No. 2 19 juillet 2009 Consulting in Architecture and Performance of Solutions (CAPS)
The Business Team strategicpositioning
For more than 10 years, our specialties are wide and complex integration projects of main ERP, CRM, SCM, HRMand BI solutions on the technical architecture side. Our methodology is based on architecture frameworks, as TOGAF, were we build and enhance technological foundations to achieve solutions SLA in line with companies constraints, evolutions and strategies. In these contexts, we drive and boost technical performance of the systems, the computing production industrialization and their deployment.
Architecture overview: audit of the As Is and progress plan of the software packages technical architectures.
Architecture design and model: technical base definition to manage software packages and support project team in integration stage.
International deployment: technical core model definition and deployment processes industrialization.
Production governance: model definition and solution exploitation industrialization
Change management: technical and version upgrade of wide solutions.
Natixis : Reengeneeringof the accounting core for the finance & international invest bank, in a European regulation context and a fusion. Based on Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise solution, the mission was to define and realize a technical base suitable for support 500 simultaneous connections and manage the integration of 4 million accounting writing a day. The architecture framework deployment provided us knowledge to answer to these demands in details. As a result, it became a new standard for the client for all its new projects. Portfolio CAPS

No. 4 19 juillet 2009 The Technical Architecture The architecture has to be built as an answer to the company strategy and the trade stake. It support fundamental levels of performance exigency: Performance, Robustness, Flexibility and Upgradability Environmental & organizational practices adaptation: rationalization programs in the Information Systems impose internal standards and practices providing an easier appropriation of internal and external teams. Portfolio CAPS The Logicaarchitecture framework guarantees the whole technical integration building are realized in their functional ambitions. The conceptual approach of the technical architecture is structured on the definition of strength Lines, which found the architecture dynamism. The plurality of technical and functional problematic is treated trough autonomousbuildings unified in a technical core model. Logica approach in models of architecture maturity, dissociates objectives supported by the solution and the imperative project, production necessities.
No. 5 19 juillet 2009 The CAPS Meta Offers: Solution Architecture
To accompany the group on all wide integration projects, whatever is the software package environment, through a differentiating architecture method regarding competitors..

No. 8 19 July 2009 Portfolio CAPS Logica Architecture Framework The LMC technical architecture approach on major solution integration projects is founded on famous architecture frameworks, enriched by IT Service Management measures for organizational, configuration management and industrialization areas.
Foundations of the architecture are issued from standardization IS programs, observed through trade stakes.
This iterative procedure is applied to the whole life cycle of the software solution, which first step is the building of a technical core model.
Huge evolutions are treated as a coherent and industrialized matter, through a controlled evolution of this core model.
No. 9 19 July 2009 Logica Architecture Framework
Technological standards and norms understanding
No. 10 19 July 2009 Throughprinciples of governance and security, conception of a technical core model is based on : The applicative architecture, the interoperability, and the accessibility, The infrastructure architecture. The architecture is piloted by the group strategy ambition: Practices and tools convergence, Referential & common services unification, Cost rationalization by industrialization of the exploiting devices. Constitution of operational support centers Local specificities are analyzed to measure their impact on the global architecture: Development: type and developing scale Respect of the eco-systems: suppliers, customers, competition and market. Behavior: load peaks, holidays Technical deployment capacity Skills and industrialization level.
The architecture strength lines are established as follows: :
Central Architecture, activity continuity plan and local access means,
Architectures in continental Data-Centers, or by subsidiaries, consolidation and data replication processes,
Architecture, offshore, interoperability, consolidation and local competence management processes.

No. 11 19 July 2009 Maturity Models of a Technical Architecture In order to dread the architecture solution in all its dimensions in production, LMC has defined an approach base on 3 observable levels. Portfolio CAPS
No. 12 19 July 2009 Design of a Technical Architecture Line infrastructure on business
To transform key business needs into structuring technical constraints.
To make practices and technological tools converge.
No. 13 19 July 2009 Technical Accompaniment for Subsidiaries Deployment To control the impact of successive deployments in subsidiaries of the applicative solution, in terms of QoS and stability, a building model for the architecture has been defined in 3 levels: Setup of a Common Technical Base (STC): Rationalization of the hardware infrastructure and of the shared services, Integration of the applicative configuration management practices, Setup of an architecture unifying optimization of the Total Possession Cost and preservation of local QoS. Definition and setup of Technical Core Model instances (CMT): Preservation of the trade core model, Standardization of the approach and of the technologies Rationalization of the costs and realization delays, Building of the production plan et governance Subsidiaries deployment pack (PDF): Pick-up charge of localizations, Production plan adjustments. Portfolio CAPS
No. 14 19 July 2009 The Subsidiaries Deployment Pack contains the whole elements to guarantee a quick and secure deployment for each new subsidiary. It is composed of the following elements: A cartography of the final user computers, printers and required updates (hardware and software) to guarantee a local performance level, The needs analysis in terms of bandwidth and upgrades – locally and globally-, An applicative security at two levels: a security level for the entire subsidiaries group of a CMT instance, and a second level dedicated to the each subsidiary. An exhaustive list of configurations, data and specific objects for the subsidiary, beyond the functional core model, The organization in terms of treatment capacity (batch files, parallelization level), The management of data restoration and interfaces, The batch production plan of the subsidiary and its impact on the BPP on the CMT instance it refers to, The scheduling of the jobs needs by the subsidiary deployment, in adequacy with the global planning of the deployment project.

No. 16 19 July 2009 The Technical Performance Continues The systems performance is a continuous process which traverse each project and continues in production 3 main steps can be distinguished, which key points are: Portfolio CAPS
No. 17 19 July 2009 The technical configuration of the production system has to be qualified in upstream from all release of an evolution that can potentially impact the system performance. This qualification step must be industrialized through an automated process called « Performance Benchmark ». This iterative process can be split up into 4 main steps: The Technical Performance Continues, focus on the Test Manufacture Portfolio CAPS
