CollabIT ACT is an engagement and business development initiative that links small and medium-sized companies with multinational corporations and other stakeholders in the ICT sector. CollabIT ACT is designed to assist companies to establish partnerships with other SME companies, to forge alliances with MNCs, and to build reputation with government CIOs. CollabIT is a joint initiative of the ACT Government and the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) and is delivered under contract by the AIIA.
Funding for this project was provided by Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education, the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) and ACT Government.
The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) required the development of a Collaboration System for the CollabIT ACT program. The purpose of the project was to provide the IT industry with an online platform for greater collaboration between Small to Medium Enterprises, Multi-National Corporations and Government agencies.
The platform will collect information about the capabilities and capacities of businesses in the ICT industry and distribute this information to industry stakeholders. The platform will act as a business directory with some social functionality built in.
Infinite used the following services in delivering the Collaboration Portal:
- Developed with clear business requirements, developed by Crystal Approach
- Application built Symfony2 PHP Framework
- Test driven development
- Integration into Funnelback hosted search services
- Extensive testing around security and performance
- Managed Cloud Hosting
Infinite worked collaboratively with Crystal Approach and Funnelback to deliver an enterprise web application using the Symfony2 Framework. The site was successfully launched by Minister Andrew Barr at the AIIA Canberra Managers Forum, on 22 June 2012. The site has more than 90 validated businesses and 30 case studies, delivering the initial identified business outcome on a fast, reliable and secure platform.
