Planning service
How the planning service works
1) Work collaboratively with the client to refine and analyse the requirements for the solution.

2) Determine correct mapping of technical components to cloud services, including whether the service and data requires additional protection due to sensitivity.

3) Architect (or rearchitect for migration) the Cloud service based on the requirements.

4) Apply performance engineering and security principles at the planning stage.

5) Support data migration planning in a secure and cost-effective way.

6) Assure the performance testing of the solution.

7) Aim to conform to Microservice Architecture Principles.

8) Apply an 'API-frst' mentality to Integration design.

9) Plan the MI implementation and regular analysis for ongoing monitoring.
