Since 1997, Catalyst has been dedicated to using the world’s best open source software and tools to deliver robust IT solutions for our clients. We tailor open source solutions and make the hard stuff look easy, but we don't own the software, you do.

Our history

Catalyst began outsourced services with an application hosted on two servers for Plumbing World. From these small beginnings, Catalyst has grown to become New Zealand’s largest open source service provider.

Open source technologies have enabled Catalyst to design, build and host IT systems of national and international significance for organisations like Telecom New Zealand and Intel. Today, we provide open source solutions and services for a wide variety of organisations, including schools, universities, government departments, small businesses and major corporations.

We are dedicated to expanding our organisation through a commitment to the New Zealand marketplace.
