Providing significant business value to our customers through a highly flexible and specialised offering.

ARCHITECTURE AS A SERVICE

“We have been working with On Device Solutions on several architecture-related engagements to assist in the SAP technology areas, primarily focussing on SAP S/4HANA and SAP Solution Manager. Unlike the traditional sourcing and delivery approaches, On Device Solutions adopted a flexible delivery model where assignments demanded faster turnaround and access to resource pool with next gen technical knowledge. This helped us achieve consistent delivery of high-quality work in an agile fashion. We look forward to continuing this relationship and working with them further.”

WHAT IS SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE?


The word “Architecture” means different things to everyone. One of the most commonly known definitions comes from Microsoft.
 
“Software application architecture is the process of defining a structured solution that meets all of the technical and operational requirements, while optimising common quality attributes such as performancesecurity, and manageability. It involves a series of decisions based on a wide range of factors, and each of these decisions can have a considerable impact on the quality, performance, maintainability, and overall success of the application.”
 
Software architecture is complex and critically depends on timely decisions taken based on multiple factors and requiring multiple skill sets.
 
Most organisations would agree that maintaining a dedicated architectural team, can help them maintain a highly scalable IT estate which can be easily supported and introduce continuous improvements and innovations without disrupting current IT operations. However, IT architecture comprises of several different disciplines.
