Sophisticated architectures for your optimal IT solution

Depending on the task and project phase, different architectures are in focus for a project. For example, the conceptual architecture developed in the analysis phase focuses on the business. What business objects are there? How do they relate to each other and what cardinalities exist? Only then can the functional requirements be formulated clearly.

The other architectures are essentially determined by the non-functional requirements: The design architecture defines design patterns for the topology of the solution. Based on this, the technologies to be used are determined in the implementation architecture. The runtime architecture defines the operational environment (server, cloud, etc.), its design and the distribution of the components on it.

The result is future-proof, component-oriented IT solutions that are characterized by properties such as distributability, scalability, fail-safety, expandability and interoperability with open interfaces.

We take a holistic view of your IT system landscape and make it fit for the future

IT structures that have grown over the years present many companies with major challenges: The expandability and maintainability of these systems quickly reach their limits. Often, the systems, also known as legacy software, lack the flexibility to expand them in a future-proof manner and to ensure the required reliability. However, a comprehensive renewal of the entire IT landscape is often not an option for economic and technical reasons. Instead, new systems must be able to be integrated into the existing IT landscape and provide a high degree of flexibility at the various levels. To achieve this flexibility, we consider a number of criteria for the architecture of an IT solution.

Despite increasingly powerful hardware, we pay attention to high resource efficiency during development in order to make optimum use of RAM, CPU and network components. Efficient algorithms for searching, sorting, linking and enriching information also contribute to this. Our developers therefore also focus their attention on the good interaction of the algorithms and the appropriate representation of the data structure. This is the only way to obtain efficient algorithms that can cope with future tasks. It is worth the effort, because a good algorithmic idea and its efficient implementation are usually more rewarding than pure computing power. Efficient algorithms form a unit together with the suitable data structure.

System level architecture

When developing our IT solutions, we make sure that components are modular and optimized for reusability. At the same time, we keep an eye on system performance and attach importance to using open interfaces if there are no business or technical requirements to the contrary. In this way, our systems remain flexibly expandable and meet current requirements for scalability and distributability.

Architecture at process level

At the process level, we use proven design patterns whenever it makes sense for the respective use case. This saves time and costs in development and in maintenance and further development, because our developers can use the existing solution approaches for sub-processes that have already been solved frequently. Stability and error handling also benefit from the use of proven design patterns. For deployment, we always check which settings should be flexibly configurable so that we can adapt the necessary processes for you to cover your requirements in the best possible way.

Architecture at IT infrastructure level

Hardly any IT solution covers the complex requirements in full or can be designed and deployed "on the greenfield". Normally, the new solution must be able to be integrated into the already existing system landscape and connect your existing and proven systems. Especially for these cases, we consider the possible distribution and scalability of our systems during the system design. We also include partial or complete operation in the cloud in our considerations for a suitable architecture design. Whether this involves a cloud hosted by you or an external cloud service provider should be used, you decide according to your needs.
