13 Reference architecture

We will communicate and share our reference architecture across the agency.

Reference architecture

  • Reference architecture contains the building blocks for solutions, providing consistency and forming the basis for sound governance.
  • Reference architecture continually refined and maintained through the Technology Strategy and Business Strategy, horizon scanning and feedback from solution operations, ensuring it remains relevant, pragmatic and deliverable, and supports the needs of the organisation.
  • When we deploy our new services, we always lay the foundation for our transformation and new technology. Changes to the technology estate are limited to legislative delivery (based on timescales), changes required for transformation or essential upgrades such as security compliance.
