Digital transformation is changing the scenario of an organization’s operation. Systems, processes, workflow, and culture are all evaluated. This transformation affects each level of an organization and brings together data across areas to work together more effectively.

By taking advantage of workflow automation and advanced processing, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), companies can connect the dots on the customer journey in a way that wasn’t possible before.

Prominent Edge focuses on mission that creates digital solutions and products that enhance customer outcomes. It offers customers with high-grade technical solutions that enable them to transform complexity into clarity. The firm says, “You deserve better than a one-size-fits-all option. We are focused on one thing – creating industry-leading solutions. To the right is a brief list of where we excel.”

Web Development

Prominent Edge development team unifies world-class interface design competence with deep technical understanding so that it is easy to design and architect solutions that are both easy-to-use and highly scalable. The firm’s team is deeply knowledgeable and fluent in a wide range of front-end and back-end web technologies, constantly staying ahead of the present-day advances. Specific technical expertise includes programming languages (JavaScript, Python, Java, C/C++, C#, GoLang), front-end frameworks (React.js, AngularJS, Vue.js), server-side frameworks (Node.js, Django, Spring), and databases (Elasticsearch, SQL, Postgres, Mongo), and much more.

Mobile Applications and Mobile Computing

Building effective mobile solutions today requires expertise that spans an increasingly diverse landscape of mobile devices and technologies. The organization’s team understands the strengths and limitations of each platform, enabling it to deliver solutions that maximize functionality and usability across a heterogeneous array of iOS, Android, and Windows devices.

GPS-enabled mobile devices provide a natural and ideal platform for situational awareness and location-based services. Leveraging its core competency in geospatial solutions, its team is highly skilled at employing open source geospatial technologies to effectively target and provide spatially-relevant information to mobile users.

With smartphone performance beginning to rival that of laptops, pushing more and more functionality "to the edge" is becoming increasingly feasible and attractive. Whether for running analytics or for 3D simulation and gaming, Prominent Edge’s team understands how to effectively leverage the full performance potential of these devices.

DevOps and Automation

Cloud providers: The Prominent Edge team has expertise spanning Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), with the ability to leverage each of these platforms to align with your organization's unique goals and constraints. Prominent Edge employs technologies such as Kubernetes and Terraform to minimize dependencies on any specific cloud provider, thereby leaving you the flexibility to migrate should your technical requirements, budgetary constraints, or usage patterns change in the future.

Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD): Prominent Edge’s DevOps architects and engineers are experienced in building the robust infrastructure needed to support the Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline as an effective means to help rapidly test and deploy system enhancements and improvements, employing automated testing, build pipelines, backups, deployments, and security scanning. Without this infrastructure, a simple problem can exacerbate itself and snowball into a major outage, or worse. An automated devops pipeline pulls the source code, scans it for vulnerabilities, builds the artifacts, tests the software, and deploys it. The firm implements automated pipelines that suit your precise needs.

Digital Strategy

Digital strategy is more than planning the development, curation, and maintenance of digital content. It defines and communicates the very tone and character of a business, to engage specific user groups and achieve business objectives. Identifying this, the Prominent Edge design team creates a digital strategy specifically tailored to support your higher-level business objectives and goals.

The organization’s approach to Digital strategy employs strong Information Architecture (IA) principles. For the company, IA is both an art and a science that helps enable a well-thought-out application or website, providing categorization, schema, mapping, and navigation that is intuitive and user-friendly.

Data Visualization

Data visualization is both an art and a science where the goal is to communicate information clearly and succinctly to users. The results of even the best analytics can often be lost or misconstrued by poor or faulty visualizations.

Building effective visualizations that enable users to rapidly uncover anomalies and reach the right conclusions requires a special set of skills. At Prominent Edge, the team continuously strives to provide accurate and efficient data visualizations that enable users to interactively explore and navigate their data to understand trends, outliers, and patterns, in order to facilitate rapid insight and informed conclusions.

The Leader Upfront

Co-Founder and CEO of Prominent Edge, Syrus Mesdaghi has scaled a successful career highly concentrated in technical leadership roles since 1999. He was on the faculty of the Full Sail Game Design & Development program where he taught Artificial Intelligence and contributed to other courses while being heavily involved in numerous Gaming, Simulation, and Virtual Reality projects. He also authored multiple books and presented prototypes at conferences such as SIGGRAPH, JavaOne, and Game Developers Conference. Later on, Syrus took on the Principal Engineer role at a visual simulation company where his leadership and technical roles led to the successful launch of a real-time squad-based tactical decision making product used to train civilian and military forces of multiple nations.

He was also a key personnel and Technical Lead on the Army Geospatial Center's ROGUE/GeoSHAPE project from the proposal through execution and maintenance phases. He has served on the United Nation’s Open Geospatial and Software Engineering / Game Design & Development degree programs technical advisory boards, and steering committees for Artificial Intelligence standards. In 2014, Syrus leveraged his many years of leadership and technical expertise and co-founded Prominent Edge, establishing the organization as an industry leader in web, mobile, and geospatial solutions. 

“We solve your technical problems so that you can focus on your goals.”
