Auxilium Technology Group is well versed in Enterprise Architecture (EA) modeling and Planning (EAP). We have been providing EAP support to public and private sector organizations using a variety of frameworks including TOGAF, DoDAF, FEAF and Zachman since 1998. Business, information, service, software and technology architectures have been modeled using a variety of frameworks including TOGAF, DoDAF, FEAF and Zachman. A unique feature our approach is the traceability between these models. Business architecture models reference information and data models, service and software architecture models trace to business architecture models and are deployed to technology models. The end result is a unified understanding of the business supporting impact analysis and analysis of alternatives to support effective business decisioning.
Services include enterprise architecture modeling and planning at all levels: Business, Data, System, and Technology. See below for more details.
Either as part of a comprehensive Enterprise Architecture initiative or as a separate business-focused program, Auxilium Technology Group has developed both high level and detailed business models to help public and private sector organizations better understand the inner working of their business. Our methodology looks at the organizational vision, mission, goals, and objectives in the context of the economic and regulatory environment to analyze market alignment. We then look at organizational structure, capabilities, functions and activities, policies, and rules that are intended to support the business drivers for optimization opportunities. We use a model-driven, standards based approach in collaboration with key stakeholders to capture as-is and to-be models of the business and to better plan a practical transition between the two.
Services include business modeling and simulation, process reengineering, and business architecture training.
Information forms the basis upon which most organizations operate. Auxilium Technology Group approaches the design of information architecture by first understanding an organizations needs at a conceptual, technology neutral level. These concept models provide a foundation on which to create detailed logical and physical designs including those required for optimal information sharing with partner organizations. These models are linked to other business, software and technology architecture models using Model Driven Architecture tools and techniques.
Services include conceptual data modeling and logical and physical data design.
As most large organizations are finding, agile methodologies by themselves don't work in the large. Complex interdependencies between systems require an architectural framework to ensure a cohesive infrastructure. We follow a scaled agile approach to ensure cohesive system support that balances COTS utilization and custom development - COTS for commodity functions and custom development for business differentiation and innovation.
Service oriented architecture (SOA) has gone through the hype cycle and fallen out of favor with many organizations that want to stay on the cutting edge. At ATG we find that it's an essential component of an overall approach. We look analyze service needs at all levels: business, software, and platform infrastructure. This approach allows us to decouple consumers from the providers to improve agility at all levels. We support definition of both large-grained services approach as well as a microservices approach depending on the maturity of the client organization.
Services include service portfolio planning, service and system specification, SOA maturity assessments, logical and physical system design, data design, message design, and systems development.
The technology architecture provides the underpinning for business automation. While this architecture is critical to the success of the business, maintaining a loose coupling to the "technology du jour" is key to business agility. SaaS, PaaS, DaaS, and IaaS are key approaches that enable an organization to outsource as much or as little of their technology infrastructure as needed in order to stay focused on their business.
Services include technology infrastructure modeling and planning.
