|How the planning service works||
Nexus understand that an effective IT cloud strategy should be intrinsically aligned to operational and financial restrictions. Our IT consultants are able to work closely with you by employing a multi-faceted approach to help you to develop a strategy and governance structure that will use technology to improve the operation and management of your organisation.
In defining an IT cloud strategy, we help clients to identity gaps between their current IT capabilities and their current operation or future direction. Working in collaboration with your IT team we can help to design a cloud technology roadmap, identifying initiatives that enable you to reach defined goals. Whether you are looking to implement an IT solution, develop bespoke software, create a website or launch a SharePoint intranet, we can guide you through the whole process.
To successfully execute and manage an IT strategy, your organisation needs an IT governance framework that defines how users and operators can interact with your business technology systems and infrastructure. Our consultants can help organisations to create IT governance procedures that mitigate risks by managing user-access rights, operating protocols and change-management policies.

|How the training service works||
Your most valuable asset is a skilled workforce. Nexus offers a wide range of authorised and bespoke IT training courses catering for both end users and technical personnel. At Nexus we know how critical it is for organisations of all sizes to have effective IT and communication systems that integrate with your daily business processes.
Efficiency is an essential part of a successful organisation, so it is imperative that your personnel maximise your IT investment by mastering the hardware and software solutions that you deploy.
It's a proven fact that effective IT training not only equips individuals with the skills to be more productive in the workplace but also promotes confidence and loyalty. Your most valuable asset is your skilled workforce.
Training courses can be delivered at the Nexus IT Training and Exam Centre in Exeter or at your premises. Courses are available for most industry-standard software products, however bespoke training courses are also available for specialist software and other hardware and computer network infrastructure products.

Setup and migration

|How the setup or migration service works||
Working closely with your IT team, we fine tune our cloud deployment and migration proposals to plot the best route towards a successful business systems upgrade or the installation and configuration of new technology. Our cloud service migration proposals incorporate a clear definition of any work that Nexus or the customer may perform, outside of normal working hours if necessary to minimise any interruption of services.
When the cloud service migration project has been successfully completed we don't just leave you with your new service. We document important changes to your administration and management processes. All of the IT systems migration plans we produce include optional training programmes, support and maintenance or managed IT services.
