ICT research organisation NICTA and technology services provider, Infosys, have signed a joint research collaboration agreement to tackle technology issues facing businesses.

NICTA CEO, Dr Hugh Durrant-Whyte,said the collaboration will provide Infosys with access to NICTA’s researchers, and provide NICTA with access to technology problems.

It will firstly focus on engineering challenges such as ‘platformising’ software applications; improving methodologies used to define business problems; Cloud resiliency and privacy preserving techniques; optimisation in infrastructure and disaster management; logistics and smart grids to take advantage of Big Data and other emerging technologies.

According to NICTA, platformisation research includes the development of new techniques to harvest software architectures, functions and processes from existing large code bases to speed up the development of new systems, especially for Cloud based platforms.

The program aims to include joint research, PhD student internship and professional exchange programs, as well as commercialisation of relevant intellectual property during the next five years.

“With NICTA we have found a number of synergies including shared research focus areas within the Digital Economy, complementary strengths and IP, and partnerships with Australian universities,” Infosys Labs and products R&D senior vice president, Subu Goparaju, said.
