In the meantime, we will still publish news and other articles regularly on itwire.com. We would like to thank you and all our readers for your support and wish you a happy Christmas and New Year.

 

US market research group Current Analysis has outlined what it believes to be the key consumer services topic areas that will affect the world’s mobile operators in 2015 and it looks like the mobile market is set set for a fight.

IBM and data centres behemoth Equinix have formally announced an agreement to provide direct access to cloud services from IBM’s SoftLayer cloud subsidiary from Equinix data centres around the world, including Sydney. News of the deal had leaked earlier in the week.

Unsuspecting mobile device users are being targeted by the Xsser mobile remote access Trojan (mRAT), with attackers, described as “malicious actors”, tricking users into downloading unverified apps.

Consumer group ACCAN has congratulated the Government on its inclusion of ‘accessibility’ in the current Request for Tender for ICT hardware and services.

An expected surge in demand for specialist IT skill sets next year is likely to mean there will be a shortage of appropriately qualified professionals to fill the demand. Could this be a signal for IT trainers to gear up their operations or will it simply mean increased calls for more 457 visas?
