Solutions Architecture

The modern business requires holistic solutions to business challenges. It needs requirements to be understood and translated to a technological solution that will satisfy them.

The modern business requires holistic solutions to business challenges. It needs requirements to be understood and translated to a technological solution that will satisfy them. The role of I.S. in the business needs to shift from providing and maintaining technological components, to providing solutions to cater for the complex challenges the business is facing.

With Endatio Solution Consulting services, it is always about the solution. Our Solutions Architects, partnering with our Strategy and our Infrastructure consultants where needed, are experienced in gathering and analysing the needs of the business and generating solutions architectures that cater for them.

Business Requirements Assessment

This activity focuses on interacting with the business, gathering, analysing and understanding the business and technical requirements. These requirements, in conjunction with any environmental dependencies will feed into the selection criteria for the technology and well as the generation of the solution architecture

Technology Selection

This activity accounts for the findings of the Business Requirements Assessment and focuses on identifying the optimum technology framework on which the proposed solution will be built. This includes development technologies, all supporting infrastructure, integration components as well as capacity and reliability requirements. This activity in turn feeds into the solution architecture.

Solution Architecture generation

Incorporating the results of both the Business Requirements Assessment and the Technology steps, the Solution Architecture Generation activity focuses on generating a prescriptive documentation of the proposed solution. Further to the technological definition of the solution, this activity also investigates existing patterns of design and aligns the selected technologies and design with the rest of the organization.

Specification and Development Management and Support

Following the generation of the solution architecture, Endatio’s solution’s architect will take ownership of the under development solution, manage the development effort and provide technological support to the teams as required.
