(NYSE: AVYA), a global leader in solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, today announced further integration with Google Cloud Contact Centre artificial intelligence (AI) to provide better experiences for customers and a more efficient workforce, taking full advantage of the powerful artificial intelligence capabilities of both companies. Recognised as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Center1, Avaya extends its leadership in leveraging AI to improve customer experience with more personalised, intelligent and insightful interactions. This includes embedding Google’s machine learning within Avaya conversation services powering the contact centre, enabling easy integration of AI capabilities regardless of channel, promoting a consistent and intelligent experience for customers and delivering true omnichannel experiences with AI. Together, Avaya and Google Cloud are providing customers with increased flexibility, efficiency and scalability in deploying powerful and simple communication and collaboration solutions that improve the customer journey. Avaya IX Contact Centre is an AI-enhanced, omnichannel solution including voice, email, chat and mobile communications to make customer engagement a competitive advantage that drives growth and brand preference. Avaya and Google are innovating in a number of key areas, including: Virtual Agents – Human-like automated Bots which seamlessly interact with customers, offloading the live agents’ utilisation until the optimal time and then transferring all context gathered to the agent. Now customers can decide when and how to engage bots throughout the interaction. And the Avaya platform captures the intent, actions and ultimate disposition of each interaction in real-time. Through this rich data, Avaya AI can be applied to decide the next best action in future customer engagement. Agent Assist – Provides superior customer experience by continuously delivering contextually relevant knowledge base to agents based on real time conversational analysis–for BOTH voice and text-based interactions. Avaya AI algorithms can be applied to Google Contact Centre AI to determine the next best action by the agent, delivering the right information and reducing customer friction – while increasing agent satisfaction and contact centre efficiency. Conversational Topic Modelling – An unsupervised learning tool designed to uncover key topic areas that customers have been contacting the contact centre about, and abstracting relevant information relating to how topics are articulated. Google Topic Modelling combined with Avaya AI enables agents to leverage real-time visibility of topics with each conversation turn. Through this valuable insight, recommended responses and best actions can be uniquely tailored to each part of the conversation to drive desired outcomes. Avaya is enhancing the customer experience by strengthening these areas through integration of Google Cloud APIs with key elements of Avaya’s contact centre infrastructure. Additionally, Avaya’s browser-based desktop is designed to easily connect with applications and Google Contact Centre AI is seamlessly incorporated in the agent user experience. “Partnering with Avaya helps us deliver on our goal to make the contact centre experience easier and more efficient,” said Rajen Sheth, Director of Product Management at Google Cloud. “We’re excited to work with Avaya so enterprises can keep customers happy with faster call resolution, and we look forward to building on this partnership as technology and customer’s expectations evolve.” Avaya and Google’s unique collaboration offers a differentiated contact centre solution with a simpler, but more efficient and architecturally superior approach via native gRPC integration for voice. This will enable Avaya IX Contact Centre customers to easily integrate AI providers like Google Cloud and infuse AI capabilities regardless of channel, for consistent omnichannel experiences. Avaya IX Contact Centre solutions are capable of maintaining an awareness of all events, including the sentiment, suggestions and resolution, creating a data lake source for future machine learning processing that generates increasingly impactful results. “We continue to expand our AI-enabled solutions as well as our cloud offerings for customers ranging from small-medium business to the largest global enterprises, and further collaboration with Google is providing additional capabilities to augment the innovation,” said Chris McGugan, Avaya Senior Vice President, Solutions & Technology. “By bringing these innovations to market for Avaya customers and partners, we enable them to make every customer interaction more meaningful and insightful, and more productive for their businesses.” Avaya pioneered the integration of AI capabilities into contact centre communications solutions, and has led development and investment in a number of key areas: Effortless Self-Service: With the power of AI, you can deliver great self-service experiences getting your customer the right information at the right time. Agent Assistance and Productivity: Empower agents with AI-driven guidance, that includes relevant content, suggested next-actions, and real-time coaching to stay ahead of the customer engagement. Smart Matching: Leverage advanced machine learning models to pair the best agent with each customer interaction. Smart Interactions: With powerful AI technologies, you can create smart, conversational interactions that yield improved business results. Empowered Agents: Agents are empowered by AI-driven guidance for content and suggested actions. Summarisation tools help agents expedite after-call processes. Simplified Operations: Reduce complexity for customers and agents alike by using AI models to select a self-service experience, automate a process, or pair with the best possible agent -Ends- The company is showcasing these solutions, and more, at the Avaya booth #1519, Hall D at Enterprise Connect, March 18–21, in Orlando, FL.

