Planning

Planning
Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Agile Solutions works closely together with our clients to help plan their approach to cloud projects. As part of our service, Agile Solutions helps to develop planning strategies for implementation, covering business analysis, requirements gathering, solution design and security architecture. Using our extensive experience within the industry, we are able to identify issues before they arise and streamline and automate processes to ensure a smooth and fast delivery. Our history with planning, implementing and managing cloud services ensures projects are delivered on time and within the estimated budget, providing our clients with an assured delivery partner and trusted delivery plan. We endeavour to use an Agile methodology approach with all of our engagements but will always tailor this to suit the needs of individual clients. A hybrid approach is often taken within planning engagements as this allows for faster time to value and accurate project estimation, whilst providing minimal disruption to internal teams.

Setup and migration

How the setup or migration service works Agile Solutions Cloud Data Migration services provide clients with the ability to migrate data to, from and within the cloud. Whether migrating from esoteric legacy systems or the latest Cloud offering, our solutions ensure the right data is delivered to where it is needed. We always take into account the entire data journey - including data security, data quality and data governance to help ensure robust processes are in place to deliver highly secure and trusted data. Agile Solutions promote the following best practices for data migration: • Start migration activities early in the project • Identify and assign data stewards for each object • Profile and identify issues with source data early in the project • Migrate only what is needed; filter the data • Cleanse and standardise the data before migration • Resolve duplicates before migration • Convert early, convert often and convert with real-data • Table driven cross-reference and default values • Modular development to promote re-use • Archive what is not needed
Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services No
