Solution Architecture

Focusing on the technology so you can focus on your business

Rapidly Changing Technology

Navigator understands the importance of having a carefully planned technical architecture that forms a foundation for building and deploying business solutions and which serves as an enabler for an organization to achieve their overall business goals and strategies. A successful architecture must not only meet the needs of an individual application, but also allow the enterprise’s diverse applications to work harmoniously with each other, its support personnel, its users, and its customers.

Offerings

Application Development Testing and Integration

When application developers are well-versed in technical architecture, great things happen. When designing, building, and testing batch processes, integrations, or even reports, workflows, and other custom code, our experience with architecture can help yield better results more quickly on the trickiest problems.

Enterprise Architecture Strategy and Deployment

Enterprise architecture strategy and deployment encompasses a wide range of services. At a high level, we can perform an assessment of your current architecture, and provide recommendations, along with a roadmap or blueprint for implementation. Or we can take a more focused look, helping you to develop strategies for cloud migration, mobile device support, applications and platforms, integration architecture, or business continuity.

Project Management

Navigators are not only technology experts, but also project management experts. With this combination of skills, we can effectively lead the estimating and program management overall. More than half of our employees hold the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.

System Administration and Support

Even the most robust infrastructure requires some administration. We can provide team members skilled in database administration, server administration (whether Windows, Unix, or Linux), network and storage administration, and application security administration. ERP systems also often require administrators who can support their specific application platforms and middleware.

Pay Down Your Technical Debt In 4 Steps
Pay Down Your Technical Debt In 4 Steps
You have an IT department filled with smart, competent employees. And yet, they have a hard time getting projects done in a timely manner. You try to find out why, and discover that the problem is twofold: They are spending so much time just keeping the lights on — handling routine day-to-day tasks and putting out fires — that they have little time left over for doing project work. In addition, even small changes invariably seem to create new defects, which are time-consuming to track down and fix.

If some or all of the above paragraph seems all too familiar to you, then your organization probably has a problem with technical debt. Read on to learn the four steps for paying down your technical debt.

Delivering Value

More than 30 percent of software projects are cancelled before they are completed. Of completed projects, most deliver fewer features and less business value than promised. Navigator provides the strong business analysis needed to ensure that major investments provide expected value to the organization and critical stakeholders.
