Your technology stack can be a complex beast, but when integrated effectively, the data it holds can be incredibly powerful. Tapping this potential takes expertise in all elements of the stack, from traditional database design and cloud to distributed processing and visualisation. We know that without a team possessing these broad skills who can work as an integrated whole, challenges arise.
- Do you know what you want from your current architecture but lack the capacity or capability to realise it?
- Are you unsure of the skills-mix your team needs to deliver what you envisage?
- Do you have a high-level architecture design but lack understanding of the detail underpinning it?
- Is your current in-house data engineering failing to deliver at the quality and pace you demand?
- Are you simply looking for a modern solution to best exploit your data?
We can fill all these gaps in your team’s knowledge. Led by experts with a comprehensive understanding of the latest toolsets and how they can be integrated with your existing infrastructure, our Data-led Architecture Engineering expertise delivers game-changing solutions for the most demanding businesses.
What our Data-led Architecture Engineering process looks at
Depending on the scale and specific requirements of your architecture, we follow a proven 6-12 week programme to deliver a full technology stack architecture that maximises the potential in your data. We cover the following areas:
- On-time, on-quality, on-cost delivery of your bespoke data architecture through incremental build, which allows for regular review and iteration during the process
- The transfer of knowledge to your team, including upskilling where required to ensure they can continue to leverage the full potential of new cloud-based tools moving forward
- Setting out architecture assurance to provide a level of comfort during the early stages of deployment
- Understanding the level of architecture support you require. This can range from a fully managed service to complete business handover, whatever works best for you
The features of our approach
- Progressive engineering of your data in a way that quickly demonstrates value and builds confidence across your business.
- We work with you to iteratively define what’s needed and build rapid prototypes for testing.
- Our work is built and delivered by experts who know the technology, talk the language and understand how large complex organisations operate to ensure successful deployment.
- We have full technology stack capability, which means we’re as comfortable working with existing enterprise systems as we are with the latest cloud-based tools.
- We‘re technology-stack agnostic, so we’re free to take an objective view without feeling the need to sell a specific vendor or ‘silver bullet’
- Our agile mindset helps us tackle ambiguity in the scope and move forward in a way where we shape the direction together. This flexibility also helps us work with agile budgets.
- We’re not a traditional IT house. We’re small and agile and don’t align ourselves with the normal ‘dev’ pipeline
The benefits to your business
Our approach is low risk to you. The data-led architecture we deliver is built incrementally to ensure it meets the evolving needs of your business and builds confidence as you go. This also means there’s no huge upfront capital expenditure, as can be the case with other solutions.
Our experience gives you peace of mind – we’ve been delivering projects like this for 35 years. We know how to navigate large complex organisations to successfully embed transformational architecture solutions across people, process and governance.
We can do the same for you.
