Canberra-based startup Pivotal Analytics has applied data analytics techniques to the Commonwealth Gazette to help recruiters find public servants with the skills needed to fill vacancies in the private sector.
There's been a most unseemly stoush between Telstra and Vodafone in recent days over who has the fastest LTE (aka 4G) network. Pity, then, that Telstra and its MVNO partners are not upfront about the third rate 3G offering Telstra makes available to MVNOs.
Vodafone Australia has launched a new international roaming service - initially available only in the US, UK and New Zealand - under which travellers pay $5 per day in addition to charges they would incur using the same services in Australia.
The Federal Opposition has been demanding for years that a cost-benefit study to be undertaken for the National Broadband Network. So if it wins power at the upcoming election we can rightfully expect it to initiate such a study post-haste. In which case it might find a new report from the OECD useful.
IThere’s a strange contradiction in the ‘key messages’ coming out of the Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency’s just released ICT Workforce Study. It says that the supply of ICT skills has not kept pace with demand, and it also says that ICT graduates have trouble finding jobs in ICT.
Telstra has announced plans for a significant expansion of its LTE network in response to what it says is "unprecedented demand from customers for superfast mobile services."
Geepers, an Australian startup backed by Internode founder Simon Hackett has unveiled its ambitious plan to be the primary source of location information for people and premises, globally.
Despite the wide use, and abuse, of the term 5G for future mobile broadband technologies, there is a growing consensus that the quantum leaps in technology that have characterised generations one to four of cellular mobile telephony over the last 40 years won't continue.
Optus announced its new look last week. It has abandoned its menagerie of wild animals in favour of a cute cartoon character and insists that the changes are more than skin deep, that they reflect a new customer-focussed Optus.
The people who have been running the Telecommunications Society of Australia (TSA) since its absorption into the Australian Computer Society in 2007 have walked away from the ACS and set up a new organisation, the Telecommunications Association.
The Competitive Carriers Coalition has called for a comprehensive post-election review of Australian telecommunications regulation, warning that Telstra's market power is once again on the increase.
We've all seen those notices at airports, railway stations, on buses and elsewhere: "If you see something, say something." It's the government's attempt to get every single Australian involved in - and personally responsible for - the nation's security. Thankfully the threat level is very low and most of us, I suspect, have little concern and little expectation of finding anything untoward.
Mobile device management and security provider, Good Technology, has integrated its Good Dynamics secure mobility platform, its Good Collaboration Suite, and a range of ISV and custom-developed enterprise apps to create the Good Secure Mobility Solution, billed as the first integrated product suite for securing combinations of apps to enable mobile workflows.
Optus has retired its menagerie of wild animals that have been at the core of its branding for several years and replaced then with a cute cartoon character, provisionally named 'Ollie as part of major rebranding exercise.
The CSIRO says that Australian farmers can help to tackle the global food shortage and significantly increase their productivity by taking advantage of new smart farming technologies enabled by next generation broadband networks.
The recent intellectual property suit filed against ZTE in Australia by 'patent troll' Vringo has brought the contentious issue of patent trolls to our shores from the US where feral trolls are such a pest that the Obama Administration is trying to get legislation through Congress that will curb their actions, but that is not going to be easy. Patent trolls are protean creatures. One man's patent troll is another man's legitimate licensor of intellectual property.
MOOCs: massive, open online courses. And that's according to no lesser personage than Bob Metcalfe, widely recognised as the co-inventor of ethernet and the formulator of the prediction on networking now known as Metcalfe's Law.
Australians' love affair with smartphone and tablets and their insatiable appetite for content and applications have been good to Telstra. They have boosted its first mover advantage with LTE significantly, but that advantage will be magnified even further when Telstra introduces joyn.
For many, the question of what will drive demand for the NBN's bandwidth remains unanswered and while the there are multiple initiatives seeking to provide answers, Australia would do well to emulate the USA where a new body, US Ignite, has been created to do just that, but with very broad membership and hugely ambitious goals.
Deloitte Australia has teamed up with US based Kaggle to exploit opportunities thrown up by a growing shortage of data scientists - people skilled in the use of big data analytics.
