IT Architecture & Innovation
IT Architecture & Innovation comprises of many concepts such as Strategy for Cloud Computing,Assessing IT-architecture, Defining the Architecture roadmap, Assessing Datacenter & Infrastructure Operations, Assessing Application Architecture, and Defining Innovation Lifecycle Management.
Typically, TansTech considers IT Architecture & Innovation as strategic topics and advises its clients independently on these subjects. Being independent TansTech has no interest in IT technology as such (we are not a vendor), which means that our clients may expect honest and balanced advice.
The TansTech ‘IT Architecture & Innovation’ practice focuses on advising clients in making the right choices regarding their (IT) Architecture and innovation of IT.
Propositions that TansTech have available to customers are assessments, approaches for the definition of the architecture or the innovation lifecycle roadmap all executed by TansTech consultants with ample experience in the field.

Strategy for cloud computing
More and more companies have already contracted services from the cloud, or will do so shortly. Even more companies are thinking about it. Most companies still struggle with issues that are related to cloud computing, and lack a fully developed cloud strategy.
In TansTech’s view, it is important that clients determine the impact of cloud computing on their business, and in doing so take the next aspects into account: Processes, management, governance, sourcing and security.
In to benefit from cloud computing TansTech therefore advises their clients to focus on, and improve, their own architecture, sourcing strategy and IT Governance.
In the process of defining a strategy for cloud computing TansTech can advise their clients on the feasibility of cloud computing in their specific situation, the benefits and the related risks.
A sound IT-Infrastructure should be based on a well-documented, maintained and implemented IT-Architecture. With this IT-Infrastructure a proper IT service can be delivered if supported by mature processes, competent staff and the right tooling. There should be sufficient focus on and attention for the IT-Architecture, especially if you want to meet:
TansTech offer the service of assessing the current IT-Architecture, taking into account the following topics:
Defining the Architecture roadmap
Development of business- or IT-related architectures is often a one-off process, requiring a lot of effort. Without maintaining the results of this process, it needs repeating every couple of years.
Another, and in TansTech’s opinion, better approach is to define a roadmap for the architecture. The roadmap makes future major developments in the architecture(s) over a period of three to four years visible. By doing so the architecture-related stakeholders have better insight in what to expect from an architectural perspective, and planning of development activities can be improved.
In the architecture roadmap the foreseeable changes in the architectures are reflected, obviously impacted by business- and/or IT-driven changes.
TansTech provides the client with a structured approach for the definition of the Architecture roadmap, in which desired, necessary and logical developments will be combined and priorities will be set. Assisted with TansTech’s experienced consultants the result will be an Architecture roadmap that is a strong foundation for the future architecture developments.
Assessing Datacenter & Infrastructure Operations
A sound IT-Infrastructure should be accompanied by proper datacenter and infrastructure operations. Good IT services can only be delivered if the IT-Infrastructure is supported by mature processes, competent staff and the right tooling.
TansTech offer the service of assessing an organization’s current datacenter and infrastructure operations, taking into account the next topics:
Assessing Application Architecture
The Application Architecture should be part of an organization’s portfolio of IT-related architectures. Therefore any organization should focus sufficiently on, and pay attention to the Application Architecture, especially if their goals are to meet:
