Enterprise Architecture

Every organization has an enterprise architecture (EA) consisting of people, process, and technology. The most significant challenge is that most organizations have an enterprise architecture that evolved over time without looking at the “big picture”, which often leads to significant revenue loss, incompatibility and cost inefficiencies due to duplication of effort. 1ClickSecurity eliminates these liabilities by applying EA methodologies that deliver tangible outcomes and provides clear and direct value to organizations.  Making the right decisions and following System Development Lifecycle workflow is critical to ensuring networks and systems remain reliable enough to meet business needs.  An EA establishes a roadmap to achieve an organization’s mission through optimal performance of its core business processes within an efficient IT environment.  We identify existing IT systems and projects, identify the business needs for the projects, track and oversee project costs and schedules, and select new projects rationally.  We implement the following EA processes that can be applied across all layers of your business:

– Comply with governance frameworks and methodologies; apply industry and government best practices

– Evaluate the sustainability and performance capabilities of existing systems and architecture; perform gap and risk analysis

– Review system/network artifacts (i.e., flow diagrams, design documents)

– Collect and analyze performance metrics

– Deliver technology strategy advice and expertise that align with organizational strategic goals and supports business outcomes

– Evaluate new technologies

– Provide reliable and timely analytics and advice that support sound business decisions

– Perform open-source research to better understand vulnerabilities

– Identify the most probable or highest impact failures that can occur

– Implement strict System Engineering Life Cycle (SELC) practices from project initiation through post-deployment

– Perform the testing and evaluation necessary for successful system design, development implementation, and decommission
