Solution Manager

Support

Assistance

Solution Manager

Take advantage of individualized consulting or expertise services to help you with your cloud project.

You can have a dedicated technical expert regularly monitor your project for the duration of the project. 
This service requires a preliminary qualification in order to determine how involved this dedicated Solution Manager would be on a monthly basis.
Additional assistance, expertise, and consulting services may be added upon request.

Customized services

  • Should none of the packs offered meet your needs, you can get a customized service offer.
  • Our Cloud Coaches will create a special order, specifying what work is to be performed, the terms and conditions of service, prerequisites, and limitations as well as the applicable pricing system.

Support

Our Expertise Pack allows you to adapt its content according to your needs. With this expertise service, you can take advantage of support and recommendations during the important or more complex phases of your projects in order to secure them and ensure their success.

For example, our Cloud Coaches are available to assist you:

  • With implementing a project in the Orange Business Services environment: use of our services, security, skills improvement, and performance
  • During the critical phases of your project, such as operating a service, launching new features, and performing predictable scaling

You can sign up for this service at any time—whenever you need it! You’ll only pay for the expert time you require.

Upon receiving your Expertise Pack order, a Cloud Coach will contact you by telephone to define the terms and conditions for performing the service: your expectations, the desired session date(s), and practical details.

The Expertise Pack is available in 1-, 4-, and 8-hour service packages. This service is based on 5 stipulations:

  1. The minimum unit of time (UT) is 30 minutes.
  2. Each request that you send by email counts as a UT.
  3. The number of UTs used includes the time spent with you on the telephone as well as the time spent investigating and carrying out the work.
  4. If a service requires several UTs, you will be contacted with a number of UTs, and a preliminary agreement must be reached before the work is performed.
  5. After each service session, you are sent a summary email indicating the number of UTs remaining.
