Architects can maximise the return on enterprise investments by adopting a methodical approach. By enforcing a coherent and consistent framework, architects will be able to design solutions that better meet business needs, the enterprise eco-system, and external constraints.
Our expertise in architecture management and transversal knowledge - from infrastructure to business processes - can help you enforce corporate standards and policies. Our architects also have the knowledge and skills to assist you in the day-to-day management of your IT assets. They can manage your information network security and implement the best practices for your industry.
Unsatisfactory incident solving due to complex architectures that were not always documented, or were so with various levels of readability and traceability.
Solution / Installation and implementation of a documentation solution for critical applications. Upgrades to asset management and architecture processes.
Outcome / Architecture of most critical applications documented, which led to reducing incident solving time.
Need for a Belgian subsidiary of a large coproration to adopt corporate policies and technical standards.
Solution / Construct scenarios considering contextual risks and value, to ensure that identified solutions fit customers’ strategy.
Outcome / Our customer became compliant with the group's standards and their transition was supported and smooth.
Need to fix major issues detected by external auditors and mitigate risks on applications availability.
Solution / Identification and completion of mitigation actions in task force mode.
Outcome / Customer in control of affairs. More and safer SLA's.
Business departments often face technical constraints when receiving feedback on their requirements from operational and technical teams. In this context, technical and solution architects play a key role, helping both functional and technical teams to meet their goals.
Years of experience in highly-regulated environments have provided our consultants with significant expertise in analysing business and functional requirements, assessing impact on architecture, and proposing sound technical solutions.
The infrastructure had been built iteratively with heterogeneous components, and was getting more complex and costly.
Solution / Work on the customer's existing architecture process. Promotion of functional and architectural best practices.
Outcome / Convergence and pooling of resources, economies of scale, and higher control over exceptions.
IT architects faced difficulties in meeting business requirements.
Solution / Sharing state-of-the-art knowledge. Identifying optimal cost and quality solutions.
Outcome / Solution for critical projects with international partners.
Comply with architecture rules imposed by the market and strengthen their adoption by technical teams.
Solution / Disruptive suggestions to both executive managers and technical teams thanks to a fresh and unbiased view on the industry.
Outcome / Architecture designs allowing projects to better comply with risk and security management principles.
Architectures developed by Internet players have always proven far better at solving challenging issues than traditional enterprise architectures. Today this technology is available to any organisation. This is a fantastic opportunity to make their existing IT enterprise architectures converge with Internet-type architectures.
We developed expertise in desining and implementing best fitting event-driven architectures (EDA), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions, and more. We can help you address your trickyest challenges in the design, implementation, integration, installation, support, and maintenance of complex systems such as Hadoop, real-time stream processing, distributed resource scheduling, and pattern-matching.
Information was collected in silos, which hindered correlation tasks and was a suboptimal usage of the infrastructure.
Solution / Proofs of concepts showed that EDA was the right solution. We implemented a system of complex event processing (CEP), an enterprise service bus (ESB), and Android and web user interfaces.
Outcome / Integration of initially isolated architecture components into an EDA.Enablement of correlation between historical (internal) and real-time (external) events.
Need for an in-house Data-as-a-Service solution, in order to ease the integration and the orchestration of a distributed framework.
Solution / A highly scalable job-analytics platform for efficient resource management, elasticity, and dynamic horizontal scaling. A set of APIs and a configuration-based approach for straightforward integration of any distributed processing framework.
Outcome / Standard and simpler integration, orchestration of configuration management tasks, optimised cluster resource scheduling. High efficiency increase in everyday work of customer’s data science activities.
