Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
We offer our customers a rapid discovery/planning service to enable us (as the service provider) to understand the full extent of the service needs and requirements, and the outline of the solution design (including infrastructure and security architecture requirements). The discovery/planning service may also identify what post-delivery support may be required to ensure the ongoing viability and maintenance of the service. Our team will provide step-by-step planning support (e.g. via the expertise of a Delivery Manager) typically working in agile fashion to create a viable delivery plan and, if appropriate, the prioritised backlog. We combine detailed planning with experienced risk management processes to ensure all aspects of the implementation are well-planned, controllable and measurable.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
Yes
How the setup or migration service works
Building on the initial planning work, our team works hand-in-hand with the customer (e.g. its key stakeholders, internal service teams and user representatives) to understand the setup and migration issues, either for migrating to the cloud or transitioning between cloud services. We use a deep-dive discovery approach, typically working in an agile fashion, to explore the migration needs. This may involve a detailed mapping between the as-is and the to-be services, helping the customer understand the technical, infrastructure and security requirements to support the migration (and the wider implications for the organisation), always ensuring that the chosen solutions are fully aligned to high level business strategies. We will also identify what post-implementation support may be required to ensure the continuing viability, benefits-realisation and cost-effective maintenance of the services. Depending on the scope of a customer's individual needs, these in-depth services may be provided via separate service lines at an additional cost.
