Briefly:Telecom & Huawei; ANZ cloud politics;
Posted on 16-Oct-2013 08:12 by Bill Bennett | Tags Filed under: Articles



  • A joint innovation programme between Telecom NZ and Huawei will see the telecommunications equipment giant tailor technologies for New Zealand conditions. Huawei Wireless president David Wang says it could mean developing products for sale elsewhere. He says “New Zealand has a very agile commercial environment which is quick to adopt new technologies and promote fresh thinking. This is what has made it such a hot bed for innovation, and that’s something we want to tap into.”
  • Wellington-based cloud and infrastructure consultant Ian Apperley says since the Australian election that country’s government has leap-frogged New Zealand in its “will and determination” to move services to the cloud. One interesting angle Apperley explores is the Australian government’s willingness to support domestic cloud service providers.
  • New rules at Twitter mean it is now possible to get direct messages from people you don’t follow. It could be useful for companies wanting to get whinges from customers without having to share their failings with the whole world. Otherwise, you’ll probably not choose to enable the feature which is switched off by default.
