We have been in the Solution/Enterprise Architect business for over 15 years and have recognised the inefficiency inherent in building ICT Architectural teams in-house. Additionally, most Solution Architects take a completely ‘theoretical’ view of architecture practices rather than a real-world, delivery focus. Suffice to say our Architects are outcomes focused with theory supporting successful practical delivery.

From on-premise infrastructure to cloud, off-the-shelf to full software development, our SA’s have the experience and intellectual property to deliver documented design and implementation strategies to ensure known outcomes can be achieved.

Pick a model to suit your immediate requirements, we can scale service delivery onsite or remotely all with flexibility to ramp up/down any time as your projects move through various phases of design and implementation.

With Solution Architects across the country, we can assist get new projects off the ground or step in to troubled projects to get them back on track. One thing you can count on is our ability to identify potential issues and provide options to get the job done!
