New Zealand ICT industry bodies join forces
Posted on 10-Aug-2009 12:50 | Tags Filed under: News



NZICT Group and Auckland ICT have joined forces to create a new “Community of Interest”, focussed on developing better industry collaboration.

The New Zealand Information and Communication Technologies Group Inc (NZICT) and Auckland ICT Inc (previously known as Auckland ICT Cluster) have signed a charter to work together to enhance New Zealand’s competitiveness for the benefit of all New Zealanders and the growth of the ICT industry.

Signatories, NZICT’s Brett O’Riley and Auckland ICT’s Brian Moxey, welcomed the new relationship, saying it was to the advantage of both organisations and the industry to take a cohesive approach and encourage collaboration, including the pooling of resources and expertise.

“NZICT is critically interested in developing early stage companies in the ICT market and enhancing the vibrant collaborative environment that Auckland ICT has established, out of which productivity and foreign exchange benefits will accrue,” said Brett O’Riley.

“We have developed the Community of Interest engagement structure to enable established industry organisations to work together, without compromising their respective constitutional independence or goals.”

The NZICT Community of Interest will identify areas of common opportunity with a view to developing a shared work programme. Individual members of each organisation will meet regularly, and the Auckland ICT and its members will have input into NZICT industry policy platforms including: education and skills; innovation; private and public sector productivity; and industry value and relevance.

Brian Moxey said, “The two organisations working together is both logical and beneficial. Our concentration on the Auckland region melds well in to NZICT’s national focus and allows the flow of information, knowledge and views.”

A common theme for NZICT and Auckland ICT is exploring constraints on growth for industry participants, including capital markets, labour supply, international distribution capability and opportunities for like minded companies to collaborate. The Community of Interest will also be the basis for developing opportunities for joint sponsorship and promotion.

The charter allows each organisation to contribute to the common cause without compromising its own constitutional objectives, said Mr O’Riley and Mr Moxey.
