How the planning service works
Barclay Simpson Solutions utilise our industry expert consultants to help organisations plan, build and migrate to coherent cloud strategies, with a particular emphasis on matters of cyber, security and risk. We align our services and consultants to customers' business strategy, supporting clients with all aspects of identifying and evaluating options, developing and implementing plans for migration to cloud-based services. We understand the governance, practical, financial and resource/skills constraints that most public sector organisations are working with and have effective strategies for addressing them as part of the planning process. Our processes determine the key business functions/systems and their potential for being provisioned as cloud services, determining the optimum platform – private, hybrid or public cloud. Successfully transitioning to the target architecture requires effective Programme and Service Management expertise and Barclay Simpson has experienced engagement managers who are used to driving the multiple workstreams needed to ensure a successful transition. Through the effective use of Management controls (typically using Prince2 and ITIL), we are able to work with clients to ensure sound governance so that risks and issues can be identified, assessed and mitigated.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
We offer both quality assurance and performance testing of against all services, processes and technologies impacting security for our clients. We understand the importance of ensuring services are not impacted by the poor performance which affects user experience. We can undertake thorough testing to ensure all services have adequate measures, functionality and resilience in place and the cloud function is configured optimally for internal and external access, safeguarding against unwanted access. Activities such as load and stress testing help validate that services are able to cope with any spikes or unwanted attempts to secure data or systems.

Quality assurance is a critical part of all projects and is intrinsic to our high-performing teams to ensure that they are practising continuous improvement. We work with clients to help initiate, support, coach or run QA teams and create quality testing environments in which to create, maintain and improve cloud security services. In short, we help our clients to ensure that best practice testing techniques and processes are followed through the entire project process and beyond.
