Planning service
How the planning service works
We will work with buyers at no cost to assess their project’s overall viability, effort and cost associated with leveraging the cloud. With their input, we will create a “Implementation Map” that serves as a living document that gets refined throughout the life of their project.
The Decision Systems Implementation map will addresses the following aspects:
- Business Objective (What specific results do they aim to achieve with the cloud deployment?)
-Challenges/Opportunities (What is the perceived gap between the existing & desired state?)
-Solution Capabilities (How will the proposed solution impact the objectives & challenges?)
-Financial Impact (Quantify the impact in either cost savings or improved operational efficiencies)
Planning service works with specific services

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
Our in-house experts are all about solutions, making your maximum benefit, our minimum requirement. We can manage all technical, service and commercial aspects of migrating your legacy systems to the cloud, which ensures that your data and software is migrated seamless and safely, and fully integrated with your new cloud infrastructure. We can also recommend and implement migration strategies of moving data, applications or other business mission-critical elements from an enterprise on-premise environment to the cloud, or moving those elements from one cloud service environment to another. Our comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery plans are fully tested and validated, ensuring that our team is satisfied and confident that the migration has been successful, before we hand it over to you for rigorous testing. Thanks to our solutions-driven approach, we are also committed to changing your local setup, where needed, to connect to your new cloud infrastructure, with a promise to make sure that everything is running smoothly and effectively before your legacy set up is terminated.
Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services
