aliveworld.com for Aliveware, Ltd.
We contracted with Six Fish to deliver aliveworld.com. The Aliveworld 1.0 project is extremely ambitious with many customer requirements from a dozen organizations. Under their guidance, we were able to finally realize our dream. I can without hesitation recommend Six Fish for their integrity, commitment and perseverance. I'm convinced no other partner could have delivered aliveworld.com with us. -- Mark Feenstra, CEO Aliveware, Ltd.
aliveworld.com is a comprehensive platform for people who want to make meaningful changes in their lives. It provides tools to manage your change program, an intelligent support system of peers and mentors and professionally produced guides from leaders in personal growth fields.
Furthermore, aliveworld.com includes a suite of publication tools for change organizations to create multimedia-rich presentations tied closely to a step-by-step workbook. These Aliveguides are sold in the aliveword.com store and work with the online toolset.
aliveworld.com is a case study in scale. It tips the scale on virtually every metric. Development teams as large as 20 people in 5 different time zones. Long planning and release cycles with 4 releases in 3 years. Dozens of clients from content producers (personal growth organizations) to online community organizers to paying customers.
Six Fish was able to manage multiple teams and clients, ultimately directing them to a released product -- a goal that eluded two previous vendors.
aliveworld.com was built on Microsoft's .NET web application platform. It is a suite of applications. The Practice Manager, Calendar, Aliveguide Player and Aliveguide Studio are custom applications built from ground up utilizing modern AJAX development techniques. Telligent's Community Server is used to provide forum, blogging and social networking features.
The depth of the aliveworld.com feature set can only truly be appreciated by using the site and its Aliveguides. As a case study, it represents the scale of project Six Fish has delivered.
