|How the planning service works||
SystemsUp would run discovery workshops and analyse all applications and make recommendations for cloud readiness and the optimal hosting solution. SystemsUp, with reference to (and extending) the Gartner 5 Rs model, will advise whether the application should be Rehosted, Refactored, Revised, Rebuilt, Replaced, Retired.
1: Application Discovery. The first step is an in-depth discovery against the estate to identify many of the different criteria to produce a road map for application modernisation.
2: Create Application Passports. The next stage is to create “passports” for each application. This consolidates all the required application information into a single location/document.
3: Prioritisation of applications for re-platforming. To prioritise applications for re-platforming, they will be assessed and scored using criteria agreed with the client and detailed in the design. This will also review application lifecycle to identify services that may not benefit from a transition to cloud and may be retained as part of an on-premise service.
4: Deliverables: a spreadsheet showing application inventory, discovery information, recommendations. A summary slide deck. A call to run through findings. A meeting to present the results, with a high level plan and costs. The client can then choose to engage SystemsUp to deliver the scope of work.

Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||SystemsUp would need to understand the requirements and business outcomes prior to any setup or migration. We'd then undertake a discovery exercise, as this would provide invaluable insight into the organisational challenges and a snapshot of the current state. Following this, we would undertake the relevant high and low-level designs and create a requirements matrix to ensure that all the requirements were addressed and by selecting the optimal technologies and services. After the designs are approved we would plan the setup of the solution and any relevant testing required. Any migration would be carefully thought out and planned to derisk any potential issues and ensure minimal downtime and disruption to the organisation. Once migration is complete, we can provide early life support, handover to internal or external support teams and any required user and admin training.|

|How the quality assurance and performance testing works||SystemsUp provides a rigorous quality assurance internal review against all project objectives. All solutions are designed in line with industry/vendor design best practices with references included. SystemsUp can further leverage our partnerships with vendors to ratify designs if so required. Depending on the scope of the engagement SystemsUp will fully test the solution against any agreed Test Strategy, the output would be a detailed test report. Any risks that will affect the testing process will be listed along with the mitigation. This will ensure the final solution not only meets the stated requirements but exceeds the project expectations.|
