For John Holland, innovation has always been at the core of its construction and infrastructure business. From humble beginnings 70 years ago, the company is credited with some of the nation’s landmark projects, including Parliament House and the new Sydney Metro launched in 2019—Australia’s first driverless metro train network.
In 2017, the group made a strategic decision to exit its on-premises data centres to improve IT agility and reduce costs. It turned to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Versent, an AWS Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN), to perform the cloud migration, setting a stretch target of just seven months to move some 200 workloads.
When you engage Versent as your cloud transformation partner you can expect an authentic, respectful and transparent approach. As a valued APN partner, their mission is to help businesses lay the foundations to interact and succeed in the “digitised” world. This includes facing into technical, cultural and procedural change, to help enterprises “Think and Act” like start-ups. Find out more by visiting: versent.com.au.
