Aligned Development Strategies, Inc. (ADSI) is certified not only for it’s quality in process (CMMI Level 3) and work (8 (a) STARS II), but also as a Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) and Minority Business Enterprise (MBE). As an SDB and MBE, ADSI recognizes the need for the traditionally underrepresented to participate in the economy at all levels. ADSI provides top-notch management consulting and IT services that are integrally related to our skills as software engineers. Looking toward the future of this industry, we see that it is critically important that ADSI works to bring state-of-the-art technical skills to people from traditionally underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds as these communities often lack access to quality training and jobs. At ADSI we pride ourselves on our commitment to technical skills training both in the U.S. and in international locales such as the Caribbean. We strive to administer dependable services with integrity, which for us must include an aspect of social responsibility.
