Solutions Architect / Systems Analyst

6 month contract


The client is undertaking some large programmes of work including a Data Centre Migration programme and an Infrastructure and Application Technical Upgrades programme, both of which involve a technically complex mix of Infrastructure and Application elements. They require a more detailed understanding of the technical stack by Application and Infrastructure and of the interactions and dependencies between them, in order to understand and design the optimal work packages for technical upgrade and data centre migration plans and schedules.

The objective of the Assignment is for the individual to analyse and document the 'as is' state of the IT estate, updating existing documentation or creating new documentation as appropriate, in order to help inform the designs and plans for the 'to be' state

Typical systems consist of physical and virtual servers, VMWare, OVM, Oracle DBMS, SQL Server DBMS, Windows, Linux, in-house developed, bought in, and customised applications such as SAP and Summit.

The Consultant shall carry out tasks under the Assignment including but not limited to:-

  • Analyse the technical 'stack' by Application, such as Application software versions, Operating Systems, servers, Databases, schemas, interactions/links/dependencies with other systems.
  • Analyse the technical 'stack' by infrastructure where it is underpinning or cross application.
  • Create and/or update documentation with the results of the analysis, and help to create and standardise formats/templates/locations. They use several artefact formats for documenting technical designs/architectures.
  • Cross reference information gathered by talking to the IT teams with information in other systems, e.g. the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) and information gathered by automated 'discovery' tools and ensuring that they are updated where appropriate.
  • Work with the relevant BAs to assess business impact of application upgrades and migrations.
  • Help the project teams to understand and design the optimal work packages for technical upgrade and data centre migration plans and schedules.
  • Help the project teams to understand and manage the technical dependencies for technical upgrade and data centre migration plans and schedules.
  • Identify technical upgrades which must/should be done before versions go out of support and/or ahead of a data centre migration.
  • The Consultant shall be required to provide documentation of all elements of the scoped works.
