Judges' Lunch launches 2013 ARN ICT Industry Awards (slideshow 1 - 35 photos)

2013 Awards which will be held at a Black Tie gala dinner on Wednesday, September 18

The 2013 ARN ICT Industry Awards were launched in true style at the Ivy Sunroom in Sydney with the annual Judges' Lunch.

A stellar line-up of ICT industry thought and business leaders gathered to hear ARN publisher and president, Susan Searle, and Intel director of regional sales and business development Asia-Pacific, Philip Cronin, speak, and to take the chance to network and catch up with, in many cases, old friends.

There was plenty of humour, a lot of chat, and a few beverages quaffed. It was a fitting kick-off to the 2013 ARN ICT Industry Awards which will be held at a Black Tie gala dinner on Wednesday, September 18, at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.

The 2013 awards theme is A night of stars - celebrating a year of stars, aptly named for the myriad of channel champions, talented professionals and high-achieving technology companies making a difference in the ICT industry.

As with previous years, we are expecting a record number of entries this year across the 26 award categories. New this year is the Cloud Collaboration vendor award category, which is this year’s designated focus as part of the Best Emerging Technology Initiative.

The category focuses on Cloud-based technologies and services that are enabling businesses to reduce the cost of managing and maintaining IT systems.

Again this year, on the judging front, we have overwhelming support from the IT community and have appointed 82 judges on our panel: 22 from the distributor ranks, 25 from the vendor camp, 24 from the reseller community, and 11 from the telecommunications industry.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
