Australian Information Industry Association



CollabIT is an engagement and business development initiative that links small and medium sized companies (SMEs) with multinational corporations and other stakeholders in the ICT sector.

The program is designed to assist companies to establish partnerships with other SME companies, to forge alliances with Multinational Corporations (MNCs), and to build reputation with government CIOs.  This enables them to tap into substantial MNC business opportunities and in doing so, access new or locked markets.

CollabIT is a joint initiative of the ACT Government and the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) and is delivered under contract by the AIIA.

The CollabIT program is based on the principle that collaboration between SMEs and MNCs enhances the capability and accelerates the business growth of SMEs; and also positively contributes to the success of the MNC.