ActiPatch® uses electromagnetic pulse therapy to provide long-lasting pain relief. Dr Koneru is the Vice President of Product Development for Bioelectronics and visited Australia to present the clinical evidence behind ActiPatch® at the Australian Pharmacy Conference on the Gold Coast. You can watch Dr Koneru discussing ActiPatch® on Chanel Seven’s Weekend Sunrise here. “The new understanding of chronic pain is that nerves ‘memorise’ the initial pain from injury and over time, become hyperreactive,” Dr Koneru said. “When used over a painful area, ActiPatch’s pulsed signal is absorbed by tissue and disrupts hyperactivity of the nerves, resulting in lasting relief.” Electromagnetic pulse therapy helps to relieve pain from mild osteoarthritis and general musculoskeletal pain in the back, knee, heel and other muscle joints. It is also ideal for strains, sprains and other painful conditions. The therapy is completely sensation free, with no heat, tingling sensations or vibration. ActiPatch® is drug-free and can be safely used with any other medications. A registry studyi of more than 5,000 chronic pain sufferers using ActiPatch® indicated that: • More than 65% per cent reported a clinically meaningful reduction in pain from a wide variety of causes and locations of pain • The average pain reduction reported in these individuals was 57% • The 3-month follow-up showed sustained pain relief, decreased oral analgesic medication use and quality of life improvement. “ActiPatch® uses low-level therapy to allow 24/7 use and, as it doesn’t require skin contact, can be used over bandages and clothing,” said Dr Koneru. “Can also be used by people with metallic implants and when not placed directly over them, electronic devices such as pacemakers/defibrillators.” Mundipharma recently acquired the exclusive Australian and New Zealand distribution rights for ActiPatch®, reinforcing its commitment to the multimodal approach to pain management. This multimodal approach includes cognitive behavioural therapies, physical therapies and pharmacological therapies. “Mundipharma has worked collaboratively with healthcare professionals to provide appropriate access to pain relief over the past 20 years,” said Jane Orr, Managing Director of Mundipharma Australia and New Zealand. “Our work with leading clinicians and reputation as a trusted medical advisor will enable us to help more patients benefit from this therapy.” The results of clinical trials involving ActiPatch® can be found here. Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.

From their headquarters in the Sydney suburb of Greenwich, Hireup powers support worker services for people with disability all over Australia. The Care Provider of the Year awards are a national celebration of Australia's best care providers as voted by users on CareNavigator.com. The awards recognise care providers from over 13,000 listed, who have maintained a consistently perfect rating for the entire year. Joining Hireup, this year's winners also included Queensland's A Positive Being Counselling Service and South Australia's Action Psychology. As an online platform, Hireup is built to revolutionise the way people with disability find, hire and manage support workers by harnessing technology and connecting people with shared interests. Hireup founders Jordan and Laura O’Reilly, grew up alongside a brother with disability. Managing support workers was part of their family routine. Sometimes the support workers were a great fit but more often than not, they weren’t. While at university, Jordan became a disability support worker and learned that not only was the system broken for people with disability but also for support workers. It was with a deep and personal understanding of the disability support work system and the ways it needed to change that Laura and Jordan decided to create Hireup. Since its founding, Hireup has booked over 1.2 million hours of support and claims to have collectively saved users over $9million. Little wonder then that the platform has proved popular with participants in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). In less than 5 years, Hireup has grown to make a huge difference in lives all across Australia. As Hayley, a CareNavigator.com user put it, "Having the freedom, choice and control for us to connect with who we want, and communicate directly with them has allowed such great connections! It’s fantastic that the middle man is cut out, and workers and people seeking support can connect with each other directly. We have had so much more success in support than ever before with a traditional model."

