Planning service
How the planning service works
As a leading specialist in government technology transformation we can assist with every stage of your planning for cloud migration or adoption of cloud services.

Utilising our expert knowledge of government technology best practice we assist with shaping and developing your strategy, business case and technology roadmap, while performing cloud readiness and maturity assessments of your existing environment and capability assessment of your in-house staff.

We then work with you to design the new architecture, provide advice on evaluation and selection of cloud platforms (including AWS, Azure and GCP) and services, and develop a detailed project and technical migration plan for your legacy technology, applications and data.

All aligned to the Technology Code of Practice and latest Cabinet Office, GDS and NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) guidance.

We can also assist with operational and commercial exit plans from your incumbent service providers and with Target Operating Model design and planning for the capability development of your in-house staff to familiarise them with running, managing and supporting the new environment.

Training service provided
How the training service works
MSC Digital takes a “train the trainer” approach throughout the projects we undertake. This differs in approach to standard training courses, as your staff are mentored and coached in both the technologies and architectures we are delivering and in how to pass this knowledge on to their colleagues.We work closely with our clients’ technical staff throughout our engagements, helping them to “learn by doing” and transferring essential skills and knowledge to your in-house team.
We can also source and arrange formal training for our clients and their staff via relationships we have in place with several vendors (including AWS, Microsoft and Google) and training providers.
Training is tied to specific services
