The one-day site assessment is suitable for small sites and/or simple projects. The one day is broken into a half-day meeting and half a day for report generation delivered by a GovCMS Engagement Manager and Solution Architect.
The final report assesses the site requirements against the current GovCMS functionality and makes a recommendation for which service offering, SaaS or PaaS, is the best fit.
Cost: $4,200 + GST per site (see breakdown below)
The one-day site assessment follows five stages:
Review questionnaire or brief: Agency to complete a light questionnaire (or send us a high level project brief) reflecting basic requirements and/or project key business drivers.
Intake and alignment: We conduct a free 30-45 minute intake phone call to align on scope, expectations and overall engagement requirements based on your questionnaire or brief.
Lightweight discovery: Morning half-day on-site interactive workshop with key stakeholders to harvest requirements as well as educate on GovCMS SaaS vs PaaS options/features.
Assessment report: Afternoon half-day off-site producing the assessment report, which will cover GovCMS SaaS vs PaaS viability and includes a recommendation on best fit.
Presentation: A one-hour presentation of the findings after the assessment (this is usually presented remotely).
The outputs from the one-day site assessment are:
Site functionality matrix: Visual representation of all desired functionality.
GovCMS viability matrix: Each functional requirement is classified to determine the level of configuration/customisation, and therefore compliance, with GovCMS SaaS.
GovCMS assessment report: Executive summary slide deck for stakeholders representing assessment findings and SaaS vs PaaS recommendation.
Clear understanding on GovCMS SaaS viability and optional mitigations and/or alternatives for areas of non-compliance
Enables key stakeholders to make an informed decision on GovCMS SaaS vs PaaS
Other good things to know
GovCMS SaaS compliance classification — For each high level requirement a functional classification will be given on the level of GovCMS SaaS/PaaS configuration required. For example, basic config, theme development, ‘contrib’ module or custom module, etc.
Optional mitigation strategies or alternatives are provided if/when SaaS non-compliant requirements are identified.
