Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Whichever stage of the transition you are at, Gaia will be able to engage, support and assist you starting with the Business Case Development, Strategy and Road-map, Service Design, migration and legacy off-boarding.

We can assess business, technical and service requirements, rationalise the infrastructure portfolio, develop the cloud strategy, road-map and end-state architecture and manage the change program.

Our Planning and Design phase aims at gathering customer requirements, stakeholder information and timescales; and documenting and assessing existing services and desirable features of the new replacement service.

Setup and migration

Setup and migration
Setup or migration service available Yes
How the setup or migration service works Since 1992, Gaia has helped a large number of public organisations improve their business process and operation management through assessment, evaluation and matching technology to their objectives.

We aim to help develop and speed the take up of Cloud First approach through multi-area service reviews with professional services engagements. This helps to work together with the various teams in order to achieve a supporting baseline in addition to senior and executive support. We cater for customers at various stages of assessment, adoption and migration maturity; from development of business case, strategy and roadmap, through to individual service design, migration and legacy off-boarding.

This is done through close working relationship with Business, Technical and Operational Teams and continuous feedback through online project information updates as well as pre-set Audio/Video Conferences and Face to Face meetings.

The Project Manager remains the focal point for all communications and the role involves project managing the implementation and control of the Scope of Works, including managing defined phases, underpinning stages and boundaries and controlling risks.
