We lead - By building the teams
that build the future
Auldenfire Sweden is an Enterprise Architectural practice founded by
a like-minded group of senior Information Technology Professionals as
an entrepreneurial initiative. The core team is comprised of senior consultants
that have worked together on several global enterprise projects. The binding
force drawing this team together derives from our collective interest
and passion in enterprise architecture.
Auldenfire Sweden was initially funded as a venture capital project by
Auldenfire, LLC. Incubation support in the form of software development
tools and licenses, computer hardware, office furnishings, and communication
equipment were provided by ASR Strategic Resources, LLC. Auldenfire Group
actively encourages the formation of new entrepreneurial business initiatives
through an established business development organization that provides
both venture capital and incubator support in the form of core infrastructure
resources. From the beginning, Auldenfire Sweden has been self funded,
with regard to operational costs, and is currently debt free.
Auldenfire Sweden's marketing philosophy is focused on building strategic
partnerships with our clients. We believe that our service offerings and
pricing structures should be oriented towards maintaining long-term relationships.
This requires a mindset that recognizes the need to make tactical decisions
that may not produce immediate returns. Investing in our client and partner
relationships builds the trust that is essential for achieving a long-term,
Auldenfire Sweden has seven interrelated core business offerings:
Enterprise Systems Architecture Laboratory (ESAL)
ESAL provides an environment to develop and test Enterprise Architectural
solutions. Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) technologies,
methodologies, and implementations are reviewed, developed, and refined.
Training and education are facilitated by the hands-on environment
provided by the laboratory. The ESAL also provides a vital development
sandbox for Model Driven Architecture (MDA™) research.
Enterprise Architectural Consulting Services
Enterprise architects and developers versed in component-oriented
technologies and methodologies help clients implement complex enterprise
solutions. Experienced architects and managers provide critical mentoring
and discipline to help avoid common EAI pitfalls.
Enterprise Software Development Services
EAI services ranging from application integration to custom application
development are provided by seasoned professionals that have worked
on large-scale, global programs. Our consultants and developers understand
the requirements essential for success. Development teams must understand
and have experience in the full life-cycle development process.
Product development is focused around the Auldenfire Atelier
methodology and the Auldenfire Legion product, which provides
Integration Services and Repository
Services solutions for the enterprise.
Education and Training Services
The rapid emergence of Enterprise Application Integration and the
prerequisite knowledge in Enterprise Architecture has created a need
for effective training and education programs. Auldenfire Sweden supports
two educational initiatives:
- Auldenfire Sweden provides education and training services internally
for our staff and externally for our clients. Education topics range
from high-level management issues to detailed hands-on implementation
skills and procedures. In depth, hands-on training is carried out
at our Enterprise Systems Architecture Laboratory (ESAL).
- Auldenfire Sweden is working with international standards and professional
organizations to establish meaningful education programs. Auldenfire
Sweden works actively with the Object Management Group (OMG®),
the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP),
and the Institute for the Certification of Computing Professionals
(ICCP) in developing
enterprise architectural curriculums and standards. We take the view
that a vendor neutral approach is preferred and that the process of
defining industry standards should be open.
Technology Assessment Services
The rapid growth in Enterprise Application Integration technology
coupled with the relative infancy of the industry as a whole creates
problems in identifying effective and efficient solutions. Many vendor
offerings are similar enough that nuances in performance and capability
may not be adequately understood. Auldenfire Sweden has real-world,
hands-on experience with many vendor solutions. Our architects and
developers stay current by working with vendors, clients, and conducting
assessment reviews in our Enterprise Systems Architecture Laboratory
(ESAL). Auldenfire Sweden can analyze requirements and provide a customized
assessment on which technologies are best suited for a given scenario
Strategic Advisory Services
Enterprise Architecture, especially with regard to Enterprise Application
Integration, is just beginning to emerge from its infancy. Rapid changes
and developments in technology, industry standards, and in architecture
are difficult to keep abreast of. Auldenfire Sweden provides senior
level corporate and Information Technology management with Strategic
Reports, which summarize industry trends, practices, and successful
implementation practices. This knowledge is gained through the hands-on
experience gained by working in the real-world. Auldenfire Sweden
is committed to maintaining a leading role in Enterprise Architecture.
Auldenfire Sweden is interested in people that want to build the future.
Our people are experienced in successfully implementing enterprise architectural
solutions: Solving difficult integration issues, developing software solutions,
and in managing the full project life-cycle from inception through deployment.
By working in the trenches, we have acquired valuable knowledge in how
to avoid pitfalls, in knowing what really works, and how to deliver on
time and right the first time.
