Cloud hosting

Cost effective
Minimal disruption
Easily move your data warehouse and business intelligence tools to the cloud, and turbo charge your analytics capability. 

The Question

Have you ever wondered…

how you can move your data pipelines and existing Business Intelligence reports to the cloud and unlock more capability and value from your data? 

We estimate organisations will spend more than $450,000 in designing purpose-built cloud infrastructure for data management and analytics. And it will take more than 6 months.

Cloud analytics is more than just a SQL Server data warehouse and a dashboard tool, its security, running advanced analytic models, data science experiments, and trialling new technology to unlock value in new use cases.

Aside from the considerable effort in designing a cloud analytics environment, it takes a long time to get the right mix of technology working together well, performing well, and ensuring its reliable, secure, and well-managed.

The Challenge

Customers considering moving their analytics to the cloud have 2 options.

Option 1

Hire a team of cloud experts to design a custom environment for, taking more than 6 months and costing, on average, more than $450,000.

Option 2

Deploy a best in class Analytics as a Service platform designed specifically for managing data and running analytics capability. All backed by a team of dedicated analytics experts who will help you extend your existing capabilities as your long-term analytics partners.

“To begin with we don’t have an inhouse data team and CMYKhub has so much untapped and valuable data, that we know, once utilized, can benefit the business and our customers. Our understanding and use of manufacturing technologies have driven our business to be a leader in Australia. So, looking at leaders overseas and what defines them as best -in-class print manufacturers, we found, being a highly data driven business is one of the most important.”

Many customers tell us they have considered moving to the cloud, but couldn’t make the business case work. They couldn’t identify the full benefits, and then justify the costs. They know there is benefit, but need help articulating it. 

For us the most important reasons are to expand foundational capability to create the data driven enterprise. Secondly, is data security with a team of experts and proven technology. Third, we can make the business case work with a huge ROI. 

What if you could migrate and enhance your existing data warehouse and analytics capability without: 

  • PHiring a team of consultants to assist you
  • PMaking countless technology decisions
  • PWorking through myriad interoperability and performance issues
  • PRisking the security of your data
  • PSpending a lot of internal effort and dollars

“To accelerate our data projects, we wanted a partner that could quickly demonstrate the value of bringing our data together, and a partner that brings technology solutions to the table, rather than building everything from scratch. And perhaps more importantly, we did not have to become Data Scientists ourselves to reach our goals, Laneway took the time to understand our business and unique challenges, working alongside us over the long-term. We couldn’t be happier with the team from Laneway Analytics as our guides and support partners.”

What can Vera do for you?

We share 4 recent customer successes powered by Vera.

Data Security and APRA CPS 234

Data is at the core of our customer’s mission to better understanding their customers and designing their products and service experiences to meet the needs of their different customer segments. But how can you do more with data while protecting customer data and managing significant data privacy and regulatory requirements? Vera provides a fully managed environment that is ISO 27001 certified and APRA compliant. This solves a major challenge for our customers, and enables them to focus on becoming insightful, rather than spending effort on compliance.

Reduce Cost and Risk

Presented with the option of hiring pure infrastructure consultants to design a cloud solution for data management and analytics, Vera skips over this step and provides an optimised cloud environment for data and analytics at the flick of a button. This saves customers up to $450k in savings, and 6 months of design, technology selection headaches, interoperability and performance testing.

Analytics Partner

And we back Vera with a dedicated support team, and a team of analytics experts that know how to enhance your legacy capability and work with you to become a truly data-driven organisation.
