Cloud Ctrl Blog
You can do your bit to help us win reader’s choice by going to http://anthillonline.com/cloud-ctrl-smart-100-2017/ and sharing the love. So grateful.
The SMART 100 Index was created by leading business media channel Anthill Magazine in 2008 to identify and rank Australia’s 100 most innovative products, proving to be one of the largest surveys of its kind in Australia. 50 Maven judges have place SixPivot in this …year’s top100 we will find out where we place at the awards night held in Sydney 13 June 2017.
The Readers’ Choice Index provides an opportunity for Anthill readers to vote on SMART 100 applications. Site visitors need only take one or more of the following actions to vote:
1. Share it: On Facebook or LinkedIn (3 points)
2. Tweet it: Top left of each page (2 points, for each tweet)
3. Trigger a Reaction: Facebook ‘Like’, etc. (1 point)
NOTE: The Readers’ Choice is different to our own internal judging. The SMART100 Index will be determined by our 50 anonymous maven judges and their collective wisdom.
Wish us luck tomorrow night as we compete in the QLD state iAwards. For anyone attending Braden Voigt and Faith Rees will be there, they will also be at the innovation showcase on the night, so come along and say hello! https://lnkd.in/gzqh2tq
1. THE BEGINNING
This innovation initially came to life when…
…co-founders Faith and Braden were working for an ASX listed professional services company and each day the customers they were talking to were having issues reconciling their cloud consumption bills from AWS and Microsoft (Azure). Braden came up with an idea. Through skunk works they built the first version of the product. They both left their employer and started SixPivot, and they realised that their old employer had shelved the product so they asked to buy the IP. After a successful negotiation they continued the development of the product and soft launched Cloud Ctrl for general production in Dec 2015.
