Here are some examples of production low-code systems we’ve built for our customers using the Skyve enterprise platform.
If you have an example system you’ve built, we would love to hear from you and add it to this list.
Brief: Create a digital platform to support the planning, education, engagement, collaboration and information management of their bid leading to economic opportunities for the region.
World Heritage Bid - Digital Knowledge Bank
The Mt Lofty Range World Heritage Bid consortium require a digital platform to support the planning, education, engagement, collaboration and information management of their bid leading to economic opportunities for the region. We created a platform to collate and collaborate on bid materials amongst different city councils, with a custom notification system (via Slack or email) users could subscribe to for updates. The system also provided a custom REST API to share geocoded heritage material with the bids public facing website.
Brief: Migrate and enhance an Access application into a complete modern web application.
Professional Learning System
Using Skyve’s Wildcat conversion tool, we converted and migrated an existing Microsoft Access system to allow teachers to submit professional learning applications to senior management for approval. The application managed budgets across faculties and provides custom dashboards for teachers, head teachers and senior executives.
Brief: Implant Billing is an important part of surgery support for the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, ensuring the hospital correctly recovers the costs of implants and consumables from insurers and other agencies.
Implant Billing System
Implant Billing is an important part of surgery support for the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, ensuring the hospital correctly recovers the costs of implants and consumables from insurers and other agencies. The legacy system at the old Royal Adelaide Hospital responsible for billing surgical implants was not migrated when the new Royal Adelaide Hospital was opened in September last year, and a new system was required. A new Skyve application was built and put into production in 6 weeks by 1.5 developers. The application is responsible for importing data from the corporate financial system, facilitating data entry of paper records of the surgeries, and exporting to the patient administration system for billing. The Implant Billing System at health is now live and generating invoices through EPAS.
Brief: 6.25 hours for a complete cycle including data migration, conversion and deployment live - accessible on mobile devices.
Same Day App
6.25 hour turn around from concept to live
Living Choice Retirement Villages required a simple application to help manage contract and delivery timings for construction projects, to help ensure they met agreed schedules.
Data was provided to us in the form of a muti-sheet Excel workbook, but multi-user and mobile device access was required so managers could collaborate and update information.
We performed a rapid conversion of the Excel workbook to a web application, with full security, activity auditing, reports, and accessible on mobile devices.
The complete cycle, including data migration, was converted and deployed - accessible on their own mobile devices in 6.25 hours, with the project going live after another 10 hours of refinement and additional data migration.
Brief: Managing the complex problem of supporting the move of an entire organisation to a new location, facilities and new organisational structure.
Configuration Engine - New Royal Adelaide Hospital (nRAH)
The transition to the new hospital, South Australia's largest infrastructure project and reportedly the 7th most expensive building in the world (most-expensive-buildings), means managing how more than 15,000 hospital staff 4,000 devices, medical equipment, phones, furniture, computers, software and network accounts will be allocated and configured.
The problem is acutely complex, as transition needs to take account of capability dependencies while avoiding or reducing interruption to essential hospital services.
Along with combining interactive floor-plans to allow staff to allocate people to equipment, phone numbers and building access, the system will assign network printers based on proximity, visualise telephone "hunt" groups, validate building provisions in the proposed design and support the transition of a wide range of other aspects of hospital configuration.
The project uses out-of-the-box capabilities of the Skyve enterprise platform, combining sophisticated hierarchical data traversal with user-friendly drag-drop allocation to the floor-plan, along with powerful content and data management - all of which minimises the opportunities for errors and reduces costs and difficulties of the eventual move.
The key aim of minimising downtime for essential services will be supported by sophisticated path-finding analysis and constraint optimisation - used to create the moving plan and manifests for the relocation.
The project is supported by us but developed in-house, with the team well placed to take maximum advantage of corporate knowledge and potential issues. Senior developers were up-skilled to the new technology with an intensive customised training course and quickly gained familiarity and proficiency with the new technology and approach.

Brief: Rapid data migration of >100m rows of emergency services levy data.
Legacy Taxation System Renewal
The Department of Treasure and Finance (DTF), SA, have transitioned Emergency Services Levy data from legacy proprietary technology to the open-source Skyve enterprise platform as part of a program of legacy system renewal.
The ESL transition alone has already saved the department significant sums and will continue to do so over a number of years, as the new system expands over time to include all legacy back-office data.
The legacy system, along with over 100m rows of ESL data was transitioned using Skyve’s unique automated rapid-conversion capability, which allows developers to iterate and refine system and data migration.
The ESL migration and conversion project took just 6 weeks to develop from concept to production, enabled by our unique rapid capabilities, our experience in agile development and the extensive business knowledge of Department Staff.
We assisted the Department's own developers and analysts, demonstrating how the technology can be quickly adopted in-house, and how our high-level APIs and "configuration over code" approach enables internal support and development as the project is refined and enlarged.
Brief: Mobile student mass discussion tool for universities.
Chatterbox - anonymous BYOD discussion platform
An online discussion tool called Chatterbox to be used by Australian and New Zealand Veterinary Schools, built using the Skyve enterprise platform.
