Planning service Yes
How the planning service works SBL's Cloud Specialists will arrange to scope the current infrastructure for compatibility with the implementation of the service required. Scoping sessions can be carried out on the customer site or through call, dependent on the customers preferences. Running concurrent to the technical feasibility assessments, the Account Manager will establish the desired outcomes of the proposed services, and compare this to the business objectives of the customer. Utilising this information, a planning consultancy workshop will take place. An implementation plan will be designed, inclusive of the aims of the relevant stakeholders and the Technical Specialists knowledge of the infrastructure. This will be presented to the customer for review and approval. This will be refined where necessary, and implemented upon acceptance. Throughout implementation, Cloud Consultants will be available to offer advice at any stage and will provide full knowledge transfers following the new services.
Planning service works with specific services No


Training service provided Yes
How the training service works SBL provide a range of training solutions across cloud technologies to deliver a broad selection of outcomes at all levels of an organisation. This can range from single day workshops to bespoke transformation consultancy. If required, SBL will deliver training and consultancy to a manufacturer/vendor/industry accredited qualification scheme e.g. CISSP, MCP, VCP, AWS, Cloud Migration.

All training will be delivered in a format that meets the organisation's requirements, either in SBL's in-house, designated training facility, or at the customer's chosen location. Following training, a detailed training record will be provided. Training can either be structured around specific technologies, vendors/manufacturers or to address practical need.

In addition to this, SBL can utilise our dedicated training platform to provide real time evaluation of ability, using a test environment that replicates the organisations infrastructure and estate. This will provide the organisation with hands on practical experience without posing a risk to any live system.
Training is tied to specific services No

Setup and migration

Setup and migration
Setup or migration service available Yes
How the setup or migration service works Following the planning phase and sign off of the implementation plan, SBL will work with the authority to establish key milestones, KPIs and deliverables, which will govern the lifecycle of the migration. This engagement will be led by suitably qualified project managers (PRINCE2), technical and security (SC/DV) staff, where required. Throughout the migration/setup, review meetings will be held as required to ensure the continued success and progress of the project.

Prior to any work commencing, clear back up strategies will be put in place in the event of system downtime. These procedures will follow industry and best practice advice/legislation.

Upon completion of the implementation/migration an agreed, detailed and thorough user acceptance test will be carried out. Once this has been formally accepted, the setup/migration will be complete. Should any issues arise, SBL will work with the authority to rectify these in the most cost and time effective way possible.
Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services No

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing
Quality assurance and performance testing service Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works SBL will start by conducting a bench marking exercise to establish the objectives they would like to achieve and any associated metrics, or success criteria. A review of the service to be tested will then be carried out to ensure that these criteria can be evaluated in the most appropriate and effective way. Consequently, a thorough testing methodology will be produced and presented for review.

Following acceptance of the methodology, SBL will carry out the agreed tests in the proposed manner. A detailed report will be produced following the conclusion of the testing/assurance phase. This will include actionable recommendations should the service not have achieved the desired result. The report will be drafted by a technical expert in the relevant field with a suitable level of expertise in report writing.

The report will be reviewed by SBL and the Authority to put together a detailed action plan to ensure that the service/solution will deliver the desired objectives. As part of this review, SBL will carry out vendor independent assessments to ensure that the technology is technically compliant and cost effective.
