Since not all notable sites receive recognition as a winner due to the numerous entries received, we also list honorable mentions. We wanted these sites to receive recognition for their use of CodeCharge Studio.


Company: Virginia Department of Transportation
Application: Virginia Department of Transportation Dashboard
Technology: ASP.NET, MS SQL Server

The Virginia Department of Transportation turned to CodeCharge Studio to develop its Dashboard Version 2.0. Recognized by many as a front-runner in government accountability, the Dashboard keeps managers and citizens informed of VDOT's performance in the core areas of planning, building, operating, and maintaining roads. The Dashboard aggregates data from over a dozen source systems to give an integrated perspective on the agency as a whole. The Dashboard also allows users to drill down and filter data to identify specific performance problems.

The Dashboard makes extensive use of CodeCharge Studio's powerful and easy to use Grid control to display data and allow users to sort and filter data. Very little custom coding was used and the result was an application that was easy to change as requirements evolved and remains simple to maintain. The Dashboard is integrated with Microsoft's SQL Server Reporting Services and leverages a simple web service to provide secure data layer communication through the firewall.
