IT architecture plays a proactive, collaborative role at Imola Informatica. Our system architects work across all areas to guide the evolution of your information system, and keep it effective, fast and secure.

We take part in projects and find solutions to achieve our customer’s goals, with sustainable costs and implementation times.


During digital transformation, companies are no longer able to manage IT systems using traditional approaches. They are too slow for the frequent, rapid changes required today. In these cases, at Imola Informatica, we help our customers with advice on DevOps.

We use a progressive, governable approach. We implement delivery process automation (continuous integration, deployment and testing). We encourage all the parties and units involved to integrate and work together.


We believe designing software means designing an integration-oriented architecture, which can easily be altered over time, with the utmost minimum vendor and technology lock-in.

This is why we are convinced it is always important:

  • to design integration patterns and architectural models
  • to select high-performance, scalable technologies.

Performance tuning

Making information systems fast and reliable is one of our daily activities. We apply our knowledge, and bring the culture of cooperation into organizations.

One fundamental aspect for us is simply to succeed in getting people with different skills to cooperate and work together to find the bottlenecks and improve the overall architecture.

Quality assurance

The quality of our software products reflects our skills and work process right up to roll-out. At Imola Informatica, we analyse every aspect. We take action technically and methodologically with the most appropriate tools for the context.

We act on the entire software life cycle to improve quality, including coding, versioning, building, deployment, monitoring during operation, and ticketing. We foster the culture of quality assurance in corporate working groups.


Companies often achieve their goals with excessive expenditure of resources and time. At Imola Informatica, we help our customers reduce bureaucracy: we only focus on activities that are valuable or necessary.

This approach means we can respond better to many customers, each one with their own strong, unique culture and history. We create customized projects in the classic way or with an agile approach, depending on the level of elasticity required.


IT architectures in many companies follow organizational charts, and are designed with a silo architecture. At Imola Informatica, we provide advice on migrating to service-oriented architectures (SOA).

We support our customers in the technological and organizational transition. We define an SOA roadmap together, including all methodological and technological aspects. We introduce processes for:

  • managing service life cycles
  • identifying roles and responsibilities
  • defining guidelines and respective policies.


Information systems are changing and becoming more integrated with people and their activities, and are increasingly flexible and able to evolve rapidly.

This is why we have experimented with adopting a microservice architecture at Imola Informatica, with independent processes able to perform very specific functions which may be integrated.

To assess the usefulness of a microservice architecture based on context, we share our expertise and experience with ItalianaSoftware, a company specializing in these architectures.
