Veritec, a supplier of regulatory and compliance solutions, is to establish a ‘Modernisation Factory’ in partnership with Microsoft Australia. This will help accelerate the pace at which government agencies and critical infrastructure providers in Australia can transition workloads to Microsoft Azure and digitally transform their operations.
The Modernisation Factory will provide Veritec and Microsoft customers with a cost effective, repeatable and quality service to update and future-proof legacy IT workloads. It 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.
Marty Holden, general manager of Veritec, said, “We are delighted to partner with Microsoft Consulting Services and to have been selected as the Azure migration partner for Government in handling these workload modernisation activities. 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.”
