We present DARE's strategy delivering capabilities to application communities sharing data, archival services, computational resources and established working practices by mapping their work onto distributed and heterogeneous e-Infrastructures. We adopt abstractions presenting the concepts of concern for each group of experts to help them interact with precision while avoiding complexity. These abstract concepts are mapped to incrementally improved engineering solutions while preserving their semantics. Consequently, one of the expert groups we support well are the research developers meeting the evolving needs of application domains. Our platform simultaneously supports delivery of unchanging services and innovation, giving users control of when to adopt innovations. We deliver incentives to promote that adoption. The quality of collaborating communities' work is validated using pervasive persistent provenance services. We report initial experience with two applications: computational seismology and climate-impact analysis. We show the strategy is feasible and sustainable by introducing the architecture.