Ten awards were given to Avaya’s leading channel partners from Australia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China at a star-studded gala dinner. The partners were recognised for creating new ideas to inspire in their quests to revolutionise the way that businesses build customer and employee experiences. At the Avaya Partner Summit, Avaya demonstrated its go-to-market transformation strategy for APAC channel partners, who will be able to take advantage of Avaya’s fast-growing ecosystem of technology solutions, alliance partners and channel programs to increment and amplify the value of their Avaya business. “In an increasingly digitised business environment, it is more important than ever for technology companies to collaborate in designing holistic solutions for their customers’ business needs. Today we recognise organisations that share this vision and which are using Avaya’s open communications platforms to innovate, to grow and to deliver additional value to the market,” said Fadi Moubarak, Vice President – Channels, Avaya International. The lion’s share of awards went to channel partners from Australia, Japan and South Korea, speaking volumes about the sophistication of these markets. Many of the winning partners were recognised for implementing truly innovative solutions that redefined their customers’ businesses. For instance, the Australia-based Telstra was honoured for its continued ability to develop the latest, customer-centric innovations on the Avaya Oceana and Equinox platforms. Marubeni Information Systems Co., based in Japan, was awarded for developing its own artificial intelligence (AI) solution enabling voice-based recognition, frequently asked questions and interactive voice response (IVR). Meanwhile, the Korea-based TAK Information Systems Inc. was named Innovation Partner of the Year after deploying an advanced omni-channel call centre – the first of its kind in the country. Avaya also paid homage to the partners most driving cloud growth across the APAC region, where once again Australia and Japan led the field.

(NYSE: AVYA) today introduced a new private cloud delivery model of its Avaya OneCloud solutions for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), providing enterprise organizations with a fast, convenient and automated path to the benefits of cloud communications. The new Avaya OneCloud ReadyNow private cloud offerings feature preconfigured, per-seat consumption and standard bundles of both UCaaS and CCaaS solutions, reducing risk, cost and complexity from the transition to a cloud platform from on-premise solutions. The Avaya OneCloud private offering is being introduced as part of Avaya’s new Avaya Intelligent Xperiences – or Avaya IX - solution naming architecture unveiled this week at the company’s annual ENGAGE user group conference. Based on input from customers and partners, the new nomenclature streamlines the company’s portfolio of solutions and reflects the wealth of experience Avaya brings to bear for customers as they transform digitally and move their solutions into the cloud. With over 3.5 million cloud seats and growing, Avaya brings experience with the full spectrum of business communications in the cloud, leveraging its leading SaaS capabilities. Avaya OneCloud private solutions are customizable, with experts to help design, customize and manage applications that meet unique and often complex digital transformation needs. Many enterprise IT leaders are interested in the benefits of a public cloud offering, such as an opex-based consumption model, flexibility and speed of deployment. Control and security concerns, along with more limited manageability and customization options from upstart cloud CCaaS and UCaaS vendors, however, have slowed adoption for the larger implementations. Avaya is taking a flexible hybrid approach to the cloud with these new solutions to meet the needs of small businesses up to the largest global implementations. “As a top Avaya partner for more than two decades, we’ve seen the company evolve from voice communications to a robust cloud solutions provider, helping clients achieve high levels of flexibility, scalability, and security for a variety of their needs,” said Steven Bernard, Vice President Avaya Sales, Carousel. “We’re excited to see Avaya will now provide our UC and contact center clients with cloud-based bundles for even greater efficiency, as well as the ability to design an environment that supports their desired scalability and consumption needs.” Avaya OneCloud ReadyNow highlights: The easiest path to cloud for established on-premise businesses Standard UC and CC bundles based on highly automated reference architectures to speed builds and deployments.

