Cloud Foundations

Rapidly bootstrap your organisation for cloud modernisation

Deliver customer value sooner.

Our Enterprise Native Cloud ‘factory’ enables your engineers to quickly and appropriately deploy workloads to the cloud at scale.

Versent Cloud Foundations is a productised set of frameworks that set you up for successful cloud adoption by deploying a foundational set of automation capabilities, common and reusable tooling, and centralised shared services, within the guardrails of tested and proven enterprise-grade architectural patterns and best practices.

Our Foundations offering significantly expedites the initial phase of Cloud Adoption (design, planning and foundations establishment) prior to the build and migrate phases of the project.

This solution implements critical cloud security, compliance, and foundational controls to support the migration to, and transformation of workloads in, AWS and Azure.

Key benefits of our Cloud Foundations

  • Delivering a foundational capability for all necessary segments of an enterprise cloud solution
  • Adheres to compliance, regulatory and audit requirements
  • Standardised process and capability to prevent cottage industries / pockets of excellence from being isolated
  • Caters for all types of workloads
  • Empowers you to go from standstill to delivery rapidly, whilst still comprehensively addressing the people, process and technology requirements of the project
  • Provides a clear set of “rules” for all users to “play the game.”  These can be modified to suit your enterprise.

Out-of-the-box, yet bespoke.

Versent Cloud Foundations typically span 4 – 12 weeks, from Sprint 0 to advanced build factoring and networking, depending on site complexity.

We fast-track the initial stages by making a ‘quasi non-negotiable’ group of sequenced activities as standardised and repeatable as possible. The core is lightweight, automated and immutable – and we strive to make this the same for every customer engagement. The core includes the establishment of account services, user management, security services, financial and risk management, account monitoring and networking.

Then the integration component leverages the core and extends it into the customer’s specific ecosystem. This ensures that the things that are necessary through the customers lens, and required for the customer’s workloads, are true and correct within the cloud context. Shared services span infrastructure, host management and pipelines, as well as forward-looking view at initial migrated, re-platformed or transformed workloads to be produced by the Foundations ‘Factory.’


Service availability through process automation

Continuous optimisation

Versent embeds a Cloud Centre of Excellence in our customer organisations with a cross-functional remit of consulting, engineering DevOps and full stack support to ensure continuous improvement. We automate whenever possible (across change, autoscaling, monitoring, alerting, chaos engineering).

  • Rest


    Versent built a complete solution for us. Our previous telephony solution was a per-user pricing model – it was simply too expensive. With Amazon Connect’s pay-per-minute pricing, we could bring on these teams, enabling a better customer and business experience, as well as benefit from a more cost-efficient billing model.

    Real estate

    We have realised significant cost savings in the switch to cloud-based computing, storage and operations. Our core applications are now far more resilient and we are in much better position to respond to dynamic business requirements. Reducing TCO and improving resilience and agility were the key drivers behind the cloud transformation project, and we’ve achieved all of those objectives.
