Welcome to ope.nz, the website of Trevor Hart, independent GIS/IT Solution Architect.

An unashamed technology geek, I am a GIS/IT Solution Architect focusing on Esri, Microsoft and Cloud technologies. Depending on my engagement, I can provide end to end planning, solution architecture, infrastructure capacity planning and implementation services across New Zealand.

I have extensive IT technical skills specializing in architecting bespoke solutions, deploying enterprise applications, designing relational databases, software development lifecycles, business intelligence, data analysis and geographic information systems (GIS). I am passionate about technology and have been involved in delivering successful customer outcomes as a trusted advisor, technical consultant and solution architect.

With the maturity of cloud and rising adoption rate I have been involved in on premise to cloud migrations as well as green field cloud deployments using platforms such as IBM, Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

To complement my technical knowledge, I also have a broad range of soft skills including project management, team leadership and business analysis.

In 2017 I was awarded the "Professional of the Year Award" award by the New Zealand Spatial Excellence Awards (NZSEA). NZSEA celebrates the achievements of top spatial information organisations and individuals.

I am TOGAF 9 certified (Level 2), have achieved ITIL 2011 Foundation and am a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) for SQL Server.
