Metropolitan Design and Development, Inc. is an Enterprise Intelligence Integration (EII) technology firm focused on providing quality strategic solutions to Fortune 500, Inc. 100 and regulatory agency clients. Our experience in enterprise integration enables our clients to effectively leverage their organization's cumulative investment in legacy applications, divergent data repositories and third-party SaaS applications in order to gain the highest possible level of competitive marketplace advantages, operational efficiencies, and risk mitigation.

Metropolitan Design and Development's unique method called  MetroFlex-Laredo,  is designed to cost effectively extrapolate and transform the business rules embedded within first and second generation legacy applications into accessible, dialectical object neural node agents (MetroFlex-Donna). These knowledge delegates help our clients achieve reliable, real-time data and information exchange over intra-nets (enterprise-wide) and extra-nets (suppliers and associates).

For EII initiatives outside the definition of  traditional legacy systems, such as packaged enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, transactional processing application servers (TPAS), Document/Matter Management Systems and sophisticated middleware messaging products, Metropolitan Design and Development offers MetroFlex-IDA , an integration domain architecture strategy builder designed to identify the business process, business definitions, external process constraints (compliance/governance), interface components and technical environment complexities into manageable domains of concentration. From these target layers, our consultants are able to fully assess the requirements, risks, challenges and benefits specific to each unique EII project.

After the identification phase of a particular EII project has been completed, our consultants work with our client's  engineering associates to produce an architectural model and a working prototype of mutually selected components.  To achieve optimum success during IDA Phase II, Metropolitan Design and Development manages the implementation details using the IDA checklist.

Implementation Determination Approach (IDA) Phase II Checklist

  • Physical Delivery (e.g. network, security, servers, appliances)
  • Transaction Integrity (e.g. fault tolerance, logging, monitoring)
  • Data/Information Translation (e.g. semantic, data, interface conversion)
  • Timing (e.g. request/reply, publish/subscribe, scheduling, events)
  • Constraints and Rules ( e.g. HIPAA, SEC, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, Sarbanes-Oxley, FERC)
  • Business Process  (e.g. workflow, business rules, BPEL)
  • Connectivity Routing (e.g. point-to-point, hub-and-spoke)
  • Integration Standards/Common Architectures (e.g.  XML, IMWA, UCC, EDI, X12, RosettaNet, CORBA, SOAP, REST)

Once IDA Phase II is completed on our projects, our consultants work attentively to assure that our clients enjoy the dividends of a thriving EII implementation.

The philosophy behind our organization is to deliver quality solutions which our clients are as excited to receive as we are to turn over in as rapid a time frame as possible! Agile development aids us in making this philosophy possible by providing the framework needed to produce a working solution that does not stray from our client's vision because our client reviews, tests and provides us feedback after each alpha release. In essence, practicing agile development emphasizes communication between our engineers and the business sponsors of the project in order to deliver reliable, usable solutions rather than deliver status reports about a possible future solution! Wikipedia' reference to Agile Development is one of the most thorough on the web.  For those interested in open source tools for Agile project management, Kunagi is an excellent starting point.

The YouTube excerpt below begins with Mike Cohn, the founder of Mountain Goat Software, which is a process and project management consultancy and training firm. He is the author of User Stories Applied for Agile Software Development and Agile Estimating and Planning, as well as books on Java and C++ programming. Mike is a founding member of the AgileAlliance and serves on its board of directors. He can be reached at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
