Investing in Hi-tech
South Australia leapt into the future to ensure our companies are building capability and sustainability for the next decade, in preparation for a technological transformation. With the rare ability to rapidly scale a skilled workforce to meet the needs of global technology companies, providing infrastructure, safety and security, South Australia is one of the best places in the world to establish or expand operations.
Our partnerships reach around the world and include the Australian Institute for Machine Learning working in collaboration with some of the best and brightest minds from MIT to provide data analytics capabilities.
Australia’s first cyber collaboration centre is located at Lot Fourteen, bringing together education, industry and business sectors. The A3C supports the development of a cyber workforce for global businesses that can establish cyber teams in South Australia to take advantage of South Australia’s world-class research, education, market reach and lower cost environment.
Some of the world’s biggest tech companies have expanded into South Australia, including Accenture (NYSE:ACN), which is establishing the Accenture Adelaide Hub, expected to create up to 2,000 new jobs over five years, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure Space, Nokia 5G, Deloitte which is expanding their South Australian presence with the opening of the first Australian Centre for Innovation and Technology, creating 500 jobs and global consultancy firm, Cognizant, which is creating 1,600 jobs in the highly skilled areas of software, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing and data analytics.
