E-SPIN being active in being engaged, participate and deliver Solution Architecture (SA) work spread across various core domain of solution the company focus on.
Solution architecture is a practice of defining and describing an architecture of a system delivered in context of a specific solution and as such it may encompass description of an entire system or only its specific parts, depend on the nature of engage scope of services. SA typically applies to a single project or project release, assisting in the translation of requirements into a solution vision, high-level business and/or IT system specifications, and a portfolio of implementation tasks. The SA process typically involves selecting the most appropriate technology for the problem and focuses on converting requirements into the architecture and design that ultimately constitute the blueprint or masterplan for the solution. SA is an architectural description of a specific solution. SAs combine guidance from different enterprise architecture viewpoints (business, information and technical), as well as from the enterprise solution architecture (ESA). In that process, the E-SPIN solution architect usually relies on design patterns from their previous engagements, published reference architectures, and on guidance from enterprise architecture. In their efforts, solution architects balance architectural concerns of the projects with the concerns of the enterprise. To ensure that the SA aligns with the roadmaps established by the Enterprise Architecture (EA), and that it adheres to the enterprise architecture principles. Solution architecture work deliver for large organizations often act as the bridge between Enterprise Architecture and Applications Architecture (AA).
E-SPIN enterprise architecture deliverables are usually more abstract than a solution architecture, but not always. The main distinction between the two lies in their different goals. The enterprise architecture is primarily employed by Client and focus to design, plan, and govern strategic and cross-organisational rationalisation or optimisation of an enterprise’s services, processes, or components. The solution architecture work primarily focus to helps programme and project management in the design, planning, and governance of projects of any kind. A solution architecture work may have a reporting line to an enterprise architecture team, but the influence the enterprise architecture team has on solution architecture team depends on an organisation’s policies and management structure. So, the extent to which a solution architecture work derives from an enterprise architecture road maps vary from 0 to 100 percent.
The solution architecture can starts and stops depends on the funding model for the process of solution identification and delivery. For example, an enterprise client may employ us for a solution architecture on a feasibility study, or to prepare a solution vision or solution outline for an invitation to tender. A channel partner may employ us for a solution architecture at bid time, before any implementation project is costed or resourced. Both may employ us for a solution architecture to govern an implementation project, or play a leading role within it.
Typical engagement range from solution architecture topics and activities, include take place during solution ideation, solution design, and solution implementation. During ideation, solution architecture establishes the complete business context for the solution and defines the vision and requirements for the solution. During design, solution architecture elaborates potential options, which may include RFIs, RFPs or prototype development. It selects the most optimal option and develops the roadmap for the selected solution. During implementation, solution architecture communicates the architecture to the stakeholders, and guides the implementation team.
Relationship with Enterprise Architecture
Relationship with Enterprise Architecture Solution architecture includes business architecture, information architecture, application architecture, and technology architecture operating at a tactical level and focusing on the scope and span of a selected business problem. In contrast, enterprise architecture, which also includes aforementioned four types of architecture, operates at the strategic level and its scope and span is the enterprise rather than a specific business problem. Consequently, enterprise architecture provides strategic direction and guidance to solution architecture.
- Vendor/Technology Neutral. For solution architecture service subscriber, our focus is on architecturing solution and providing services related to it. We are open to work with any Client for end user/business partner or in any technical environment.
- Strategic alliances. E-SPIN has strategic partnerships with all the leading technology manufactures we have develop long solution architecture work based on it. These alliances help us serving our clients with multiple choices and reduced cost, since we know what work in the context and scenario. Apart from these strategic alliances, we have global tie ups with all leading OEMs.
- Global Deployment Capabilities. E-SPIN has a direct and indirect presence in multiple region, countries and a robust partner eco system cover the globe which help our clients with on time and efficient deployment of products.
- Flexible pricing models. We offer our clients flexible and transparent pricing options which help them reducing their upfront cost and convert that into an operational expenditure.
Please feel free to contact E-SPIN for your inquiry and requirement, so we can assist you on the exact requirement in the packaged solutions that you may required for your operation or project needs.
