Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
Content and Code’s approach to developing robust Microsoft 365 and SharePoint solutions for our clients is based on the staged, incremental delivery approach. We typically divide our projects into three discrete stages: Scoping & Planning, Build and Transition. Cloud Application Development can also be delivered with reduced planning effort, leveraging agile principles and iterative delivery methods.

Setup and migration

How the setup or migration service works
This approach involves:

Plan – Discovery and health checks, design and transition workshops, low level design and solution write-up

Prepare – Implementation of pre-requisites, identity and supporting software to support the transition or migration of data, with full testing included and migration planning, communications, and training.

Migration – Beginning with pilot migrations, we move into velocity migrations and move users to the service based on the migration plan, which aims to remove disruption or downtime for end users, including reducing or removing any impact due to sharing restrictions.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
As we provide cloud solutions to our clients, quality assurance is critical in achieving our goal of delivering “right first time”. Testing against all client's requirements and driving the delivery of high quality code helps us to reduce User Acceptance Testing (UAT) effort and rework. Through the scoping and planning phases, we ascertain the level and depth of quality assurance necessary and tailor our QA efforts accordingly. During the project build phase, we focus solely on functional system testing of the solutions developed.

We utilise a Risk Based Testing, prioritising tests on functionality with highest potential impacts and propensity to failure. We continuously review test plans ensuring we identify and rectify all critical defects. On system test completion, we provide a QA Test Report summarising the test activities and any resulting recommendations. Where required, we also support client UAT needs by providing consultants able to perform UAT management and test analysis in order to guide client teams in the most effective ways to UAT the solution.
