Avum has developed a decision framework that enables an organization to define the context in which technology is applied, and within which information flows among its business units in support of a comprehensive business strategy. We provide guidance for deployment of an enterprise architecture that facilitates a collaborative environment to establish and execute business objectives.
Avum has demonstrated that both businesses and government organizations experience decreased cost of operations subsequent to implementation of business-specific enterprise architecture. We provide not only the architectural framework, but the consulting service to ensure a "turn-key" system over which the business enterprise, subsequent to implementation, can take full ownership.
As shown in the accompanying diagram (click on image to enlarge), our system architects provide the original analysis to take the business enterprise from a current state to a target state, based on strategic business interests. This involves a transition from the current organizational operation to the target operation through a transitional process, controlled by standards based on both Avum experience and industry best practices. These architectural design criteria are modified by experience and vision of the business enterprise we serve. Through a collaborative effort, we model to the customer's original vision, applying Enterprise Architecture, consisting of our predefined basic architectural segments.
Along with our basic Enterprise Architecture Framework, we encourage innovative thinking to merge design, business processes, IT, and the power of hybrid servers and the internet, to achieve positive transformative and strategic changes to implement organizational objectives. Some of these objectives may not even have been considered in the organization's original strategy prior to their involvement in our architectural process and recognition of the advantages offered through this collaborative automation of the ultimate decision processes.
The Avum Enterprise Architecture Framework provides for technology insertion and a dynamically updated data repository, which jointly provide an underlying knowledge-based decision making environment. This knowledge-base is accessible by multiple business units through a common layer provided by our framework, which minimizes or eliminates potential conflict by allowing immediate access, by multiple applications representing individual business units, to a common repository.
The repository and underlying architecture provide for routine collaborative validation among business units prior to business decisions, which affect the organizational objectives, thus making maximum use of available information to increase operational efficiency and minimizing the potential for costly errors introduced by unilateral action taken based on an incomplete view of the big picture.
Avum is ready to work with you to make your vision a reality, in ways you may not have considered, and which can add millions of dollars to your positive cash flow for both e-Government and e-Business organizations.
