In today’s information driven economy, IT strategy has vaulted to the forefront of critical issues faced by top management. Information technology’s potential for value creation or destruction is enormous, and Ivory Systems understands this. Ivory’s Enterprise Architecture services are the foundation of its philosophy of delivering real business results for its clients through the application of technology. The industrial-strength architectural solutions created by Ivory’s seasoned consultants adhere to three guiding principals: They are
Business requirements driven
An effective enterprise architecture strategy requires an understanding of business requirements and processes in addition to expertise in the relevant technologies. Thus the starting point for each project is a thorough understanding of business objectives, a process that is greatly helped and accelerated by Ivory’s existing industry-specific know-how.
Robust and adaptive
As IT becomes an ever more strategic factor for success in every industry, a secure and reliable IT environment becomes that much more critical. Yet, it is also clear from the ever-accelerating pace of change in today’s competitive business world that any enterprise architecture must be able to adapt quickly to new business and technological realities. Ivory’s extensive experience allows it to successfully resolve the inherent tension between robustness (security, reliability) and adaptability (openness, scalability, flexibility) of design in arriving at a balanced enterprise architecture.
Leveraging existing technology investments
Coupling grand visions with untried (in the real world) technologies is a recipe for highly visible failed IT projects. Ivory takes the opposite tact with an incremental approach that is designed to minimize project risk and maximize project returns by leveraging existing technology investments. One of Ivory’s strong distinguishing characteristics is the unmatched expertise of its consultants in integrating backwards with legacy technology, including many mainframe-based applications
