The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has announced a new plan to boost collaboration between local ICT companies.
CollabIT, offered in conjunction with the NSW Department of State and Regional Development, will help like-minded companies form collaborative networks to source new markets and increase sales.
AIIA chief executive officer, Rob Durie, said in a statement that the initiative would allow the industry body’s SME members to pool their resources to bid for ICT contracts normally out of their reach.
“CollabIT will help AIIA members and other interested parties to not only establish partnerships with similar small Australian companies, but also to forge alliances with multinational corporations, tap into their substantial resources and access new markets,” he said.
The launch of CollabIT in the NSW ICT heartland of North Sydney, would add to a growing national network that included Victoria and Western Australia, AIIA local industry policy manager, John Dean, said.
