From inception, this site went live in 3 weeks and 3 days. It is the first site of its kind on the Internet, where users can contribute reviews and quantifiable ratings (for many criteria) for the supplements they have taken, and the site aggregates this data and makes it available for viewing and searching. It also incorporates a forum where each product has a dedicated topic for its discussion. The administrative interface is very well-developed, and makes it a breeze to publish new products and reviews. SubstanceReviews.com is what would be a called a Web 2.0 site by many people; it was designed from the ground up with community involvement in mind.
This site is built on the same technology and code base of SubstanceReviews.com. It was built and went live in 2 days. It has been subject to very high praise in the table tennis community.
From inception, this state-of-the-art site went live within 2 weeks. It is optimized for the search engines, and connects Enamel Dental Centre with patients in their geographic area.
Business Driver consultants developed the
integration between the Vignette Content Management System and IBM
WebSphere Commerce Suite. This became part of the standard
The RadioShack.ca eCommerce Web site was originally
built by Business Driver consultants. The project was
used by Microsoft as a showcase of fast development
using SiteServer Commerce.
Business Driver designed and developed the Electronic Channels
technology for DMDS, the music distribution application
that was deployed at EMI, Sony and Virgin Music and a
number of radio stations across Canada. DMDS
provides fast and secure delivery of digital assets
via the Web. It features an elaborated security model,
workflow, and Digital Rights Management (DRM).
Business Driver developed a .NET Web Service that connects
to a Process Historian Database and retrieves historical
sensor data. The Web Service integrates with the existing
application that manages the environmental data for
the chemical plants
Engineering.com had a complex frames-based site
containing thousands of pages of static content.
Although they were using style sheets to control the
overall look and feel of the site to some extent,
they could not change other fundamental aspects of
the pages without significant effort.
Business Driver performed detailed analyses of the
structure and content of the sites, determined the
workflows necessary for the content to be published
efficiently, and architected and built a Vignette-based content
management solution. The result was that content
authors can update the sites directly in a secure,
word processor-like manner, share content between
sites, and let their business processes determine who
can review the content before it goes live.
Business Driver consultants developed several
internal systems for GlaxoSmithKline's Corporate IT
- A Web-based administration module for the
Program Development and Management process.
- A system to model the entry of generic drugs in
the marketplace and their impact on the sales of
Glaxo Wellcome's products. This model also had
the ability to create "what-if" scenarios where
marketing managers could alter various market
conditions (such as launch time of the generic or
changing the price of Glaxo Wellcome's products)
and compare the various scenarios.
- A Web-based time tracking system, with
approval, reporting, and invoicing components.
Business Driver consultants architected and developed
the Syllabus Manager, a Vignette-based Web application that allows
course instructors to create and manage course calendars,
and that integrates with the larger Web Publishing System
used by Pearson.

enterprise-wide Content Management solution
based on the Vignette platform:
- Consolidation of hardware and savings on
software licensing fees by eliminating
duplication of effort and reducing the set of
technologies that needed support.
- Well-defined learning curve for developers.
- The content authors use a single set of tools in
order to create and manage content for any part
of the corporate Web presence. The use of WYSIWYG
editing tools allows business people to manage
the content without resorting to the help of the Web
- Content and business logic sharing. Every
content item and every template developed within
the new platform is stored in the common
repository. As a result, any element that was
developed for one Web site can be reused in
another site by just "plugging" it in. Such a high
degree of reuse further reduces the time for developing a
new Web site.
Veredex Logistics is a software and Internet
logistics technology supplier to North
American-based companies. Business Driver
consultants developed much of the enterprise data
model of the Logistics Engine. Business Driver
developed high level and detailed UML diagrams
specifying which attributes the software
components would contain and how they would
interact with other components, then implemented
the software in cooperation with Veredex staff
using Java and JSP in a J2EE environment.
