ASE Consulting Ltd
|How the planning service works||
We will always work closely and collaboratively with our client to understand their objectives, needs and capabilities and then agree how we can most effectively assist them in planning how they will implement cloud hosting or software services. We offer a tailorable, full-lifecycle project and programme definition and delivery capability.
Typically we will work with our client to agree the scope and to develop a prioritised and resourced plan to enable our client to exploit identified opportunities and overcome or mitigate challenges.
We will undertake analysis of our client's "as-is" position (for example green-field, on premise provision, existing cloud service and combinations of these). We also consider the intended "to-be" position to ensure that the full benefits can be obtained from the use of cloud hosting or software.
We will help the client to clearly define governance, control and reporting arrangements. If required we can help the client to create any necessary business case and obtain funding.
We are practiced in the application of planning disciplines to cloud and agile projects - always recognising the need to balance value and control with the flexibility that is a foundation of these approaches.
|Planning service works with specific services||No|
|Training service provided||Yes|
|How the training service works||
As a broad-based consultancy and services organisation we can provide any training required by the client to utilise IT including cloud software and hosting services.
At the core of all of our service delivery is close working with the client’s team. We pride ourselves on “going the extra mile” to ensure that we take every opportunity to ensure that our transfer is shared with the client staff so that our contribution is embedded and continues to add value long after the end of the assignment.
Every client will have different needs so the first step will usually be a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) exercise. We would consider the outputs of the TNA jointly with the client to determine the best way for the client to meet the identified requirements for training, including the most effective and value for money approaches for the client for delivering the training.
We can undertake or support training in a number of areas such as: Specialist training for architects, developers, and testers; training for support staff working to maintain the service in production including operating the service desk and incident and problem management and end user training.
|Training is tied to specific services||No|
Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||
We are able to assist with planning, commercial, architectural, development, assurance, transition and operational challenges associated with moving to the cloud or between cloud services. We consider that preparation, process and repeatability are at the core of successful cloud deployment, typically achieved through the adoption of a DevOps based approach.
We can guide an organisation through the migration process, using our knowledge and experience to maximise the benefits and mitigate the risks of a cloud-based approach. We have particular experience of helping organisations to develop transition plans to be able to move functionality currently provided by monolithic, proprietary, on-premise legacy systems to flexible, scalable, commodity solutions, including the use of cloud-based and open technologies.
We recognise that for a range of reasons many organisations face a significant challenge in "unpicking" a complex web of legacy systems, interfaces and data stores into a future-proofed set of services that can exploit the many benefits of cloud provision.
|Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services||No|

|How the support service works||We can provide any ongoing support package that a client may require. We are able to flex levels of support to meet changes in demand, for example we can provide enhanced support during transition or roll-out phases.|
|Service constraints||Our service model is flexible and has no absolute constraints. We are able to offer bespoke packages to clients that include only the features that they need to support their business or organisation.|
|Email or online ticketing support||Email or online ticketing|
|Support response times||For services under the "Cloud Support" category our minimum response time is "within one working day of receipt". However if a client flags a ticket as urgent we will use reasonable endeavours to respond more quickly. For Cloud Support services it will often be the case that we already have resources dedicated to the client and therefore where necessary during working hours we can respond immediately to any client issues that are notified to us.|

We are able to offer bespoke packages to clients that include only the features that they need to support their business or organisation. Each client that we support is assigned a Support Account Manager to act as a single point of contact and to participate in regular reviews with the client. Any specific resources and costs for support would be identified during the process of clarifying requirements and agreeing charges with the client prior to any order being placed.|
