|How the planning service works||
We combine Scrum Agile project management and DevOps practice to help organisations plan and deliver AWS Big Data services on spec, on time and on budget. Our planning programme management will not just focus on managing time, cost, quality and scope. But also on stakeholders objectives and execute risk management efficiently, effectively and continuously. We`ll put in place the following programme structure:
1. Steering Committee - Provides overall strategy and direction and, particularly,
approves and manages the implementation plan and prioritisation of the project backlog.
2. Outcomes team - Reviews technical feasibility and maintains the program velocity, which includes implementation alignment, review of priorities etc.
3. Scrum teams - Focuses on delivery and validation and get direction from the Steering committee and core outcomes team.
Finally, Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) are essential ingredients of our AWS Big Data implementation. We deploy CI/CD practice in all our projects as needed.

Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||
The cloud provides a ready made arena, along with application components that go beyond network, server, and storage, which can all be managed programmatically. Unlike the on-prem setup, the cloud setup enables automation for essentially everything, easy to program, and provides much more advanced toolsets that
can be accessed programmatically. We help organisations migrate their Big Data workloads to the AWS cloud with no more than 3 phases;
Phase 1: We examine organisations current workloads, server types, pipelines and configurations, network topology, security, governance, and compliance requirements etc.
Phase 2: Our solution architects will help identify and design the correct Big Data AWS architecture according to the organisations unique needs.
Phase 3: We start the process of helping migrate applications and data, then perform post-migration validation. Once validated, we go live.
