Product Baseline Deployment

A Baseline Deployment engagement from Microsearch provides you with the quickest path to achieving value from your product implementation. This engagement incorporates an installation readiness assessment, product installation into one environment, baseline configuration, connection for up to two repositories using standard connectors, installation documentation, the development of one or more prototypes based on a relevant use case and knowledge transfer.

Solution Architecture

In combination with your solution architect(s), our consultant will develop and document the overall design of the solution, describing the structure and behaviour of each component, how it interacts with your operating environment, its infrastructure dependencies and the requirements to meet your non-functional requirements and the migration path showing the evolution from the baseline state to the target state.

Implementation Services

Our Implementation project methodology is designed to deliver results quickly without sacrificing quality. It is based upon our more than fifteen years of experience in delivering IDOL based solutions. We can manage the entire implementation project life-cycle including Requirements & Planning, Analysis & Design, Agile-based Build & Test phase, Deployment, Handover, Support, Operation and Knowledge Transfer. We can also conduct a Post Implementation Review to validate the Benefits Realisation and ROI.

Product Health Check

The product health check is typically a week long engagement that examines all facets of the product as it is implemented and used within your organisation. Aspects reviewed include architecture, configuration, administration, performance, user experience, database usage and more specific items depending on the product being reviewed. The engagement results in the delivery of a Findings and Recommendations report.

Performance Tuning

This engagement focuses on any specific performance issues you may have encountered with the implemented product, which could relate to throughput, machine utilisation or response times. An initial assessment is performed which often results in requests for your administrators to provide certain performance metrics, logs and statistics. These are then analysed in the context of your operating environment, business requirements, user expectations, product configuration and any customisations and specific recommendations are made to address the performance issues.

Major Release Upgrade

Upgrading software products, especially in production environments, is rarely straightforward. Depending on the nature of the integration in your environment and the inter-dependencies with other systems, this will often require an initial engagement to develop an Upgrade Strategy. This will include an assessment of new product features in the context of your business and make recommendations of new features to consider for implementation. The resulting Upgrade Strategy Document will then be used to help either guide your internal staff in performing the upgrade, or be used by our consultant(s) to perform the upgrade for you.
