Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture

CORE-CSI Enterprise Architecture (EA) support is built on best practices and industry Standards such as: Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA), and DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF). Our Architects specialize in practically employing these frameworks at the project level while bringing in best practices for the project, portfolio development, and IT domains including but not limited to: COBIT governance framework, Project Managed Insatiate (PMI) and technical frameworks such as Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) and Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL).
We help our customer select and integrate scalable and user friendly solutions based on requirements and needs definition, schedule and budget constraints, at the approved security levels.   Our independent and trusted architects work with our customers to gather and review requirements, in details, access innovate, cost effective and scalable Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS), Government Off-the-Shelf (GOTS) or Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) against requirements prior to selection of a particular tool.  We build relationships with a variety of vendors to explore all technical options and provide non-biased, agnostic, and innovative solutions. Our enterprise architects bring a wealth of experience and proven success across the following EA disciplines:

  • Analysis: Work with our customers to prepare and initiate required to prepare to meet the business directives for a new enterprise architecture, including the definition of an Organization-Specific Architecture Framework and the definition of principles.
  • Develop Architecture Vision: Help our customers define and identify dependences and stakeholders. We assist with creating the architecture vision (virtualization, cloud technology, private/public cloud, on-demand computing, standards and architectures, strategic planning, new technologies, and roadmaps) and gain acceptance.
  • Develop Domain Specific Architecture: Customize and develop areas of support specific capabilities maturity (review and summarization of business strategy, core services, organization objectives and processes), Data (Relational and non-relational databases) specific architecture, Application Architecture (COTS, GOTS, and FOSS), and Technology (hardware, software, storage common operating environment, information security, and networking).
  • Provide Assessment, Opportunities and Solutions: Conduct initial implementation planning and the identification of delivery vehicles for the architecture defined in previous phases.
  • Migration and Risk Planning: Address the formulation of a set of detailed sequences for transition architectures with supporting Implementation and Migration Plan.
  • Implementation Governance: Provide tailored oversight of the implementation of architecture and project tasks.
  • Change Management: Establish and enhance the Change Management to accommodate transitional and to-be architectures.
  • Requirements Management- Create, validate, and enhance business requirements and develop requirements repository that is based on solutions that are mapped to test cases and account for project dependencies.
  • Knowledge Management: Develop, integrate, or enhance knowledge management platform to effectively use organizational knowledge enabling multi-disciplinary approach to capture organization knowledge and lessons learned.
  • Enterprise Continuum: Develop Governance Model for effective deployment of Project / Program Life Cycle Management.
