Hi Spadge and your husband being 46 does mean he cannot apply for an independent skilled visa but it does not necessarily need to mean there is not a way.
There is no age restriction on employer sponsored temporary residency visas and they can lead to an employer sponsored permanent residency visa which have age exemption provisions and it may even be possible that he could be eligible to apply for an employer sponsored permanent residency visa off the bat.
Have a look at eligibility requirement @ Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration

Finding an eligible and agreeable employer is another task and obviously from abroad can take some doing but there are companies about that may be able to assist.
Jamie Smith's organisation Home might be able to help.
Tell him wanderer said hello.

Given the rate that universities and colleges seem to churn out IT grads., there must be some demand even if it is a competitive field and if your husband has good experience in a desired field, that along with good english will at least give him some advantage to finding an employer prepared to sponsor.
He may want to consider getting a business ETA to do a recce trip and have some face to face meetings with potential employers.
It could be that he will also want to focus on WA or Queensland where a lot of resources development is on the go or planned and something of a drain has occurred re available people in other areas.
For WA, have a look @ Welcome — WALGA for starters and from there you'll be able to access the various regional councils and check out vacancies.
