Dimension Data is making a big push for government business.

Dimension Data is continuing its drive for government business in New Zealand, recruiting a new national sales manager for the sector.

The appointment of Matt Christie follows an expansion of government service offerings and wins in the recent all-of-government Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS) supplier panel review, that sees the provider offer new services across connectivity, security and communications.

“We see this appointment as strengthening our capabilities and providing an opportunity for us to innovate even further with our clients,” said Simone Moors, sales and marketing director, Dimension Data.

Christie has worked for over 21 years in the industry, joining Dimension Data from IBM, where he led the government, social and health sectors. Previously, Christie also held senior roles at Spark, Unisys, Zintel and Novell.

Dimension Data said it continues to strengthen all-of-government offerings in all TaaS towers, boasting the most service types of all providers, which enables the business to deliver end-to-end services as a single provider.

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

"There is an increasing focus on delivering digital solutions, and our size means we can deliver this much faster than other countries. There is a real opportunity to extend that with technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence."

Christie said the two things that attracted him to the role was the portfolio of services and capacity to grow in the local market.

According to Christie, 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.

Last year, ahead of the TaaS panel review, Dimension Data rolled out a single point ICT managed service in New Zealand, including full telecommunications fixed line voice, mobile voice and mobile data services.
