Industry leaders at the recent KANZ Broadband Summit in Hobart underscored the need for collaboration in developing innovative solutions for a smooth, effective broadband delivery.
“We have to consider how we can make this spirit of cooperation, collaboration and sharing a greater reality,” NZICT CEO, Brett O’Riley said.
The 2011 Australian creative economy report card provided a clearer vision of the innovation sector, showing the results of tremendous growth across the creative and cultural sectors. They contributed $3.1 billion towards GDP and there were more than 100,000 creative businesses registered as commercial entities.
Associate director of the creative industries innovation centre at the University of Technology (Sydney), Hael Kobayashi, said the local creative hothouse has been experiencing multiple enterprises that contribute ideas and shape technologies used. There is a symbiotic dynamic in the double helix world of creativity and innovation; one that illustrates a heightened level of cross sector and interdisciplinary collaboration, he added.
Collaborative technology leaders have previously declared that connecting to the pipe requires essential access to the cloud at a speed that evidences a high degree of commercial competitiveness.
In the Australian ICT industry, one of the biggest challenges lies in communicating the value of the digital economy.
CEO of the Telecommunications Carriers Forum, David Stone, claimed with a combined approach, a common regulatory framework can overcome the barriers of building a regional cloud infrastructure and put some good contact centres in place.
Next generation broadcasting PM of Korea Communications Commission, Dr Sang-il Park, listed four areas where collaboration could be used to communicate: service and content, interconnectivity of various devices for seamless content, cyber ethics in a digital community and reliability through the protection of copyright and fight against cyber fraud and infringement.
According to Kobayashi, enterprise learning is rocketing forward with information pouring into the public domain. The explosion of the social media creative enterprise also indicates a sector that is rapidly morphing.
“Global transformation is indeed everywhere. We can’t predict the future because we haven’t happened to it yet but, we do know that courage and vision will keep the channels open and our creative intelligence will get us there,” Kobayashi said.
