Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Projects are unique and will therefore have unique roadmaps. In order to design cloud hosting and software tools needed we help projects teams map out the key decisions that need to be made, questions that need to be answered and people who need to intervene at each step. Once the road map is complete it is possible to build the necessary cloud infrastructure and decide what software tools will be needed.
Planning service works with specific services No


Training service provided Yes
How the training service works Training will be provided through classroom and on-the-job coaching. There are usually 2 types of training provided: setup which is typically 5 days and project support which varies upon maturity of project team, project complexity and project length. Organisations should expect up to 5 days per month or project support once setup phase is completed.
Training is tied to specific services No

Setup and migration

Setup and migration
Setup or migration service available Yes
How the setup or migration service works Through the adoption of this standard way of working it becomes possible to build modules that can be replicated from project to project. Because some of the project information and lessons learnt should apply to all projects the storage and management of such information on a Cloud makes it easier to share and to become a Learning Organisation.
Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services No
