About Inde

Inde Technology is a sharp, dynamic New Zealand tech company with an impressive portfolio of top-tier clients. We specialise in cloud-first enterprise technology solutions and focus on keeping our scope of service to our core competencies to maintain premium knowledge.

Working with us
Our unique engagement-first business model means our senior engineers & business partners work directly with our customers to ensure a strong, effective relationship between their business objectives and our transformative services. Our aim is to complement our customers’ businesses by providing consulting, solutions, tier 3 and 24 x 7 support.
We approach each project or problem focused on the customer outcome. Our role is to design the right solution tailored to each customer; we don’t incentivise our staff on sales or customer acquisition.

We recently asked our customers ‘What makes Inde different from our competitors?’

Our team
Our team is growing as business continues to gain momentum; we were named in the 2017 and 2018 Deloitte Fast 50 as one of NZ’s fastest growing companies.
Inde has a unique flat structure in which consulting engineers lead technical competencies and customer relationships. This allows direct engagement between our customers and our staff with the skills to design and implement the solutions they need.

Our Focus
At Inde our goal from the outset was to be the best in our field. Our specialist knowledge, selective recruitment and focus on continual development of the skills within our team allow us to compete with the biggest tech companies in NZ.
Our core competencies are built on significant solution experience and product knowledge. These include:
• Cloud (Strategy, Migration and Solutions)
• Application Delivery (Security, Availability and Acceleration)
• Enterprise Networking
We only offer specialised services and don’t provide hosted infrastructure or 1st-2nd level service desk.

Our customers come from enterprise, tertiary, health and utility sectors. Working closely with customers within each of these sectors allows us a broad view of how new technologies perform and compare when applied in real-world operation across a range of sensitive and even critical situations.

Leadership Team

Technology Strategist
Dave has close to 20 years in IT having split this time between technical and leadership roles. He enjoys looking at the ‘big picture’ when it comes to business and customer solutions.
Back on the tools he is now focused on applying his executive CIO experience and technical knowledge to achieve great outcomes for Kiwi businesses. He has steered Inde from a start-up to taking on the large corporates in New Zealand in just a couple of years. Dave is always up for a challenge; among his recent projects was the successful migration of more than 2500 Harcourts staff to Microsoft Office 365 from a variety of systems and solutions, at 200 sites around the country – one of the largest and most complex projects of its kind in New Zealand.
When he’s not at work you’ll find him planning DIY projects and playing sports with his partner and three young children.

Network Architect
Mike applies the same logic to aerobatics as he does to designing complex IT systems; precision and focus are key. After a farming upbringing, Mike chose IT at age 20 and never looked back. Mike has a varied background in IT service and delivery spanning more than 15 years including infrastructure management, consultancy and engineering; he brings a broad range of skills and knowledge to the Inde team.
One of Mike’s largest projects to date was a multi-million-dollar technology review at a high-powered dairy processing plant assessing all aspects of the network at a detailed level throughout the IT and OT systems.
When not working with customers, Mike enjoys travelling with his partner, playing in his band, and flipping a Yak 52 aeroplane on weekends.

EUC Architect
Ralf is a relatively new face at Inde, bringing with him 20 years’ experience in IT both in New Zealand and in Holland. With a working history including outdoor education and high school PE teaching, Ralf brings passion and enthusiasm to everything he does. He found his calling in IT and is directing that passion into being an expert working in the ‘workspaces of tomorrow’ and finding the best end user compute solutions for his customers. Ralf enjoys the challenge of making complex systems understandable in plain English and can often be seen in front of a whiteboard helping bring clarity to customers. During his career in NZ over the last 12 years Ralf has designed & implemented Application & Desktop delivery (EUC) solutions for a wide range of customers including some of our biggest private enterprises and government agencies.
When he’s not thinking about the future of business tech systems Ralf spends his time adventuring outdoors or camping with his wife and three young children.

Cloud Architect
Rik is always going the extra mile to find the right solution for every customer. With over 13 years of technical experience in the IT industry, Rik is well versed in finding solutions for large organisations to design and enhance multi-tiered distribution applications and underlying infrastructure. A Citrix MVP and 2017 Microsoft Partner finalist, Rik has proven his capability working with teams both at executive level and at a deep technical level from planning to implementation and beyond.
Sky Television, Ryman Healthcare and St Georges Hospital are three of the many organisations that have benefited from Rik’s expertise.
Outside of work Rik is a keen hockey player and film maker and has recently welcomed his first child with wife Bridget.

Network and Infrastructure Architect
Simon has extensive experience in both IT and business leadership around the world. Highlights include running the network for the largest e-commerce company in France and deploying real-time trading platforms into banks throughout the Asia-Pacific area while working in Australia.
Simon’s experience and skills are invaluable within the Inde team; he is able to design solutions and lead projects working with our talented engineers to deliver these to our customers.
Christchurch International Airport benefited from his expertise in 2016 when he led a project to design and implement an entire system overhaul. The operation coincided with a record year for the airport – 6.31 million passengers passing through – without a single unplanned disruption to delay operations. Simon thrives on a challenge and demands the best outcomes for customers.
When Simon isn’t working he enjoys the great outdoors, crashing mountain bikes, camping and travelling with his wife and three young boys.
