  • Application development framework and methodology

Implementing a Technical Infrastructure Architecture as part of an IT strategic plan requires solid planning, understanding your current architecture, and knowing what options are available to enhance the architecture and protect your current investment. Advantages of a properly designed and implemented infrastructure architecture are:

  • A more efficient IT operation:
    • Lower software development, support and maintenance costs
    • Increased portability of applications
    • Improved interoperability with easier system and network management
    • Improved ability to address critical enterprise-wide issues (like security)
    • Easier upgrade and exchange of system components
  • Better return on existing investment, reduced risk for future investment:
    • Reduced complexity in IT infrastructure
    • The flexibility to make, make or out-source IT solutions
  • Faster, simpler and cheaper procurement:
    • Buying decisions are simpler, because the information governing procurement is readily available in a coherent plan.
    • The procurement process is faster – maximizing procurement speed and flexibility without sacrificing architectural coherence.
    • The ability to procure heterogeneous, multi-vendor open systems.
