Beginning Business @ start-up company FocusData

The department developed, sold and serviced different dynamic Internet- and Intranet solutions (Order Repair Tracking, Technical Communities and more.). Daniel faced many management and technical challenges at FocusData that helped develop the skills he uses today.
Increasing business efficacy with The KiJaKa Group
Following his studies, Daniel contracted himself to The KiJaKa Group, which was an international retail corporation and one of Scandinavia’s largest distributors of mobile phones and telefaxes. At KiJaKa, Daniel worked as system architect, creating and deploying a large-scale Intranet infrastructure.
Spotting opportunities at CMS vendor Open Market, Inc.
After 6 months at KiJaKa of analysis, creation, deployment and testing the KiJaKa Intranet, Daniel relocated to The Netherlands to take up a position at the American Internet software company Open Market, Inc. Open Market was creating J2EE content-centric eBusiness applications (CMS)
For many months, Daniel travelled around Europe and Africa, integrating and teaching the Open Market product platform to the company’s Business Partners. This was an adventure that extensively enhanced Daniels technical skills, his way of solving complex business needs, -working under changing environments and the way he was creating- and applying to time- and project plans.
Evangelising and teaching Content Management with Open Market
The last year before moving to Australia, Daniel worked as Technology Officer in the International Research and Development Team at Open Market. His responsibilities were, among others, to provide the European and Asian operations with technological, architectural and product assistance and to introduce new technologies to the Dutch and northern European customers and business partners.
Creating Extended Enterprises with divine
In 2001, Open Market was bought by the American software-company divine, inc. (together with 20+ other dot com businesses). The idea of this new company was to offer complete solutions for corporations to enhance interaction and collaboration efforts with customers and partners and create the “Extended Enterprise”. Daniel was still involved with the Content Management software from old Open Market. He relocated with his wife to Australia where he then helped grow the local divine office.
Future Tense Solutions – “The Future of Business”
During the beginning of 2003, divine, inc. and its German holding company (controlling divine Australia) got into serious financial trouble (due to the purchase of RoweCom). The two executive directors of divine Australia and Daniel then obtained the exclusive rights to sell and support the Content Server Enterprise CM platform throughout Australia and New Zealand. They created a privately held company Future Tense Solutions Pty Ltd which would specialise in Enterprise Web Content Management consulting. The company operated successfully for over 4 years with presence in the 3 major states of Australia, implementing innovative websites for leading companies within the retail, finance and entertainment industries. Daniel was lead architect and engagement manager on most of the implementations, spending much time travelling in and around Sydney and Melbourne, working with the different partners and clients.
Web Experience Management with FatWire
In late 2008, FatWire Software acquired Future Tense Solutions. Daniel Iversen currently works with FatWire, continuing the success where Future Tense Solutions left off, delivering Web Experience Management (WEM) solutions to companies throughout Australia with his team of consultants and through a strong implementation partner network.
