Australia is ranked within the top ten of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. Though the sector has matured over the past 25 years, technology companies continue to wrestle with business-shaping challenges. Access to capital, faster time to market, and finding and keeping the right people is more critical than ever.

Experts predict strong growth in the demand for technology professions with a forecast 12.8 per cent increase over the next three years. The highest growth nationwide is expected for computer network professionals, with a 20.5 per cent increase forecast as businesses look at new ways to streamline their ICT program.

In addition, some of the world’s leading companies have already chosen Australia as a strategic location for investing in ICT, research and design (R&D), and as a base for connecting with the Asia-Pacific region.

Australia’s economic and research strengths, when combined with robust cyber-security, privacy and intellectual property laws and generous R&D tax incentives, make the country an attractive destination for investment, driving opportunities for technology professionals around Australia.
