Mainframe Services: Mainframe Staff Augmentation & Standby

    Mainframe ServicesStaff Augmentation & Standby

  • Flexible, temporary access to our unrivalled skills pool, bridging any skills or resource gaps in your in-house mainframe team.

  • The answer to your mainframe skills resourcing challenges

    A unique range of mainframe infrastructure services, RSM Partners' Staff Augmentation and Standby Interim Services have been specifically developed to respond to both short and long term staffing challenges. These may include: short notice, short duration project work; sudden loss of staff due to resignation or illness; long term planning to meet the demographic challenges of an aging work force. While Staff Augmentation has been developed primarily for project work, Standby Interim provides emergency cover for 'business as usual' work.

    We also offer access to RSM Partners 'Mainframer in Training' service: a structured education and work experience programme that delivers mainframe tuition, practical project work and mentoring, to help clients accelerate the building of their in-house teams.

    Staff Augmentation

    Staff Augmentation balances the business demand for short duration, short notice projects with readily available senior and principle mainframe experts. This service mitigates the risk of the unpredictability of the business making requests of the mainframe environment that cannot be fulfilled due to resource and skills issues.

    Standby Interim Service

    Standby Interim is a variation of our Staff Augmentation service, when we focus on keeping your lights on activities running in an emergency. Standby mitigates the operational risks caused by single points of failure within BAU mainframe teams caused by sudden departures of key staff. You can invoke a rapid, fully informed interim service, and quickly react to any resourcing issues while keeping the mainframe lights on. Once invoked, RSM Partners will also help you to transition back to your BAU solution.
