Technical Architecture

When starting a new web site development project, there are hundreds of decisions to be made about how to architect the solution. These decisions are literally the "make or break" points of the site's development effort.

Poorly architected web sites don't perform well, have errors in them and are incredibly difficult to maintain, especially over time. The result is a broken web site that doesn't meet the business's goals and may even push away customers.

Ensuring the proper architecture for a site is not a trivial task. In virtually every web content management system, there are many ways to accomplish a single goal. However, each of these methods has their own specific set of advantages and disadvantages. It's incredibly important that the right architectural decisions are made before the code is developed for the site. Trying to fix architectural issues during development, or even worse, after the site has launched is an exercise in frustration, lost time and money.

Architecture goes beyond the actual implementation of a specific web content management system, to include third-party tools and applications. Establishing how the WCMS integrates with external systems and tools is also critical to the overall solution architecture of the site. Finally, architecture is important because it provides team members with documentation of how the site is built, and why. This kind of information is invaluable to new team members.

Macroscopic system structure

We record architecture as a higher level design of the system that consists of a collection of modules that describe the interaction between these components.

Handling multitude of stakeholders

Systems designed by us have to cater to a variety of stakeholders, such as managers, clients, developers, and end users. Balancing all the stakeholder concerns and showing how they are addressed is also a part of designing the system.

Focus on Quality

We focus heavily on quality attributes, like backward compatibility, fault tolerance, reliability, extensibility, maintainability, security, usability, etc. while working on the architecture.
