Founded in 2000, Integration Architects is an IT solutions and staffing consulting firm based in Minneapolis, MN. Our team of software technologists have a proven track record of delivering successful solutions for our client. We are a certified Small Business Enterprise and were recently recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the country. We are an approved vendor for numerous government and private sector clients. The quality and value of our work is evidenced by the repeat engagements we have with our clients.
Innovative Technology Solutions
New and innovative technology solutions don’t have to be disruptive to positively impact your government’s operations and substantially improve the way you serve your constituents. We help our government clients implement revolutionary new ideas using incremental projects that focus on innovations while minimizing disruptions.
Government Agencies are currently being impacted by business opportunities and challenges from a series of information technology revolutions occurring simultaneously and interactively – Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud – with even more exciting innovations such as the Internet of Things on the way. Our business and technology strategists work with our clients to help them become early adopters of the newest technologies while mitigating risk.
Integration Architects has been focused on government-oriented solutions and services for its entire 16-year history. Our current business is split somewhat evenly between work that we perform on a project basis (where we are responsible for creating the deliverables) and a staff augmentation basis (where we are responsible for providing a high-quality consultant that works under the direction of our client). We plan to continue our growth strategy and success via the following roadmap.
- Integration Architects (IA) was recognized by Inc. Magazine as being in the top third of the 5000 fasting growing companies in the United States in 2015.
- IA is currently providing consulting and integration services across a broad range of clients, and has recently been selected by the MN Judicial Branch to develop two large scale web applications to support key business functions within the Branch.
- We are currently working with the Economic Gardening Program for 2016-17 to provide strategic information for our growth initiatives. https://economicgardeningmn1617.nationalcentereg.org/
Integration Architects is committed to the success of our clients by helping them optimize business processes and successfully share information between functions and with external trading partners. We do this by providing services based on our core values of:
Integrity – uncompromising honesty with clients and associates
Passion – genuine excitement and enthusiasm for our work
Skill – disciplined application of experience and technical expertise
