The SAGE-AU logo.

SAGE-AU was 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 was completely independent of that entity since SAGE-AU's formation in 1993. SAGE-AU was incorporated in the state of Victoria.

SAGE-AU's mission was to provide services to system administrators to assist in their day-to-day work. In October 2016, SAGE-AU was formally wound up and its assets were transferred to ITPA (Information Technology Professionals Association).[1]

Major activities[edit]
