ITCSSG’s Custom Application Development practice focuses on the architectural and development expertise of our industry-recognized software engineers by delivering systems that solve our customers’ unique business problems.
ITCSSG's Custom Application Development teams are unique in the industry, because a large percentage of our team members are established technology authors and community leaders. Instead of relying on a small group of senior developers and supplementing them with average talent, we built a team that consists of skilled thought leaders and experienced software engineers. Our staff includes consultants with industry-leading experience and a track record of success developing Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs), Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) and rich desktop applications.
ITCSSG builds flexible systems tailored to your needs while leveraging our collective expertise. Rather than prescribe a specific architecture or toolset that must be followed for all solutions, we start with a series of architectural considerations that make certain all issues are properly addressed. In addition, ITCSSG uses specialized tools and class libraries for speeding the development effort.
ITCSSG consultants have expert-level knowledge in every Microsoft development tool and platform. Our broad knowledge of development techniques enables us to leverage a wide range of the latest Microsoft technologies, yet provide expertise that extends beyond traditional custom software development.
As early adopters and industry thought leaders, ITCSSG developers and consultants are constantly evaluating new and upcoming technology. We participate in product review sessions at the Microsoft campus and are often called upon by Microsoft to lead training events. As a result, you are ensured a trusted, proven, Microsoft partner that guarantees optimal solutions.
When necessary, ITCSSG works with value-added partners to deliver the best possible solutions for client needs. Our partnerships are based on one over-arching philosophy – put client needs first and perform at the highest level of competence and integrity. We also complement and extend your own development and IT teams. And, it's not just about augmentation. We will mentor and guide your own staff, as necessary.
ITCSSG leverages a variety of Microsoft development solutions, as well as other technologies, to help our clients create powerful applications quickly and effectively and span any platform or device. The technologies and architectures we employ include (but are not limited to):
Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2010 helps us dramatically increase developer productivity while developing new business solutions for the web and Windows platforms. Visual Studio .NET 2010 is the only development environment built from the ground up to enable integration through XML web services. By allowing applications to share data over the Internet, XML web services enable developers to assemble applications from new and existing code, regardless of platform, programming language or object model.
A new innovation in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2008 was the introduction of LINQ (Language Integrated Query). Using this technology, we are able to use one model for querying data from many sources, be it in a database, XML data or even business objects. Having a single model for any query or data manipulation means faster development and fewer design constraints.
ITCSSG is also a leader in building rich desktop applications. Microsoft Office has set a high bar for how applications should look and function on the desktop. Using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2010 and the latest techniques in modular software design, we build rich desktop applications that can take full advantage of today’s powerful desktop computers.
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 allows for development of connected applications, networks and web services. Windows Server 2008 R2 provides a secure IT infrastructure and application platform for quickly building connected applications and information worker infrastructures that enhance communication and enable anytime, anywhere collaboration.
The Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 platform also have a new virtualization technology called Hyper-V 2008 R2 and VM Ware, which allows one server to host multiple virtual server environments, allowing you to maximize your hardware investment while you scale up. Our consultants are intimately familiar with virtualization, as they all use virtual servers every day to mimic our customer’s production environments while creating solutions for them.
ITCSSG also delivers the technologies, tools and applications for a wide range of eCommerce and content management solutions.
