Services: Architecture and Technology Support

A CONCISE AND CONSISTENT VISION IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF IT ARCHITECTURES AND THE SELECTION OF TECHNOLOGIES, VENDORS AND PRODUCTS.

This area of KuppingerCole Analysts Advisory Services falls into two separate, but closely related parts: Architecture Design and Vendor Selection & Choice of Tools.

KuppingerCole pursues a clear and stringent vision for the development of IT architectures and technology selection: the actual product decisions are at the end of a clearly defined process. The starting points are the documentation and recording of the requirements and framework conditions that are relevant for the provision of the services achieved. On this basis, exemplary usage scenarios are defined that describe the system to be implemented as comprehensively as possible. In accordance with established modelling methods, capabilities & building blocks are derived, which are subsequently used in the actual composition of the architecture blueprint.

At that point, capabilities and architectural blocks are mapped to potential IT systems. Thus, a clear dividing line between architecture design and system selection can be drawn.
