Planning service Yes
How the planning service works We work with you to understand the needs of your organisation and the users of the service. We follow both the GOV.UK Service Manual and Digital Service Standard.

We start with a kickoff workshop to plan the work. Then, in discovery, based on our plan, we do user research to validate assumptions and uncover user needs of your service and do a technical assessment of the proposed solutions. At the end of the discovery phase, we produce user stores to take into the Alpha phase.

Setup and migration

Setup and migration
Setup or migration service available Yes
How the setup or migration service works We help to migrate to the cloud by first understand the application then putting together a migration plan, which covers: data migration, application migration, user testing, and cutover.

Once dry runs have been successful, and all tests have passed, we schedule a cut over date.

An example of this was when we migrated the GOV.UK Trade Tariff to the GOV PaaS.

Quality assurance and performance testing service Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works We work in an agile way with clients, we are open and transparent, we have a shared Trello board were progress is communicated and all cards go through QA testing. We conduct manual and automated tests on our code in staging envrioments and before any change is rolled out live into production it is approved by our clients.

We work with you to understand the usage/load and perform performance testing to meet your needs. We also install continuous performance monitoring tools (e.g. NewRelic) to ensure the application is responding within agreed limits.
