The challenges facing today's businesses and governments may be complicated, but there's one thing most agree on: regardless of the problem, we all want software that works and data we can trust. At Data61, we provide both, and along the way we help solve real world problems, through highly customised out-of-the-box solutions.

Our expertise runs both wide and deep. We provide data management, analytics and computation platforms; help overcome the challenges that come with decentralised data ownership; tackle cybersecurity; assist 'big data' to be shared and integrated; and develop systems which ensure that the data used in our partners' decision making can be trusted.

Where we work

Our work has already impacted critical decision making software in the aviation, automotive, medical and defence industries; been used in enterprise and cloud systems; and is part of the Internet of Things. In addition, Data61's experts are increasingly being relied on to develop and support cyber security and high assurance systems; urban systems, transport and logistics; and computation platforms in both business and science.
