Gold Coast ICT Capability Study 2011

Thursday, September 29, 2011
If you are on the Gold Coast, or have been involved with IT Forum Gold Coast, then commun-iT will be contacting you shortly to ask you to take part in the IT Forum Gold Coast ICT Capability Survey. By completing the survey your company will go into the Gold Coast ICT Capability Study, promoting your company to the market and helping to inform IT industry development policy for the Gold Coast.

About the Survey

The IT Forum Gold Coast (ITFGC) has engaged commun-iT to work with the Forum in conducting the 2011 Gold Coast ICT Capability Study.

The gathering of information (business profiles and survey data) will be achieved through both this website (
www.commun-it.com.au) by commun-iT (the trading name of Maat Solutions Pty Ltd), developer and owner of the site, and the Gold Coast ICT Forum website (www.itforumgoldcoast.com.au), developed independently by Maat and ITFGC respectively. 

Each entity is separately owned and operated, however commun-iT will be sharing common data relating to the Gold Coast IT related businesses.  Survey data will not be shared with other parties other than in an aggregated form so as to not identify individuals or individual businesses.  Only publicly disclosed non-confidential information and data for which consent has been given, will form the business directory.  All data will be collected and used only in accordance with the privacy statements of the respective websites and privacy legislation.

How will data be collected?

Gold Coast businesses will be contacted by commun-IT, inviting them to complete details of their business and to complete the capability survey.  This data shall be used to compile a final report into the Gold Coast ICT capabilities.

Completing the above details will not cost Gold Coast businesses anything.  All such businesses that complete all of the data will be placed with a full business listing on the ITFGC Business Directory at their website.  In addition all Gold Coast businesses that are IT suppliers will receive a free basic listing on “commun-IT”.

How will it benefit ITFGC members?

Existing financial members of ITFGC at the time of survey launch will receive a free “bronze” level membership in “commun-IT” for 1 year. Non-members of ITFGC may choose to take up a “commun-IT” paid membership at their will.

What will happen to the data?

In order to ensure that all Gold Coast business’ data that is available from the ITFGC and commun-iT is consistent and up to date, all data collected in relation to Gold Coast businesses in the IT industry or any related service provider, will be commonly shared between the “commun-IT” and ITFGC databases for a period of 12 months.  Anyone choosing to extend or take up a membership with “commun-IT” will be shared with the ITFGC database for a further 12 months.

Under the terms of Agreement between the Forum and the GCCC and the Queensland State Government, the Forum will provide to each party a copy of the business directory data with aggregated anonymous survey data provided to Gold Coast City Council upon request and approval from ITFGC.

Keep abreast of developments with the IT Forum Gold Coast (ITFGC) Capability Study 2011, where updates will be posted of their progress, outcomes and final results.  If anyone wishes to make comment or provide input to this project then they should contact the Forum’s project Manager, Greg Tomkins, through this website, or contact him on (07) 5526 4014.
