Australia and New Zealand are innovative nations. We create and build world class innovative products, yet our local software industries are not flourishing the way they could. Iain Rouse, Managing Director of AWS A-NZ, will examine how we can support the growth of our tech sectors and better invest in our local technologies. How can we as an industry foster a technology boom to aid in driving Australia's Digital Agenda and provide a digital workforce for a digital economy.
