Software development projects are often characterized by missed deadlines, budget overruns, poor quality, or quasi-permanent "work in progress". CAI reverses this paradigm by using repeatable, industry best practices accompanied by a management system that focuses on risk mitigation and on time completion of deliverables. CAI uses proven estimating techniques, incorporating continuous feedback on current development projects, to develop a roadmap for Application Development projects. We work with our client to develop a project plan aligned with business objectives and provide metrics on project status, issues, and milestones to ensure that projects are delivered on time, every time. Our change management process enables us to work with our customers to control changes in scope or schedule without risking quality.


By concentrating on process rather than on hourly fees, CAI ensures their clients do not gain in headaches what they've reduced in expenditures. Results realized through CAI's Application Development Services Include:

  • Reduced Costs: Following a consistent Best Practices methodology allows us to leverage experience and design patterns across projects, resulting in lower total cost.
  • Increased Effectiveness: Focusing on architecture and executing repeatable practices enhances the productivity of the team and their ability to complete the project on time, on budget.
  • Reduced Risk: Using a highly measured methodology for project management results in transparency throughout the project life cycle, reducing risk to all parties.


By leveraging CAI's experience in Application Development, the benefits you will achieve include:

  • Improved value in both cost and quality over existing off-shore or in-house development teams
  • Reduced risk through a real-time management and measurement system that focuses on-time completion of deliverables
