We need 2 simple graphics. One of them needs to visualise a process along which we provide our Consulting Services. The other graphic needs to visualise what is included in our Managed Services we provide.
1. Consulting Services
We provide specialised cloud consulting as a stand alone service. However, the type of consulting work required varies depending on what stage of the cloud adaptation process the potential customer is at (e.g. starting to consider Cloud or already using the cloud).
We would like a graphic that shows the cloud adaptation process as a very simple process with 4 separate steps. The steps are:
Design ⇒Plan ⇒ Implement ⇒ Configure
2. Managed Services
The core of our business is to provide Managed Services. A lot of things are included in our Managed Services and we need 1 graphic that visualises this.
Basically there are 2 parts to our Managed Services:
a) The base or bulk of our Managed Services are made up of services that can be grouped into 4 areas: Monitoring, Support, Management and Optimisation. That is basically the core.
b) However, we also include on a continuous basis some consulting along the cloud adaptation process. This is the value add advice and guidance our customers receive as part of the ‘package’.
All together they make up our Managed Services offering.
So we need a graphic that combines the base of Managed Services (a) with the 4 step process from our consulting services (b). Visually the process needs to be recognisable as the same as under Consulting but it also needs to look like it is part of the overall Managed Services. Also the process must be visually included in a way that it doesn’t take all the focus – it is an important value add but in the scheme of things doesn’t represent a big part of the Managed Services.
