Architecture

Architecture can be valuable for any organization that needs to design & implement effective solutions to align with their business goals.

What is an architecture?

An architecture provides a blueprint or plan for building a system that will solve a particular problem or achieve a specific goal. It defines the components and their connections, as well as the overall structure and design.

Architecture focuses on the comprehensive view of the solution, and how it aligns with the broader context of the business. The architecture can incorporate a wide range of technologies and methods depending on the specific needs of the solution.

When it comes to architecture, we have a strong preference for all things MACH. The MACH acronym stands for Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless. In a MACH architecture everything needs to be pluggable, replaceable and scalable.

It gives your company the freedom to choose the best tools in the market while maintaining a structure that makes it easy to add, replace or remove tools as needed.

Some specific examples of organizations that may find an architecture valuable include:

  • Companies with complex business processes:  the architecture can help organizations design systems that support their processes in an efficient and effective way.
  • Companies that need to integrate with external systems:  the architecture can help organizations design systems that can effectively integrate with external systems and data sources.
  • Companies that need to scale their systems: the architecture can help organizations design systems that can scale up or down as needed, to continue meeting changing business demands.

Overall, an architecture can be valuable for any organization that needs to design and implement effective solutions to align with their business goals and objectives.

Our approach for designing an architecture

The first step in building an architecture is to define the problem or opportunity that the architecture will address.

Next we determine the objectives of the solution, which will be the base to design the architecture. This includes creating diagrams and models to represent the components and relationships within the solution.

Once the architecture is designed, it is important to validate that it meets the needs of the organization. This involves testing the architecture with stakeholders and making the necessary adjustments.

After everything has been validated and built, it is important to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of the organization. This may involve making updates or changes to the architecture over time.
