For over ten years, Cloudstreet Consulting has not only produced some of the most innovative dashboards and apps for the Northern Territory and the world but also provided vast opportunities for those entering Darwin’s IT market through their various training options.
Founded by Colin Huggett (deceased) in 2011 to support and run the whole-of-government accounting and payroll systems, today, Cloudstreet Consulting is Darwin’s leading ICT consulting and training company.
Even back then, Colin knew the future benefits and efficiencies of cloud-based technology, especially to keep everyone connected across the Territory’s vast landscapes, hence the name.
Cloudstreet’s staff and recruited specialists come from far and wide and are as multiculturally diverse as the Territory itself.
“Our recruited specialists include Indigenous Territorians and many culturally rich and diverse nationalities from interstate and overseas,” says Nawrin Mou, Cloudstreet’s recruitment contact.
“Providing the right people for the job is our number one priority. And our premium skillset IT professionals work with multiple government departments and private businesses across the Territory.”
Whether you need a new graduate with the latest qualifications or a highly-skilled professional with decades of experience, Cloudstreet has the right consultant for every business and situation.
“Through a partnership with the Government’s graduate employment program, we develop a newcomer’s skills and abilities via an internship, mentoring and support programs,” says Cloudstreet General Manager Rolf Nilsson. “Many of these raw recruits are now highly skilled professionals, with some on our staff after completing their three-month internship.”
With their emphasis firmly fixed on cloud-based computing and leading-edge software, Cloudstreet’s numerous highly skilled ICT professionals have developed a wide range of software solutions for the domestic and international markets.
One is the ‘Power and Water Mobile App’ (available on Android Playstore), which connects business or household users Territory-wide, allowing them to report problems, make payments, connect, disconnect and report outages. All that’s required is mobile phone reception.
Another, Cloudstreet’s Konect program, assists East Arnhem Land Regional Council by providing interactive asset condition monitoring and defect management of roads, street lighting, bin management, playgrounds and public infrastructure assets in real-time.
“The app has captured more than 1200 kilometres of road network data,” says the council’s strategic project coordinator, Natasha Jackson. “It’s produced massive cost savings, improved productivity, auditability and increased our knowledge of the seasonal effects on the roads, future maintenance and capital planning.”
“As locals, we know what works across the Territory,” says Rolf. “Remoteness isn’t a barrier for our programs or services. All operate effectively across the Territory’s remotest regions while providing powerful data management and reporting.”
Cloudstreet’s solutions de-risk data management across the Territory while allowing people access to their data wherever they are.
Cloudstreet is now one of Microsoft Learning’s fastest-growing partners, with eight Microsoft Certified and Accredited Trainers covering Microsoft’s entire eco-system.
Training covers all their products and cloud services. Cloudstreet can help with Azure, Office 365 and Powerapps Power BI, Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents, amongst others that help organise data and extract reports and dashboards from multiple data sources accurately, efficiently and quickly.
“When people have certifications and micro-credentials, it shows they’re keeping pace with the changes in the industry. Another advantage of Microsoft certified courses is that they can progress into career-enhancing accreditations,” says Rolf.
