Redrock Consulting Ltd
|How the planning service works||
RedRock supplies a range of services to assist public sector organisations to plan for the transition of services to a cloud platform or between cloud platforms.
RedRock supplies tailor-made teams to meet your exacting requirements. Each organisation has a unique set of business processes, applications, data and infrastructure that needs to be clearly understood (as-is). Our SMEs will work closely with you to help define your desired Target Operating Model (to-be) and we offer a wide range of Management/Technical services to assist with service/business/digital transition planning from as-is to to-be.
Management and analysis services include strategy and roadmap preparation, business case preparation (including options appraisal), Enterprise Architecture, project initiation, management of budgets, and supplier and vendor selection.
In terms of deployment options, RedRock is technology agnostic and provides independent advice on the options available for cloud deployment solutions, covering such aspects as SaaS/PaaS/IaaS and whether to use private/public/hybrid cloud solutions. RedRock’s services include Cloud Solution Design along with planning for Service Transition (SIAM) solutions.
When considering data and information security as part of the transition, RedRock can supply SME teams in areas including Strategy (data and information security), MDM, Information/Data Architecture, Business Continuity, SPF and ISO27001 compliance, and threat modelling.

Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||
This RedRock service is one of a suite of services supporting all aspects of setting up new cloud services and migrating applications to the new cloud services from on-premise infrastructure and/or existing cloud services.
We offer organisations a tailored service, provided by SMEs, to ensure the planned cloud services are successfully provisioned and tested, fully hardened and integrated in accordance with the chosen deployment model, and applications are methodically and successfully migrated, ensuring they meet performance, availability, security, privacy and regulatory requirements.
Our cloud, data, security, and DevOps SMEs can support all aspects of cloud services setup including provisioning IaaS and PaaS cloud services on a broad range of public cloud vendor platforms, including Amazon AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, setting up private cloud and hybrid services, integrating with on-premise and other cloud services, creating automated (container-based) processes for software release and infrastructure changes and establishing effective management controls.
For migrating applications, we have skilled technical, data, security, QA and DevOps SMEs who can, for example, re-architect applications for the cloud, design integration and security solutions, install, configure and test services, applications, middleware and databases, and manage the migration and cutover to applications on the new cloud services.

Quality assurance and performance testing
|Quality assurance and performance testing service||Yes|
|How the quality assurance and performance testing works||
We employ a multi-level governance model:
• Sub-teams are responsible for producing output that conforms to the agreed business specification and project plan.
• These teams are managed by on-site Redrock Project Management.
• Overall output is reviewed and monitored by our SLT, who will work alongside the team on occasion.
Weekly Management review
Our formalised governance will involve a weekly management review of individual projects as well as the programme as a whole.
Redrock works to industry standards such as ITIL, Prince, Zachman, and TOGAF where these standards align to client internal process, or offer operation advantage.
Our quality assurance framework addresses process, define & design, technical, delivery and operational disciplines, and are installed at project initiation, running throughout the programme lifecycle.
In the event of remediation being a requirement, projects are escalated to a “resolve group”. A resolve group is chaired and sponsored by a member of the Redrock leadership team who, where required, are able to call on a wide network of Redrock resources, as well as the local team responsible.

RedRock services are provided by teams of SMEs covering a variety of activities including strategy, planning, design, management, transition, supplier and vendor selection, data management, information security, QA and test etc. All are delivered as a managed service underpinned by the same core values of Ownership, Partnership and Quality.
An experienced, managed services RedRock Technical Director (TD) manages each engagement, providing a single point of contact and remaining actively involved throughout to ensure that the organisation’s and project’s goals are well understood and that all RedRock teams are aligned with those goals. The TD will manage team selection and performance, handling the scale up/down of resources and on/off-boarding processes as required, efficiently managing the engagement. The TD will work collaboratively with you to ensure that each engagement runs as smoothly as possible, quickly addressing any impediments to a successful delivery.
