Improve Competitor Advantage with Microsoft Enterprise Architecture
In the current economic climate IT development departments often find themselves battling against time and budget constraints. Complex requirements coupled with inefficient development processes can impact on delivery of quality software, reduce business agility and increase costs.
To improve competitor advantage these IT development departments must be able to demonstrate a flexible and adaptable way of working. Depending on the nature of your organisation and industry marketplace, custom applications can provide the strong competitive advantage your business requires.
Microsoft Enterprise Architecture is a conceptual strategy tool which can assist your organisation by providing a full understanding of the overall structure of your business and subsequently, the ability to map out business and technology change. This can help reduce overall costs, increase predictability and help your business better plan for the future.
Realise Your Business Goals through Technology
Microsoft Enterprise Architecture charts the goals of your organisation, helps you to develop clear tactics so these goals can be realised by your business processes and looks at how these business processes can be better served through technology.
With Microsoft Enterprise Architecture, once your business demands have been outlined they are then met through the creation of initial conceptual views that analyse the structure and the functions of the business, alongside physical implementations of the most appropriate strategic tools.
The information Microsoft Enterprise Architecture supplies can satisfy many needs within an organisation, giving architectural users such as business managers and analysts, system architects and designers access to high-level summary information, detailed data and all levels of reports in between.
Microsoft Enterprise Architecture models are arranged in a way which provides an increasing level of detail about your organisation, including;
• objectives and goals
• processes and organisation
• systems and data
From the information in these models, Microsoft Enterprise Architecture provides a view of the technology opportunities that can provide business benefits. Microsoft Custom Development can then realise these benefits by implementing solutions that modify, extend or integrate with your existing IT estate. Using a full Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) process; designing, building and deploying solutions that help you deliver greater business agility and quality, rapidly and within your budget.
