About Our Company
WHAT WE DO
Cloud can undoubtedly simplify some aspects of IT, yet planning, selecting the best solution and making the transition can be remarkably complex. It is vital to evaluate where each workload should be located according to a variety of business drivers, not only from a technical but also from a legislative and cultural perspective.
Our focus is to ensure that your business objectives are met with the best possible technical solution, that solution may be all off-premise, on-premise or a hybrid solution that gives you the best of both worlds. Venn’s belief is that our only vested interest should be in getting the best results for our clients.
Because of the complex interdependency of most systems and applications, we conduct discovery services and workshops. These activities ensure that each workload is assessed carefully, with all potential outcomes taken into account, before a move to cloud.
Each of the major cloud businesses has its strengths and differences; all cloud offerings are certainly not the same. While rushing into cloud is not something we’d recommend, a considered cloud solution does not have to take forever. We know cloud, and our specialists are experienced at guiding the IT choices of some of Australia’s most successful businesses.
The Right Cloud
Not all cloud providers are the same, so we use a defined methodology to make recommendations that take into account the factors relevant to your business. Among the business drivers and criteria to be considered in any workload relocation are:
- Agility and scale
- Governance, Risk and Compliance
Venn IT is
a cloud specialist with a
difference. We are proudly
independent. This means that
we consider the benefits and
detailed offerings of each cloud
provider, so we can help you to
make sensible choices, for
a cloud deployment mix that is
designed to suit your
WHO WE ARE
Venn IT was formed by a team of skilled IT professionals dedicated to bringing together business understanding, market opportunities and technical innovation. We care about making cloud solutions that help our customers to increase their agility and manage their costs.
The secret to finding the right solution begins with asking the right questions, then listening carefully. It is important that we get to know your ambitions and your concerns. By taking time to look beyond technical needs, at an organisation’s people, culture, values and business objectives we are able to understand what will give you the most natural cloud fit.
When you work with Venn IT, you can expect straight-talking, careful consideration and ready access to our experts. You can trust us to make choices independently of any cloud provider allegiances, and to always work in your best interests.
