Leave a comment

The Faculty of Information Sciences and Engineering is hosting with IBM an Enterprise Computing Conference in the Ann Harding Centre on the University campus (15-16 May).

The program is here.

Senator Kate Lundy opened the Conference. In her introduction she noted the growth of enterprise and cloud computing and their role in the digital economy. She underscored the transformational potential of these approaches.

Senator Lundy discussed the potential of the National Broadband Network infrastructure in supporting innovation. She reminded delegates about George Gilder’s Law: “bandwidth grows at least three times faster than computer power.”

In the next part of her talk Senator Lundy discussed the skills required to optimise connectivity. She noted the IBM and University of Melbourne partnership and indicated the potential of a Marist/IBM model at the University of Canberra.

In her conclusion Senator Lundy affirmed the importance of collaboration to develop the skills required for a digital economy to harvest the benefits of enterprise and cloud computing. She exhorted delegates to use the conference to explore the transformational opportunities available from a connected society.
