Support levels
MACS works with your organisation to put the appropriate support model in place, our standard model is based on the following levels. Level 0 – Systems Administration where we train and empower nominated staff members to act as a first point of contact. Level 1 - Provided by a trained MACS support engineer encompasses the first level of problem determination, diagnosis and resolution, plus the majority of operational and administrative tasks. Level 2 - Provided by the MACS consultancy team is following the Request/Incident Process. This is the escalation route for any support issues that cannot be resolved at Level 1. Level 3 - Provided by IBM. Level 3 Support is defined as the highest technical level of support in the model. Problems are passed to Level 3 once problem determination has taken place and the resolution requires a physical change either to the underlying application source code, its environment or its infrastructure.
