– SVP Marketing & Business Development of Online Identity Service
EAI makes product launches happen through both its development teams and its business resources. We work with multiple early-stage startups as well as innovation groups within our Fortune 500 clients’ organizations to get off the ground, position a new product or service, or prepare for the next major release. Some of the many ways in which we help produce include:
- Core project, idea & development incubation with high levels of resource and even capital investment
- Iterative Concept Ideation to identify ideal product / market approach
- Rapid development of Working Prototypes to assist in concept validation & internal or external venture capital acquisition
- Accelerated time-to-market through parallel prototype / production efforts
As an organizational culture, EAI Technologies continues to search for innovative products/trends. Part of that process involves investing our own time and resources into new development and staying in touch with the market.
One of the key ways we do this involves experimenting with the latest open source technologies or API releases from companies such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, Apple or Uber ; and application development technologies such as in the Java and Microsoft worlds, and hosting services such as AWS, Azure and more.
We leverage these new skills in a variety of ways: through direct Ventures, home-grown platforms which we leverage for our clients, and sample products or web services through which we are able to stay hands on with new ways to help our customers.
