Company Profile

Biz Hub Australia is an R&D company, creating a range of technology to solve real problems in extraordinary ways.

We build high-quality enterprise solutions – using mobile devices and spatial concepts as core capabilities – and we sponsor the Skyve open-source high-performing low-code enterprise platform (www.skyve.org) which embodies our Capability First approach.

What we do

We build custom solutions using the Skyve low-code enterprise platform.

With a pre-integrated capability set covering a wide range of market-leading open-source technology, we build apps with only small amounts of code that automatically render for devices and platforms, giving you the freedom to explore rich capability without vendor or technology lock-in and the ability to exit when you need to.

How we do it

We use the latest market leading open-source packages, in an integrated platform, that ensures you have access to powerful capability from the first iteration.

We apply genuinely agile development methodology to give you the flexibility to develop your solution as you use it.

Take advantage of a quality local supplier:

  • Fully insured
  • Open standards
  • Platform independence
  • Any ODBC compliant database
  • Human readable formats
  • Best practice security and information management, and
  • Australian owned and locally supported

History

Directors Rob Brown and Mike Sands met while working on various R&D projects for Defence, including prototyping NATO interoperability and the first man-portable (i.e. mobile) battlespace management system for the Australian Army.

Faced with limited budgets and enormous capability requirements we began to consider alternative approaches to software development and soon after, the Skyve Capability First methodology was created.

Since incorporating in 2006, we’ve continued to apply and develop this approach for a range of Government organisations with increasing sophistication and breadth.

In Aug 2014, Skyve was open-sourced as a mature high-performance low-code enterprise platform and is now the basis for a range of new technology concepts and applications.
