At Xentity, our Services Catalog focuses on architecture, management, research, and communication lifecycle challenges for large organizations in both the private and public sectors. We offer these services in a traditional manner for corporate or agency headquarters. This helps design, analyze and enhance the management of the overall entity, enterprise, etc. We also operate in extending current leadership and management capabilities. In doing so, we offer innovative architecture, design, and change approaches. Also, solutions that help accelerate and increase the quality and relevance of the project, program, management, governance, and implementation.

Rather than use proprietary methods unique to Xentity, instead, there are methods and tools that are non-proprietary. They are also adopted by federal and large enterprise architecture programs. We even provide the toolsets, methods, templates, training for our clients and partners. Currently, we plan to release a collaborative wiki of our extensive library of tools, templates, and training guides over 2013 and 2014 to help in expanding our use. Also, expanding our understanding of the approach.

So What Is Different?

As discussed in our previous blog: Blending a Distributed Transformation Team, we approach transformation methods by reporting to corporate sponsors. However we do so with close, on-the-ground ties with the program’s team as much as possible. We do this whether it is in the mission or in the operations and product management. Moreso, we try to focus our subject matter expertise, as one of our core architecture concepts point out, on services for Earth Mission Areas. On top of our enterprise services, our consultants are experts in applying these services to issues that are critical to large world transformation such as energy, water, climate, geospatial, remote sensing, natural resources, travel, and education.

Furthermore, to grow our expertise, we also invest in researching and directing our patterns. This allows us to prove our concepts and strengthen the specific business cases addressing these world challenges. This allows us to provide re-usable approaches, innovative concepts and solution patterns that are applicable to specific to your industries.

This is a major difference over staff augmentation agencies. We not only bring the technical requirements, the staff and business management, and domain knowledge. We also share the architecture, management, and communication patterns from our knowledge base across the industry on emerging commodities such as in cloud, geospatial, energy information, etc.
