Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture

IT driven Products and Process are key success factors for organizations in information intensive industries.  The value provided by these IT assets needs to be leveraged across the organization in a cost effective manner.  HJB Consulting partners with customers to enable reuse of IT assets, and to facilitate deployment of state of the art solutions.

We help our partners execute a set of simple steps to arrive at Data, Application, and Technology Architectures that enable and support their Business Architecture. Typical architecture artifacts include Conceptual, Logical and Physical views that leverage existing assets and propel your organization into model and service based architectures.

IT Vendor Selection

IT Vendor SelectionThe breath of commercial and open source solutions makes selecting tools needed by your business a time consuming and error prone endeavor. Based on a proven selection process we help customers acquire and deploy essential technology assets.   Our solution selection process successfully brings all stakeholders in your organization to the appropriate decision by ensuring that all business and technology drivers are analyzed, communicated, and thoroughly documented.

Successful selection processes engagements outlined in our Projects page include Identity and Access Management, Information Portals, Business Process Management, and Business Intelligence.

Business Process Management

Business ProcessBusiness and regulatory pressures dictate constant change. Nonetheless, many business processes embed decisions, calculations, and information flows within applications. In order for Information Technology (IT) professionals to support change in these processes they must develop, test, and release complete applications creating a mismatch between the speed at which these processes change, and the speed at which IT builds or modifies supporting applications.

HJB Consulting helps customers address this mismatch by introducing Business Process Management (BPM) technologies that externalize decisions (rules), calculations, and information flows (both workflow and content) thus injecting speed into process driven organizations.

Identity and Access Management

Identity AccessRequiring customers to enter multiple user/password combinations for related services is a small part of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) challenge. Business and regulatory pressures require operational excellence at all IAM levels including  Authentication, Authorization, Access Control, Administration (including self service and provisioning) and  Auditing. 

Weather your organization needs to implement Single Sign On (SSO) across your applications or to improve administration and auditing HJB Consulting has the experience and the tools knowledge to help you succeed.

Information Portals

Information PortalsPortals are one of the simplest forms of enterprise integration used for providing a single point of entry to information, people and processes. Portals combine content from multiple sources giving you the ability to span organizational boundaries quickly and seamlessly. HJB Consulting has helped customers plan, build and deploy internal Portals that serve employees, as well as external Portals that improve communications with partners and customers.

Whether you choose commercial or open source Portal solutions we bring the experience and expertise to help your organization generate significant business value from your Portal investment.
