Architecture Competency Icon


Alacrity’s approach to Architecture is a collection of models that describe the components of a business, their supporting application components and data, and the platforms on which these are deployed. When architecture models are appropriate, clear and accurate, they enable better decision-making and better quality systems.

Architecture models are useful for understanding the current landscape and thus being able to manage it better, and for visualizing and planning future landscapes. These models describe aspects of structure, behaviour and system quality. System quality includes security, performance, and reliability / availability. Best practice architecture patterns point the way to providing systems with these qualities.
