"Informal support systems operate quite extensively within the Park, with people sharing technical tips and tricks.  I think it would be very difficult to find an alternate location that would satisfy our needs."

"The relationship with Federation University has been a long standing and mutually beneficial one of which IBM is very proud. IBM has benefited not just in terms of being able to utilise a quality workforce that includes undergraduate and post graduate students, but also in generating an ongoing talent pool for IBM IT Services Centre, as well as other local businesses, once students have graduated. 

We currently employ approximately 650 people at our Ballarat facility and we expect the IBM IT Services Centre to continue to expand as we maintain our commitment to the Ballarat region by aligning our strategy, skills requirements and employee growth in software development, IT consulting services and technical support areas".

"The Ballarat Technology Park provides all the services required to establish a modern, highly productive business with state-of-the-art ICT connectivity. The proximity to Federation University was also a key attraction from the standpoint of recruiting and training a new and skilled workforce.

"When looking for a location to set up Thacient Software Australia, our decision criteria included:

  • easy access to major markets;
  • a good local IT skills base;
  • low-risk start-up environment with headroom for growth; and, of course
  • the cost structure and flexibility to suit a potential high-growth company.

The Park satisfied this criteria and rather than just being a passive provider of infrastructure, the Park has provided us with an active growth environment to support our aspirations.  We couldn't be happier".
