Solnet has appointed Nick Evans to the newly created position of IT transformation director, in response to growing appetite for digital technologies across the country.
Effective immediately, the new role within the Wellington-based company’s senior executive team reflects the consultancy firm’s growth and focus on capitalising on the need for digital transformation at the enterprise level.
“There’s plenty of talk about digital transformation and it’s commanding significant attention at senior levels across the country, as organisations move to improve their digital product offerings,” Solnet managing director, Mark Botherway, said.
“However, the reality is that for large government and enterprise-class organisations, digital transformation is as much about strategy and execution as it is technology.
“Nick, with his experience in large-scale projects, team management, solutions delivery and operations, has the perfect mix of talents for this new role.
"He’s leading a team of specialists who have the diverse range of skills needed to help organisations successfully execute their digital transformation strategy to deliver tangible value.”
Evans joined Solnet in 2000 and has held several management positions including service delivery and operations, where he oversaw the implementation of a number of large, enterprise IT projects across both government and corporate.
“Successful digital transformation requires changing an organisation's IT to be more responsive and innovative,” Evans added.
“Solnet has long-standing professional relationships with both government agencies and enterprise clients, and we understand the size and complexity of their challenges in this area.
“Solnet has the vision, along with depth of experience and technical capability needed to help our clients successfully leverage their IT assets for rapid, customer-centric digital innovation.”
As technology consultants, Solnet works with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Red Hat, MuleSoft, providing strategy, experience design, technology delivery and support services for New Zealand businesses.
