We are in the business case phase, setting a scalable architecture that could support this Fintech, so we prepare the cost view at the different times of the implementation. Thanks very much in advance!
Have you considered using Aha!
Thanks Alfredo, having a look at the free trial to see if works! Pedro
Hi, Not knowing many details about your fintec app, I think, the best approach is to plan a horizontally scalable cloud infrastructure preferably on Amazon AWS. You may want to understand what is the traffic forecast for your fintec application. Based on forecast you can plan what kind of resources will you need now and in the future. You may also want to consider the redundancy and high availability requirements of the app as that may also have cost implications.
Thanks for the insight Shahzad! The project is still in the ping-pong of ideas and looking for a positive business case. Not yet reached the cloud infrastructure preference, but I definitive take your points for the next steps. Pedro
Pedro - I’ve found the “classic” approach of working from the use cases to the functional requirements to work well for me. Use cases capture the different ways in which a system is used. Each use case implies a number different functional and eventually technical requirements.
So - starting from the top: capture and describe the use cases, derive the functional requirements from there (supplementing it with non-functional requirement such as scalability etc).
Use these functional requirements to map to technical requirements and a task breakdown in your task management or project management system (ie Jira).
If often find it useful to document the flows through the system - both as state machines and activity diagrams - as supplemental sense checking artefacts.
The architectural views - ie the deployment, logical, process and implementation views are useful lenses with which to examine the architecture. Also consider the static and dynamic states of the architecture.
Once you approach the implementation phase I strongly recommend looking at this: https://12factor.net/
It provides a very useful methodology to apply to creating the application.
Merci Jacques! I coincide that this traditional modelling can fit well in this process. And I will have now a look at 12factor and see if valuable at this stage. Thanks again! Pedro
Dear Pedro. I found your message this morning in my email spam folder. That´s why I´m answering now. Do you mean additional funding for developing your app? Do you need external suppliers? EU funds maybe do not match.. maybe national or regional… Where are you from ? Best regards, Arantxa
Thanks for replying Arantxa! This is a project in Mexico and eventually the Americas. Just recommending an appropriate IT Cloud Architecture design to build up the business case. I am foreseeing an external supported “as a service” model at this point.
ok, Pedro. I thought it was funding issue…
Gracias Arantxa! Eventually, everything ends in a funding issue. Now still looking for a balanced business case. Thanks again for your comments! Pedro
