Why your Architecture demands
the Well-architected Framework?

Like any other type of engineering, the foundation decides the quality of what is built on top of it. Speaking of software, its architecture is the foundation of the entire system.

In a traditional development environment, architectural decisions are often backed by onetime events, with no more than a few major versions of the architecture during its lifetime. However, as a business and its context evolve, these initial decisions hinder the system’s ability to meet the technical requirements of an ever-changing business.

Moreover, if the architectural decisions are based on guesswork, without sufficient testing at the production scale, combined with time-consuming manual processes and a lack of thought to how architectural requirements change over time, things are bound to fail. This is why you need a Well-Architected Framework.

Unlike other software assessments, WAR helps your team to learn best practices for architecting and operating a reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective system on AWS. Ultimately, this helps businesses build systems that adapt to the evolving requirements and take advantage of innovations as a standard practice.

Simform recommends WAR because the process of software architecture assessment is a constructive conversation among the stakeholders about architectural decisions. Most importantly, it’s not just an audit mechanism. From our years of experience, we confidently vouch that a well-architected system helps businesses achieve greater success.

Our WAR process

Connect with AWS experts

The first step is to connect with our AWS solution architects and know the critical areas that need attention. Here, you will be exchanging information and read access to AWS accounts with our experts to assess the architecture, security policies, information distribution, and other potential configurations.

Call it a casual interaction with the AWS experts, not a formal review meeting.

Unit testing
Functional testing

Meeting stakeholders

The second step is to involve your stakeholders and team members of the infrastructure team to discuss issues with the existing architecture.

A 2-4 hour discussion will take place between Simform’s technical team and your internal team to understand the environment and dependencies, a walkthrough of the framework, and a solid overview of how well your existing architecture is aligned with the AWS best practices.

WAR Report

Later, we’ll give you a detailed well-architected review report consisting of current findings and areas of improvement based on the level of risks involved. This will set the foundation for prioritizing the actual tasks.

Then, it’s time to decide, involve vital people, and set priorities. Be it security compliance you’re missing on to or optimizing workload performance; you have the action plan ready.

Integration testing
non functional testing

Implementation stage

AWS encourages creating a business value rather than giving your time to fix recurring issues. Start implementing the best practices recommended by AWS experts as soon as your review is done, within a week or two.

It gives you a clearer picture of before and after the inspection. Take note of what you learned, what improvements were uncovered, and how findings helped you get the more significant advantage. 

The Follow-up

After 30-60 days of your actual review, we’ll follow up to determine that the implementations conducted are working fine and have improved the architecture. Also, AWS encourages to get the assessments done from time to time as architectures evolve and you have new functionalities and features with time; it needs an update.

The good news is, with Simform and AWS, you have the opportunity to take advantage of AWS funding programs for your assessments.
