Attachmate promises 40 new jobs in Melbourne APAC HQ


The Attachmate Group of companies today opened its Asia Pacific headquarters in Melbourne, committing to create 40 new highly skilled jobs. The Attachmate set up in Victoria comes in the wake of the government's release of its $85 million plan to promote and support ICT-enabled innovation in the state.

The global software company's four business units - Attachmate, NetIQ, Novell and SUSE - have been brought together to be headquartered in the new Melbourne office, which was officially opened today by Victoria's Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips. The office is located in the inner-Melbourne suburb of South Yarra.

Welcoming the Attachmate consolidation of its functions, operations and Asia Pacific decision-making in Melbourne, Mr Rich-Phillips said securing the company's Asia Pacific headquarters in Melbourne 'further cements Victoria's reputation as a globally competitive ICT hub.'

'This is a globally important technology company that has, individually, revolutionised information and communication technology (ICT) in areas such as operations management, open source, end user computing and collaboration, and cloud computing.

'This announcement follows the release of Victoria's Technology Plan for the Future - Information and Communication Technology - an $85 million plan to promote ICT-enabled innovation and support the growth of internationally competitive and recognised ICT businesses, such as The Attachmate Group.'

The Minister said the government is investing in the ICT sector to 'ensure that the right conditions exist in Victoria to support the growth of ICT businesses and boost Victoria's digital economy.'

Attachmate Group vice president and general manager Asia Pacific, Boris Ivancic said the Asia Pacific was a very important region for the company and a huge growth area for it.

'Victoria is a great place to do business with many international technology companies situated here and being in Victoria will enable us to better respond to and service our customers in Australia and New Zealand.'
