Architecture ConsultingAs the complexities of Business & Systems are increasing (in terms of structural systems, services, and technologies), architecture is becoming very critical for enterprise survival as well as growth. Our consulting services can help you to manage enterprise IT systems ensuring better functionality & sustainability

Team Enhancement

Today companies and their IT department have to respond to the continuous changes in the stipulated time frame otherwise there is a risk being loosing their current competitive edge. In addition to the changes in the economy and the constantly changing technology needs, initiatives using only internal staff often fall short of meeting the aggressive goals set by the company. iCMG can help.

Architecture Governance for Offshored Projects

One of the key challenge is how to justify ROI on Panel Discussionarchitecture investment. In fact, most of architects are currently burning their mid night oil to churn out excel sheets and power points to sell the idea of architecture benefits to their respective managements with little or no success.

The real challenge with architecture adoption is that the IT people are recommending it. Unfortunately, anything recommended by "IT people" or "techie" is taken with pinch of salt.

What are the typical IT architecture related investments?
Some of the key areas of investment would include training, tools, creating architecture artifacts, refining process, repository, management & governance, metrics & compliance. Additional investments are required for transformations between views of the enterprise architecture, the solution architecture and the technical architecture of the system ensuring traceability of architecture constraints and requirements to implementations.

 
Who should fund it?
The bigger issue is who will be more eager to fund an architecture initiative? Is CEO or CFO? While the tenure of a CEO is around 3-4 years, the typical tenure of a CFO is around 7 years or more. Does it mean that CFO is more likely to appreciate the value of architecture? But, may be it's the CEO who will feel the pain of lack of business and IT alignment and ask for setting the architecture team?
 
How we can help?

We can help you in one or more of the following activties:

Measure architecture ROI on project basis ensuring applicability on a long term, multiple projects, portfolio basis.
Enable CFOs to mitigate risk in short term or long term on IT investments
Enables CEOs to use architecture centric IT initiatives as strategic tool for market competitiveness?
Identify tangible and intangible benefits of architecture (short term, mid & long term basis)
Measure architecture benefits such as: Modifiability, Risk Mitigation, Avoiding Technology Obsolescence
Estimate the investments on series of "current", "intermediate" and "target" reference architectures
Calculate
• If the current architecture is meaningful and adding value to the   organization?
• How might architecture be modified so that it adds more value to the    organization?
• Readiness of the architecture to support what organization wants to   accomplish in the future?
