|How the planning service works||
We combine Scrum Agile project management and DevOps practice to help organisations plan and deliver cloud hosting solutions 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 cloud implementation support. We deploy CI/CD practice in all our projects using tools such as; Jenkins CI, Ansible, Chef etc.
|Planning service works with specific services||Yes|

|Training service provided||Yes|
|How the training service works||
We provide Cassandra Database 3.9, CQL 3.3, and programming with Cassandra Training, Training for DevOps, DBA, Architects and Developers.
The Cassandra NoSQL database is one of the most powerful and widely used non-relational databases available today. It is a fault tolerant, highly scalable database with tunable consistency that meets the demanding requirements of the can’t fail, must scale systems driving growth for many of the most successful enterprises of today. However, along with that capability comes a new data and programming model that many organizations lack the expertise to use in an optimal fashion.
Our training course provides a technical introduction to all the conceptual and practical areas needed to use the Cassandra Database successfully, and deploy to production. It is written expressly for the new capabilities in the recent versions of the Cassandra Database, including CQL3 and the new DataStax Java driver (other programming languages available).
We also provide Apache Kafka training on the basics of the Apache Kafka distributed streaming platform. The Apache Kafka distributed streaming platform is one of the most powerful and widely used reliable streaming platforms. Kafka is a fault tolerant, highly scalable and used for log aggregation, stream processing, event sources and commit logs.
|Training is tied to specific services||Yes|

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 to the cloud or between clouds with no more than 3 phases;
Phase 1: We examine organisations current workloads, server types and configurations, network topology, security, governance, and compliance requirements etc.
Phase 2: Our solution architects will help identify and design the correct architecture from the target cloud provider 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.
|Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services||Yes|

Quality assurance and performance testing
|Quality assurance and performance testing service||Yes|
|How the quality assurance and performance testing works||
Our Agile Scrum philosophy requires that active user involvement is imperative: PO’s are involved and they involve final users. In particular, as part of the cloud implementation strategy, there will be a Pre-QA test for every implementation where our team demos the implementation and there will be feedback from PA/PO before marking QA as complete for each implementation.
We specialise in high-speed, in-memory, non-blocking, microservices performance tuning which often includes Cassandra, Kafka and AWS. Our team recently architected and implemented 100 million-users, in-memory content preference engine service with custom NoSQL service store as part of this effort wrote high-speed JSON REST/WebSocket framework for reactive computing model based on Boon and Vert.x (and a disk batcher capable of writing 720 MB per second).
|Security testing service||No|
|Ongoing support service||Yes|
