How the planning service works
Our in-depth experience, gained from of delivering cloud based implementations for our other clients, helps bring a fresh and well rounded perspective to all our deliveries. Based on our initial assessment of the challenges and work required, we set up a tailored, client specific leadership team using internal and external consultants covering both technical and delivery expertise. This expert team works closely with our clients to take a holistic view covering all aspects including technical as well as commercial considerations and builds robust solution designs and actionable delivery plans. This initial planning work also includes identifying the most suitable methodology i.e. Agile, Waterfall or mixed methods, to suit the implementation phase and the client's business environment. Through such close working, we also provide "expert customer" capability to our clients, which in turn ensures getting the best value for our clients during supplier negotiations and engagements during the planning phase. Our planning services include Feasibility Planning & Business Case Preparation; Requirements Management; Enterprise Architecture and Solution Design; Security Risk Analysis & Mitigation Planning; Production and non-production environment planning; Cloud Transition & Data Migration Planning; and Business Change planning.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
Yes
How the setup or migration service works
We extend the initial team with additional experts, including sub-contractors, where appropriate, based on the demands identified during the planning phase. The extended team continues to remain a combination of both delivery management and technical professionals, who work closely with the client teams to implement the project scope. Our consultants bring with them a wide variety of experience and take a holistic view of all activities to migrate our client's existing on-premise services to cloud based services and where appropriate build new ones. Our Cloud Delivery Services cover Programme & Project Management; Technical Delivery Management; Agile Delivery Management; Agile Product Management; Delivery Assurance & Supplier Management; Quality Assurance Management; Production and non-production Infrastructure & Environment Delivery Management; Business Change Management and Service Transition Management. Our Cloud Engineering and Testing Services cover Solution implementation in a Cloud hosted environment; Migration of legacy apps and data to a Cloud service; Cloud System Integration; System Testing & Test Automation; and Cloud Deployment and Service Monitoring. Our teams have experience in Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS and Google Cloud hosted services and have successfully integrated on-premise systems with these and other Cloud based systems and SaaS applications.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Our delivery experts are well versed with providing leadership on quality assurance activities on large scale projects involving cloud infrastructures. We have worked on large scale implementations involving multiple external suppliers and provided quality assurance services to ensure their deliverables meet the client's requirements and quality standards. Whether we are assuring the quality of our own deliverables or those of external suppliers, our approach includes identifying the risk areas, defining appropriate quality assurance strategy to mitigate identified risks, aligning appropriate testing activities, building the required test environments and managing the test execution. We take a holistic view covering all aspects of quality assurance, covering standards review and testing. Test activities include functional, integration, performance and user acceptance testing. We even assure service monitoring and alerts to ensure services are fit for our clients, not just from business perspective but from a service perspective too. We look to automate the test activities where possible to reduce manual effort. For specialised testing like penetration and vulnerability testing, we use external specialist organisations and such work is priced accordingly. Equally, we can work with such specialist organisations appointed by our clients, if it provides a better price advantage to our clients.

How the support service works
Our support activities are primarily focussed on the early life period to ensure the systems delivered by our consultants are performing as expected in the production environments. During this period, we aim to also build client's own internal capability or that of a support organisation appointed by the client to reduce ongoing reliance on support from our consultants. Our consultants can remain available until such point that the client feels confident in the ongoing support capability. The duration for such support can be agreed as part of the contract and extended as necessary. Our experts can also support clients in selecting suitable suppliers or even recruit and build internal teams to support the live services. We actively manage handovers and knowledge transfer activities to ensure a good transition.

Support levels
Our current services are primarily focussed project based activities, including early life support following a successful rollout of cloud based solutions. As part of our service, we ensure a smooth transition to service operations by either building the necessary capability within the client teams and where required, supporting clients with selecting suppliers to provide such capability and ensuring a smooth transition to their services. If required, we can extend the support from our consultants until the client feels confident of the abilities of the ongoing support arrangements. If the clients require us to manage the services on an ongoing basis then we have the required skills to do so and can set up a team to fulfil the client's support requirements.
