If all the pieces of a project are together and it still feels like something important is missing, chances are that something is a Solution Architect.
The discipline of translating the various components of a project into business value is called Solution Architecture. It’s a unique area of expertise, and not something normally performed by software developers, project managers, business analysts, or any other members of a project team.
Solution Architects are responsible for both the solution design and the process used to create it. To perform well, they must have an understanding of business drivers, data structures, application capabilities, usability requirements, and technical constraints. Above all, they must excel at facilitating collaboration and consensus among stakeholders.
Projects that are managed by the Contelligence Group have a strong emphasis on Solution Architecture. We are also available to provide Solution Architecture as a Technical Advisory Service for both end-users and vendors.
