ZDNet Australia had further executives come to our stand at CeBIT yesterday. They've poured out their wisdom to us on the videos collated in this round-up.

Federal Government CIO Ann Steward and Glenn Archer, Department of Finance and Deregulation's first assistant secretary with the policy and planning division, talked about the government's "tell us once" program, which aims to share citizen information across a number of agencies when users opt in.

Steward stressed that "tell us once" won't involve a central database.

Cudo CEO Billy Tucker talked about the competition between online and bricks-and-mortar retailers, and how the global financial crisis has made using coupons socially allowable.

Outgoing Department of Human Services' IT head John Wadeson talked about consolidating the IT of Human Services agencies and gave his successor some advice.

Anthony Wong, president of the Australian Computer Society, talked to us on day one about firms making sure they understand their business to enable the migration of information to the cloud. He also discussed the issues of having territorial laws, but a global cloud.
