IT Architecture Services

Delivering IT architecture to support your business processes.

Get in touch

IT Architecture is the design of information technology at the structural level. In short, like an architect designs buildings, an IT architect designs your computer systems.

IT architecture is a strategic and comprehensive model for how IT infrastructure will be used across a business to help meet its goals, and it is the primary foundation for qualities such as scalability, performance, modifiability, security and cost reduction.

IT architecture provides a framework upon which to build new systems. It is a series of principles, guidelines or rules used by a business to direct the process of acquiring, building, modifying and interfacing IT resources throughout the organisation. These resources can include equipment, software, communications, development methodologies, modelling tools and organisational structures.

Ultimately, IT architecture services give the right technical solutions to ensure your success – with minimal disruption.

How Lumina can help

Our IT architects possess technical skills in the planning, architecture and implementation of enterprise-class IT solutions and services. They have a strong business and IT background that enables them to build the architecture, and technology strategy required for hardware and networks or any IT solution. They will ensure that the underlying IT architecture delivers the capabilities required to address current and future business needs.

Lumina Technologies will manage and develop a complete IT architecture and will work with you to implement an integrated IT solution, supporting you throughout all phases of IT architecture design and system integration deployment.

The detailed information we gather from our initial consultation with you will enable us to design an IT Architecture that is bespoke to your needs. We will use this framework to build your system on the right platforms and ensure the most appropriate technical solutions are in place, including performance and storage requirements.

Working within your budget

In order to ensure the work stays within your budget, our IT Architects are key. They will develop the most appropriate Reference Architectures that will support not only current platforms, but also those in development.

The technical specifications of our solutions are critical to ensuring that we stay within budget and within the scope of your project. We will find the right balance – ensuring that your systems have sufficient growth capability while not over-committing to unnecessary capacity.

Keeping up to date

IT development can be fast moving. In order to deliver the most appropriate technology for your requirements, we have developed close working relationships with our partner vendors, ensuring we are always up to date with their current and upcoming product ranges.

Typically an IT architecture framework is divided into four domains: business architecture, data architecture, applications architecture and technology architecture.
