Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
When architecting infrastructure solutions, our starting point is your business, your challenges, your objectives. Our focus is on enabling productivity, removing high cost investment cycles and increasing flexibility. When designing a technical solution, we consider all the technical and practical implications, including how users access applications and data; along with the available or required connectivity and networking. We will assess the comparative benefits of on premise infrastructure versus fully cloud based or hybrid solutions. This will include a range of specific considerations such as security, data retention, data protection, resilience, integration – and, of course, cost. Our design teams will draw-up an intelligent solution that brings elegance as well as effortlessness to your business.

How the setup or migration service works
We take a consultative approach to all its engagements. As part of any Cloud migration, a Technical Design Architect (TDA) will be appointed to understand the needs and requirements. The TDA will work with you to fully understand the scope and technical challenges and translate this into design and approach to meet your needs. Through this process, the TDA will also engage with the Project Delivery team to ratify the solution and migration approach before being put forward as the final part of the proposal.

Once the project is agreed you will be assigned a Projects team which includes a Project Manager and Lead Engineer (Will be complemented by other engineers depending on skills requirement). The project team will then lead the deployment through the agreed phases through to completion.
