I’m very pleased to add Australia’s largest software supplier to my client list.
I’m using my decades of know how to help the NSW Government with its award winning digital transformation.
They provide more SaaS platforms than any other organisation in Australia.
Healthcare, housing, transport, policing and recreation to name but a few.
And those are just the external ones.
They have many more hidden from public view.
Not too long from now, tens of thousands of years 12 students will anxiously await their HSC results.
An annual event that waits for no man or woman.
It’s software as a service and it must be RIGHT NOW.

So the question is, are you ready?

As ever, if you’re looking at the technology, you’re missing the point
