Planning

How the planning service works
QA has a phased methodology and strategy to help our clients migrate to Amazon Web Services or between cloud services. We are following 6 R's migration strategy (Rehosting, Replatforming, Repurchasing, Refactoring/Re-architecting, Retire or Retain).

This includes:
• Analysis of the application's functional and non-functional requirements
• Translation of the application's (functional and non-functional) requirements, security, audit, etc., into a service catalogue
• Containerisation of application elements and any third party software products (where supported)
• Selection of appropriate Cloud provider/s.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
QA offers a broad range of independent quality assurance and performance testing services to assist our clients with their end-to-end performance needs.

Our consultants can perform performance analysis against your existing IT estate to understand utilisation and ensure you deploy the correct quantity of cloud capacity and do not spend more than is required.

Overall, our testing focuses on:
• Service Acceptance Testing - testing carried out by the Testing Specialists on the team against the set of components that, when integrated together, form a Service. This testing focuses on testing the Services deployed in a production-like configuration to show that each Service meets its related Acceptance Criteria (such as functional, performance and accessibility). This testing will cover the requirements related to Functional Systems Testing, Component Performance Testing, Regression Testing and Accessibility Testing.

• Platform Acceptance Testing - testing carried out by the Testing Specialists on the team against the collection of Services that make up the Platform in a production-like configuration. The focus of this testing is ensuring the platform is Production Ready - this includes platform security, performance, scalability, reliability/resilience.
