|How the planning service works||
Incorvus conducts in-depth analysis of the data intended for the Cloud or new systems. Reporting identifies errors, gaps, and quality issues such as duplicates, poor parsing, missing or poor quality metadata. We can also help you understand what data (or gaps) exist in packaged applications.
Incorvus will identify and advise on issues arising from legacy data or data consolidations, such as poor metadata or data redundancy (where the data is too 'stale', 'ancient' or so poorly described or referenced that it has insufficient value to be worth migrating to Cloud. Incorvus will also help to identify data files (e.g. unstructured) which should not be ported to Cloud, but which may nonetheless be relevant to business processes.
Incorvus will work with the client to establish a vision of what the client seeks to achieve with the new Cloud system(s), and whether a fresh look at existing processes may yield further benefits. These stories will inform new data models, and metadata taxonomies, essential for controlling data quality input and delivering integrated processes into the new Cloud systems down the line.
Incorvus will also provide advisory on information governance if this is required. Our approach is relentlessly pragmatic and focused on implementation.
|Planning service works with specific services||No|
|Training service provided||Yes|
|How the training service works||
Incorvus provides training which is contextual, either tailored to personal requirements or generalizable for small teams according to client needs. The training can be onsite, and can be particular to the work being delivered or the technology environment.
Our courses might therefore include for example: data preparation, quality and curation; metadata discovery, preparation and management; how to operate the new or target Cloud effectively; end-user operational and administrative capability; end-user security and governance awareness and best practice to underpin risk management and acceptable use policies.
|Training is tied to specific services||No|
Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||
Each Cloud has its own constraints. Incorvus helps clients to work within those and to extract or prepare data uploads suited to the target environment. Alignment to business processes informs configuration of the target environment and helps to maintain referential integrity as far as possible.
Incorvus will assess the client’s intended path and advise any early difficulties, e.g. between legacy and Cloud. We offer post go-live issue resolution, training and wider information architecture or governance advisory.
Using Agile, Incorvus' programme includes preparation, set up, upload, integration and reporting (or exit). The programme will flex as stories adjust and the clients' needs achieve greater definition.
Clients maximise benefits from new systems by not recreating the past, but by aligning their intent to the new environment before committal. After preparation, only relevant, clean data correctly migrated, should populate new systems.
Incorvus' focus is on the data, metadata and its preparation. From use cases we derive business process mapping, data flows and data models (AS IS and TO BE). Putting the data first retains focus on what is critical and feasible so that clients don't plan really well for something that can't be delivered or won't be performant upon delivery.
|Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services||No|
Quality assurance and performance testing
|Quality assurance and performance testing service||No|

|Types of service supported||
|How the support service works||Incorvus can provide a variety of support mechanisms within our business depending on client requirements and hosted environments. Specific support levels would be defined and agreed at the planning stage of an engagement to reflect client needs.|
|Service constraints||Other than constraints that arise from the Cloud environment itself, (specific to the host or host technology such as Oracle, Azure or Google) Incorvus does not apply any specific constraints to its services. We will endeavour to meet all reasonable requirements although there may be additional charges in order to meet all of these.|
