Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
IMD offers services to support customers setting up and migrating to or between cloud hosting or software systems and services. We provide consolidated, through-life cost, operational, technical and training support, highlighting benefits and risks, to optimise the system or service and its design, delivery and support.
We develop detailed, resourced and costed plans to support set up and migration activities, including governance, risks, assumptions, issues, dependencies and opportunity (RAIDO) management, benefits realisation planning and stakeholder engagement.
We enable organisations to determine their level of readiness, assessing feasibility and process maturity when implementing new systems and services or when developing an existing service. We develop Integrated Test, Evaluation and Acceptance strategy and plans to enable comprehensive compliance checks, testing and evaluation before formal acceptance. Equally importantly, we assess the readiness of your people to use and benefit from the new technology.
Training Needs Analysis gives a clear understanding of training required when using the new system or service, and plans any capability shortfall by mapping development, coaching and mentoring needs. This can include targeted training for specific tools, cyber awareness, delivering within virtual teams or the broader ‘soft skills’ required for effective development of high functioning teams and organisations.

Training

Training service provided
Yes
How the training service works
IMD supports the implementation of cloud systems and services by conducting an in-depth Training Needs Analysis study before implementation to provide a clear understanding of the training that will be required to use the new capability. Any skills shortfall can be addressed by planning training workshops, mapping development or coaching / mentoring needs in advance of the cloud system being deployed.​
TNAs may identify a need for targeted training in the use of specific tools, or a broader organisational need for awareness of factors pertaining to cloud based software, such as cyber awareness or delivering within virtual teams. Broader ‘soft skills’ gaps may be identified to improve effectiveness of programme/project delivery or to develop high-functioning teams and organisations. ​
IMD can provide tailored training and certifications in PRINCE2, APMP, MSP, AGILE, ITIL, Management of Risk, cyber and information security and IT governance.
As part of all IMD services, we ensure that the best practice methods we apply during delivery are adopted by customer staff, so key skills and knowledge are retained following completion of the contract.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
Yes
How the setup or migration service works
IMD offers services to support customers setting up and migrating to or between cloud hosting or software systems and services. We provide consolidated, through-life cost, operational, technical and training support, highlighting benefits and risks, to optimise the system or service and its design, delivery and support.
We develop detailed, resourced and costed plans to support set up and migration activities, including governance, risks, assumptions, issues, dependencies and opportunity (RAIDO) management, benefits realisation planning and stakeholder engagement.
We enable organisations to determine their level of readiness, assessing feasibility and process maturity when implementing new systems and services or when developing an existing service. We develop Integrated Test, Evaluation and Acceptance strategy and plans to enable comprehensive compliance checks, testing and evaluation before formal acceptance. Equally importantly, we assess the readiness of your people to use and benefit from the new technology.
Change associated with migration to, or between, cloud services will typically require new ways of working, governance models, or virtual team structures. IMD helps customers prepare and equip themselves to achieve operational capability in the new environment through specific training, coaching or embedding of new processes.

Support levels
IMD provides consultancy support across all SFIA grades, with prices detailed on the supplied Rate Cards.
For each engagement, we provide a Technical Account Manager who will be the central customer point of contact. The Account Manager will have experience operating within the relevant field and of coordinating the delivery of similar services. This provides additional domain knowledge and support to the delivery team, a first point for escalation of issues, and added intelligence and continuity across projects and programmes. The Technical Account Manager will ensure administrative or contractual queries are actioned and resolved, including the need for any additional specialist support.
In addition, we endeavour to provide a secondary point of contact for each engagement to ensure continuity of service and support.
Depending on the particular assignment, support will be provided on-site, or remotely via email and phone, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices. On-site support will normally be between 8 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays. Support outside these hours can be arranged by negotiation. Technical Account Management and support will normally be integrated into the delivery team. Costs are included in the proposed price for each engagement.
