Digital Architecture encompasses services, tools, and products to develop innovative technology solutions to meet the growing digital demands of customers.
Most companies have a traditional technology foundation that overtime, has resulted in complex, interdependent (point-to-point) systems making it difficult to deliver responsive solutions in an efficient and effective manner.
Today, mature organizations want to leverage their investment in legacy systems and data while building re-usable services and APIs that access this information in a secure, reliable manner.
The ability to create services and APIs is made possible by applying service orientation to design, allowing the separation of complex operations into smaller independent logical units that offer well-defined reusable services. A well-governed Service Oriented Architecture provides the foundation on which to build services that can be shared across various applications (web applications, smart phones, call centres), reducing IT development costs and duplication, enabling application agility and standardization.
A Service Oriented Architecture coupled with APIs provides the means for ensuring consistent customer experiences across online channels by facilitating the interaction between channels and complex back-end systems through a lean, flexible, efficient & extensible mediation layer. This is the promise of digital transformation.
Next Pathway provides the consulting services to help companies to quickly modernize their foundational architecture in order to take advantage of the latest trends in technology.
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) together with API Management increases business agility by enabling IT departments to share and reuse services that have known scalability and quality of service characteristics. The success of a SOA implementation depends on its choice of SOA infrastructure topology, and governance best suited to the organization to achieve business flexibility, agility and return on investment.
Our approach to API Management is based on documenting foundational requirements, which are then complemented with technical specifications (both functional and non-functional). The design can then be created based on appropriate client-specific use-cases. The last stage is the implementation along with the establishment of governance practices.
Next Pathway’s Digital Platform is comprised of the following components:
