Melbourne IT Landscape

 As the centre of the State of Victoria's ICT industry, Melbourne hosts over 8,000 companies, including many international firms such as IBM, Microsoft and Intel.

Melbourne leads the state which has a substantial ICT industry, generating A$34 billion in revenue annually and employing around 91,300 people directly. Lifestyle is a major drawcard: Melbourne recently ranked first in the global human capital and lifestyle index. In the past five years, nearly 20,000 new technology professionals moved to Melbourne which produces more ICT graduates than any other Australian city.

Software development firms in Melbourne form a mature, well-connected and highly talented, innovative ecosystem. They collaborate in supportive start-up business environments and seek opportunities in sector clusters such as Open Source Victoria, the Australian Software Innovation Forum, eLearning, Spatial Victoria, and the Game Developers Association of Australia (GDAA).

 As a core centre for world-class universities, Melbourne is a magnet for talent. A recent national report into research excellence (produced by the Australian Research Council) in the information and computing sciences recognises Monash University's performance as 'above world standard', and the University of Melbourne's as 'delivering outstanding performance, well above world standard'.

Melbourne is the technology hub for NBN Co, hosting the NBN Co National Operations Centre (NOC) and the backup NOC. The national broadband network (NBN) is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Australia's history, and one of the largest broadband networks in the world. The project will provide high-speed broadband access to Australian homes and businesses via fibre to the node (FTTN) services.
