IT INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT

IT Infrastructure Development starts with establishing a Technology Foundation that sets the focus for the selection and use of technologies and products.  From this focus technical decisions can be made as to the particular approaches to be used to solve a particular problem whether business or technical.

Within the context of a IT infrastructure development it is important to identify the various themes such as Enterprise Application Integration, eCommerce, Electronic Service Delivery etc.  These themes will help to define the cornerstone of the IT infrastructure.  Most organisations are pursuing more than one theme.

An IT infrastructure should have a set of defined qualities that must be supported as well as any guiding principles that have to be adopted. 

The design phase requires a “drill down” of an organisation's Technology Architecture, which is essentially at a generic or abstract level. This “drill down” involves selecting specific frameworks and models and defining each of the underlying components.  At this level, components are identified, defined and interactions with other components modelled. 

Undertaking a IT infrastructure pilot is considered optional and involves the piloting of specific technology components.  Whilst piloting in the past has been common practice, it is important to ensure that we are simply not “reinventing the wheel”.  There should be clear circumstances to justify a pilot and these should be based on risk minimisation such as piloting a new technology. In most cases what needs to be piloted has already been undertaken by other organisations and the results and outcomes are public domain. 

Our IT Infrastructure Development services assists organisations in implementing their technology components.  This may entail simple implementation of products (such as middleware, business process management systems, etc) or development of technology components. We recommend that this type of activity should be undertaken using an iterative approach and infrastructure and components should be linked to the implementation of specific projects.