Professor Paul McGreevy, Faculty of Veterinary Science, Sydney University said "I am totally blown away with the insight, professionalism, care and enthusiasm that Biz Hub brought to this project. We were very lucky to have them on board."
Sponsored by Sydney University and developed by Biz Hub Australia, Chatterbox is a BYOD/mobile platform for mass discussion and debate and combines instant messaging with analysis tools and reports, in an anonymised and moderated space.
Chatterbox takes advantage of Skyve's enormous range of out-of-the-box capabilities like asynchronous messaging along with data intensive search, reporting and unique automatic mobile rendering technology.

Brief: Rapid conversion of multiple systems to an integrated solution.
Rapid System Conversion - South Australian Shellfish Quality Assurance Program (SASQAP)
The project converted 3 existing legacy systems which supported laboratory sample testing for the SASQAP group at Port Lincoln - as part of Food Safety and Biosecurity for South Australia. The converted system combines 3 capability modules into a single solution, with shared system, user and contact management.
Commencing with automatic rapid conversion from Microsoft Access, the laboratory support system was refined, including significant data cleansing and remodelling, to support scalable multi-user access.The entire project was managed, developed and deployed remotely by Biz Hub and PIRSA internal staff.
The South Australian industry depends on the highest levels of accuracy for its ongoing reputation as a provider of top-quality and safe seafood around the world and Biz Hub's unique automated conversion capability, combined with the Skyve enterprise platform, allowed the development of a high-quality solution, significantly increasing the capability and quality of laboratory recording and statistical analysis.
The transition to Skyve also meant a significant reduction in the amount of application code to be managed, with support in-housed by PIRSA.
The solution is a secure Web 2.0 JavaEE application, served by JBoss 7 on a Windows 2008 Server with MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Database, and supports a range of browsers including Chrome, IE, Firefox and Safari.
Brief: Conversion and enhancement of an industry management and engagement tool for Vinehealth Australia.
Grape Industry Kiosk – Industry management and engagement
Vinehealth Australia manages vineyard grower, land-holding and planting information as part of their core responsibility of monitoring the health of vines in South Australia.
This project required conversion of a legacy application and data using Biz Hub's automated conversion capability and then extension to include a Grower Kiosk, reducing costs of compliance for South Australia’s approximately 3500 Vineyard owners and operators and increasing the efficiency Vinehealth.
The Kiosk enables Growers to interact directly with Vinehealth, including online submission of returns and the ability to update vineyard map information directly, download invoices, payment history or update contact details for Vineyard owners and operators.
For a relatively small organisation like Vinehealth, the ability to offer secure best-practice engagement and data management capability such as this would have been a massive undertaking, without access to the Skyve enterprise platform. Direct online engagement has become a pseudo standard for dealing with a large client base and offers significant cost and time advantages over paper-based compliance systems often used by Government and statutory bodies.
Developed by Biz Hub, the solution is a secure Web 2.0 JavaEE application, served by JBoss 7 on a Windows 2008 Server with MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Database, and supports a range of browsers and devices.
Brief: A rapid conversion of a suite of 18 disparate systems including MS Access, SQL Server stored procedures, VB6, C#.NET, VB.NET and MS Excel into a single integrated and consolidated Web application.
Grants Processing System
Faced with a transition to a Windows 7 based Standard Operating Environment (SOE), the ARC took advantage of Skyve’s rapid conversion capability and the Skyve enterprise platform to create the Grants Processing System, bypassing an otherwise costly and difficult transition.
Over 2m rows of data required significant cleansing, along with integration and consolidation of a wide range of previous approaches including SQL Server stored procedures, VB6, Microsoft Access, VB.NET, C#.NET and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and macros.
The originating system consisted of 153 tables, 84 forms, and 76 reports/sub-reports and held approximately 2.1 million data rows. The maintained code-base consisted of 23,000 lines of SQL views, stored procedures and functions (not including table and index creation scripts etc), and 21,500 lines of VB/VBA and C# and VB.NET code with a total of 615 application source files and artefacts.
Conversion resulted in an application which met or exceeded the existing capability with only 8,300 lines of Java business code, only 300 lines of SQL views and functions. The majority of the application was defined in human-readable metadata embodying the business model and concepts rather than programming code, and the entire application was organised in only 140 source files.
Tony Andersen, CIO at ARC said the solution “...has proven to be a stable and reliable platform for our finance critical applications and has allowed us to rapidly transition from disparate legacy technologies..." and had been "...well received by both our Business and Finance user community.”
The resulting transition solution was delivered on time and budget, managing payments of over $900m annually to Australian Universities and research organisations, and total active grant funding of over $3.2b and operated successfully for over 5 years while an enterprise-wide transition to newer technologies and approaches could be completed.
GPS easily exceeded the capabilities of the previous systems and resulting in improved data accuracy and lower maintenance effort, all without interruption to any of the monthly payment rounds.
GPS supported ARC staff to manage organisation and person details and funding and payment authorisations for each research project administered under the ARC Act.
GPS integrated with Active Directory to provide single sign-on, running on Windows 2008 virtual servers with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database.
