Our Approach

Our collaborative, disciplined approach is committed to quality, value, time and budget.   

AIS’ proven collaborative and disciplined approach to building high-quality and high-value solutions for our clients is built on a deep understanding of our clients’ business needs and objectives so that we can jointly define an optimal approach that delivers the solution in a timely, cost-effective manner.  

Methodology 

We strongly embrace the core Agile principles of empowered teams, continual customer collaboration, highly disciplined work practices and delivering software solutions iteratively to enable our clients to realize maximum value from their IT investments while minimizing risk.  Our staff has extensive, proven experience in delivering solutions using project management and software/systems engineering practices from both Agile and formal methods.  

AIS prides itself on being on the leading edge of software engineering practices and we make substantial investments in providing training for our staff on the latest industry methods, practices and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools.  We have proven experience in utilizing the Microsoft ALM platform of Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server to deliver projects at scale from small co-located individual project teams, to large-scale programs using multiple, worldwide distributed teams. 

The AIS Way 

For each and every project, we proactively work with our client to define the right set of practices that best fit the scope of the project, always with the core goal of delivering working software as early and cost effectively as possible. We also seek to leverage the clients’ existing supporting development tools and infrastructure to the maximum extent possible…while constantly looking for ways to help clients improve their software development practices and support tools for long-term, transformative results.
