CloudCentral is proud to announce that we are the major event sponsor for this month’s AIIA Canberra Managers Forum featuring Bruce Thompson, Chief Knowledge Officer of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Our sponsorship of this months event has major significance as CloudCentral is set to announce several new service offerings focussed on Big Data, Analytics and Open Data.

Big Data, Analytics and Open Data are obviously highly topical subjects right now, with the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) recently releasing their Big Data issues paper.

CloudCentral is looking to address the current gaping hole for Big Data, Analytics and Open Data cloud solutions in the Australian marketplace. We look forward to releasing more details on our strategies and services over the coming weeks.
