System Architecture

With our combined knowledge of software development and infrastructure design, we are capable of providing complete turn key systems for our clients.

Success at the systems architecture level begins with understanding how systems meet users’ needs, as well as how a given system fits within an agency’s enterprise architecture, and planning and executing an effective systems integration approach. Fastglass LLC considers these aspects as it modernizes legacy system assets or develops new applications and interfaces for changing mission and business needs.

Business Challenge:

Many organizations face the challenge of implementing new business processes and technologies within environments that include legacy systems built in a stove-piped fashion over a number of years. System owners and users rely heavily on these systems and the data and results they provide. However, they must also adapt to changing policies and increasing technological needs, as well as implement new systems to meet updated missions. Often this means sending or receiving data and information from new systems or information sources. Meeting the requirements of these fast-paced changes leads to system modifications and enhancements that continue to put pressure on an organization’s budget.

How We Can Help:

Implementing new systems or modifying existing ones requires the right approach and selection of the right technology base — whether it’s a custom browser-based application or a commercial-off-the-shelf implementation. At Fastglass, we help agencies process, apply, and share information more securely and effectively by strategically aligning systems with enterprise architecture and creating flexible integration solutions. Fastglass offers a holistic approach to developing a systems architecture and integration solution. We begin by building an understanding of the business context for the system, focusing on all stakeholders’ needs. Then we select technologies that are leading and proven within industry, validate the chosen approaches against any governing enterprise architectures, and prove the system concept through rapid prototyping. Our solutions range from web-based transactional applications to complex systems that fit the overall accessibility and integration strategy for the enterprise. We’re skilled in technologies such as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) using custom brokers, Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) technologies, and Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) tools.

What You Can Achieve:

  • Increased flexibility and speed in addressing new business requirements
  • Greater value from existing applications, information, and business processes
  • Real-time access to accurate business information
  • Reduced total cost of ownership
  • Eliminated manual processing errors
  • Easier processes for adding best-of-breed applications
