Implementation & Deployment

Our implementations and deployments produce reliable and stable technology solutions with functionality needed to meet your objectives. We integrate our solution into your unique environment in a way that results in high-performing, mission-critical solutions that provide an optimal end-user experience.

From purchase to production and beyond…

We leverage APIs that accommodate host and third-party solutions and facilitate and accelerate implementations. After integration, our expert team helps you configure and enhance the solution to align with your business. Careful planning, execution, and monitoring result in a solution prepared for production use. Deployment options allow customers to choose an on-premise or cloud-based model.

System Integration2018-12-06T06:34:37+00:00

Integrates our solutions into your environments with host and third parties, network management, and desktop configuration.

Host and third party

Our strategy for integrating with external systems includes using published APIs and common service calls to simplify integration through data definitions, leaving protocol support to a system software layer driven by configuration data. When additional data elements are needed, solution capabilities extend the data model, adding critical business data.

The solution provides external system integration options including SOAP, web services, and message queues.

Peripheral devices

We use industry-standard, component-based methods and published APIs to quickly integrate different peripheral devices. Supported peripheral devices include check scanners, check printers, receipt printers, laser printers, card readers, signature authentication devices, and cash dispensers and recyclers.

Solution Tailoring2018-12-05T09:01:36+00:00

Configure and enhance our solutions to meet your business needs and objectives

Configuration

We hold workshops to gather and review customer requirements. Knowledge transfer includes a detailed functionality review including defining a configuration strategy and validating that the configured solution works as expected.

Enhancements

When conducting workshops, we may discover additional requirements that cannot be handled by configuration. In these cases, expanding the scope or customizing the solution may be required.

When enhancements are identified, we work to understand the business needs and priorities for requirements definition and implementation timing.

Operational readiness2018-11-24T12:56:38+00:00

Prepares our solutions for production by implementing defined deployment architecture, performing incremental validation and refinement, transferring knowledge, and transitioning ongoing operations to your personnel.

Architecture

We conduct nonfunctional requirements and architecture sizing-workshops to capture the operation and supporting structure for the solution. This process provides documentation, processes, knowledge transfer, and configured environments to support the non-functional requirements and deployment architecture.

User acceptance

We systematically validate and refine the solution, which results in an accepted, production-ready solution. The user acceptance process includes testing initial configurations and enhancements, defining end-to-end user scenarios, and using the solution in pilot locations.

Knowledge transfer

The Knowledge Center develops learning opportunities and materials tailored to the solution. Our team provides technical training for application architects, developers, and system administrators. We also provide training for business analysts and business-area users who manage or use our solutions.

Governance2018-11-24T12:57:47+00:00

Ensures alignment with strategy and objectives, timely value-based decision-making, return on investment delivery, and a predictable timeline.

Governance model

We provide a structured implementation process that mitigates risk and produces predictable results. Our highly engaged governance body employs disciplined controls and change management processes to support timely and accurate decision-making that ensures alignment and accountability with your objectives.

Monitoring through metrics

Our experience shows that focusing on monitoring and detection provides the metrics needed to accurately predict project health. Effective project governance depends on performance measurements to provide a concise, consistent, and objective view of project health.

Variance factors

We continuously evaluate known variance factors to identify the most effective governance model and provide insight into how each factor affects costs, timelines, and mitigation plans.

Deployment Options2018-11-24T12:58:41+00:00

Based on customer preferences, we offer an on-premise or cloud deployment option.

On-premise model

On-premise deployments support organizations choosing to manage the operating environment in their own data center. You provide the hardware, network, and personnel to manage the solution. ARGO provides monitoring and support services, as needed, to support your information technology staff.

Cloud model

Cloud deployment delivers ARGO solutions in a “software as a service” licensing model. Our software is centrally hosted in a Microsoft Azure Services U.S.-data center and licensed on a subscription basis.
