|How the planning service works||
The planning and initiation phase of a cloud project is one of the most critical elements. Research shows that establishing the right environment for a project up front has a major impact on the success of the endeavor.
Roc, through its joint venture with two leading Oxford University academics, will help you de-risk your project and deliver tangible business benefits.
We do this by supporting you on your journey to the cloud with experienced delivery professionals. We will help you define your outcomes, choose options, ensure your readiness for the project and help you develop the appropriate approach for delivery.
|Planning service works with specific services||No|
|Training service provided||Yes|
|How the training service works||
Our unique approach to cloud adoption leads you and your colleagues through technology change, embeds new ways of working and accelerates the results from anticipated benefits.
Our team of consultants work within your organisation to develop a strategy that addresses your challenges and has the organisation’s outcomes in mind. Our strategies ensure people develop the understanding, skills and knowledge they need to be able to change their working habits – it’s a challenging process.
We deliver these services by applying our Excite, Equip, Embed approach:
EXCITE makes people aware of the technology change and helps them understand the benefits it will give them. It ensures people are enthusiastic about what’s on the horizon and creates the desire to change.
EQUIP gives people the skills and knowledge to use the technology effectively through relevant, effective and contextual learning solutions. Learning can be online content, guides, face-to-face or virtual delivery.
EMBED recognizes that habits are hard to break and it is easy to fall into familiar ways of working. It also recognises that working in your organisation might be a unique experience. We find ways to promote and reinforce use of the technology beyond the life of the project.

Setup and migration

|How the setup or migration service works||
Roc has skilled consultants and engineers that can help you migrate your current applications and services to the cloud or from one provider to another.
First we help you understand the existing services you wish to migrate and answer questions such as; What dependencies do the systems have? How can you minimise the impact of migration for users? What resources will the systems require?
We then support you in developing a technical and operational plan for the migration prior to the start of migration.
Finally we provide full lifecycle services for every aspect of your journey to the cloud.
