Services Performed: Architecture Analysis, Technical Strategy
The goal of this assessment was to give the client an in-depth, hands-on look at strategies for separating domains; automating build, test and release pipelines; monitor and fix problems in a distributed system; delivering business value from distributed data; and key concepts/technologies that facilitate a highly maintainable, scalable system of systems.
This was an initial consultation focused on creating a strategic plan to create a deliverables road map for a Microsoft Azure and Service Fabric proof-of-concept, no development was performed.
The time was used as a forum to ask both low and high level technical/business/process questions of the Keyhole principal architect. In this assessment a KHS principal architect reviewed the existing and to-be automated solutions that exist in the client environment.The Keyhole principal architect was onsite to meet with client staff to gather needs analysis and review existing technology and SDLC pipelines.
An Azure and Service Fabric proof-of-concept technical strategy and roadmap was delivered. The proof-of-concept roadmap was in a menu format with various patterns, practices, and technology offerings. The menu included estimations of hours required for each pattern or component. The estimated hours for each item ranged from low to high so as to make prioritization and budgeting easy.
