ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Web Architecture Service
The key to a stable and robust web site is the foundation upon which they’re built. Geodetic, with its sixteen years of experience, will work with you on the architecture and design of your proposed web site product and ensure you receive the best possible service.
We define the architecture as the data framework and environment that your web site delivers under. The Geodetic Architecture & Design Service incorporates helping you make the right decision about how to deploy your application or service. Geodetic will introduce you to technologies and options you may not yet have considered and Geodetic will guide you all the way with experienced hands.
Defining the right architecture usually involves selecting the right database back-end, if your web site is data driven, the right server platforms (Unix or Windows) and the right choice of transport mechanisms to deliver your content to your users. For example, you may prefer or need to web host your own web sites or perhaps want to consider a dedicated web hosting platform or simply deploy onto a commercially available web host such as simply.com.
Geodetic will not only document the architectural decision process, at whatever level you choose, but will also fully document, deliver and deploy your web site for you as part of the service. The Geodetic Architecture & Design Service works closely with other Geodetic services so that your entire project is as joined up as it needs to be. Documentation delivered by one service follows the same standard as all other services. [Links to Documentation examples]
Web Design Service
When Geodetic engage with a client project, especially when from scratch, the Geodetic Design Service team ensure that, before a line of code is written, or the first web page is drawn, you have the most effective design fully documented to whatever standard you choose. The more formal, usually means the more expensive but that expense is usually worth the extra effort and design outputs because it allows your project to continue in-house if that’s what you need.
After a solid sixteen years of experience designing and developing software products and web sites Geodetic knows that design, design, design is the project office mantra. Geodetic staff typically spends proportionately less time coding than they do designing. Get the design right and the coding is simpler and certainly more structured. Geodetic have lost track of the number of projects developed by well meaning coders that haven’t followed a formal or even informal design philosophy. The result is very messy code, long straggling procedures and functions, bad data handling, return trip coding and bolt-on modules that were never designed to fit together in the first place. The Geodetic Design Service will ensure your project is designed well from start to finish. Geodetic typically encourages the inclusion of your real-world users to feedback on feature design and functionality and can liaise directly with user groups if required. Geodetic can also provider its own bank on alpha and beta users to provide alternative feedback.
Geodetic staff hate the prospect of spending weeks on a project only to find the users or client don’t like it or find it difficult and unintuitive to use. It is far more effective to change the look and feel of a web site before it goes to the development team.
