Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
Depending on a clients cloud maturity and the applications target state we can start the planning process at different levels. Our planning process is designed to satisfy the requirements of the organisation, whilst allowing our development teams to become productive and delivering value against the given task as early in the delivery lifecycle as possible.
Typically we would cover the following broad project stages;

Scoping & Discovery: Gathering project scope and initial detailed requirements

Sprint Zero: Environment & Project setup, Team kick off

Sprint x n: typically 2 weeks of development, test and release

Handover: Either to Appsbroker or Client support services

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
Yes
How the setup or migration service works
1. The Appsbroker team will work closely with you to analyse current workloads and define a scope for the workshop. We will collect all the information and data required for the set-up of the test environments on the Appsbroker hardware and Google Cloud Platform.
2. All businesses are unique. We’ll shape the workshop week to fit your needs and challenges. To achieve everything we set out to, a minimum of 2-3 days is expected for the onsite experience.
3. You’ll receive a written report of the
output data from the workshop and the benchmarking outcomes. This will include details of configurations used, the methodology followed, performance observed and recommendations for next steps. Appsbroker will also produce a Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) statement to indicate the business case for Cloud versus on-premise.

Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Non-functional requirements are defined during our Agile delivery process. Requirements are then fed into our acceptance & test criteria. Given Agile delivery, Appsbroker employs a CI/CD strategy, therefore tests are automated and run against each code commit.

  • Hosting or software provided by your organisation
  • Hosting or software provided by a third-party organisation
How the support service works
Our support function can support the whole application stack; from the platform, through infrastructure and the applications code, database and services.

Support packages are designed around specific requirements from our clients, based around the supporting needs of the different user groups.

Service scope

Service constraints
Our support doesn't extend outside of Google Cloud, for example, integrations into on-prem systems.

Providing support also generally comes with the caveat that only certain elements of the application can be modified, for example, we cannot support infrastructure if we are not responsible for the maintenance and management of that infrastructure.
