Design & Blueprinting

Functional & Technical Design, Service Blueprints, Process & Automation Modeling

Service Based Blueprinting provides a Model-Driven Business Architecture approach to capture requirements using facilitated sessions with business users. The result is a prioritization of SOA technology, functions and projects as they align to business requirements. It provides integrated architectures and infrastructure plans.

Service Based Blueprinting concentrates on business drivers and IT needs, uses a structured methodology to align them, and results in a deployable business / IT strategic plan. Our process uses experienced services veterans and balances business value, technical risk and strategic interest resulting in a cohesive, services based integration plan with requirements and a detailed action plan. We utilize a graphical or Model-Driven approach to capture requirements using facilitated sessions – prioritizing SOA technology, functions and projects as they align to business needs. Our service-based blueprinting considers all levels of the solution architecture (Business, Information, Applications and Infrastructure), and considers organization, gaps, risks, and impacts to your corporation.

RCG has extensive background and hands-on services expertise in all types of hardware and software in use in the cloud, on the web, with client/server and even legacy technologies. Our methodologies are assessed by the Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model enterprise wide. RCG writes its Services-Based Blueprinting reports in non-technical business language. Our reports are well articulated and accessible to readers who do not have a technical background.

In conjunction with developers, RCG will expand the high-level design into the components required for construction and integration. Specifications are created using tools appropriate for the solution. Data conversion requirements are specified and a detailed deployment strategy is planned. The design is detailed to the level required to hand off to the construction team. A Technical Design Brief using the technical and business requirements is created. The level of detailed software design could be adapted for the situation where the designer will also develop the code.
