How the planning service works
Strategic ICT consultancy - sets to understand your business, people, culture and strategic objectives. This is then mapped against an audit which can cover critical areas such as:
Financial - looking at spend, budgets, risk, compliance
Technical - assets register, current technology usage and adoption, sector innovations and technology fit
Cultural, transformation & adoption risk, cultural impact & readiness assessment, training & support
Audit, Survey & Gap Analysis - Audit planning, design and implementation which can include Remote sites or multi-site audits which look to deliver consistent metrics covering a gap analysis to understand the ‘as is’ environment compared against the ‘to be’. This can be high-level, very detailed or elements of both based on initial analysis. The audits look to cover the important areas around performance, utilisation and compliance. This can include detailed onsite technical audits looking at Wi-Fi and network performance and cyber security, application performance management and WAN/LAN performance.
Business Case Planning & prioritisation - looks to take audit output and prioritise based on risk and strategic objectives to produce business plans for specific initiatives and projects that will have the greatest impact on cost, performance, productivity, compliance or risk.

Infrastructure Design - designing specifically for a highly optimised (cost, quality, performance) Cloud delivery.

Our design process ensures a consistent user experience of services whilst offering the highest degree of flexibility, ensuring certainty and choice whilst maximising uptime and reducing risk. Naturally, this is fully documented and delivered to your compliance standards and your business continuity and security needs
SoW - we produce a detailed Statement of Works to ensure everyone is fully aware of expectations, deliverables, dependencies and timescales. This is critical in reducing grey areas, project risks and ensuring a successful outcome.
Implement, test & Optimise - we build the environment to your performance and resilience criteria and according to your security requirements. You get to fully test the solution against a pre-agreed test plan. If it doesn’t pass the UAT, you aren’t locked into a contract with us and are free to walk away. During testing we also look at areas we can improve, this could be reducing bottlenecks o improving application or database elements to achieve greater throughput.
