Enterprise architecture in the cloud applies equally to the vision and concept as well as enabling technology, from mobile device to enterprise to multi-cloud deployment.

Transformation and Transition

By determining maturity—in terms of vision, steering, culture, people, processes, and technology—organisations can establish an architecture baseline and create a roadmap for improving service cost effectiveness and lifecycle. The approach involves strategic planning at the enterprise level, while maintaining the flexibility to address immediate tactical requirements.

Once properly assessed and specified,  delivery of new technology  can provided continuous service improvement strategy, enabling industry best practice.

Mobilisation towards a flexible change-managed technology aligns business goals and  visions.

Enterprise Security Architecture Services

Security is not about chasing the latest hack to address the plethora of new threats.  It is about minimizing vulnerability. 

As part of developing security for new technology, the objective is to educate, mentor and coach the most valued resource,  people - to embrace, advocate and implement beneficial change.  

A review of current and target state technology provides a strategic security architecture roadmap for new technology development.

Estimation of delivery costs is essential for successful deployment. Identification of key performance measures provides a set of technology objectives,  from feasibility study, to architecture and program governance,  planning and strategy, through continuous improvement delivery cycles. 

It is important to provide a path for the development of  business and  technical services for integration with existing corporate systems.

Multi- threading resource management of people, time and money to facilitate the path to technology innovation is one of the benefits of technology roadmaps. 

Architecture Assessments

Architecture assessment use extensive business experience to effect optimisation of infrastructure performance.

Comprehensive  site specific surveys to improve performance of technology can save a lot of time and money before installation of new equipment and technology.

This applies equally to energy efficiency of production for both goods and services, for example recommending energy efficient data centre operations, through private and public cloud offerings. 

Information can be collected and disseminated in near realtime gathered from meters, sensors and other smart devices.

Trac-Car architects have extensive experience, knowledge and resources to provide targeted consultancy services. 

Trac-Car offers architecture, design and development of technology, people, and processes. We engage in stakeholder collaboration for security, policy, information, and technology performance.

Metrics and Management


Web access  to near real monitoring, logging and user access data is an opportunity to understand usage patterns and behaviours

Metrics are important, and with input from subject matter experts (SMEs)  realistic and targeted savings can be put in place with suppliers based on site specific challenges.  

Aligned with technology specialists, cross referencing information from different sources provides valuable clues to enabling technology. 

Consideration of metrics, combined with better uses of existing  and  new technology provides a path for success.  Proven results are the ones that matter, and critical factors  can be determined  to leverage value for money over time.  Technology choices can be set out clearly and effectively so that relevant comparisons can be made in view of resource constraints.

Dashboards and Reports

Reports, dashboards and KPIs of energy usage, CO2e and carbon offsets insights provided by near real time data.  What can be measured can be managed.

Trac-Car helps reduce costs and speed the operation of customer ICT portfolio to produce significant overall efficiency improvements.

Solutions are based on mitigating risk, ensuring compliance, improving quality and enhancing the value of the ICT infrastructure to the business.

Technology Roadmaps

Sharing knowledge and information is key to enabling delivery efficiency.

Solving customer site specific technology challenges, requires not only the technology, but also the knowledge and strategic planning for technology transition. 

Enterprise solutions require a methodology that embraces all frameworks, platforms and technologies, as well as business stakeholder engagement and supplier negotiation and management.
