The ADC will work with you throughout the development lifecycle from inception to delivery. They can help you select the best application architecture or review your proposed designs. They can help your people to develop new technical skills that help to improve your productivity and code quality. They can conduct code reviews or help to troubleshoot and solve hard to find software bugs.
