Finite grows its government business


Specialist IT recruiter, Finite IT Recruitment Solutions, has stormed ahead with business growth over 2010-2011, particularly in the government sector, writing contracts across all if its business segments to the tune of $50.6 million and ensuring a third placed ranking in the recruitment sector this year, according to a labour hire report just released.

Market research firm Intermedium confirms in its latest report that Finite IT is now ranked third overall, writing 345 contracts valued at $50,670,000 which represents a six percent market share for the Sydney-based, national recruitment firm.

Intermedium says Finite achieved 'significant growth' in federal government labour hire, with business in the sector up 140 percent year on year. The report confirms that a total of 6,581 labour hire contracts were reported in AusTender - the Australian Government's central tender system - during 2010-11, with a combined value of $864.5 million.  In comparison with 2009-10, there was a decrease in value of one percent and a decrease of two percent in the number of contracts.

Finite IT's managing director, Tracy Thomson, said that last year the company grew contract values by 44 percent and was ranked in ninth position with a three percent market share.

'The expanded Canberra team, combined with a successful local acquisition in 2010, has greatly assisted our significant growth in the ACT Federal Government market.  We are also making steady progress winning further Federal Government business around the country, which is very encouraging.'

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
