Technology, businesses, and customer preferences in this day and age are evolving rapidly. Successfully navigating a landscape where business process and technology converge, requires nimble and responsive organisations that are able to rise to these challenges effectively.
Our Architecture team comes with many years of experience across a variety of industries. We understand the importance of viewing an Enterprises Architecture through multiple lenses and so have a team that crosses all the disciplines of business, integration, security and system architecture.
Process analysis, decomposition and design are the core functions that take business requirements through into a technology-architected solution.
Our Consultants and Associates understand that analysts need to focus on business processes and functions and present them in an end to end process flow so as to enable the technology architectural design.
Integration Architecture connects the modern enterprise to its internal stakeholders, trading partners and customers by providing the essential links between applications, platforms, business processes and data.
Our Integration Architects pride themselves on understanding the fundamental requirements of sound integration architecture, and are able to apply the multitude of integration software solutions and techniques an organisation has adopted.
Effective and efficient security architectures consist of multiple components and include the people, processes, policy requirements and tools that align together to protect company wide assets.
Our Architects follow a methodology that manages the co-ordination of these components ensuring that the security requirements are captured early on in an engagement. This allows the current, transition and future states of the organisations security architecture to be driven by, and align with, business vision, goals and policy. It also enables the security architecture to be implemented in a controlled fashion.
Technology landscapes are changing rapidly. Sometimes organisations struggle to keep pace and suffer competitive disadvantage.
Our architecture team understand the ever changing face of technology and how to keep up to date. They comprehend the technology and security risks and how to mitigate these risks utilising solid design principles and standards whilst maintaining technology agility.
Businesses, technology, and customer preferences in this day and age are evolving rapidly.
Successfully navigating complex business process and technology landscapes requires a nimble and responsive organisation. Being architecturally agile and well structured is key when rising to these challenges.
We believe the role of an Enterprise Architect is to bring the key areas of Business, Integration, Security and Technology Architecture together to provide the organisational alignment and clarity of design.
Integration connects the modern enterprise to its internal stakeholders, trading partners and customers by providing the essential links between applications, platforms, business processes and data sources.
Our Integration consultants pride themselves on understanding the fundamental requirements of sound integration, and are able to apply the multitude of integration software solutions and techniques an organisation has adopted.
In a world where more and more organisations are choosing to move core functions to a cloud service provider, the need for both secure and highly integrated and defined systems is critical.
We can assist your business to begin its journey, whilst enabling internal teams to understand the core requirements and functions needed to move functions to the cloud, ensuring that you maximise the value received from those services.
Mobility is the single biggest growth area in the world today.
We understand what is required to integrate the expanding mobile landscape with your business, whether exposing valuable business data to external consumers, or delivering to internal staff securely and reliably.
In addition, we work with some of our key partners to deliver sophisticated mobile applications.
The vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) is moving very rapidly from computer concept to reality, where everyday physical objects will be connected to the Internet and in turn to each other.
More commonly today, gateways enable solutions that allow enterprises and industries to solve complex information and user management challenges across Business-to-Partner (B2P), Business-to-Customer (B2C) and Business-to-Enterprise (B2E) relationships.
We can help guide your business to integrate with other businesses as well as with the ever growing number of consumers in the IoT's.
Organisations continue to look for business efficiencies through initiatives such as shared services across departments or entities. Key to the creation of such synergies is the understanding of what the common processes are and thus what common services can achieve better efficiencies.
We understand the linkage between an end to end business process and the utilisation of common services, and are able to use service orchestration to simplify and reduce your reliance on manual processes.
IT Governance is a management-backed initiative that requires strong authority and management support to implement a structured framework, enabling management to strategically align, measure, and manage IT resources in a way that will increase their visibility and value to the business, whilst reducing risk and providing a means of continual improvement.
By understanding your entire integration landscape Middleware New Zealand can assist you to establish or mature your integration practices. With well integrated internal systems and securely delivered external services we can bring this all together by orchestrating multiple complex technology systems with a user friendly approach.
Internal networks face increasing threats from both inside and outside an organisation. Not only do organisations need to prevent inappropriate internal access to business assets and potential fraudulent activities, but also ensure they have visibility to the ever increasing external threats from outside the organisation from cloud, mobile and web based solutions.
We believe the key to addressing these ever increasing threats is to ensure you have a companywide identity and access management (IAM) solution that provides a business policy led, and risk based framework to manage electronic identities both inside and outside the organisation.
Identity Lifecycle Management provides an organisation with an enforceable policy driven baseline of real-time controls that ensure users have appropriate access to corporate information. These controls are driven by their relationship with, and role within an organisation, so that a user's access is granted, modified or removed based on these policies.
We believe that in order to implement a sustainable compliance program, companies at any point in time must be able to report on who has access to which resources, and how access was granted; without these policies and controls an organisation is unable to ensure effective governance.
Access controls within an organisation are commonly manual driven processes that apply course grain policies based upon manager or owner approval. With the business side of an organisation demanding greater control to set and automate fine-grained policies, using a more intuitive and intelligent way, Identity Attribute Management provides the framework to deliver this requirement.
We can assist with Identity Attribute Management defining a model that enables validated Metadata about a user to be employed by the business owners to create logical and pragmatic policies that can be applied in real time.
With Identity Attribute Management providing you the information to develop the policies, Authentication & Access Management defines how and where these policies are applied to regulate access to information assets.
We assist organizations to develop an information assurance model that can incorporate biometrics, tokens or smart cards and other emerging technologies into a dynamic access management model which controls access to company resources by defining enforcement, decision, administration and information points.
Federated Identity Management (FIdM), or the "federation" of identity, describes the technologies, standards and use-cases that serve to enable the portability of identity information across otherwise autonomous security domains.
We work with organisations to enable users of one domain to securely access data or systems of another domain seamlessly, and without the need for completely redundant user administration.
Many Organisations are discovering that they require much greater visibility into who can access their key resources and how.
Our consultants understand that strong governance and clear visibility and control enable organisations to meet their regulatory compliance requirements, mitigate against any insider threat, as well as protect them from the heightened concern of their overall IT security.
The security circle would not be complete without these policies and processes being audited to ensure that required security compliance levels can be monitored and tracked.
We believe that with the ever-increasing communication channels, organisations need to enforce a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) framework. This framework will collect and aggregate audit files across multiple network devices and services in an organisation.
A SIEM framework enables an organisation to proactively and reactively monitor and respond to possible security breaches by defining event correlation policy models.
