A new kind of company for a new kind of world

Accelerating software and AI to enhance the enterprise

Our lives – and work – are getting a software upgrade. Supply chain predictability. Virtual healthcare. Just-in-time retail. Trusted financial services. Seamless extended reality experiences. Work from, well, anywhere. Our new expectations of technology are creating new market truths. The unknowns outweigh the knowns. But what we do know is: we will not revert to the old normal.

Welcome to the code economy

Business and technology leaders are facing an enormous wave of value creation. Cloud, ubiquitous Wi-Fi, low-cost sensors, artificial intelligence systems, and platforms for nearly every work process, have all been invented – they exist – but they have yet to be fully deployed.

The next phase of our revolution is software engineering at scale.

It’s time to take the new systems, processes, and experiences and apply them to our lives in ways that could only be imagined by sci-fi authors and futurists.

At Ascendion, we know the time for this is now.

It’s time to accelerate digital innovation

Leaders today already know that digital innovation, including advanced AI, is the key to unlocking huge value for the future of nearly every industry.

Ascendion is already engineering and deploying advanced AI systems. And we’ve been doing it for a few years already. The Ascendion AVA engineering platform uses advanced AI to shape how we practice software engineering and the impact we deliver to clients. We see AI as enhancing the enterprise, boosting productivity, and embracing innovation in a way that fits business. We know the engine of progress is the makers of the world. The engineers, designers, and coders inventing and applying new technologies are the true heroes.

But the risks associated with building and improving software – whether AI systems, cloud platforms, or data architecture – are strangling the potential of many organizations.

Built differently to engineer the next

Ascendion turns innovation risk on its head. Where there was baggage from the old ways of working, we see the way forward.
