Technology - Enterprise architecture

Aligned with business strategy, we can help client on developing an IT enterprise architecture (includes application, information and infrastructure); using standard frameworks such as Open Group Architecture Framework ("TOGAF"), with a broad understanding of the sub-competencies and experience of managing a design authority.

Application architecture

Our application architecture can provide a blueprint for the individual application systems to be deployed, their interactions, and their relationships to the core business processes of the organization.  Application architecture components includes: application service catalog, application inventory and types, functional requirements, application (service) relationship model, data flow diagram, interface model, application phasing model.

Infrastructure architecture

Our infrastructure architecture describes the technology infrastructure intended to support the deployment of core, mission-critical applications.  The infrastructure architecture components includes: technology service catalog, technology inventory and types, non-functional requirements, network diagram, IT security model, data center diagram, server diagram, storage diagram.

  • Technology service catalog describes what non-functional components are provided by IT infrastructure, e.g. processing, storage, networking, security, presentation (clients), etc.
  • Technology inventory and types describes, for each software application, what technology platforms are involved - vendors, hardware, versions, etc.
  • Non-functional requirements are the statements of performance or service level agreements required from IT infrastructure, e.g. scalability, availability, throughput, capacity, etc.
  • Network diagram is a schematic which shows how applications, servers, data centers, clients and physical locations are connected, including network types, bandwidths, routers, firewalls, etc.
  • IT security model shows for all applications and IT infrastructure components, how security is covered: access, authentication, authorization, encryption, privacy, intrusion prevention, etc.
