Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
We will use enterprise architecture techniques to build views of your technology estate, aligning it with your business environment and ambition. This will include on premise, outsourced and cloud solutions. We will also capture architecture principles that will guide Solution phase activity.

Using a detailed understanding of your technology landscape we will articulate an architecture roadmap that will seek to underpin your business ambition. This will typically highlight consolidation opportunities, rationalisation and migration to, or between cloud systems.

We can provide independent advice to support you in the selection of digital and cloud solutions ensuring that the requirements from your business ambition is considered along with the architecture principles that ensure alignment to your roadmap

We can assist in the building of comprehensive and robust business cases to support technology decision making. We can also provide an independent challenge to existing business cases.

How the setup or migration service works
We will define the implementation plan for your technology change, including the transition to a cloud based solution. This may include trial periods or the management of a proof of concept. We can also fully manage your transition to the technology platform.

We can design a governance process that operates to guide your technology change at an enterprise, programme or project level, with pragmatism to balance delivery with strategic alignment. This can include the setup and operation of a Design Authority.

Introducing cloud solutions can cause issues with the ability to share data within the organisation. We can help plan and implement integration strategies to mitigate this risk and ensure that you maximise the value of your cloud solution.

We can provide an independent review your programme or project solution architecture at any stage of the lifecycle, whether you are using waterfall or an agile approach.