(NYSE:AVYA) today announced new measures aimed at enabling channel partner growth. The announcements were made at the Avaya Partner Summit 2019 in Dubai, where the company is hosting the EMEA and APAC regions’ leading channel heavyweights, market movers and technical and sales leaders. The new measures, which come as an update to the Avaya Edge partner program, will provide a path for channel partners to move from one value proposition to more advanced ones – moving to solution selling; and from solution selling to innovation building; and from innovation building to enabling true business transformation. The updates to Avaya Edge also place an emphasis on partner inclusivity, aiming to enable growth regardless of the size or business model of the channel partner. This means that Avaya Edge is now the only channel program in the world to provide equal growth opportunities to partners of any size. “Our own growth is inexorably linked to the growth of our partners, regardless of where they sit today on the Avaya Edge Program. Our growth strategies need to align with those of our partners if we’re to succeed in our goals,” said Fadi Moubarak, Vice President – Channels, Avaya International. “Avaya wants its channel partners to continue growing – pure and simple. As a result, in 2019, we’ll be focusing our efforts on three key areas to enable that. There will be a bigger emphasis on cloud; we will enable the delivery of complete solutions that build on our market-leading, API-driven ecosystem; and we will deliver new technologies and innovations that offer answers to genuine business challenges.” With the Edge Program, Avaya has already made significant progress in growing partner business over the past year. Between 2017 and 2018, the number of partners eligible for rebates increased by 281%, and there was a 159% increase in the number of partners who had seen more than 10% growth. The company’s strategy for 2019 will be to build on these positive results. Much of the coming year’s focus will be on empowering channel partners to more easily roll out cloud-based products as cloud adoption continues to skyrocket. With offerings for both the mid-market and the enterprise, Avaya’s range of cloud-based services continues to expand, and is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for both large and small channel partners in 2019. Avaya is also leveraging its market-leading, open standards-based communications platforms to encourage and empower channel partners to provide holistic solutions to their customers. Solutions made available through the Avaya DevConnect and Avaya A.I.Connect programs, for example, bring leading technology disruptors with readily integrated technology solutions into Avaya’s channel. Through the programs, these solutions are made available to channel partners, who can use them to propose innovative, vertical-specific technologies for their customers. Alternatively, Avaya’s open ecosystem can be leveraged by channel partners to build their own solutions. With many of Avaya’s most successful partners having built new innovations on top of Avaya’s platforms for their customers, Avaya is rolling out new tools and APIs that enable and encourage channel partners to take the lead on innovation. These solutions, and more, are being demonstrated at the Avaya Partner Summit 2019, taking place in Dubai from December 4 to 5, 2018. From embedding AI and biometrics into communications workflows to creating seamless omni-channel experiences, summit visitors will find real, working solutions to the biggest business challenges that companies face. “It is our role as a technology vendor to provide our partners with opportunities to continue growing and transforming as the market shifts. Our aim with this event is to continue in our efforts to help empower our channel partners, enabling them to realize even greater levels of growth with Avaya,” added Moubarak. ## About Avaya Businesses are built on the experiences they provide, and every day millions of those experiences are built by Avaya (NYSE: AVYA).

This is according to an IDC White Paper The Digitization of the World – From Edge to Core, sponsored by global data and storage leader Seagate Technology, which examines impending shifts to the global data model. While Healthcare currently has the smallest share of the global enterprise datasphere among key industries examined in the study, it is primed to grow the fastest, far surpassing the Media and Entertainment sector and matching the Financial Services sector by 2025. The growth reflects advancements in healthcare analytics and imaging technology, as well as the increasing amount of real-time data created in medical care. The study, The Digitization of the World – From Edge to Core, assesses data-readiness of the four critical industries that encompass nearly half of the global enterprise datasphere. It does so by using DATCON (DATa readiness CONdition), an index that evaluates management, usage and monetisation of data to help inform today’s business leaders on their level of data-readiness. Ranging from 1 (Critical) to 5 (Optimised), DATCON scores are calculated across a number of metrics, including data growth, criticality, security, investment, management, skills and C-level involvement. DATCON: evaluating global data readiness by sector Industries are in various states of readiness and should take action to prepare for, and capitalise on, data growth. Using the DATCON index, the study identifies the most pressing initiatives businesses must consider as they approach 2025: Manufacturing and Financial Services scored the best overall at 3.3 each, representing the greatest use of edge computing in the four industries, with opportunity for blockchain, analytics and AI. Despite its rapid growth, at 2.4, healthcare has room for improvement as well in data readiness. Survey results indicate blockchain will be important for the industry, but nearly 60 percent lack a strategy or have yet to implement any initiative. Media and Entertainment received the lowest DATCON score of 2.0, showing the sector ripe for advanced data technologies; particularly in data security and data management. “We are at the beginning of an era where both data creation and data utilisation are forecasted to grow rapidly over the next decade. While some industries are more prepared for digital transformation than others, all businesses need to be ready to act on a solid digital strategy in order to be successful in the data age,” said Dave Mosley, Seagate’s chief executive officer. “Data technologies are becoming central for productivity expansion, data monetisation and value-creation. We are excited to be part of this transformation and be a strong supporter to enable these opportunities for the years to come.” Enterprise out in front The enterprise is fast becoming the world’s primary data steward in today’s connected world. The Digitization of the World study predicts that the installed bytes across the enterprise is to represent over 80 percent of total installed bytes worldwide in 2025. This trend will only continue to amplify the data protection responsibilities of companies around the world. The cloud is the new core Also revealed by The Digitization of the World study, almost half (49%) of the world’s stored data could reside in public cloud environments by 2025. The shift to the public cloud is largely being driven by a world filled with IoT sensors that are constantly capturing, recording, and analysing data in business environments. With businesses looking to centralise data management and delivery, there is an increased reliance on the connectivity, performance and convenience that cloud services provide. As companies continue to pursue the cloud for increasing data processing and storage needs, cloud data centers are becoming the new enterprise data repository. In essence, the cloud is becoming the new core. “While endpoints continue to be the primary location for data creation in the short term, the fastest growth is forecasted to happen at the core and the edge - with more data stored in the core than in the world’s endpoints by 2025. This will be particularly true for major industries as edge computing continues to be a key driver of business-critical factors and digital transformation,” said David Reinsel, senior vice president at IDC.

