-by Al Jacques
All software projects should include an architectural plan. Whether you can afford to perform this work before your project is launched into development, or if you have come upon the rocks of unplanned disasters, a solid plan going forward is the basis for completing any software project.

But does it provide the use of the system that your customers want to see? We can help you create a usable software architecture at any stage of your project.
