29 Research and Development NICTA is Australia s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Research Centre of Excellence and the largest organisation in Australia dedicated to ICT research. NICTA drives innovation through high-quality research, research training, technology transfer and commercialisation. NICTA s researchers are located in five laboratories located in four cities around Australia: Sydney (2 laboratories), Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane. Working in specialised teams, they are focused on a series of specific research themes and business areas. Process Architecture, Modelling and Technologies for Business and Government (ArMaTure) NICTA s e-government Performance Assessment for Service Architectures (epasa) team is part of the ArMaTure Project a Project which helps create the understanding and technologies that let organisations work together effectively at both business and technical levels. The epasa is a modelling and simulation technology which allows organisations to confidently build, manage and alter the large complex ICT systems that support the delivery of vital services to customers. It helps users uncover the performance details of large systems and to spot the problem areas that could cause them to fail. The technology can help organisations within the financial services sector to determine whether new customerfacing systems will melt down under heavy load before they are deployed. When used throughout a project lifecycle, epasa will detect serious architectural flaws to save time and massive re-work costs. G12 The G12 software platform helps organisations to optimise complex logistical and resource problems. It helps organisations to work smarter by optimising planning and resourcing. Maximising quality of service, while minimising resource costs is the key to good commercial success. NICTA is developing a software system that can be fed the constraints surrounding any complex logistics schedule, and then optimise it. G12 is a hybrid constraint solving and optimisation platform. It handles: Large-scale complex optimisation problems Flexible, high-level modelling and mapping of languages Integrates the latest algorithms from artificial intelligence and operations research. G12 targets improved industrial optimisation by allowing a problem to be stated independently of solving the approach; allows rapid exploration of different solving approaches and results in process efficiencies and cost savings. Adaptation Engine A range of technologies already exist to provide system monitoring and alerts when things fail. However, organisations within the financial services sector do not have time to wait for systems engineers to trace a problem and reboot the right servers. Downtime not only costs money but frustrated customers. Financial services organisations need an automatic nervous system to plug into their existing environment, sense the performance problems before a disaster arises and adapt in real-time to the ongoing changes in load. NICTA s Adaptation Engine provides a plug-in which is an automatic nervous system for service-oriented architecture (SOA) environments. It is applied non-intrusively and works at the boundaries of integrated services so no radical alteration to existing systems or their integration points are required. For more information on NICTA visit or call NICTA is funded by the Australian Commonwealth Government through the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy and the Australian Research Council. NICTA members include the Australian Capital Territory Government, the New South Wales Government, The University of New South Wales and the Australian National University. NICTA partners include the University of Sydney, the Victorian Government, the University of Melbourne, the Queensland Government, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology and the University of Queensland. 22

30 Research and Development The Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre (CMCRC) is a $100 million dollar research facility backed by the Australian Federal Government (Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, DIISR), which involves the collaboration of leading Universities, domestic and international industry research partners and the NSW State Government. The CMCRC positions itself as a bridge between the practical needs of capital markets and pioneering academic research to build systems and services to address complex financial problems. The CMCRC has three main areas of research and development: 1. Surveillance of security markets to identify market misconduct and abuses to enhance market integrity. 2. Insurance industry business intelligence systems to detect abnormal behaviour and patterns in insurance claims. 3. Special projects that include automated trading algorithm development, automated text mining, market impact cost analysis and educational learning products (TrADeLab). The primary objective of CMCRC research is to design systems and services to enhance market integrity. While the emphasis has been on the integrity of securities markets, more recently attention has also been devoted to the health insurance and general insurance sectors. Among the achievements in the first 7 year term (2001 to 2007) of the CRC was a new system to assist stock brokers to share the responsibility for security market integrity with exchanges and regulators. The resulting product ( was subsequently commercialised and is now used by 150 brokers in 30 countries. Refunded in 2007 the new CMCRC has set out to design and help implement a fully outsourced cross-market surveillance function. Toward this goal the CMCRC has initiated path breaking research in the mining of textual (unstructured) data, one result of which is the ability to correlate up to 40% of unusual price alerts with information (or related) announcements. Future work will address the specifics within the text with a view to assisting surveillance analysts explaining price behaviour. This is expected to result in economies of scope in the surveillance process. When added to economies of scale, this is expected to provide the impetus for stock exchanges to engage in fully outsourced cross-market surveillance, a major objective of the second term of the CMCRC. CMCRC Research Partners include: Stock Exchanges: Australia, London, Hong Kong, Singapore, OMX Exchanges Regulators: APRA, ASIC, FSA (UK), IRROC (Canada) Technology: SMARTS, Capital Markets Surveillance Services, Advanced Computing & Communications (ac3) Industry: ABN AMRO, BPAY, HCF, IAG, Next Financial, Mondovisione, Schroders (Australia), SIRCA Universities: Macquarie, NSW, Sydney, UTS (Sydney), Wollongong, City (Hong Kong), Reading (UK), York (Canada).
