Comprehensive Consultation Leads the Way into the Future of IT

Tradition Meets Modernity – an Overall Goal for a Future-Oriented It System Architecture for Atelier Goldner Schnitt
Atelier Goldner Schnitt communicates its brand values of high quality, perfect fit, variety of sizes, and consultation to clients via all of its media channels. This means an IT system architecture that is oriented towards the future is an absolute necessity for the company to be able to continue communicating with its clients. But how do you assess how this architecture should look exactly?
This is where Arvato Systems stepped in and provided support with determining where there is potential for optimization in line with the fashion best practices model. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were defined to measure and evaluate the future viability and performance of the IT architecture. Arvato Systems used this as a basis to develop a list of criteria to factually evaluate the applications to be replaced and the IT application development plan (IT architecture sketch). The development of basic principles for the non-functional requirements of a flexible and scalable architecture based on reference architectures was also a focus. A fit-gap analysis of these requirements on both a functional and a technical level provided information as to which software solutions would be appropriate. And last but not least, the specialists from Arvato Systems calculated the production and licensing costs as well as the set-up and operating costs for the relevant solutions.
