Our Solutions – IT Architects help deliver IT Architectures that support their business processes.
IT Architects is an IT consulting firm specializing in Architecture. We offer a full IT Architecture Framework to address specific organizational business and technology problems and deliver full lifecycle solutions.
Our company focuses on both architecture and system delivery. We have been successful in assisting organizations in developing Integrated Enterprise Architectures to support their integration and interface requirements. Furthermore, we have delivered Enterprise Architecture Integration (EAI) solutions using some of the prominent EAI tools such as TIBCO, Vitria, BizTalk, Mercator (Ascential) and Business Connector.
Below are some of the examples of solutions to our clients problems:
DATA ARCHITECTURE DISASTER
PROBLEM: Our data is a disaster. Different systems represent the same data differently and data reconciliation is next to impossible. We cannot even begin to understand a data warehousing strategy.
SOLUTION: IT Architects™ Data Architecture produces an integrated data model for the organization and establishes data standards to ensure data consistency across applications.
PROCESS ARCHITECTURE TO THE RESCUE
PROBLEM: Our business processes are ill-defined. As a result, our systems do not fully support our work activities and data entry is duplicated to reconcile systems.
SOLUTION: IT Architects™ Process Architecture captures current business processes and restructures processes and activities based on optimized operational requirements.
SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE TO STREAMLINE OPERATIONS
PROBLEM: Our Applications support our business processes for the most part, but we still cannot consolidate data from multiple systems to streamline day-to-day business transactions and make timely decisions.
SOLUTION: IT Architects™ Application Architecture & IT Architects™ System Architecture provide the blueprint to map system functions to business processes and identify gaps in the applications. They also provide an understanding of the interfaces required to accomplish a business process where data comes from multiple systems.
TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE TO SUPPORT FUTURE INFRASTRUCTURE
PROBLEM: Our networks are unstable while we constantly face performance bottlenecks and storage constraints. Lost transactions also take forever to recover resulting in operational chaos and wasted time.
SOLUTION: IT Architects™ Technical Architecture provides the blueprint to compare current processing deficiencies to acceptable standards. It focuses on performance, security, recovery, and the operational impact of meeting pre-defined service levels.
PRECEDENCE ARCHITECTURE TO CONSOLIDATE MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS
PROBLEM: We have just been involved in a merger with a competitor while we still have to coordinate the operation of a recent corporate acquisition.
SOLUTION: IT Architects™ Precedence Architecture & IT Architects™ Process Redesign identify those business processes that are most critical or have the most impact on the overall organization. Once those business processes are identified, we know what to target and in what order we need to change them to support the newly integrated operational environment. These changes are measured in terms of time and dollar savings.
BENEFITS ATTAINMENT TO DETERMINE COST-JUSTIFIABLE SOLUTION ALTERNATIVES
PROBLEM: We know we want to implement an ERP to replace our mainframe applications and allow us to achieve an integrated system environment, but we are afraid the cost of implementation and sustainment will result in corporate suicide.
SOLUTION: IT Architects™ Benefits Attainment identifies the cost-benefit of an IT solution by providing a comparative analysis quantifying cost-reduction from both an implementation and sustainment perspective.
