Architecture - Vision to Action

i3D offer our clients an IT architecture service to help translate business and IT visions into a clear IT target for the future.

We listen to, review, and assess clients’ current IT state, vision, and strategy so that we can provide recommendations on target architecture and help clients build a roadmap that will enable them to achieve their goals. We can offer thoughts on quick wins, longer term opportunities and reuse of technology in our final reports.

Just as business vision should drive all activity that a business conducts, so too should architectural vision drive all architectural design within an organisation. This service ensures that whatever level of maturity clients are at, and level of resource clients can commit, the output is a clear document that defines goals and steps needed to achieve them.

Challenges We Address

  • The need to modernise technology has not always allowed time to strategically assess the optimal path
  • Complex environments with legacy applications supported by a variety of Third-Party Suppliers
  • Miss-match of IT and Business strategy or an unclear IT strategy
  • High IT expenditures with little reward or progress
  • Prioritising IT projects to maximise budgets
  • Effective communication of complex ideas and requirements to key stakeholders

Our Approach

We draw on best practice frameworks and our consultants' experience to develop standards-based documentation that is coherent and clear about the opportunities for clients’ organisation.

Assess: We will look at the current state of our clients’ IT estate and their architecture documentation, any vision or IT strategy/ roadmap that they might have. We will record this into a current state document.

Advise: We will then look at our clients’ business and technology goals and drivers and offer a proposed target architecture for their organisation. This will include recommendations on how best to achieve this end state. We will tailor these proposals to clients’ circumstance and can offer insight into different outcomes based on different levels of resource commitment.

Optimise: We will look for, and highlight, opportunities for quick wins in progress towards the end state. We will also share recommendations for reuse, re-purposing or expansion of existing technology and infrastructure to meet future needs.

Verify: i3Works will work with you to identify a verification strategy, if this includes performance as a critical factor then i3Works will assist you to define a representative test environment for you to perform performance validation before migration.
