In a rapidly changing technology environment, organizations face the need to transform their processes and systems to meet emerging business requirements. This digital transformation demands specific expertise and a set of practices to align business focus with technology solutions. Solution architecture belongs to the list of most important practices executed before any tech solution development begins.
Solution architects are therefore needed to evaluate a specific need that a business may have, and then build and integrate information and computer systems that meet that need They also examine the current systems architecture, and work with business and technical staff to recommend solutions that result in more effective systems. They possess a balanced mix of technical and business skills, and are responsible for the design of one or more applications or services within an organization. This can take the form of products or services, and involves integrating the software and hardware that will best meet requirements. Once solution architects are given a problem, they are not only in charge of finding the answers, but of actively leading the technical vision to success. Most solution architects have spent many years in the software development world and have therefore learned dozens of tools designed to help them be more effective and productive.
Their main focus is on the technical decisions being made regarding the solution and how they impact the business outcomes. The rest of the development team will then use the information to implement the solution.
Solution architects focus on:
• How technology can be used to solve a given business problem
• Which framework, platform, or tech-stack can be used to create a solution
• How the application will look, what the modules will be, and how they interact with each other
• How things will scale for the future and how they will be maintained
• Understanding and mitigating the risk in third-party frameworks/platforms
• Finding a solution to a business problem
Solution architects become involved with a project at the time the computer systems analyst is developing requirements. They then remain involved throughout the balance of the project. They organize the development effort, and are often expected to provide motivation and guidance to the entire development team during the systems development life cycle. They are ultimately responsible for the vision that underlies the solution and the execution of that vision into the solution.
Some solution architects may look after the programming, integration, and testing of software systems and associated devices. The process used typically involves selecting the most appropriate technology for a problem, as well as balancing architectural concerns of the project with the concerns of the enterprise.
Solution architects need significant people and process skills. They are often in front of management, trying to explain a complex problem in laymen’s terms. They have to find ways to say the same thing using different words for different types of audiences, and they also need to really understand the business’ processes in order to create a cohesive vision of a usable product.
CERTFICATE OF COMPLETION: Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of a course. This is not an official certification for the product and/or software. Our courses do indicate the appropriate certification exam(s) that the participant can sit. Data Vision Systems does not provide certification or deliver the certification exams. Participants are responsible for arranging and paying for the certification exams on the appropriate certification body.
CANCELLATION POLICY: There is never a fee for cancelling seven business days before a class for any reason. Data Vision Systems reserves the right to cancel any course due to insufficient registration or other extenuating circumstances. Participants will be advised prior to doing so
