Service Line Offerings
The following is the list of identified offerings, broken down by service line.
Innovators are master craftsmen in the art and science of application development. Great software elegantly solves problems that can withstand the test of time. From how to fully realize revenue capabilities, increase current system performance, or make that great new idea into a reality, application development seeks to craft solutions to resolve these quandaries.
The most important part of development, whether in the cloud, on-premise, or in the enhancement of an existing product, is the development of a great relationship with the people we are tasked to serve. Assessment, taking the time to gain a rich understanding of the problem, is key to delivering a successful project. Innovators work side-by-side with stakeholders and current team members to design a plan of action that can swiftly produce their desired outcomes.
At Architecting Innovation, we offer a full suite of application development solutions to meet your distinct needs.

Whether your project is a mobile app, website or enterprise application, UX is essential in creating a successful result. UX sits at the center of 3 elements - Business Goals, User Experience and Technology.
The UX process is sometimes mistakenly thought of as choosing fonts and colors. That is just a small part of it. It’s gathering the facts, exploring options, and reaching decisions - what to leave in; what to leave out; what to feature more prominently; what navigation and input methods will best solve the problem and serve the business objectives with the least friction to the user.
Often the challenge is to add more complexity while simultaneously simplifying the experience for the user. Every click, every screen, every obstacle is an opportunity for the user to say, " it. I’m going someplace where it’s easier."
At Architecting Innovation, we offer an a la carte menu of UX deliverables included in the list below. Every project is unique and may benefit from all or a selection of these services.
