Cloud Modernisation

Realise the power of cloud with fully refactored services

Break free from legacy infrastructure and apps.

Turnkey cloud-native development and deployment for optimised agility, performance and cost benefits.

Refactoring is true to agile development.

‘Lift and shift’ is no longer adequate. Cloud maturity and modernisation require your legacy applications and services to be refactored, and hence optimised, for their new architecture.

Modernising your applications yield: lower TCO; performance, availability and stability improvements; greater flexibility to scale; and lower operational efforts.

Modernisation scenarios

Versent can help with the following application modernisations:

  • Databases to RDS, e.g. PostgreSQL, SQL Server Always On
  • Storage to cloud native, e.g. S3, FSx for Windows
  • Applications to Containers, e.g. ECS, EKS, Kurbernetes
  • Development Environments to Cloud, e.g. blue/green dev test, scaled re-platforming)
  • COTS IAC Automation, e.g. AEM Automation, SAP Automation, Fenergo

Project phases

Our end-to-end modernisation solutions include:

  • Mobilising delivery teams
  • Developing application solution designs
  • Re-hosting applications
  • Re-platforming and re-factoring applications
  • System & Unit Testing
  • User & Operational Acceptance Testing
  • AWS Well Architected Review
  • Go-Live
  • User Acceptance Testing
  • Service Transition to Operations

  • 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.
