Client Profile

Sector: Pharmaceutical

Our customer is a national Pharmaceutical Regulatory Body responsible for regulating pharmacists and pharmacies. The customer adopted a cloud strategy when their datacentre contracts were expiring. Operating in a highly regulated sector meant that security and compliance were key requirements to ensure the customer’s success.


The customer operates in a highly regulated industry that deals with the education, enforcement, and inspection of pharmaceutical practices. To meet the growth of user base and regulation, the customer came to Version 1 with requirements to design and create a regulatory registration system that covered the complete lifecycle management of registrant and financial information.


Version 1 designed and deployed a bespoke CRM and internal collaborative platform leveraging the AWS cloud. AWS services such as EC2, DynamoDB, AWS VPC and others allow the customer to ensure availability for all registrants.

The AWS platform enabled Version 1 to address the core issues of data security, business continuity, and hardware end-of-life for the customer IT Operations.

The customer takes advantage of Version 1’s Next Gen Managed Services Provider program which provides 247-365 support that is underpinned by ISO 27001 and 20000 and advises in areas such as Software Asset Management and Cloud Optimisation.

Real Business Benefits, Delivered

Compliance Achieved 
The security and reliability of the AWS platform allows the customer to enable several thousand businesses to adhere to industry regulation through an improved system process.

Predictable OpEx model
Migrating to AWS meant the customer did not have to reinvest in costly datacentre contracts. Instead the customer pays as they consume AWS services, and only for what they use.

Scalability of Cloud
Using Amazon EC2 and auto-scaling, the customer can scale their systems to match demand. This ensures that the applications can always meet demand, while the customer only pays for what they need.
