Holocaust Museum - Come Join the Human Race
Custom Web Development

Our Mission
The mission of Holocaust Museum Houston is to promote awareness of the dangers of prejudice, hatred, and violence against the backdrop of the Holocaust, which claimed the lives of millions of Jews and other innocent victims. By fostering Holocaust remembrance, understanding, and education, the Museum will educate students as well as the general population about the uniqueness of that event and its ongoing lesson: that humankind must learn to live together in peace and harmony.

The Museum
Charged with educating students and the public about the dangers of prejudice and hatred in society, Holocaust Museum Houston opened its doors in March of 1996. Since that time, impassioned notes, poems, artwork, and other gifts, from school children and adults alike, attest to the life-changing thoughts generated by just one visit to this unique facility.


The Houston Endowment
Custom Application Development

Jesse and Mary Gibbs Jones understood that they would prosper only if their community thrived, and from the time they married in 1920 until they established Houston Endowment, Inc. in 1937, the couple donated more than $1 million to help establish and develop institutions and organizations that would nurture Houston's people and encourage the city's growth.

During 1938, Houston Endowment's first full year of operation, the foundation donated $14,687, of which $11,285 went to schools and colleges. Soon after World War II, Mr. Jones began transferring his businesses and buildings to Houston Endowment and by 1948, the foundation was contributing more than $200,000 each year to a variety of charitable organizations. At the time of Mr. Jones's death in 1956, Houston Endowment's Chairman Fred Heyne reported to a colleague, "Since its inception...we have assisted more than 4,000 students with their education through scholarships established in 57 colleges and universities. We have made total grants for all purposes in excess of $7,600,000."

By the mid 1950s, Houston Endowment owned many prominent buildings and businesses in Houston, Fort Worth and New York City. In response to the Tax Reform Act of 1969, the foundation began selling its businesses and buildings and investing the proceeds in securities. The sale of the Houston Chronicle to the Hearst Corporation in 1987 completed this process. Over the years, Houston Endowment's assets have grown to approximately $1.4 billion, enabling the foundation to donate more than $70 million annually to help fulfill the Joneses' vision of a healthy, vibrant community.

National Oilwell
Custom Application Development

Project:
IT Budget Tracking Application

Challenge
National Oilwell utilized a well-known enterprise resource planning (ERP) package for its budgeting functionality. However, the IT department was interested in creating a web-enabled budgeting package that was very simple to use and would allow the IT department to track budgets from appropriation through purchase order through goods receipt.

Solution
Liquid Development, and our partner Obsidian Technical Communications, worked with National Oilwell to develop web-based functionality to support its IT goal of simple budget tracking functionality available through a standard browser. We developed a detailed database map, project plan, and a look and feel for the site, including site layout and menu structure.

Results
Changes in the makeup of the NO team responsible for this project have altered the implementation plan somewhat. At this point, the application is under National Oilwell review, and we anxiously await its successful implementation.
