Solution Framework

Discovery

We work closely with you during the early stages of your project to understand the business outcomes you’re want to achieve. We look at technology systems, processes and policies and provide a high level design in all areas that map directly to your stated business outcomes.

Design

Our team produce a low-level design that details all key aspects of the target system and secures formal design sign-off from your stakeholders.

Throughout the design process, we work in lab environments to build, test and adjust the final design.

Build

When you approve the design, we start the final build process, incorporating modifications to the design if business needs change. We pride ourselves on implementing secure, stable, highly-available and resilient hybrid cloud environments.

Transition

We assess workloads and services to deliver the right mix of private and public cloud solutions and where appropriate look to mature the service proposition my making use of PaaS services.

If we need to re-engineer an application, replace it with native cloud services, or introduce third party SaaS components, we make clear recommendations to quantify and justify the direction.

Manage

We write system run books as part of implementation. System run books are important to our managed service team during the transition from professional services project to managed service on-boarding. Where customers decide to manage their own environment we walk through the run books and ensure your own staff are ready to operate the new platform.

Service Transition

We use a tried and trusted ‘service transition’ methodology for all new clients. Onboarding takes around four weeks (though we are flexible with this arrangement). Activities include:

  • Contract award and sign off
  • Project initiation document (creation and sign off) engagement with stakeholders and third parties
  • Client business workshops & documentation review
  • Creation of technical standard operating procedures (SOP)
  • Client training workshops
  • Run Book production

Governance

We operate governance models in accordance with industry best practice and standards. Working in an agile fashion, we set out activities in two-week sprints with daily stand-ups.

For us, good governance is about strong management, appropriate processes, and insightful information.
