Catalyst IT has a long-held commitment to free and open standards and technologies.

After some 10 years we are now the largest New Zealand owned company specialising in open source development and services. During this time we have established an impressive track record for successfully delivering, hosting and maintaining large-scale systems using open technology:

  • InternetNZ – System to manage the .nz domain registration space
  • Telecom NZ – a range of mobile services using open standards
  • Electoral Enrolment Centre – the Electoral Roll Management System
  • New Zealand Press Association – multiple applications and sites supporting their online news services
  • Rolling out Linux desktops to two large NZ organisations.
