What is our Architecture-as-a-Service?
We offer various Architecture Services that all medium to large Architecture practices might need. We have separated out things that can be done remotely from the things that people need to do face-to-face, and only mainly offer the remote services. This is Architecture-as-a-Service.
Reasons it makes sense
Architecture-as-a-Service could be used in the following contexts for any one of these 12 good reasons:
1. Architects are too busy
Architects too busy to create models and document your architecture sufficiently.
2. Not always experts in Visual Modelling
Typically, Architects are not always experts in visual modelling, we offer Modelling-as-a-Service.
3. Third Party health check
You want to have your enterprise architecture health checked by a 3rd party who does Enterprise Architecture all the time.
4. You want your Architects mentored in Modelling
You want your Architects mentored in Visual modeling while doing actual work.
5. Third party workshop facilitation
Third party elicited workshops to uncover valuable Architectural information and have a third party’s perspective.
6. Cloud Based Architecture Tools
We offer cloud based SaaS Enterprise Architecture tools, if you need a quick solution.
7. Auditers due – quick fix the Architecture!
The Auditors are due and you need your Architecture accurate for the audit / health check.
8. Workload Peak
You need to catch-up on Architecture work during a workload peak.
9. Tidy up our Architecture
Your Architecture needs tidying up; written by technical people, often not ideal for the business people or maintenance & support.
10. Avoid justifying extra head-count
Avoid justifying extra in-house headcount, especially for a short term engagement. An off balance sheet expense.
11. Remote working saves money
We work remotely (out of your office) so no Laptops, Desks and Phones to organise saving time and money. Far lower costs than for in-house staff.
12. Get Valuable Agile content into Repository
In an Agile world the models are white-boarded but often not captured into a tool for documentation.
