|How the planning service works||
Deploying and securely accessing cloud services in a standardised & user friendly methodology is critical for the active participation and shared usage of procured cloud services.
Atkins provides a range of services to support organisations in the design & implementation of Identity Management systems including:
• Advisory Service – Atkins Cloud Identity and Access Management Service is specifically aimed at Information & Technology business and/or departmental leadership.
• Business Intelligence – Atkins have developed a set of business intelligence methods aimed at common infrastructure services to create rich data on users and their consumption of services.
• Technology Consulting – By adopting a technology agnostic approach, Atkins focusses on the process and workflow development first. The next stage comprises of the evaluation of the best technology to meet these process requirements.
• Identity Framework Design – The business intelligence collected is utilised in the design and implementation of best-in-breed identity management systems.
|Planning service works with specific services||No|
|Training service provided||Yes|
|How the training service works||
We can provide instructor led training for users and technical staff to ensure rapid adoption of and smooth transition to new software and cloud hosting. In addition to training we work closely with our customers to deliver tailored knowledge transfer.
We see knowledge transfer as an integral element of our assignment delivery so that our customers can continue to realise benefits after the assignment is complete. It is for that reason that we prefer to work as an integral part of the client team, building knowledge and familiarity within the client team as we go.
We believe that one of our key strengths is imparting our knowledge and experience throughout the lifecycle of a project. By engaging with clients in this way, we are able to transfer a firm understanding of the work being undertaken, the techniques being employed and the deliverables being created.
|Training is tied to specific services||No|
Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||
We can support clients every step of the way in their cloud migrations. This starts with a review of the fundamental “cloud foundations” that need to be in place to allow cloud services to operate seamlessly for users. Such foundations can include the procurement of bandwidth to the cloud provider’s hosting, or to the internet. It may be necessary to implement cloud directory services and/or identity management services as well as a cloud integration platform to allow views of data within the corporate firewalls to be safely and securely exposed to cloud services via APIs. We can support in the design and implementation of any cloud foundations necessary.
The migration itself is undertaken in a series of sprints in which the functions and integrations of the new cloud service are built upon, tested and reviewed. Bugs and issues are passed into the backlog of a subsequent sprint for resolution. Our specialist agile delivery/integration teams work alongside the client team to ensure ownership and knowledge/skills transfer.
Where necessary we can support clients with the service integration, change management, awareness and training for the new cloud capability to drive early benefits realisation and to minimise any productivity impacts arising from familiarisation.
|Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services||No|
Quality assurance and performance testing
|Quality assurance and performance testing service||Yes|
|How the quality assurance and performance testing works||
Atkins Aerospace, Defence, Security and Technology (ADS&T) holds ISO 27001.
New software or hosting will be subject to a rigorous testing plan agreed with the client. Each functional and non-functional requirement will be tested and will be retested at the end of each sprint to confirm its continued operation. Repetitious testing shall be scripted and automated where appropriate. Customer journeys will be tested by both testing engineers and sampled end users, where practicable. Performance will be tested in conditions as close as possible to real-world conditions, including network/internet traffic and transactional load, as well as under exceptional loads such as the running of large MI reports. In the event that a customer requirement cannot be met as expected, we will support clients in either rejecting the new product/capability or, where appropriate, in agreeing a pragmatic relaxation of an aspect of the original requirements.
The quality assurance of the new software, capability or hosting shall cover not just the validation of requirements, but also the suitability of the “look and feel” for the end users.
Atkins Aerospace, Defence, Security and Technology (ADS&T) holds ISO 27001 and all our UK businesses are independently certified as achieving the ISO 9001:2008 quality management standard.
