Planning

Planning
Planning service Yes
How the planning service works With over 9 years deploying and working with true cloud services, we are ideally placed to assist organisations with cloud implementations. We assume zero client knowledge so that we can co-create a plan that will always be safe and respectful of your organisation's existing situation and journey to the cloud. We find that it is often the people and processes part of the cloud implementation that is the hardest - the technology is often the easiest part, as cloud services are designed to be straightforward. We understand that cloud is just one part of a complex on-premise, hosted and cloud infrastructure and we help buyers navigate the optimum route to get the services they need in a way that works with what they already have. We always aim to get early buy in and understanding from IT, legal, security and business stakeholders as any cloud deployment touches all these roles, and implementations often fail because one or more roles are not on board. By addressing potential obstacles and risks early in the process, we aim to create a smooth transition to cloud services, in a way that provides maximum benefit for all stakeholders and users.

Training

Training
Training service provided Yes
How the training service works Our training addresses four key user groups: client administrators; super users or content creators; regular users; casual users. For casual users, training is often provided as web-based or video content, allowing the smallest impact on schedules. For all the other groups, a mix of classroom and remote content is available. We find that we can often implement a train the trainer approach, whereby we train a subset of user champions, either admins or super users, and these users can train others in the client organisation. For a cloud service, having a group of user champions is often a key factor for a successful deployment. Wherever possible, we limit classroom training to a single day. This helps clients schedule user attendance as well as minimising costs. We always adopt scenario based training focused on a particular set of user objectives, rather than just testing all the service features. For specific client needs, we can also provide one to one knowledge transfer: this is often delivered as part of an initial cloud migration project.
Training is tied to specific services Yes

Setup and migration

Setup and migration
Setup or migration service available Yes
How the setup or migration service works With over 9 years deploying and working with true cloud services, we are ideally placed to assist organisations with cloud migrations. We assume zero client knowledge so that we can co-create a plan that will always be safe and respectful of your organisation's existing situation and cloud migration needs. We find that it is often the people and processes part of the cloud migration that is the hardest - the technology is often the easiest part, as cloud services are designed to be straightforward. For new migrations to cloud services, we always aim to get early buy in and understanding from IT, legal, security and business stakeholders as any cloud deployment touches all these roles, and implementations often fail because one or more roles are not on board. For migrations from a third party cloud service to ours, we work with the third party to understand the best way to extract information from the existing service to maximise the client user experience when switching. For migrations from our cloud service to a third party, we expect them to drive the migration, and we work with the third party to explain the options for extracting information from our service.

How the support service works We provide a standard level of support with every cloud service, but this is necessarily focused on incidents that have the potential for service impact. It can often be a comfort to have access to an expert especially in the early stages of cloud deployment, or during migrations. We can provide fixed engagement support, focused on a set of project objectives, or we can provide call off support. In the latter case, the client creates a call-off contract for a set number of days, and then consumes the time as the need for help arises. This allows users to take responsibility for the cloud deployment, but still have an expert to contact as and when needed. The support scope covers four boad areas: the cloud infrastructure and service provision itself; interfacing with other cloud and non-cloud services; optimising the configuration of the cloud service; how to use cloud service features to best advantage. With our experience, we can also suggest strategic and tactical objectives, building on the best results from other clients'.
