Planning service
How the planning service works
We support organisations implement cloud hosting or software services by asking key questions such as: What is the best delivery model? What are the key priorities for the business? What risks are we prepared to take? Do we want to deliver tactical, short term improvements or long term strategic transformation? What are the practicalities and organisational challenges in implementing the Cloud Strategy - and can we overcome these?
