THE CUSTOMER

Venminder is an industry-recognized leader of third-party risk management solutions. Dedicated to third-party risk, the company is the go-to partner for software, vendor risk assessments, certified subject-matter expertise, and education for more than 1,000 customers. 

THE CHALLENGE

Venminder’s data center solution was unable to provide the type of scale needed to meet their growing business. Venminder was constantly running into situations where additional CPU was required for traffic spikes. Provisioning additional CPU with the data center solution was a time-consuming task and overly complex process. By moving to AWS, the Venminder team could take advantage of the agility in scaling provided by AWS services, and meet their growth requirements as needed. 

WHY AWS?

Venminder was looking to achieve better control and agility in regard to scaling resources. They wanted to achieve better performance for end users who might experience lag during traffic spikes where Venminder was unable to scale. AWS was the best solution to fit those needs. 

WHY JETSWEEP?

When Venminder was searching for a partner to complete their migration, AWS recommended JetSweep as an Advanced AWS Partner. After learning more about our team’s experience and expertise through additional customer references, Venminder got on the phone with our team. VP and Senior Solution Architect Brian MacDonald’s experience and high-level work proposal aligned with what Venminder had envisioned, and chose JetSweep as a partner for their migration. 

THE SOLUTION

JetSweep worked closely with Venminder to develop the best migration plan for their application needs. Some of the environment was moved with a lift and shift migration strategy and some of the environment was migrated and modernized with AWS services.  

Once the environment was configured and available, Venminder worked with JetSweep to move data and install applications and services for the Venminder Platform. Testing and validation were performed by Venminder personnel with JetSweep available to support. 

THE BENEFITS

AWS’s technology stack allowed for quickly provisioning resources to the services that support the Venminder Platform, as needed, without having to wait for a vendor change process. Venminder immediately saw benefits in its ability to develop and release new features faster than ever before.  

NEXT STEPS

Our solution architects provided knowledge transfer to Venminder and are available for supporting and updating the infrastructure. JetSweep will be available to support any of Venminder’s future AWS endeavors and to continue streamlining and improving their environment. With our expertise at their side, Venminder will be able to stay up-to-date with AWS services and solutions.
