Online piracy is an important issue that often leads to heated debate with passionate views on all sides. But it is a debate we must have, as more needs to be done to help protect copyright in this country.
There have been a range of views expressed as part of the Government’s consultations around changes to copyright law and there will be further discussion when Malcolm Turnbull hosts a public forum on the issue next week. Telstra is actively participating in this policy process (see our submission here) because this issue is important to our customers and we believe industry needs to take the lead in achieving a reasonable, practical solution to the problem.
The love affair between cloud and business is growing. We know this because a recent IDC Survey of Australian enterprises indicates plans to adopt a hybrid cloud are at around 80 per cent.
With this number so high, how do we best manage the move between traditional IT, public and private cloud environments?
We also know flexibility and choice is a priority for customers, which is why I’m pleased to confirm that Telstra is taking steps to enable this while making the process less complex. We plan to do this by expanding our cloud services portfolio and offering the best in market solutions with a single service management experience.
Our vision? To provide a range of next generation platforms that complements our strategic cloud partnerships. Today we’re announcing that we are partnering with VCE, a joint venture between EMC and Cisco with investment from VMware and Intel to offer private Cloud – Vblock™ Systems.
I’m pleased to share with you Telstra’s Bigger Picture 2014 Sustainability Report.
Our approach to sustainability has evolved and matured considerably over the past few years, and FY14 has been no exception.
This year, we’ve worked to address the issues that matter most to our business and stakeholders, and to embed social and environmental considerations into the heart of our business.
