Planning service
How the planning service works
IMD supports organisations through the assessment, development and implementation of risk management within cloud services by conducting a review of their current processes, or supporting the development of new risk management services, to support their ongoing business requirement.
We will provide support and guidance in undertaking the agreed actions (within the reports produced) from the risk review. Working together with the organisation, the implementation will be undertaken in a robust and timely manner to minimise any business impact. During this time communication with the organisation’s stakeholders will be continuous, whilst ensuring all risks and issues are captured and sufficient mitigations are planned for and managed.
Planning service works with specific services


Training service provided
How the training service works
As part of the Risk Management service, IMD can provide tailored risk management training for individuals and teams to obtain PRINCE2, APMP, MSP, MoR (and other) certifications, ensuring that the best practice methods applied during the delivery of our service are adopted by staff with key skills and knowledge being retained following the completion of the contract

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
IMD’s Risk Management service can be used to ensure that service continuity is maintained throughout any cloud setup and migration project by implementing robust risk management processes and procedures that will mitigate the proximity of system failure, and or downtime. By controlling through our Risk Management service, it is possible to closely monitor any activity that could lead to unexpected disruption within the project. Through the use of Schedule Risk Analysis (SRA) and Cost Risk Analysis (CRA) we will ensure any potential delay of additional costs have been identified early and can be planned for.
Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
IMD’s Risk Management service provides customers with quality assurance on the project’s performance associated with cloud services throughout the service lifespan. We assess the intended scope of the service and interrogate the current project risks and controls mechanisms to validate the impact on the delivery of the service at any point. Within the risk management service, we are also able to devise risk thresholds to support the identification of performance indicators to assess how the service is performing against the intended, or desire standard.

Support levels
For each engagement through GCloud 11, you will be provided with an IMD Account Manager who will be your central point of contact throughout the delivery of services. Where possible, we aim to provide you with an Account Manager who has experience operating within the relevant field associated with the engagement to coordinate the delivery of similar services. 
In addition to the Account Manager, we endeavour to provide you with an additional layer of Account Support in the form of a secondary point of contact for each engagement. In this way, we mitigate the likelihood of having a single point of failure, and have mechanisms in place to maintain continuity of service. 
Support will be provided remotely via email and phone for the most part, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices when needed. On site support can be offered during the working week where requests are made prior to proposals being submitted / individual call-off contracts agreed. 
Your Account Management and Support resources are typically integrated into the delivery team and so costs are included within the proposal for each engagement.
