How the planning service works
Worth begin projects with an exercise in familiarisation, getting to know the people, context and technical approach aligning to the Government Design Standards, Service Manual and Technology Code of Practice. Starting with people, getting to know teams and contributors, understanding the existing strengths, weaknesses and objectives to offer the correct complimentary support. Capturing the business context, policy and desired outcomes. Highlighting limitations or constraints; technical, financial or operational. Detailed review of existing systems, including their status, shortcomings or plans for development. Advice on appropriate cloud platforms. Consulting on re-engineering or replacement if more cost-effective. Working with in-house teams and partners to consider options. Advice on use of tools such as Docker, Kubernetes ,Openshift, Serverless to make the move trouble-free; migrating data to new cloud platforms and developing plans to move services in a cost-effective way that minimises risk.

How the support service works
To keep your Cloud application accessible and to comply with the latest security requirements, proactive maintenance is required. Security checks are built into external monitoring, patch management processes are in place, a dependency checker is kept running at set intervals, all based on OWASP best practices. We also complete root cause analysis, and maintain operations protection tools. The Support Team monitors defect management system for support applications and these activities are carried out regularly and are a standard part of our SLA: version management and update system components (planning updates both necessary and requested); version management source code (execute code and the version management); monitoring of the services (perform direct monitoring on the services to immediately view uptime and incidents); log review; WORTH will occasionally review log files from the production environment. Our services also include reactive maintenance
and support: responding to support requests (an online service desk /
Telephone / Skype / email); incident management, triage and prioritisation for incidents when reported or detected on monitoring; managed back-up / restore; hardware management (diagnosis & troubleshooting); change/release management.
