NICTA and Infosys sign ICT research collaboration deal
- 13 February, 2013 15:45
National ICT Australia (NICTA) and technology services firm Infosys will be conducting research into technology problems which affect businesses such as cloud computing resiliency.
Outcomes of the joint collaboration project may also include infrastructure optimisation which could allow companies to take advantage of big data.
In addition, NICTA and Infosys plan to work on what they refer to as `platformisation’ research. This will involve the development of techniques to harvest software architectures, functions and processes from large code bases in order to create new systems for cloud-based platforms.
The joint research project will include PhD student internships with Australian universities, professional exchange programs and the commercialisation of intellectual property over the next five years.
NICTA CEO Doctor Hugh Durrant-Whyte said in a statement that the collaboration will provide it with access to “real world” technology problems.
The partnership was announced during NICTA’s annual technology convention, TechFest, which took place at Parliament House in Canberra on 13 February.
