NZSA News: April 2014

We’ve got a new look!

The New Zealand Software Association has rebranded and we hope you like our fresh new look. The logo represents the diversity of the software industry and the valuable connections members make through the association.

What else is new?

  • A membership ‘badge’ for our members to promote their status on email signatures or websites.
  • A new look to our website – to be unveiled at the event tomorrow!

Our friends at IITP have launched a survey on the impact of software procurement on IT project failure. If you have been involved in software development or responding to IT-related procurement requests, they want to hear from you. We look forward to seeing their results.
