2017-02 Compucon ISO 9001 Certification Re-validated Print
February 2017

A Telarc Quality Management System auditor visited Compucon on 2017-01-20 with the goal of obtaining evidence for re-validating the ISO 9001:2008 certificate that Compucon has been holding for many years. The audit confirmed that all aspects have been complied with and the certification is thus re-validated. The auditor took the opportunity of finding if Compucon was ready for ISO 9001:2015 which is intended to replace ISO 9001:2008 in September 2018. The answer is affirmative although Compucon shall produce an internal documentation to support the new certification standard.

2013-11 New Zealand Government Announcement on SKA Print
December 2013

New Zealand Government Press Release, 26 November 2013

For the original and full announcement, see this:

Announcement Two New Zealand research groups have secured prominent positions in one of the world’s largest and most ambitious science projects – the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope, Science and Innovation Minister Steven Joyce announced today. AUT University and Victoria University of Wellington will lead two work areas in the pre-construction of the SKA. These two areas are in the Central Signal Processor and the Science Data Processor work packages, working alongside other New Zealand experts.

“While this is a radio astronomy project, one of its exciting features is that the quantity of information that will be gathered by this instrument will be massive; it requires major leaps in information and communication technology to manage, store and interpret the data. One of the encouraging features of the SKA project is that a project of this size and complexity can only be achieved through collaboration which will develop and deepen our international linkages. The work with international groups is exciting – more than 350 scientists and engineers, from 18 countries, and from more than 100 institutions will be involved. This is an unprecedented opportunity for New Zealand to showcase our expertise in ICT and software development. During the SKA’s three-year design phase a significant number of New Zealand organisations will be involved including the University of Auckland, Massey University, Victoria University Wellington, Callaghan Innovation, Compucon New Zealand, University of Otago, IBM, Green Button and Open Parallel.”

Editor's note: Compucon is a member of the Central Signal Processing design team
