more productive

Speed and agility are at the top of many company’s priority lists. Cloud infrastructure allows organisations to set up sophisticated analytics systems swiftly, compared to the lengthy process involved with legacy on-premises systems. Cloud systems also scale up and down smoothly and easily to accommodate fluctuations in user traffic.

In 2021, AWS made cloud transformation more accessible than ever 

AWS has selected Versent to be a Launch Partner in the new ISV marketplace. Find Versent right alongside AWS tools in the marketplace. Versent can be be engaged as your services partner, supporting you with outstanding third-party tools to ensure a better cloud adoption outcome.

Customer-focused digital strategy to transcend crisis thinking

Digital user experience is the marketplace battleground of the future. To be competitive, your business needs solutions that are flexible and scalable as well as robust. Short term money-savers can lead to disastrously expensive problems in the future as the limitations of your solution constrict your ability to adapt and grow.

Cloud Adoption: laying foundations for business agility

When a company has to scale up their operations quickly, it’s a simple, inexpensive process for cloud adopters; a process that can even be automated. Tasks that traditionally took weeks with on-premises systems take only minutes in a modern cloud environment.

Involve your team in digital transformation, leverage data and grow your business

If you invest in a new digital platform, but your team isn’t trained on using it correctly, its value is severely diminished.  For example, your CRM (Customer Relationship Management) platform is only as valuable as the data that’s in it. It’s vital to capture implicit data from all channels then link this to customer identities, so you can measure engagement and propensity to purchase. All of these elements, when working together in unison, can create a great performance model. 

Digital transformation: first steps toward sustainable growth

Technologies like cloud computing, AI (Artificial Intelligence) personalisation and automation are the foundation of the world’s most successful companies. But these technologies are now essential to survival for any business because, without them, it will be impossible to compete sustainably.

How do we manage cybersecurity in the COVID-19 remote work era?

Over the last twelve months, industry surveys consistently found that between 70% to 90% of companies have radically expanded their work-from-home programs. If your organisation is like the majority, some major challenges arose from the global shift toward team decentralisation. One prominent issue exposed by the remote work surge is the need to re-examine cybersecurity: specifically how security and IAM (Identity & Access Management) needs to evolve to encompass the change.
