Solution & Data Architecture


Solution & Data Architecture

The Fourth Industry Revolution (IR4) is upon us. To thrive in this environment, innovations must be developed to meet current and future business needs. W. Capra has a team of retail architects that specialize in evaluating business needs, data requirements and industry innovations to engineer best-in-class, business-minded solutions supporting strategic roadmaps.

W. Capra’s approach is to analyze, architect, and implement. An analysis will be conducted of the current environment, the strategic roadmap, and industry innovations. The solution is then architected based on the analysis while ensuring standards-driven integration between components is fit-for-purpose, extensible and scalable. During the implementation process, we work to ensure the architecture is implemented properly, tested and reviewed to guarantee the solution is setup and operating as designed.
