Architecture Design

Businesses are increasingly challenged by rapidly changing markets, increasing customer expectations and more stringent product quality demands. Technology is a critical success factor in this dynamic environment. Organizations that have not yet begun the task of transforming their systems will find it difficult, if not impossible, to survive as market competition expands globally. To achieve a competitive edge in this environment, a new business model is needed to understand the changing advancement in technology and align them with strategic business goals.

Quality Assurance

Simple. Flexible. Customized. These are our specialties. Avantia’s Testing Practice works with you to understand your risks, develop the optimal test strategy, and find the right balance between too much and too little testing. We offer a full range of quality assurance services.

Quality Assurance

Custom approach, Managing Risk, Adaptable

Whether your software development process is waterfall, iterative or agile, testing is a strategic initiative that requires hard work, an acute understanding of risk and flexibility to change. Avantia can help you manage those risks and quickly respond to your changing priorities. Business systems today are more complex than they have ever been. The number of components required to assemble a system has grown exponentially! Software testing has become equally complex.

  • How much will testing cost?
  • How long will it take?
  • Reduced response time
  • What is at risk if we don't test?

Like many other software activities, testing involves tradeoffs, and unfortunately, there are no magic bullets. Avantia’s Testing Practice is built on the premise that testing needs to be simple, flexible and adaptable to your business needs. We partner with our clients to customize testing solutions that enable them to adapt testing practices to their constantly changing environments and processes. We work with clients to identify the aspects of testing that are needed to successfully manage their needs and priorities including quality, project schedules and budgets. We know testing, you know your business. Let’s rendezvous to create the optimal solution for you.

Content Management

Who owns the information on your public web site or Intranet? How often should it be refreshed? Are there any corporate rules governing this information? These are all very good questions! Wrestling with web site content has been an issue since the advent of Internet technology. Historically your IT department had to make the changes and updates because it required knowledge of programming languages and the technology behind your sites. Today companies are recognizing the impact that a Content Management System can have on the accuracy and timeliness of information as well as efficiencies gained by putting the ability to make changes into the hands of the people or departments directly responsible for that information. However, choosing the right solution can be tricky. There are many choices in “off-the-shelf” software or you could choose to build a custom solution tailored to your needs. Avantia is experienced in helping organizations make informed decisions about their Content Management System investment and in the successful deployment of these systems.

User Interface Design

Technology. Content. Human behavior. Harmonize them, and you have a virtual symphony. Ignore them, and you have a disaster. We can tune your existing site or create a new one to deliver a clean, cohesive, well designed, and powerful electronic presence.

User Interface Design

Have you ever been on a web site and thought to yourself that was a nice experience? Everything was where it should be almost as if someone was anticipating your next move. There are so many web sites out there written very well technically or designed with beautiful interfaces. But when you mix these attributes with thoughtful Human Factors Engineering the result is magical. At Avantia, we start with your information architecture. We layout your logic flows and do iterations with your expert users even before we write code. We also have expertise on-staff with graphic design skills so that we marry all three attributes into a beautiful, well designed and cohesive web site. We can work with you to improve your existing site(s) or fold this expertise into your next new web development project.
