IT-Landscaping

Pragmatic approach to quickly create transparency in application landscapes.

IT is the backbone of your business

Transformation projects and other large IT projects with interfaces and dependencies between a multitude of application systems require a structured analysis of the current enterprise architecture in advance.

The existing information about the state of the IT infrastructure is often outdated or fragmented. The use of recognised architecture frameworks such as TOGAF® usually fails due to the high time required for implementation – because an adequate lead time is not always planned for such projects.

Challenges in IT optimisation

IT landscaping is the basis for strategic and operational decisions by (IT) management. By analysing the existing application landscape, resilient architecture decisions with clearly named benefits for the core business processes can be achieved within a few weeks, and problem areas and optimisation needs can be efficiently and verifiably uncovered.

Do you suspect redundant interfaces and a heterogeneity that has developed over time is causing complexity, high effort and costs in your application landscape? Are the resources required for the operation and further development of the application landscape constantly increasing? Would you like to introduce a new CRM system, support business processes with new technologies or carry out fundamental optimisation projects? Our pragmatic, goal-oriented approach can support you on this path and bring you to your goal.

What ENGINEERING offers

With IT Landscaping, we offer you a consulting approach based on the principles of TOGAF®, our proven architecture management and project management expertise and our profound experience in the field of enterprise architecture. Our process includes scoping, architecture analysis, application landscape assessment and development of a catalogue of measures – together with the business and IT.

As result types you receive:

  • reliable information of your application landscape (including technologies used),
  • detailed architecture analyses (dependency, coverage, heterogeneity, interfaces, costs, benefits),
  • Catalogue of measures based on the desired objective (e.g. reduction of heterogeneity, system replacement, cost reduction, etc.),
  • Architecture roadmap.

In addition, we can support you with our approach in the following measures, among others:

  • Reduce the effort required to operate and expand/streamline the application landscape,
  • Identification of business processes with little or no previous IT support,
  • Percentage weighting of your business processes (cost and benefit analysis).
