We can analysis the following:

  • Code Reviews: how well put together a system is.
  • Technology life-cycle: engineering skills fit, costs of operation, replacement costs/risks.
  • Security: weaknesses and ways to address.
  • External Dependencies: packages, suppliers, standards.
  • Frameworks: Off the shelf, open-source, bespoke.
  • Business Objective Fit: missed opportunities, competitive advantages.

Systems Architecture Planning Critical to Success

We consider a well thought out and planned Systems Architecture to be critical to long term business success; without such a technical roadmap it is often difficult to know if what is being done is actually helping a business or hindering it. Also it becomes very difficult to deal with unexpected changes with confidence, as you have no clear picture of the consequences and actions required.

A good systems architecture is also a strong indication that engineering is being done correctly and with the right visibility and consultation to ensure a successful outcome – its very much the ‘glue’ that enables an engineering team to work effectively.

You wouldn’t build a house without a plan, it’s unthinkable that you would even try – to us the same rule applies to software systems on the cloud.


Aykira has over 15 years of experience in scaling cloud architecture with blue-chip companies internationally, producing innovative technical design solutions and patents. We know how to approach Software Architecture at scale correctly and how to ensure the right outcomes.
