“Globally, the New Zealand government leads the way in a number of areas because of the all-of-government approach.

There is a real opportunity to extend that with technologies such as Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

“The benefit of being a world leader in technology means Dimension Data can take advantage of developments happening across the globe, adapt them locally and deliver secure and innovative solutions.

“An industry trend we are seeing is an increasing level of digitisation and for government this means a need to centralise management across all agencies.

Matt joins Dimension Data from IBM, where he led the government, social and health sectors, and prior to that has also held senior roles at Spark, Unisys, Zintel and Novell.

Christie believes the New Zealand government is well placed to be world leaders in the digital space, with the whole industry moving towards design-led approaches and agile ways of working.
