Oreta has moved two blocks down Collins Street to the iconic Rialto. With our ever-expanding team and a recent merge with a new brand, the change was beckoning.
In the midst of the excitement, not only did we pack up and shift but we also acquired a new brand, Telstra Business Technology Centre (TBTC). The merge brings enormous growth potential, and the ability to diversify and modernise our services, proving that we are a leader in the IT industry.
The recent acquisition will enable Oreta to address the increasingly complex technology needs of small to medium enterprises, including cloud storage and software services, cybersecurity and multi-site networks. We are now well equipped to demonstrate to the business community what is possible with technology and keep them abreast of new and customised technology solutions.
Ideally situated in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, our new space will help differentiate Oreta even further, as being one of a few Cloud companies able to offer a world-class Experience Centre. The Centre is designed to give customers the opportunity to see firsthand the latest technology solutions offered by our partners, including Google and Cisco.
As you walk into our office, you will be greeted by an amazing ‘Front of House’, designed with innovative technology pods. These pods are designed to take collaboration to a new level, where customers’ expectations about what’s possible for their business will be pushed.
Customers will be taken on a journey of discovery, where they will learn what technology solutions are possible for their business, and test and try products like Pixels, Chromebooks and Jamboards (Google), and Webex collaboration tools (Cisco).
Our Collaboration/Partner Pods: Oreta, Google & Cisco
But, there is more to our new space than just our technology pods. In looking at the bigger picture, Oreta will be able to run meetings and events on a much larger scale than ever before with our new seminar/boardroom space, which can cater for over 60 people. These spaces will be used for various internal and external events including Workshops Lunch and Learns, CIO luncheons, and much, much more.
Our recent move and acquisition would not have been as seamless as it was without the amazing work of some of our staff. We would like to extend a massive thank you to;
Josie Germanos, for taking ownership of managing the design of the new office, and ensuring the transition was as smooth as possible. The high-quality business space is a tribute to your tireless efforts. Josh Keats (from TBTC), for the amazing tech fit-out. What amazing job, which customers will continue to talk about for a long time. Curt, Cyril and Rob Scoberg (from Oreta), who were instrumental in working alongside Josh to ensure the tech fit-out ran as smoothly as possible.
When you are in the area, make sure you pop in for a visit. Otherwise, you can make an appointment by phoning 13000 Oreta. We’d love to show you around.
The 2018 Fast50 was the fastest yet: entrants posted an average growth rate of 87.1 percent, up from 2017’s 85.3 percent. Entrants continue to accelerate, and this tells us a lot about the IT industry’s ability to reinvent itself and add new value to the businesses it serves.
Oreta came in at number 25 as a fast-growing company in the Australian IT channel, based on our year-on-year revenue growth. After an entry and judging process running from July to November, we joined the other top companies at a major awards ceremony in Sydney last night.
Telstra has honoured and recognised its top performing partners across the channel in Australia, recognising excellence from a host of emerging and established businesses.

ARN announced the finalists for the 2018 ARN Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA), more than 70 individuals made the final shortlist in 2018, representing more than 50 organisations in the most competitive line-up in the history of the awards.
There were some extraordinary women on the list, and we’re very proud that our very own Rajitha is amongst them. We also want to extend our thanks to ARN for continuing to support, encourage and celebrate women in IT.

Oreta has opened up a new office in Sydney, as the technology provider continues to expand across the country.
Located on 135 King Street, Oreta head of delivery Andrew Jones will take charge of operations, with plans in place to build on the five staff currently housed in New South Wales (NSW).
“Having incubated our business in Melbourne and in such a short period of time created exceptional outcomes for customers in Victoria and South Australia, the logical progression was to replicate the model in the Sydney/NSW market,” Oreta co-founder and director Rajitha Rajasingham told ARN.
“Adding to that, with the encouragement and support from our partner community it was hard to resist the magnetic pull of Sydney.
“Our recent wins in the NSW market provides confirmation that we have made the right decision in expanding our presence in NSW.”
Headquartered in Melbourne, Oreta specialises in cloud, back-up and disaster recovery, security and networking, with expertise across app integration, DevOps and managed services.
Leveraging key vendor partnerships with Telstra, Google Cloud, NetApp, Cisco, Veeam and Palo Alto Networks, the business operates across manufacturing, retail, government, health, logistics and financial services sectors.
Specifically, customers include Victoria State Government, Toyota and Rip Curl, alongside Swisse, Drakes Supermarkets and Australian Red Cross Blood Service.
“Oreta’s sweet spot is in the mid-market and enterprise space, we will be aggressively targeting these customers as well as global customers with who have their Australian offices in Sydney,” Rajasingham added.
In firing warning shots at Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, the tech giant is acting on local market momentum following the launch of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) in Australia only two months ago.
With the ink barely dry, ARN can reveal that Oreta has joined the new-look network in two forms, as a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) partner and also a reseller.
“Google launching a cloud platform in your country is not an everyday occurrence and we wanted to take full advantage,” Oreta managing director Sachin Verma told ARN. “We plan to consume Google’s ecosystem in a focused way, we want to be infrastructure specialists and we want to be known for it.
“We have a razor-sharp focus around how best to utilise the benefits of the platform and will be standing up our workforce to boost our capabilities.”
As reported by ARN, Google officially touched down in a cloud capacity on 21 June, with Sydney becoming part of the nine regions, 27 zones and 100 points of presence comprising the global GCP footprint.
With the green light now flashing, partners and end-users across Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) now have access to a range of locally-sourced GCP services, as the vendor bolsters its cloud footprint throughout the region.
