SAGE-AU


SAGE-AU

SAGE-AU is an Australian non-profit professional association of system administrators. SAGE-AU was originally formed to provide the same services for Australian system administrators as the SAGE organisation did in the United States, but is completely independent of that entity, and has been since SAGE-AU's formation in 1993. SAGE-AU is incorporated in the state of Victoria.

SAGE-AU's mission is to provide services to System Administrators to assist in their day-to-day work.
