Australia's open source industry received a boost this week with the launch of boutique consulting and research firm Waugh Partners.

The brainchild of husband and wife team Pia and Jeff Waugh, Waugh Partners has three main focus areas - strategic consulting, industry development, and research and analysis.

Strategic consulting will advise businesses how to build open source into their IT strategies, industry development aims to address the need for open source skills development and aid open source companies with media exposure, and the research and analysis division will provide independent research on the challenges and opportunities for open source in the local market.

Pia and Jeff are certainly two peas in a pod with Pia working part-time as research coordinator for Australian Service for Knowledge on Open Source Software (ASK-OSS) at Macquarie University, and Jeff a founding member of Ubuntu Linux at Canonical.
