Application Development

Accelerating innovation to maximize application performance

With more than 30 years supporting federal IT missions, Empower AI understands the challenges agency leaders face, from modernizing legacy infrastructure to developing scalable, secure and reliable applications that provide insights and efficiencies to achieve the mission.


Our “ready-on-day-one” philosophy means that our team of developers, analysts, testers and subject matter experts work together with each agency to customize solutions for critical needs, and support each agency project to make them more effective. And with security vulnerabilities always in mind, our focus on zero-trust methodology and the latest innovations is ever-present through all phases of development and delivery.
