Below Professor Arie Freiberg discusses the importance of the SACStat solution:

The iAward is presented for outstanding ICT innovation dedicated to delivering improved government service delivery to the community.  In the words of the judging panel, they received an outstanding number of quality nominations and they were inspired by the caliber of ICT innovation that was nominated. The minister commented in his address that the iAwards theme of “Driving Productivity through Innovation” was key to the success of Australia at a state and national level.

Chief Judge, Jim Ellis, AO, commented on the calibre of this year’s iAwards winners stating, “The iAwards focuses on innovation, so it’s no surprise that this year’s winning entries clearly differentiated and demonstrated uniqueness in their category as the best in their state.”

Mr Ellis led more than 80 judges  for  this year’s iAwards program. “All of the Victorian winners are shining examples of their local industry,” he added.
