    The CIO Show: How much are you worth?

    The CIO Show: How much are you worth?

    In this episode of ‘The CIO Show’ we take a look at the latest data out on IT salaries in Australia, and the discuss current the trends in this most unusual of years for the sector and those working within it.
    Nicole Gorton, APAC director with global recruiter, Robert Half, provides a deep dive on the company’s recently published A/NZ Salary Guide 2020, revealing the range of salaries currently on offer across the key tech jobs here and across the ditch. But she urges employers – and candidates - to think beyond just money.
    And AIIA chief executive, Ron Gauci, shares some choice findings from the industry body’s own ‘Remuneration Report’, as well as its new whitepaper ‘'Building Australia’s digital future in a post-COVID world', which provides ample food for thought about Australia’s future as a tech-driven economy with a vastly larger tech workforce.

    The CIO Show: Is the cloud really cheaper?

    The CIO Show: Is the cloud really cheaper?

    It’s an assumption that has been allowed to grow unchecked for some time, however the jury is officially still out on whether public cloud infrastructure is cheaper than running on-premises data centres.
    In this episode we talk to Nine’s chief information and technology officer Damian Cronan about his long journey managing the costs and applications of the cloud, as well as Rohan Penman, CIO with bespoke Tea brand T2 Tea, who shares a rather alarming anecdote about how series cloud bill shock can get.
    And Gartner’s Chris Ganly confirms what many of us suspect, that there’s still plenty of confusion about cloud pricing still out there, even amongst quite senior tech leaders.

    The CIO Show: Women in IT, part 2

    The CIO Show: Women in IT, part 2

    In this the second of our two-part episode on ‘Women in IT’ we delve a little deeper into what sexual discrimination looks like, and continuing the broader conversation about diversity, while also sharing some important facts that really challenge some of the key assumptions in this debate.
    And as one of Australia’s most respected and successful technologists, Marie Johnson argues, discrimination and the need for diversity are issues that transcend gender. Just ask anyone who’s differently abled, or indeed, anyone who’s not ‘white’.
    Still, Gartner VP Christie Struckman believes women especially can experience ‘death by 1000 cuts’, making it harder to actually retain them in the IT industry.
    We conclude with Bill Von Hippel, professor of evolutionary biology at The University of Queensland, who says that for the most part women – just like men – who have the talent and potential to succeed in the IT industry make their own choices, rather than being the victims of discrimination. Which is not to say it doesn’t exist.
    But as Hippel notes, participation of women in STEM disciplines and careers in significantly higher in countries like Turkey, UAE and Algeria, say than it is in countries like Sweden, The Netherlands or Finland where women have more tights and freedoms. But really, how do we distinguish between ‘discrimination’ and the normal push-and-shove, tensions that naturally arise especially in fast-paced, at times stressful industries like tech? 
    It’s probably time to retire some long-held assumptions and start asking different questions.

    This episode of ‘The CIO Show’ is the first of our two-part programme on Women in IT, where we tackles the questions of how many women are currently working in the sector – including in leadership roles – are there too few, and what can be done about it.
