Sydney, Wednesday 27th June, 2001
- ISYS Search Software is proud to announce the inclusion of ISYS Knowledge
Management Software in the Powerhouse Museum s latest online project
Australia Innovates, which lists the 100 most important Australian innovations
of the Twentieth Century.
Launched earlier this month, the Powerhouse
Museum has created a website focusing on the role of Australian innovation
over the last century. It is timed to commemorate the 100th Year of Federation
as well as the 25th Anniversary of the founding of the Australian Academy
of Technological Sciences and Engineering. The project aims to promote
awareness of the achievements of Australian inventors.
We are extremely honoured and excited
for ISYS to be included amongst the likes of the Cochlear Implant, the
Black Box Flight Recorder, Vegemite and the application of Penicillin,
said Managing Director of ISYS Search Software, Ian Davies.
The Museum and the Academy have selected
a diverse collection of Innovations, ranging from World Series Cricket
to the Atomic Absorption Spectrometer. The exhibit is divided into categories
covering all aspects
of Australian life and innovation. There are currently 90 on the website
with the Museum asking the public to nominate the last ten.
ISYS Knowledge Management Software is developed
in Australia by ISYS Search Software and exported worldwide. The software
was originally developed by Ian Davies in 1987 and since then ISYS
has grown into a multinational company with offices in the USA and UK.
