One of our key strengths is our ability to bring together relevant strands of related experience from working with a wide range of government organisations and NGOs, and to bring that knowledge to bear on customer problems and outcomes. This means we can help quickly resolve problems by feeding through ideas and concepts encountered or devised in the past. Our staff regularly tap into the deep knowledge of their colleagues, meaning our customers gain access to the experience and skills of the broader team. Knowledge and experience are shared and are openly available to the team to leverage with other customers, via collaboration tools, internal knowledge base, learning communities, mentoring and collaborative approaches. This style provides huge benefits to our clients by providing quick access to new ideas, hands-on experience and successful techniques used within other customer organisations. The benefits and outcomes of our support service offering are: a) Flexible commercial arrangements to suit your needs. b) Collaborative working style enables true partnership and trusted advisor relationships, including effective collaboration in multi-vendor environments. c) Modern work practices aligned with Agile, DevOps and other industry best practices. d) Cost-effective access to specialist consultants experienced in a variety of platforms and technology stacks.

Middleware New Zealand has assisted a wide range of government agencies and NGOs across our country. These engagements have included everything from guidance, strategic direction, planning and road mapping through to design, implementation, delivery and support of medium to large scale programmes. We specialise in complex integrations with a high identity and security requirement, including alignment with NZ Protective Security Requirements and the NZ Information Security Manual. Our extensive experience means that we have an intrinsic focus on protecting internal information assets, whether on-premise or in the cloud, as well as managing the complexities of delegated authority, application modernisation and mediated interactions with heritage systems. We are a trusted advisor to many of our clients, providing technology leadership, consulting services, coaching and mentoring. We also have a proven track record developing and implementing new development practices and pipeline automation in support of continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD). Having worked with (to name a few) DIA, NZ Police, NZ Customs Service, ACC, Ryman Healthcare, NZQA, MoE, Kiwibank, BNZ and ASB Bank, we are well versed in thinking about the customer's experience holistically, spanning multiple business processes and sector organisations in order to react, learn and improve service delivery for customers, as well as internal staff and partners. Our team of over 30 consultants have in depth experience in the technical implementation (e.g. Government, New Zealand banking, healthcare, airlines, energy companies) which informs and grounds our strategy, design and delivery approaches with practical and pragmatic experience and lessons learnt.
