Helping With Solution and Enterprise Architecture Design

Through the structured approach of designing the roles and responsibilities of each component and performing buy-vs-build analysis.

Problems Companies Face

When They Need Help With Solution and Enterprise Architecture Design?

Not sure how to take a comprehensive view of digital transformation? Are the technical teams from different functions overstepping on each other with substantial duplication among systems? ElevatIQ’s enterprise and solution architecture expertise can help companies when they struggle with these challenges.

No Experience Documenting Architecture

Developers leading digital transformation with limited review of what’s buried inside the code? Documentation non-existent about the architecture? Technical issues taking too long to develop and fix without much visibility into why? Companies seek help from ElevatIQ when they need help documenting the architecture.

Overlapping Boundaries of Different Systems

Current systems all over the place? With no clear process boundaries? Business users jump around different systems when they look for information? Customer service reps taking too long to serve the customers? Companies seek help from ElevatIQ when they need help in reducing the overlap and building a cleaner state of the architecture.

Limited Experience Designing Enterprise Architecture Workflows

No CIO with your team? Initiatives primarily led by the IT team who don’t have enough experience designing workflows across the processes and functional boundaries? Limited experience with the best practices of enterprise architecture? Companies seek help from ElevatIQ when they have limited experience with designing enterprise architecture workflows.

Data Quality Issues Across Systems

Have multiple instances of customers and vendors? Need to spend a significant amount of time creating parts and BOMs? Data quality issues require you to spend a significant amount of time with data cleansing. Companies seek help from ElevatIQ when they need help with data quality issues across systems.

Limited Understanding of Roles and Responsibilities of Different Enterprise Software Components

Not sure how to design the process boundaries between the ERP and CRM systems? Not sure how eCommerce overlaps with an ERP? Not sure about the role of the data layer with an operational one? Companies seek help from ElevatIQ when they have limited experience in defining the roles and responsibilities of different systems.

Majority of Planning Happening Outside of the Systems

Your systems just a transactional repository? Substantial efforts spent in planning and manipulating data outside of the systems? Issues with demand forecasting and supply chain planning. Companies seek help from ElevatIQ when the majority of planning might be happening outside of the systems.

Our Case Studies for

Solution and Enterprise Architecture Design

Our Methodology

for Solution and Enterprise Architecture Design

The process starts with an assessment of the as-is and to-be architecture. It then analyzes the current challenges, such as system overlaps, data quality issues, and process challenges. Through the series of workshops and code reviews, the enterprise architecture is developed that serves as the blueprint for any future development or implementation.

Enterprise Architecture


This phase starts with analyzing the core issues with data quality, system interaction, and process challenges. And then build a hypothetical architecture and different options and their pros and cons.

Detailed Design

The audience of this phase is developers who perform detailed discovery and interface mapping for different integration points and UI components. This phase might also include several POCs that need to be performed to evaluate the facility of the architecture.

Architecture Compliance and Optimization

This is the post-implementation phase, where compliance is monitored by performing code and interface reviews. This phase also monitors several different KPIs and reports to assess if the architectural changes will have their intended effects.

High-Level Design

This is a discovery phase where each of the processes and systems needs to be thought through the lenses of the new architecture. It also identifies any systems or components that need to be replaced.


This is the implementation phase where architectural changes are implemented. The changes could be newer systems. Or they could be data and process changes. A release schedule is planned depending on the complexity of the changes.
