Our Vision    

Although businesses often focus primarily on the providing the best application or product, there are many other important IT capabilities that are required to launch, and maintain an IT product or service.  These requirements are just as important and enable businesses to provide viable, sustainable, and reliable product or service. Such areas include Infrastructure Architecture, Security and Operational practices. The Stratta Group focuses on the providing a combination of Expert Infrastructure Architecture, Security and Operational capabilities and services including:

  • Expert Infrastructure and Security consultancy so as to achieve a comprehensive Infrastructure, Security and Operational architecture, 
  • Infrastructure build-out services to implement the infrastructure architecture putting into place the security and operational controls necessary to run your business, 
  • Various services such as code control services, application health monitoring, system logging, application deployment automation, Disaster Recovery (DR) processes, Security controls and governance, to name a few,
  • Recommend and implement third-party and partner provided services to meet financial service industry security and operational requirements. 

Providing application services to the financial services industry can be a challenging task due to the stringent availability, infrastructure architecture, operational and security requirements. The financial services industry often requires that strict infrastructure architectural requirements be met, that operational standards and practices be established and put into practice, and that a comprehensive, auditable security architecture and implementation is put in place. 

While the financial services industry subscribes to various standards, such as ISO 27001, Safe Harbor, SSAE 16 (SAS 70 Type II) certification, COBIT 5, PCI and IT Services Management (ITIL) frameworks for IT governance, to measure services providers against, even these standards are often inadequate to meet the more stringent requirements of financial services clients.  When attempting to provide application services to the financial services industry, companies are often faced with responding to a large set of questions posed by the potential clients, which address a litany of topics ranging from all aspects of security, auditable operational processes and procedures utilized by the application provider,  infrastructure architecture, data loss and down-time SLA (service level agreement) guarantees, disaster recover capabilities, data backup, the handling of sensitive client data, regional/boarder data controls, development environments, the use of formal software release processes, code storage and change control, the separation of staging environments including Development, Quality Assurance, User Acceptance Test, and Production, etc. 

Furthermore, application providers often lack the unique skills and personnel that are needed to implement cost-effective infrastructure architecture solutions, establish the auditable operational processes and procedures, and implement appropriate security architecture, standards and controls that meet the broad security requirements, all the way from physical security, including the network level, up to secure application implementation standards utilized by the development team(s). We can help your company achieve the capabilities.
