Enterprise Architecture

Adjuvant has extensive experience with government contracts working in multiple development life cycles. For example, Over the course of a 7 year project, Adjuvant provided Agile Software Development and information technology support (database support, web services, help-desk etc.) to furnish Active, Guard, and Reserve field recruiters an automated tool to create prospective Air Force (AF) enlistee application files for all recruiting accessions in officer, enlisted, and health professions. This project required Adjuvant to lead the software and web development work with the customer and vendors to not only plan and design modifications to the current system but also additional modules and web solutions to allow for new requirements where Adjuvant took the role of functional leads to ensure seamless transition among hardware, software, and communication technologies.
