Why We Are Extraordinarily Good At It


firmitas • utilitas • venustas

Vitruvius emphasized the importance of visualizing the enterprise by architects who thoroughly understand the purpose of the structure.  Slipglass professionals bring a profound understanding of the technical, operational, and system views of an organization’s processes and technical infrastructure.  We provide the firmitas component of the enterprise by modeling the utilitas using our own visual process that is simply venustas.  Our modeling technique supports the Department of Defense Architecture Framework with our collaboration software on a large touch screen.  As the functionality is modeled, the security requirements are annotated, distributed, and fulfilled in a structured prototype of your organization’s personnel, facilities, computers, applications, and networks.

The principles of architecture were matured in the first century B.C. by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, the master of Roman design.  His philosophy on creating enduring systems is refined to firmitas (strength), utilitas (functionality), and venustas (beauty).  We agree.
