Craft master plan?
Translate business needs into solution architecture
Starting or revising your data platform will involve the creation of a master plan. The master plan will plot a dot on the horizon to where you want to move with your solution. Depending on the current situation a roadmap will follow. The solution architect will assist in the collection of business needs and translating these into requirements. This set of requirements will form the base for your solution architecture and roadmap.
Set up data platform?
Advise on best practices and design
The solution architecture must eventually include a plan on how to set up the data platform. Using best practices provided by suppliers a first draft is created. Based on the gathered requirement the design will be adapted to be a well architected solution. The resulting design is the blue print for implementation.
Partner with team members and other roles
Once the solution architecture is ready to be implemented the architect will stay in the loop to keep business, developers, data engineers and other roles aligned. Via a fail fast approach business will be consulted in every release cycle and the solution architecture will be improved where needed.
