Week in brief June 19 2012
All the smaller business-related news to emerge this week, including: Major US defence contractor buys Canberra SME; Institute of Public Accountants launches “I Heart Small Busines Day”; and more.
Australian Defence Magazine reports that M5 Network Security, a Canberra-based SME that provides cybersecurity and secure mobile communications products and services, and advanced analytics to Australian military and intelligence organisations, has been acquired by Northrop Grumman Corporation, one of the largest defence contractors in the world. Goes to show that Aussie SMEs can mix it with the best of them. Nice one.
A new DIY website creation and management platform has been launched that claims to be the new low cost solution to building robust websites via popular website platform, WordPress. Created by the Digital Marketing Agency and called WebsiteOnWP.com, the product is said to provide a platform to create a website quickly and easily on WordPress, with packages ranging from $10, $20 or $30 a month. If you’re one of the two-thirds of Australian SMEs that don’t have a website, as we recently reported here, then this might be for you.
