Solutions Architecture

To begin with, put the right technology solutions at the service of your business and customers. Also, a good solutions architecture not only satisfies the functional and non-functional requirements, but it also addresses system scalabilities and maintenance in the long run.

How technology drives business in the digital era 

Once upon a time, your tech stack was a problem for tech people. However, in a digital world, technology strategy is inseparable from business strategy.

Digital leaders rely on technology platforms to enable collaboration, agility and a customer-first mindset. Moreso, technology expertise matters more than ever, but making the right tech choices is now a whole-of-business concern.

Wilbertz Group excels at smartly architecting and swiftly developing experience solutions. Deploying a proprietary framework, our solutions architects define and create optimal solutions, with an unshakeable focus on business efficiency, user experience and business need.

Working with a solutions architect 

Early strategic decisions can make or break a technology project. Even if you’re not a tech guru, there are some important qualities to look for in a technology partner:

Firstly, careful requirements gathering.  Before your experts start talking, they should be listening – taking the time to understand your existing tech stack and new requirements inside and out.
Secondly, tech agnosticism.  You want a partner who can recommend and build on a wide range of technologies – one who won’t push something on you because it’s what they happen to know.
Finally, clear communication. Your tech partner should empower you with the information to make sound strategic decisions, whether you’re an IT veteran or a tech novice.

Our Solutions Architecture process

Finding the best solutions architecture demands pragmatism, communication, and weighing up many factors. Our process is designed to deliver.

Current State + Requirements Gathering

Assessing now, planning for next

Our job is to select the best technology to support your business objectives. That process begins with a deep dive into the tech you currently use, which solutions you are reevaluating and what business needs the new solution will have to meet.

 

Vendor Consultation

Building out the shortlist

The technology market is fast-changing, therefore, our solutions architects maintain up to date knowledge on changing features, reputations, and price points.

In addition, we apply that knowledge to create a short list of solutions architecture to assess. Once we’ve shortlisted potential vendors, we put them through a careful vetting process. This is done through gathering information about how they can address each and every one of your business requirements.

 

Assessment

Making an informed recommendation

Applying our proprietary framework, our solutions architects evaluate each solution against your requirements. Moreso, we evaluate functional requirements. That is how well each solution will do what you need it to do as well as non-functional needs like security, availability cost etc.

Our solutions architects give each requirement a unique weighting, based on how important it is to your project, and assign a score to each one. Because the process is objective, you get an apples-to-apples comparison that leads to a firm, reasoned recommendation.

 

BRD & Architecture Decision Document

Planning for a flawless implementation

After we’ve planned out the new digital ecosystem, our solution architects put together an Architecture Decision Document. This sets out the systems landscape, showing integration touchpoints and laying out implementation strategy (packtpub.com). Also, your functional requirements are broken down into epics and user stories. Later, they will be organized into a Business Requirement Document
