The meteoric rise of Salesforce in one chart

The meteoric rise of Salesforce in one chart | Technology Australia | Scoop.it
Salesforce has been on a crazy growth...
Tony Pittorino's insight:

Old versus new. Looks like new is winning.

Legacy software providers struggle to keep up with Salesforce CRM.

An important lesson for any software developers. You really have to make your applications relevant to today's market and indeed the future.

Disguising legacy software as new just doesn't cut the grade.

New hub to foster sport technology innovation

New hub to foster sport technology innovation | Technology Australia | Scoop.it
The newly launched META Sports Manufacturing Hub is giving Australian businesses, manufacturers, and universities the opportunity to collaboratively take advantage of the AU$300 billion global sports technology market.
Tony Pittorino's insight:

One to watch.

 

This initiative to create a technology hub around the multi-billion dollar global sports technology could just work.

 

It helps manufacturers and universities to work collaboratively foster innovation in sports technologies.


Funded by the government the Meta Sports Manufacturing Hub is expected to generate $600 million in new projects. This type of revenue can only contribute positively to the smaller $286 million in annual exports from this sector.


This could become a model to foster growth via technology in other sectors of the economy.

 

This could be an important step towards moving away from Australia's reliance on traditional mining and agricultural industries.

 

Success of our economy in the future will be based around adding value and building our base of intellectual properties.

 

And all can be achieved via technology innovation. #AUStech

Australian IT growth less than inflation rate
iTWire
Total spending on all IT and communications hardware, software and services in Australia will reach $76 billion this year, up 2.3% on 2013.
Tony Pittorino's insight:

Australia does better than than the rest of the world as IT spending slows.

 

The IT and communications market in Australia will reach $76 billion in 2014, up 2.3% on 2013.

 

This growth is less than CPI at 2.9% but ahead of world IT spending growth at 2.1%

 

As traditional sectors of mining and manufacturing slow, technology will be an important contributor to economic growth.

 

It will be paramount for Australia to focus energies on technology advancement, high-end, specialist manufacturing and value added sectors for future growth opportunities.
