Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
The Civica Delivery Manager (DM) utilises a proactive ‘Agile’ approach to planning the implementation of cloud hosting or software services. Civica’s approach to delivering the service is as follows: During initiation the DM will meet with the customer team and undertake desk study and research to: Identify - scope, terms of reference, roles and responsibilities, environment, outcomes, checkpoints, timescales, constraints, issues and risks. The outputs are combined with Civica’s knowledge and experience of planning the implementation of cloud hosting or software services across 2,000 major customers. This ensures that Civica’s planning service takes into consideration all factors and they are assessed, planned for and recorded. Manage - regular project reviews compare progress against the plan with any issues or risks identified and mitigating actions monitored. This iterative approach ensures emerging issues are incorporated into the plan and that progress is maintained across all elements of the plan. Realise - the plan is managed through to project completion to ensure the benefits of the cloud hosting or software services are realised. Lessons Learnt are fed back to the customer and future planning service projects.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
Yes
How the setup or migration service works
Civica’s proven five step process supports organisations migrating workload to the cloud or transitioning between cloud providers.

Cloud Strategy: understand your challenges and desired outcomes from moving to the cloud. We generate a cloud roadmap aligned to meeting your business, technology and operating model needs.

Discover and Assess: we engage with your stakeholders to determine the current application, organisation and service status; collating existing data on assets and services and combining tool-based and manual exploration to uncover dependencies, constraints and opportunities.

Analyse and Design: we collaboratively define a target cloud model incorporating governance, security, resilience and flexibility to meet your needs. Technology blueprint, and a prioritised and phased migration plan, produced to achieve the desired benefits ensuring that it fits with people, process, tooling and service needs.

Migrate and Transform: execute the plan, establishing governance and access controls, provisioning right-sized cloud instances and services and incremental delivery of migration of service, systems and data. Where appropriate we use repeatable, software and template driven provisioning and configuration to ensure consistency, efficiency and security.

Manage and Optimise: monitor and manage the transformed services to ensure planned benefits are delivered. Refine configuration and implementation based on experience to deliver a successful cloud migration.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
At Civica, the goal of quality assurance is not to give testing (including performance) its own phase but to embed quality across each of the phases for setup and migration. Discovery and Calibration – comprehension of requirements, data, environments and effort into test approaches and plans that underpin and steer the testing work. Collate current and desired performance, load and concurrency metrics including different use profiles (for example, for spike and soak testing). Identify tools appropriate to the project (such as JMeter) to aid testing Optimisation/Migration – working closely with the migration phases, verification points are identified (to isolate issues as soon as they arise), and test cases/charters are formed around these points. For performance testing, create automated scripts to simulate use of the system through realistic and edge case scenarios. Validation – execute the test cases and/or perform session based exploratory testing against the test charters. Run performance tests with different parameters to simulate varying loads and use profiles. Use visualisations to compare trends. Collaborate proactively on defects as they arise. Deployment – the testing balance shifts from defect identification to acceptance testing (user and operational OAT). Regression suites are created to support future changes.
