Solutions architecture

Design and deploy the right solution to work faster, smarter, safer and more cost-effectively

We’ll help you identify and deploy the right solution to improve project delivery or organisational performance whether that’s implementing new technology or embedding new processes within your organisation.

Where our enterprise architects can help you take a "50,000-foot view" of a business or project, our solutions architects will zone in on the detailed solution and implementation. They will work with you to understand your goals and then find a cost-effective technical solution to achieve them. Our team includes embedded systems, cloud-based solutions, security, networks and operational technology experts. They work closely with engineering colleagues or external suppliers to identify the most appropriate technologies or processes to deliver performance or safety improvements and then test, refine and deploy them.

Together with our infrastructure architects, they’ll ensure the new technologies work seamlessly with each other and integrate with your existing technical infrastructure. They’ll also make sure the solutions that are implemented meet industry requirements and support your organisation’s business strategy for scaling, data security, or supporting a drive towards mobile integration.
