|What is the Buy Australian Software initiative?|
The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) and Microsoft have partnered to deliver the Buy Australian Software initiative to promote the capability of the Australian software industry.
This program allows Australian companies to reach an international audience enabling software export as well as promote Australian software to local buyers. Both are key drivers for economic growth for the ICT industry as we move into the digital economy.
The Buy Australian Software Cloud Solutions campaign is both a living online catalogue as well as a promotional printed version backed by numerous local and international awareness activity and campaigns. Printed catalogue submissions close 7 April 2011. This campaign and catalogue is aimed at promoting Australian cloud software solution offerings and follows on from the successful Windows 7 campaign in 2010.
AIIA and Microsoft look forward to further campaigns promoting Australian software innovation.
Who can submit software applications for the catalogue?
Listing in the online catalogue is available to Australian Independent Software Vendors (ISV) only – this means that majority ownership of the listing company must be Australian – for products developed by the Australian company.
For the Australian Cloud Business Solutions the criteria is as follows:
As a minimum, the ISV simply needs to meet the requirements outlined in the Microsoft Platform Ready portal for product(s) to be included in the software Catalogue. This is available at www.microsoftplatformready.com (Recommended)
Please advise us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you have completed either of the above and simply complete the online registration following the links on this site.
