ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN

Our architects can document or design a hardware or system architecture that includes a conceptual model with definitions of the structure, behavior of data, and views of the system. A system architecture can provide a plan from which products can be procured, systems can be developed and integration points can be mapped to ensure appropriate flow of data. Systems design is the process of defining and developing systems to satisfy specified requirements of the user and involving experts to assist with the detailed definition upfront is critical to the success of any project. According to The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is responsible for the development of new technologies for use by the military; “Product definition during the first 15% of its lifecycle determines 85% of all downstream lifecycle costs.”
