So long as we meet one or more of those criteria, we have given ourselves permission to talk about almost anything. Feel free to read, join the conversation and share in the experience.
Speedwell is excited to announce that we have been successful in achieving a position on the Digital Service Professionals Panel of the Australian Government Digital Transformation Office (DTO).
The Digital Transformation Office (DTO) was created to work with government agencies, users and private sector partners to deliver a better experience for Australians using government services. As part of the Prime Minister’s portfolio the Digital Service Standard ensures that digital teams will create systems that are simpler, clearer and faster for all users.
Thanks for your support!
This year over 1400 Australian business leaders joined the 2016 ‘Vinnies CEO Sleepout’ to raise crucial funds that will provide emergency assistance to the women, children and men who need it most.
Thank you to those who contributed $1000 in support of Bruce and the great work of the St Vincent de Paul Society.
It is difficult to believe that in such an incredible and “lucky” country there are 105,000 Australians – including an increasing number of women and young children who struggle to survive and have no place to call home. Did you know:
- 24,000 are homeless because of domestic and family violence
- 27% are children
- Many Australians are only two pay days away from being homeless
Homelessness is a real statistic and can happen to anyone. We need to unite as a community to eradicate the homeless statistic by giving hope and assistance to the most vulnerable in our society. On 23 June I will join other business leaders in the 2016 Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout to support the challenge of raising awareness and much-needed funds to support the homeless in our community. Please help me to make a difference to the lives of others.
Thank you for your support.
Recently, our General Manager James Radvan was invited to contribute to the Digital Brisbane blog in order to share some of Speedwell’s digital industry knowledge with Brisbane’s small business community.
Speedwell works with a lot of businesses of all sizes in Brisbane, and we deal with many of the same concerns over and over. One of the common ones is web security, and James deals with that in his first article.

As systems grow in complexity, coverage and accuracy of testing via manual systems becomes too labour intensive. Automation assists the team to achieve maintainability and flexibility of test suites, identifying issues quickly to ensure they are resolved at an early stage. Automation can be done repetitively and adds additional testing that would be difficult to cover through manual testing.
The last couple of months have been abuzz with talk about a critical vulnerability found in Google’s Android OS. Since then Google has developed two patches to fix the problem. If you own a recent Google Nexus device, it is likely that you have received an update to patch up this vulnerability. Similarly, if you own a brand-name Android phone, you may also be protected. So what is the state of play now regarding Stagefright? Let’s start from the beginning…
