Planning

Planning
Planning service Yes
How the planning service works The Civica Digital 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 Digital’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 and migration
Setup or migration service available Yes
How the setup or migration service works Ivica Digital has a proven five step process to support organisations migrating workload to the cloud or transitioning from one cloud hosting service to another. The Civica Digital Delivery Manager (DM) is responsible for the setup or migration service and utilises a proactive ‘Agile’ 5-step process. Discovery – confirmation of scope, roles and responsibilities, terms of reference, business drivers, timescales, analysis of existing ICT environment, identification of components or applications to be migrated, confirmation of boundaries and interfaces, assessment of any constraints. Calibration – assessment of current environment to provide the baseline against which improvements can be measured. Assessment may include performance, costs, resources, outcomes and is recorded in a baseline set. Optimisation/Migration – planning and implementation of the changes including data conversion and migration to the new cloud platform. Progress managed against plan with timescales, milestone and checkpoints. Validation – testing against the baseline to ensure functional equivalency and to assess productivity improvements. Deployment – Switchover to include training, data migration, service and system integration and testing. This step is focussed on ensuring the successful adoption of the service and realisation of the benefits.
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 At Civica Digital, 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.
