Services

  • Design Technology

    The word “design” is multi-faceted with multiple meanings. Digital design begins with a foundation of planning for how best to anticipate and serve the user. Just like building a house, online sites, products, and applications require planning and technical architecture: which elements are foundational, which elements are evolutionary, and which elements are intended for frequent changes? DATA begins each project confirming our understanding of the user and how the user can best access and use the information being presented.

  • Graphic Design

    Compelling graphic design is the unique creative factor in each development company. Designers can help capture a “user-moment” and convert an impulse into positive action. Active, recurring use coupled with growth in the number of active users is one definition of design success. Design continues to measure and drive user trends delivering fresh content to established and evolving user preferences. DATA’s experienced, Emmy Award winning design team is technically innovative and abundantly creative.

  • Web

    DATA's expertise in site and web application software development has a long and successful history that has kept pace with the increasing velocity of digital technology. Our successes lie in the team’s love and knowledge of technical innovation and advancement carefully navigating the choices that best fit the best solution.

  • Mobile

    DATA’s development team is skilled in digital creation for phones, tablets, and new devices as they arrive in the marketplace. Whether iOS, Windows, Android, or platform agnostic, successful deployment of well-designed and well-executed applications delivers content into users' hands quickly.

  • Animation

    Computer animation’s images are worth the 1000 words of explanation when clarifying information such as medical procedures, engineering structures, or innovative ideas for new inventions. Animated graphics illustrate the effective use of systems, processes, new environments or information; viewers are able to comprehend quickly.

  • Training

    DATA’s Learning Management System (LMS) is the result of years of developing customized teaching programs allowing students and teachers to access the material and each other easily and quickly. There are no limits to what can be taught, what can be learned, and what can be tested and evaluated. Lessons can be saved, archived, submitted for passing grades or certifications; with appropriate tools, lessons can also be a singular, organized way to learn a new skill or measure performance in a new activity.

Industries

  • Government

    Government clients are integral to DATA’s business. We have 22 years of experience completing government contracts with government prime contractors and with government clients. Our interactive animation and programming work in conjunction with our video partner, Ferrari Films, has been recognized with multiple awards by the U.S. Air Force, other government agencies, and media organizations. (http://www.cemm.org/The-CEMM/Awards.aspx)

  • Non-Profits

    DATA’s success with non-profits has required a special and concerted effort to organize and manage multiple stakeholders, listening carefully to various ideas and goals from pragmatic executives as well as enthusiastic staffers and supporters.

    The project goal, regardless of the industry, is excellence in technical/creative development; using Kentico’s CMS as a development framework, DATA has been able to provide a consolidated, single-solution approach to a wide variety of feature sets. Non-profits, as well as small-to-mid-size businesses, can use the same efficient and cost effective approach which can, in other instances, require multiple independent and expensive solutions such as CRM, LMS, and Marketing Automation.

    Meeting and extending the project goal of excellence to allow organizations to easily manage and “own” their own content using our Kentico content management development framework has created another win/win for clients and for DATA.

  • Education

    Universities, colleges, high schools, middle and grade schools are using online programs and applications to teach, to inform, and to measure the effectiveness of their various efforts to reach students and the community at large. DATA’s experience in developing educational programs is the heart of our business and includes each of the industries in this section of our website. Our success has been to listen, to advise, to plan, and to develop programs that make use of interactive, visual content for ease of understanding by the viewer who can easily respond to the programs’ goals.

  • Healthcare

    Medical animation as well as interactive mobile applications have been the hallmarks of DATA’s medical and healthcare sites and programs. Our clients include universities, government agencies, and private practice doctors and clinics. Topics have included skin cancer, pregnancy, eye surgery, cardiology, knee arthroscopy, men’s health, women’s health, colon health, asthma, hearing, orthopedic injury and prevention, diabetes, and aids. Our programs have received multiple awards and some have appeared on Discovery Channel.

  • Transportation

    Transportation projects are aided exponentially using accurate specifications for 3D-computer animation as part of a transportation project plan. DATA has participated in virtual highway restructuring, airline concourse construction, airport expansion, new funicular rail systems, and virtual bus-and-rail systems modeling using composite video and “real” bus line footage to test the feasibility of an integrated system. Using well-engineered drawings, we’ve even tested the viability of new aerospace delivery systems in a reusable launch vehicle.

  • Architecture

    A revealing, cost-saving scenario occurred when architects for one of the concourses at the then new Denver International Airport were able to see carpet, podiums, columns, and light throughout the day in a virtual setting. The carpet was too busy and produced a sense of vertigo; the podiums were too tall by a few inches; the best column surface choice was stainless steel; and daylight was able to be managed better with better window design. The cost savings for architectural projects using 3D-computer animation is noteworthy. In the case of the airport concourse, savings from not having to relay carpet, re-tool podiums, re-surface columns, or redesign windows during construction were in seven figures.

    Other advantages using new visual technology allows prospective owners to see the view from various floors in new, unconstructed apartment or condo buildings. Using virtual cameras or, in some cases, real cameras mounted on drones, 360 views at variable heights can be added to a floor plan to make choosing a location, location, location easier and more fun.

  • Entertainment

    The development team at DATA includes designers, animators, programmers, project managers, and ops people. Each member of the team admires and enjoys YouTube videos, movies, and music. We’re able to create some of our own unique entertainment in 3D animation and do so each year during the holidays as gifts to our families, our friends, and our clients. We have projects on the back-burner that we’ll be able to launch soon.

    In the meantime, here’s a re-run of some entertainment from the past.
