Dake Solutions uses bespoke enterprise architecture to provide a holistic view of the processes, data, application systems and technology infrastructure that exists within organizations. This holistic view, or blueprint, provides strategic context for planning the evolution of institutional information systems into an integrated environment that is responsive to change and supports the delivery of business strategy.
Dake uses principles when making any decision regarding the use, selection, evolution and integration of all information systems resources and assets at any organization. These principles are inter-related and need to be applied as a cohesive set. Each principle is considered in the context of “all other things being equal”. There are times when a decision will need to be made regarding which principles will take precedence on an issue. When those situations arise, the rational for the decision needs to be recorded. The recorded rational will be used to inform future decisions on the initiative and allow for the consistent application of the principles.
These principles provide guidance and direction for the use and evolution of any set of information systems. Deviating from the principles may result in unnecessary and avoidable long-term costs and risks. As such, Dake Solutions ensures that deviation from the solution-set bound by these principles requires the explicit approval of the relevant governance protocol through Dake’s own designated Architectural Governance process.
