With ever-increasing technical complexity and rapid change, the role of solution architecture has become essential. 9Yards solution architects can provide the right approach which translates business, technical and information requirements into functional specifications. This produces a blueprint for the solution which informs the solution development and implementation teams, making it clear and easy for both the organisation and its stakeholders to digest.
The scope of solution architecture includes system qualities such as scalability, performance and security, together with the identification of design risks which can be mitigated early in the solution development process. It also includes how the solution will securely integrate with an organisation’s IT ecosystem and what solution components will be deployed during its implementation.
Most importantly, the design of a solution should be aligned with the intent of the change and enable the business outcomes expected from the change. These may include evaluating the maturity of a business capability, extending the functional scope of an existing solution, reducing cost, increasing productivity or introducing innovative changes to the way in which an organisation operates.
Why Settle for Good When You Can Get Great Solution Architects at 9Yards
At 9Yards, we use a proven approach to convert an idea into a business case and solution blueprint with accurate cost estimates. Our approach ensures core decisions regarding the scope of the solution are made in the design phase which allows solution development to commence with a level of certainty. This is achieved by capturing measurable business intent for the change, together with a well-defined scope for the change based on the business capabilities to be enabled.
We also work closely with business decision makers, enterprise architects, business analysts, project teams, vendor representatives, and other internal and external stakeholders. Our architects listen, explain, advise, influence and negotiate, all whilst navigating often complex project environments with competing stakeholder expectations.
We believe the experience we offer in this key discipline can identify and mitigate design risks, ensure more consistency and predictability in the design of change initiatives, and improve the overall velocity, throughput and quality of change within an organisation.
