Architecture, just as it does with your house or office, plays a big part in how usable your software solution is right now, how it will cope with more (or less) people using it, and how easy it is to modify if required.
This is particularly important if you want to take advantage of one of The Cloud’s main benefits – scalability. In simple terms, you get much better performance by having a lot of small things all working on the problem at the same time, than you do by taking a single thing and making it perform faster. The latter approach is the traditional architecture, where to get better performance by your software, the single computer it ran on was made faster (more memory, faster CPU etc.).
The modern cloud-based solution to this problem is based on an approach that promotes splitting up a task so small computing units can process many of them in parallel, and these computed units can be easily created, started, and then stopped again as required.
To be able to do this effectively, you need the right software Solution Architecture, and that is where CIBIS can bring decades of combined experience designing and architecting software systems and solutions in a diverse range of industries and working with both proprietary and open source systems to help you get it right the first time.
Of course, we can also help you “fix” designs that may not be performing to expectations too!
Whether you have a new software solution or an existing one, and regardless of whether you need to architect for performance, security, scalability or interoperability, let CIBIS be your design and solution architecture partner.
