Planning service
How the planning service works
We work with clients to understand any existing systems and software they have as well as their needs and constraints. This could be through research or discussion, or it may require a technical discovery where our software architects conduct a deeper exploration of the legacy architecture. We then use this insight to explore solutions for implementing or transitioning to a cloud-based environment in a way that meets the client’s needs.

We have experience of migrating large, sensitive datasets to cloud-based environments within narrow timeframes, and of synchronising the end of one contract with the rollout of another. We’re careful to factor in additional time for security checks and other quality assurance processes that are required for implementations of this nature.

Training service provided
How the training service works
Our aim is to build simple, intuitive services that can be used first time without the need for extensive documentation or training. However we recognise there are some circumstances in which training may be required. In these cases we’re happy to work with clients to design an appropriate training plan. For previous clients we have provided in-person and remote interactive training sessions, job shadowing and coaching sessions.
Training is tied to specific services

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
Our support for clients migrating to the cloud or between cloud services is shaped by an understanding of the organisation, stakeholders, existing software, risks, dependencies and needs.

We have a track record of helping clients migrate from on-premises providers to the cloud, or from one cloud-based service to another. We’ve migrated a number of services from proprietary systems into vendor-agnostic data stores, in line with government standards for cloud hosting ensuring data integrity throughout this process. We agree protocols for secure data transfer in advance with departmental security consultants and then implement transfers as agreed.

We work with clients who hold data classified as official, secret and top secret and can support secure migrations for all classifications.
If needed we can work directly with your existing vendors to ensure a smooth and effective migration.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
We use government assured patterns and standards (such as the GOV.UK design system) and ways of working to ensure content and designs are of a consistently high quality. We carry out usability testing on all new software and iterate based on the findings.

For software and data we use a blend of automated and manual testing to quality assess releases. This includes automation testing, non-functional testing, performance testing, exploratory testing and functional testing. We integrate performance testing as part of our continuous integration (CI), deployment (CD) and delivery approach so it’s built into everyday development practices. We also engage our clients in quality assurance by making early versions of software available for review as soon as possible.
