Oniqua MRO Analytics (www.oniqua.com), the leading provider of analytics-based MRO optimization solutions for asset-intensive organizations, today announced it won first place at the 50th Australian Export Awards presented at a gala event in Canberra, Australia on 27 November 2012. Oniqua was also a first place winner and finalist in three categories at the Premier of Queensland Export Awards ceremony held in Queensland, Australia.
Australian Export Award winners demonstrate resilience, ingenuity and a commitment to Australia’s economic future. The Award categories reflect the diversity of the size, industry and variety of Australia’s exporters; and the program rewards and profiles the "best of the best" businesses around the nation. From manufacturing to mining, agribusiness to the arts, tourism and education, businesses across all industries, regardless of size or location are acknowledged.
“Our exporters are doing the state proud,” stated Mr. Campbell Newman, the Honourable Premier of Queensland. “I am pleased that the Australian Agricultural Company, BROWNS English Language School and Oniqua MRO Analytics won their categories. That is a tremendous outcome for those Queensland exporters.”
The Australian Export Awards is a national program that recognizes and honors Australian companies engaged in international business who have achieved sustainable growth through innovation and commitment. The Awards measure businesses against their peers based on the strength of their international growth, marketing and financial strategies.
“On behalf of the entire Oniqua team, we are extremely proud and honored to be the recipients of these first place awards at both the Territory and National level, which acknowledge and recognize our significant achievements in export,” stated Andy Hill, cofounder and CEO, Oniqua MRO Analytics. “These achievements are highlighted by recent global implementations of Oniqua Analytics Solution by many marquee blue-chip clients. Our repeated and consistent success is a result of many years of hard work, a dedicated team and our ability to continually develop and deliver innovative solutions.”
Headquartered in Brisbane and founded in 1990, Oniqua began exporting in 1995 and has maintained strong and consistent growth over its 22-year history. Oniqua’s software solutions manage over $6 billion of equipment and assets across hundreds of customer sites around the world. Oniqua’s international success has grown in recent years as companies increasingly turn to solutions that have a proven capability to lower operational costs, minimize waste, enhance service levels and improve overall asset and business performance.
With clients located across the world in the Mining, Oil & Gas, Utilities, Manufacturing and Transportation industries, 80 percent of Oniqua’s revenue comes from exports. Many asset-intensive companies around the world rely on Oniqua Analytics Solutions to help minimize costs and maximize efficiencies, including (but not limited to):
- BHP Billiton – Minera Escondida (Chile), Pampa Norte (Chile), and Cerro Matoso (Columbia)
- Bermuda Electric Light Company
- Drummond Company
- Freeport McMoRan Copper and Gold
- Hawaiian Electric Company
- Nebraska Public Power District
- Newmont Mining Company
- Orange County Transportation Authority
- Rio Tinto
- Xstrata Copper
The Awards program is made possible through the collaboration of all the States and Territories, who each independently run their export awards programs. The Awards operates as a two-tier process: exporters first achieve state distinction through their local State and Territory export award program. Local winners then progress as national finalists and are benchmarked against their peers across the country, with winners receiving national recognition for their international success.
Oniqua took first place in the Small to Medium Services category at the Queensland Export Awards, and was a finalist in both the Information & Communication Technology and Minerals & Energy categories. Andy Hill, cofounder and CEO of Oniqua, and Chris Wright, cofounder and President of APAC, Oniqua, were presented the first place award at a ceremony held on November 9th.
The Premier of Queensland's Export Awards is an annual program that is open to all Queensland exporters, large and small, regional and metropolitan. Exporting companies are renowned for being leaders in seeking opportunities, leading with innovation and creating jobs for Queenslanders.
After winning first place at the Premier of Queensland Export Awards, Oniqua was progressed as a national finalist at the Australian Export Awards, where it won first place in the overall Small to Medium Services category. Andy Hill, cofounder and CEO of Oniqua, and Peter Jacob, CFO of Oniqua, were presented the first place award at a recent gala event in the Great Hall at Parliament House in Canberra on Tuesday 27 November 2012.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
