Architecture and Engineering

Rapidiant transforms strategic business plans and their business case requirements into architectural frameworks that describes the top-level business functionality structure and identifies the process components for enabling enterprise digital transformation.

This is accomplished through Rapidiant’s architectural design of the business case “use case scenarios” and engineering of the use case scenarios into workflow “use case diagrams” for system designs.  These designs act as preliminary “blueprints’ from which information system frameworks can be developed into a collection of hardware and software components along with their system integration interfaces to other supporting business information and data computing systems. These frameworks are established for examining the hardware and software requirements and engineering models for providing implementation details. Rapidiant uses these details to specify the components of the systems along with their inputs, outputs, functions, constraints, and resource interaction between them. Rapidiant architectural designs will allow our clients to define, develop, and provide the following engineering requirements:

  1. To define an abstraction level where system designers can specify the functionality and performance behavior for the enabling business information systems
  2. To act as a guideline for enhancing the system by describing the features of the system that can be easily modified without affecting system integrity
  3. To evaluate all top level designs against industry trends and best practices
  4. To develop and document our top level designs for the external and internal interfaces to other supporting business information and data computing systems
  5. To develop preliminary versions of user documentation
  6. To define and document preliminary test requirements and strategies along with the schedule for systems integration
  7. To define the sources for the architectural design
  8. To define and document the software, middleware, operating system, and hardware components regarding the business application domains for developing the enabling business information systems
  9. To define and document the business system’s processes into work and data flow diagrams
  10. To define reliability and availability for the architectural components and its design based on architectural patterns, models, and styles

Rapidiant’s architectural and engineering designs are crucial in importance during which the essential requirements for reliability, availability, cost, schedule, and performance are dealt with. This task can be cumbersome when the system engineering paradigm is evolving from monolithic, stand-alone, built-from-scratch systems to componentized, evolvable, standards-based, and product line-oriented systems. As such, Rapidiant avoids these pitfalls and problems by our architectural and engineering designers by adopting and implementing strategies such as reusability, componentization, virtual-based platforms, and standards-based practices. This architectural design and engineering strategy allows us to present our frameworks to our client’s system owners, user representatives, stakeholders, program sponsors, and governance committees for buy-in in order to minimize the risks and errors.
