Solution Architecture

Great architecture is invisible

The moment problems appear in the architecture marks the moment your capability is being compromised.

We help you:

Leverage legacy technology investments
Appraise cost-benefits across evolving solutions
Incorporate best practices and proven experiences
Align with key business drivers
Eliminate unnecessary risk and unexpected cost

Start with the end in mind

Senior architects apply our exclusive assessment tool to determine a complete picture of your architecture’s maturity and to devise essential steps to move forward. Briefly, we assess…

Business value to align architecture for long-term return on investment
Architecture & design that leverages our experience with hundreds of customers over decades
Security & compliance that ensures best practices are architecturally integrated
People & process reviews to empower team goals across the architecture building process
Maintenance & support to facilitate organization efficiency, operations and integrations
Availability & disaster recovery to reliably meet system service level agreement (SLA) requirements

Apply our six-step process

We translate assessment discoveries into practical, actionable steps that align technological trends, industry best practices and your business goals

Mentor and maintain

Architecture quality and consistency are far from “plug-and-play” across the IT industry. We can mentor your people as well as your systems for invaluable, hands-on support.

We needed a partner to develop a solution. This required a range of resources and the ability to get a major project done in an aggressive timeframe. That’s why we went to Coherent Amy Junge | IT Manager at Christensen Farms

A Practical Guide to Architecting

Like an artist staring at a blank canvas, a politician starting with a clean slate, or a land developer overlooking a new piece of property – the green field that an IT manager faces at the beginning of a new project can be both energizing and scary.
