​This government agency safeguards New Zealand's significant and official data holdings.


With time critical decisions coming up amidst an evolving cloud first policy, and stringent security requirements, Stats NZ asked Pāua Interface for a technical and cloud assessment, action plan, and roadmap that would be approved by its senior leadership team.

In addition, jurisdiction risks and issues when using overseas companies to store and analyse data were not well-understood. Pāua Interface undertook a legal/tech risk analysis to ensure a there could be an acceptable balance between any constraints and opportunities.

The Pāua Interface senior team engaged with leaders, teams and stakeholders and delivered a solution that was approved by StatsNZ's Senior Leadership Team. Implementation of the plan began immediately.
