Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started We offer end user and technical training for solutions delivered including both generic product training and tailored programs for bespoke implementations. Where required our staff are trained to coach the customer team through their interactions with them during the project so that transfer of knowledge and skills can be facilitated as a core objective of a project.

End-of-contract data extraction We can provide a consultancy service at additional cost for our customers to facilitate their transition from our SaaS offering. We work with our customers to establish what their data migration needs are and then assist them in validating and planning the appropriate extraction strategy for their specific implementation. Depending on the customer's underlying data model and the Liferay functionality in use, different extraction processes may be necessary. Consideration is also required for the new system or alternative provider that the customer is migrating to. Some Liferay portlets provide capabilities that enable users to extract their data through UI options within the portlets without the need for assistance from our technical support team. For other aspects of the solution, it may be necessary for our technical support team to provide customers with database extracts and file storage copies that can then be used in their data migration approach. If the customer is moving their implementation to a different Liferay provider then it may be possible to facilitate an approach that reduces complexity and enables replication of the current setup within the new provider’s environment(s).
End-of-contract process We will provide technical consultancy support to our customers to enable them to determine and plan for the transition from our service. The consultancy time required can be used from the existing support contract or additional consultancy can be requested for an additional cost. Standard support terms, including SLAs, will remain in place until the end of the contract. At the end of the contract, a copy of Liferay implementation specific to that customer together with relevant database extracts from the Liferay database and any file storage will be passed to the customer. We will follow our standard processes and procedures to move the customer’s implementation out of our technical support and monitoring processes. The service will be decommissioned after the subscription contract term ends with customer access disabled. We will remove and or delete the data within a reasonable period of time after the subscription ends.
