Planning service
How the planning service works
IMD supports organisations with the development and implementation of cloud services by conducting a review of their project governance and controls structure to provide an assessment of their current condition. Whilst undertaking a review we will provide support and guidance and support the customer in the completion of actions which have been agreed within the reports produced from the governance review. Working together with the organisation, the implementation will be undertaken in a robust and timely manner to minimise any business impact. During this time communication with the organisation’s stakeholders will be continuous. All risks and issues will be captured and sufficient mitigations planned for and managed.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
IMD’s Project Governance and Controls service can be used to ensure that service continuity is maintained throughout any cloud setup and migration project. Implementing control processes and procedures will reduce the proximity of system failure, and or downtime. By controlling through our governance structures with key procedures and processes, it is possible to closely monitor any activity that could lead to unexpected disruption within the project.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
IMD’s Project Governance and Controls service provides customers with quality assurance on the project's performance associated with cloud services throughout the service lifespan. We assess the intended scope of the service and interrogate the current project controls and governance mechanisms to validate the impact of the delivery of the service at any point. Within the Project Controls service, we are also able to devise performance indicators based on service performance to assess how the service is performing against the intended, or desired standard.

Support levels
For each engagement through GCloud 11, you will be provided with an IMD Account Manager who will be your central point of contact throughout the delivery of services. Where possible, we aim to provide you with an Account Manager who has experience operating within the relevant field associated with the engagement to coordinate the delivery of similar services. 
In addition to the Account Manager, we endeavour to provide you with an additional layer of Account Support in the form of a secondary point of contact for each engagement. In this way, we mitigate the likelihood of having a single point of failure, and have mechanisms in place to maintain continuity of service. 
Support will be provided remotely via email and phone for the most part, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices when needed. On site support can be offered during the working week where requests are made prior to proposals being submitted / individual call-off contracts agreed. 
Your Account Management and Support resources are typically integrated into the delivery team and so costs are included within the proposal for each engagement.
