Veritec says it has security cleared resources, a strong Microsoft partnership, Microsoft-certified staff and technical skills underpinning its cloud Modernisation Factory offering for government and critical infrastructure –and will provide its own and Microsoft customers with a cost effective, repeatable and quality service to update and future-proof legacy IT workloads.
The Modernisation Factory will focus initially on modernising operating systems, databases and application workloads running on a Microsoft platform, as well as migrating supported workloads into the Microsoft Azure cloud, with additional services to come online in the near future.
Veritec and Microsoft say they want to support customers as they modernise and migrate to the cloud, allowing them to take advantage of the Protected Certification awarded to Azure by the Australian Signals Directorate, in particular, the new Azure Central Regions in Canberra.
“We also look forward to working with the Microsoft global delivery team using their proven methodologies to modernise our joint customers’ applications using Microsoft tools, processes and IP.”
George Stavrakakis, Microsoft Australia public service director, said; “Technology analyst, Gartner, has forecast that investment in public cloud services will surge by 18.5% in Australia this year. This reflects the growing appetite for the scalability, reliability, security and performance that a trusted cloud such as Microsoft Azure delivers.
“Our continued investment in Azure, and particularly the Azure Australia Central Regions, along with the Protected Certification awarded by the ASD, makes the Microsoft cloud the clear choice for Government and critical industries in Australia. We are delighted to work with Veritec to help our customers transform their workloads and accelerate their migration to the cloud with the Modernisation Factory.”
As part of the multi-year contract, Veritec will deploy a production line, featuring fixed price and highly repetitive processes for validation and design of Azure infrastructure.
And besides operating the Modernisation Factory for Microsoft, Veritec will provide the cloud modernisation services directly to the Australian market, with additional managed services options available for extended support.
