Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||
We build on our collaborative approach to offer a tailored and bespoke set up and migration service. We will assess and recommend an approach to migration that has minimal impact and minimal risk.
Our setup offering builds on principles established through agile, reproducible, deployment pipelines ensuring setup and environment processes are automated and tested at each stage whilst providing visibility and audit to the customer.
Our migration service will, where possible adopt SaaS over PaaS over IaaS to minimise the cost and maintenance overhead of running cloud services. Application migration will be assessed for compatibility and licensing implications. Data migration will look at data transformation, data quality and privacy impacts to reduce risk of migration and disclosure.
All setup and migration services are provided with security and privacy in mind.
|Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services||No|
Quality assurance and performance testing
|Quality assurance and performance testing service||Yes|
|How the quality assurance and performance testing works||
Quality assurance is at the forefront of our migration and transition services. We will design and implement a complete Quality Management System (QMS) that is appropriate to the project. The QMS will define the quality objectives and business processes that the service will be measured against, ensuring transparency and success. The QMS is evaluated on a regular basis with the customer allowing for feedback and changes in approach. This process produces reliable and measurable results.
Performance testing is planned into the migration and transition processes from the start. Non-functional requirements (NFRs) wil be developed covering all aspects of the service, from process ownership, process modelling to developing volumetric models and automated performance test scripts than can be scaled to suit needs.

Additional support can be arranged following agreement with the customer.|
