Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
Yes
How the setup or migration service works
Cantium will provide assistance when setting up and migrating to a new architectural solution or delivery model. Cantium enables customers to develop an appropriate governance model for their environment. Cantium will provide a suitable governance framework that enables delivery teams to implement the solution in a way that meets overall simplicity or the non-functional requirements of the architecture. By developing guidelines such as architecture principles and strategic drivers Cantium provides an environment for technical change to flourish.

Cantium’s expert architecture team will derive a full understanding of the discrete domains within the architecture. This enables them to make informed decisions and advise customers on the most appropriate way to proceed with their change. Changes are then aligned to business domains or functions to ensure they deliver value. By analysing the estate this way, Cantium’s architecture experts are able to provide delivery and migration planning advice on how to implement the change required.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
All experts provided through this service have extensive experience of quality assurance and automated performance testing in production environments. Cantium actively encourages the adoption of test coverage, automation technologies and test techniques to reduce risk and safely increase delivery velocity.

Wherever possible Cantium use automation technologies to ensure consistency with test scripts and reduce customer effort. We ensure that as part of the assurance process we focus on enabling continuous delivery by automating checks to ensure that any new code or system is secure, performs as required and operable. Cantium will ensure that the new system adheres to a set of standards and produce a set of standard outputs for monitoring and security. The governance framework provides clear guidance on checking these standards and the team can be informed whether they are following them without a manual central review.
