CenITex adds three new faces

Conrad Harvey, Randall Straw and Richard Tait join the CenITex Board

Three new faces have joined the CenITex Board including Conrad Harvey, Randall Straw and Richard Tait.

Minister for Technology, Gordon Rich-Phillips, said the three new members will bring significant ICT industry, risk management and organisational transformation expertise.

“The transformation of CenITex is a complex task that will require high level corporate management, transformational and ICT service delivery experience above and beyond the usual role of a government board,” Rich-Phillips said.

Harvey is group general manager of Coles and is also on the Victorian ICT Advisory Committee.

Straw was previously the deputy secretary of innovation and technology at the previous Department of Business and Innovation. He has also held a number of ICT and technology related roles and was also the executive director at Multimedia Victoria.

Tait has previously held a number of CIO and CTO roles with companies such as Goldman Sachs, JB Were and ANZ Bank.

“I am confident all three appointees will make significant contributions to the Board and their skills and experience will be a great asset in the task ahead,” Rich-Phillips said.

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.
