Innovative simulation software that enables Australian organisations to manage water and carbon resources more efficiently has won a prestigious double prize in South Australia’s iAwards competition.
The SimulAIt program, developed by Adelaide-based Intelligent Software Development, collected awards in both the financial application category and the sustainability and green IT award.
SimulAIt is a powerful simulation application that is used to create virtual cities to model and test products, policies or infrastructure, especially in high impact areas such as water management and climate change.
With the i standing for innovation, the iAwards are Australia's leading ICT industry awards. Each year, the Australian Information Industry Association runs the iAwards as a member of the Asia-Pacific ICT Alliance Awards to deliver an international awards program to the Australian technology community.

Australian technology entrepreneur Marty Gauvin has left Hostworks, the company he founded 10 years ago, after successfully overseeing its acquisition by Broadcast Australia.
Although Marty intends to maintain a number of roles within not-for-profit organisations and fulfil his existing public speaking engagements, his immediate intention is to look at the available opportunities for starting a new business.
Marty said the move on from Hostworks was a logical progression in his professional development. “I’m confident I leave Hostworks in good hands, with a strong management team and an excellent track record in terms of customer care and support,” he said.
