Matt Aldiss

Director | lead consultant

SpecArc is the brainchild of Matt Aldiss, an IT professional with an in-depth understanding of what business and government need from an IT consultancy.

Starting out as a software developer, Matt went on to consult for large multinationals, Kiwi business, tertiary institutes and government agencies. He’s managed significant IT projects and held senior management positions within large IT firms and the public sector.

He’s deeply knowledgeable about IT architecture (and enterprise architecture, particularly). He’s drafted IT roadmaps, advised senior management and governance boards, run workshops on the fundamentals of IT architecture practice and facilitated large-scale projects involving the integration of organisational IT and business networks. That’s a tiny snapshot of what he’s achieved.

After nearly 30 years in senior management, technical and project management roles, Matt believes it’s time to offer the Wellington market a high-end boutique IT consultancy that does things a bit differently; that adds value in a different way. He believes it’s time to offer New Zealand’s capital city an IT consultancy firm that’s independent, no-nonsense, collaborative, holistic, insightful and proven. That’s what SpecArc is all about.


Our advice is 100 percent independent. We’re not swayed by trends and we do our research. We’ll only ever give you our honest, expert advice on the technology solution that’s right for you.


As IT consultants, we focus on the things that matter – your outcomes and your bottom line. We’re driven to deliver results on time, to budget and within scope – without fuss.


Our IT consultancy team have the skills and experience to partner with senior executives at the board governance level. We’ll roll up our sleeves and work at the operational coalface too.


We look at all aspects of an organisation before we settle on the right IT solution. We prioritise people and what they do over processes and tools. We collaborate. We’re flexible and responsive.


As independent outsiders, we’re unafraid to take an honest look at a situation – and report back to you with clarity and insight.


We have a strong track record for delivering high-quality IT consultancy services to business and government clients. We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved.
