Christchurch IT firms continue operations after quake

Christchurch IT firms continue operations after quake

From the IT industry’s perspective, one of the major casualties of Saturday’s Christchurch earthquake was the Canterbury Software Summit, which was scheduled to take place tomorrow.

The event, which was to have run from 12.15pm until 7pm at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Cashel St, has been postponed.

Canterbury Software Cluster chair David Johnstone says “we’ve made the decision to postpone it and an email will be going out to delegates this morning.

“The hotel is fine, but there’s not access to the CBD at the moment and many delegates are otherwise engaged – going to a conference won’t be their choice at the moment.

“We’ll be getting a plan out re alternative dates once the dust has settled.

The re-scheduled conference will take place in October or November, Johnstone says.

Jade Software’s Christchurch development centre is up and running, and back-up at the centre “worked as planned”, Jade chief innovation officer John Ashcroft says.
