Good morning,

The Victorian Department of Human Services is set to cut up to 15 percent of its IT staff by December under an ongoing restructure of the 12,000-employee department. Most will go through voluntary redundancies and consolidated areas.

And ING Group's international retail banking arm will allow external developers to build and sell products through its customer-facing app store, in a bid to maintain relevance in a web 2.0 world.
