Thanks to the amazing work of our development team members on projects for clients including CCC and the Canadian Council for the Arts, we’ve been a Sitecore Certified Partner for over 2 years now. Recently, however, Scott Mulligan’s work on rethinking the integration of responsive design solutions within Sitecore’s unique adaptive capabilities have earned bv02 [...]
I’ve been reading and having a lot of conversations lately around digital strategy, big data, and how it applies to business. As someone who is passionate about cultural institutions and museums, and has worked with many of them over the years, I can’t help but think about these topics through the lens of culture: how does digital strategy influence the present and future for cultural organizations? Digital is relevant for cultural institutions, but the approach needs to shift given some of the unique facets of the cultural institution model and offerings.
There’s nothing we like more at bv02 than helping great clients launch successful digital projects. That’s why we’re so happy to see that Futurefunder.ca, a crowd-funding platform launched by Carleton University last month, is receiving so much positive attention from the university community and the media.

So new, in fact, that we had to create a technical solution to address some very specific issues we, and the industry, have had little chance to grapple with: an extremely remote Northern location, cameras that would be placed on a tower in the middle of an inlet and the need for a self-contained power source.
Visitors to the Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge get to experience a unique gathering of over 200 beluga whales, as they converge in the Cunningham Inlet to play and socialize. It’s an amazing thing to see, and we wanted to help people experience it, regardless of their location.
“Use GPS-enabled digital cameras to photograph Arctic wildlife 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle, and contribute to a growing online citizen science database.” Sounds like a pretty great adventure, or an excellent line in a job description, right? While it might be both, it’s also what a group of teens will be doing this summer at Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge with bv02’s support.
Analysts predict that internet usage on mobile devices will overtake that on desktop computers by 2014. That’s just two years away, and it’s a big shift. It raises questions for every industry that’s online today, which means it raises questions for every industry. How will mobile impact the way your customers, clients and stakeholders engage with, contribute to and evaluate your brand?