We are humbled to bring this into the Australian healthcare sector, and continue on this journey together for better infection prevention,” said David Teng, Director of Mun (Australia) Pty Ltd. The most compelling feature of the antimicrobial glove is the highly advanced photosensitiser dye, which is bound to the glove’s outer surface and is the key component in helping reduce healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs). Photosensitisers generate singlet oxygen upon exposure to light and attack the microbe’s proteins and lipids, resulting in the destruction of harmful bacteria, such as MRSA and VRE. Transmission of microbes from the patient’s environment to a healthcare worker’s glove is therefore reduced, helping break the chain of infection. Studies show that using this non-selective method to kill bacteria will unlikely result in the development of resistance. GloveOn Protect has been created in collaboration with Chemical Intelligence UK. Rob Gros, Chief Executive Officer of Chemical Intelligence UK, drew inspiration for creating the technology following the swine flu pandemic in 2010. “This exciting innovation has been made possible through our partnership with Hartalega [Mun Australia’s parent company]. I am excited to see the global impact that singlet oxygen technology will make in reducing HAIs,” said Rob Gros. GloveOnProtect adds to the multi-modal approach for combating HAIs and preventing contamination and transmission of pathogens from healthcare workers hands to patients. The antimicrobial properties of GloveOn Protect have been proven to kill up to 99.999% of microbes, and has shown to be easy to use, non-toxic, non-irritant, and non-sensitising on skin, and is the next game-changing healthcare innovation for infections.   About Mun With head offices located in Australia, The United States, Malaysia, China and India, Mun is dedicated to produce the best quality gloves across the globe and become the leader for premium healthcare products that enhance peoples’ care, wellbeing and welfare around the world.

With TechnologyOne working closely to understand our business requirements, and the level of communication between all three parties, it has enabled a successful integration,” said Pacey.   The solution integrates the resident administration and Medicare claiming capabilities of Telstra Health’s Resident Manager software, with the financial capabilities of TechnologyOne’s OneAgedCare solution, to offer a seamless aged care solution.   “Like many organisations, we wanted to minimise the number of systems and solutions we use,” Pacey said. “We were looking for a solution that gave us the ability to scale information management and reporting, as well as provide efficiencies from combining our multiple solutions into one.”   The implementation across all of Infinite Care’s sites will allow it to automate a number of back office functions, reducing the time taken to prepare and submit information to Medicare. With an end-to-end solution, the flow of data between Resident Manager and TechnologyOne reduces the need for double handling and ensures information is up-to-date and timely for business reporting.   Resident Manager’s real-time integration with Medicare helps to reduce the double entry of information into the Medicare portal.   “We've now got this nice workflow happening across the business, from when a resident first enquires with us, right through to all of our resident billing and financial reporting. We now have greater assurance that our billing is timely and our reporting streamlined. The integration with Medicare has helped to speed up the process of getting information or feedback from Medicare.”   TechnologyOne Chief Operating Officer Stuart MacDonald said TechnologyOne was proud to be partnering with Telstra Health to deliver a new generation of aged care software.   “Our partnership with Telstra Health aligns with our strategy to continuously deepen and broaden our enterprise solutions for the industries we operate in,” MacDonald said. “This new partnership puts our enterprise solution far ahead of the market, making us the only enterprise solution provider with the depth and breadth that we offer.”   MacDonald added: “Infinite Care has benefited from our collective industry expertise and capability, enabling it to integrate disparate systems into a single solution that is both scalable and compliant.”   Telstra Health’s Head of Aged, Disability & Community Care, Michael Donnelly, stated that Telstra Health is excited about the opportunities the partnership with TechnologyOne will provide for aged care providers.   “In partnering with TechnologyOne, our clients benefit from working with two client-focused, Australia based organisations, with long-term proven solutions,” Donnelly said.   “Telstra Health is committed to continuous investment in the aged care sector, and Resident Manager is just one of the ways we support aged care providers. Our market-leading Clinical, Care and Medication Management solution combined with Resident Manager and TechnologyOne offer an end-to-end seamless experience for residential aged care providers.”   - Ends -   About TechnologyOne TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE) is Australia's largest enterprise software company and one of Australia's top 200 ASX-listed companies, with offices across six countries.

(Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, and the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products, today announced that it has expanded its operations in the Asia-Pacific region with the launch of its new subsidiary, Rimini Street New Zealand Limited, and the opening of its new office in Auckland to address the growing demand for Rimini Street’s premium, ultra-responsive support services in New Zealand. Rimini Street’s expansion was announced at a gala event held at The Northern Club in Auckland, where clients, local IT leaders and the special guest of honor, Ambassador Scott P. Brown, the U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, were hosted by Rimini Street’s general manager for Asia-Pacific, Andrew Powell, and Rimini Street corporate senior executives. Growing demand for IT optimisation and a business-driven IT roadmap Rimini Street launched its new subsidiary in response to the region’s increasing desire for software support solutions that can help optimise their IT spend and enable them to liberate significant funding for their business transformation initiatives. Rimini Street already supports nearly 50 clients with operations in New Zealand, including local brands James Pascoe, Spark, 2Degrees Mobile, Refining New Zealand and The University of Auckland. By switching to Rimini Street support from the vendor’s support, organisations have saved up to 90 percent of the total cost of maintenance of their SAP and Oracle software assets and are able to run their current ERP releases with no forced upgrades for a minimum of 15 years from the date they switched support. Rimini Street clients also benefit from the Company’s flexible, premium-level enterprise software support model, including its industry-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) of 15-minute response times for critical Priority 1 cases. In addition, each client is assigned a Primary Support Engineer (PSE) with an average of 15 years’ experience in their particular enterprise software system, backed by a broader team of technical experts. By switching their support to Rimini Street, organisations are able to take back control of their IT roadmaps with a ”business-driven roadmap” strategy that provides much more flexibility and value compared to the vendor roadmap, allowing CIOs to focus on creating value and providing competitive advantage for growth. “Organisations in New Zealand, both public and private, spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year on their annual enterprise software support and maintenance, yet see little return from this significant spend,” said Andrew Powell, general manager, Asia-Pacific, Rimini Street. “Our conversations with CIOs are squarely focused on how we can help them dramatically lower the total cost of ownership of their stable, mature enterprise systems as part of a hybrid computing model and business-driven roadmap, and as a result, we are experiencing increased demand in the region. With Rimini Street, organisations have the option to break free from the seemingly never-ending upgrade cycle dictated by the vendor’s roadmap – an expensive and disruptive path for companies to undertake just to stay fully supported. With our new operation in Auckland, we are better able to engage with and support organisations in New Zealand who want to significantly cut their software support spend and take back control of their IT roadmaps.” Region at risk of “falling behind” on innovation Recent research from Vanson Bourne, commissioned by Rimini Street, found that enterprises in the ANZ region plan to spend the second-least amount on IT innovation in the world in the next 12 months, and they plan to increase their IT innovation spend by just 6.31% in the 12 months following the survey, well below the global average of 10.94%. “New Zealand is famous for innovation, but it is at risk of falling behind the rest of the world,” continued Powell. “New Zealand CIOs know that it’s important to spend their IT budgets on more than daily operations. With budget pressures between operating costs and the need to invest in innovation, CIOs need to reassess the value of existing support arrangements and explore better software support options designed to provide a greater ROI. Rimini Street enables CIOs in New Zealand to unlock significant savings and redirect that funding into critical innovation initiatives.” To download an eBook summary of the survey, “The State of Innovation: Priorities and Challenges,” click here.
