How the setup or migration service works
We have experience retrieving data from a variety of different platforms ranging from well documented open source systems to closed proprietary systems with no formal definition of their data structures. Our process allows us to analyse the data stored and provide the most efficient methods to extract data from the source platform and map that to the target cloud service. We also provide recommendations around data cleansing operations between the export from the target and before import.

No

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
We'll assess performance requirements for the project and use a variety of tools to provide the right level of quality assurance. This starts with careful descriptions of the systems to be developed to provide clear test criteria and that allows easy manual testing that the built solution meets the agreed scope. Automated testing can also be included in our projects to allow paths through the system to be checked automatically every time a change is made or new feature added and give confidence that new development hasn't caused a defect in existing functionality. We use a variety of performance tools to identify bottlenecks including LoadImpact and New Relic.
