Australian-owned IT Firm, GLiNTECH, Secures 41st Place in the 2016 CRN Fast50 2016-12-05T05:08:08Z australian-owned-it-firm-glintech-secures-41st-place-in-the-2016-crn-fast50 Sydney, Australia -December 5, 2016 - Australian IT services provider, GLiNTECH, is proud to have secured 41st place in the 2016 CRN Fast50 this year. The CRN Fast50 is the most exclusive club in Australian IT, allowing companies the opportunity to be scored among the fastest-growing IT companies in the country. Now in its eighth year, the CRN Fast50 continues to differ significantly from similar events, since it recognises and ranks Australian IT companies based solely on year-on-year revenue growth. A huge achievement for Australian-owned GLiNTECH, the Sydney-based IT company looks forward to the benefits and prestige associated with their ranking on the CRN Fast50. Companies enter the CRN Fast50 to raise their profile, prove their stability and success, boost their reputation, and to celebrate their team. “Being part of the Fast50 makes us very proud of the current team and the changes we have implemented together to make GLiNTECH a better company,” said a spokesperson for GLiNTECH. “It solidifies the success of our current road map.” To be eligible to enter the CRN Fast50, Australian-based IT companies must have derived more than 50 percent of their revenue for the financial year from selling, reselling, recommending, designing, or implementing IT products and/or services to business end users. The entry and judging process runs from July to November, with the closing date for applications this year being Sunday, October 2. The companies are then ranked solely on the basis of their percentage growth rate for the financial period. The top 50 companies were revealed at a ceremony in Sydney during an event which is revered as the industry's best award's night. The list of the fastest-growing companies will be published, in order of rank, in the CRN magazine and on crn.com.au. An end of year gala will also take place to provide unparalleled networking opportunities for the high-performing IT companies and sponsors, as well as panel discussions on pertinent industry issues.

The award, announced at last week’s Atlassian Summit conference in San Jose, saw GLiNTECH top more than 350 other Expert partners from around the world.  Returning to Australia from the event, GLiNTECH’s Managing Director, Dimitri Spyridopoulos, says, “it was our team’s first time attending Summit so we were excited to be there amongst the global Atlassian community. To then receive the award was a tremendous surprise.  “On the reasons for such rapid growth, our association with Atlassian stretches back over 10 years but it’s only in the last few that we’ve moved into helping customers license the platforms. Based on our long lasting relationships with many Australian organisations, the reaction from the national market has been astounding; in the last year we expanded our consulting team significantly, doubled the services side and took on training on behalf of Atlassian in the local market. We’re also the recognised partner for delivering Atlassian’s JIRA Enterprise course into the Asia Pacific.  “I’d like to sincerely thank our customers, our team at GLiNTECH and the team at Atlassian for their ongoing support and helping to make this achievement possible.” This award follows closely behind last month’s announcement of GLiNTECH being awarded Platinum Expert Partner status - one of very few companies in the world to hold the title. Says Dimitri, “with the new Platinum accreditation and now this award to further endorse our reputation, we’re looking forward to exploring new opportunities with Atlassian products, particularly for the enterprise in delivering the highly scalable and clustered suite packaged under the Datacenter editions of JIRA, Confluence & Stash.” The growth experienced by GLiNTECH is part of wider growth in Atlassian sales worldwide, with total revenue reaching $215 million (USD) for the last financial year, a 44% rise from the previous period.  With both Atlassian and GLiNTECH based in Sydney and gaining global recognition, the ongoing successes are a great advertisement for Australian-based software companies.  About GLiNTECH: GLiNTECH is an Australian Software Services specialist for enterprise organisations.

Having this kind of focused event - one involving the developers building the software as well as companies actually using it - is a great way to demonstrate how a product like Stash works and the value it brings.” “Anyone attending the event will be able to see where the software fits within the development flow and wider agile practices. Being able to see how it actually works on a day to day basis - like managing workload so developers can spend more time doing real development - is very beneficial to understanding the software." “We use Stash ourselves and have seen it used across many different industries, so we know the advantages it has over other similar software. Because of that, we also know there are plenty of businesses that would benefit from it, which is why we’re happy to get behind Atlassian and this event.” Getting Git Right is being held on 27th March, 2014.

The Future of Superannuation in Australia 2013-05-28T01:32:54Z the-future-of-superannuation-in-australia On Thursday May 30th, 2013, a conference is being held in Sydney to discuss The Future of Superannuation in Australia. Featuring leading industry experts - including former Australian Treasurer Peter Costello - this event will discuss changes surrounding Super, with a particular view towards technology and innovation. In 2010, the Australian government set a plan in place to bring about change in the Superannuation industry. Called SuperStream, this is about improving quality of data using TFNs as primary account identifiers, encouraging the use of technology to improve process efficiency between funds and streamlining contributions. These changes mean there is a need for greater consumer governance, fluid communication with government bodies and increased reporting for regulatory control. In 2013, with some of the legislation already in place, the focus is on secure messaging as electronic transfer of this information opens up risk for funds. GLiNTECH have been successfully delivering secure messaging services for over 10 years and, as an award-winning IBM Software Premier Business Partner, they are recognised as IBM product and industry specialists within financial markets. “We’d like to highlight that the Superannuation industry is now set to align more closely with standards and regulations of Banking, therefore understanding that sector is crucial to ensuring true benchmarking occurs”, says GLiNTECH’s Managing Director, Dimitri Spyridopoulos. Having formed a strong relationship, GLiNTECH and IBM are bringing their industry expertise to this event as partners and lead sponsors. IBM have been working closely with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) on the SuperStream messaging services standards which set out requirements for message packaging, transport security and receipting of messages. GLiNTECH’s close partnership with IBM means they have industry process related consultants on hand who understand the changes being introduced in Australia. Providing innovative demonstrations to the Superannuation industry is not new to GLiNTECH, having previously sponsored and showcased solutions at conferences such as Process Automation for Super Funds. Says Spyridopoulos, “since 2011 we’ve been showcasing demos for mapped industry-specific process flows and relevant data models for things such as fund switching, simple rollovers and various beneficiary payments.”This week’s Future of Superannuation conference has been organised by FST Media and attendance is free, but registration is required and spaces are very limited. To view the full agenda and speakers, or to register, please visit the conference website. You can follow the event on Twitter with @GLiNTECH and @FSTMedia, or by using the #FSTSuper hashtag.

Amongst these global giants, it is easy to overlook the smaller IT service providers that are busy creating and utilising software in some very interesting ways. Companies like GLiNTECH, based in Sydney, that have a dedicated R&D team constantly working on new ideas, much the same as their counterparts in Silicon Valley. In addition to investing in R&D, GLiNTECH know the importance of collaborating with international partners in order to remain at the cutting edge of global technology. So when their Managing Director is travelling to the USA, it’s worth taking some time to meet with him. Most recently the GLiNTECH team have been showcasing their skills in the BPM space, developing unique add-ons and enhancements outside of BPM suites. Projects include an end-to-end iPad-BPM Mortgage Application and the development of their first software product, Optio, which is a complete Market Rates Management System for financial markets that uses IBM BPM for process orchestration. Optio is just out of its BETA stage with cloud enhancements set for release later this year.
