Key Features of Takiwā
A Partnership Approach

We work with experts in our target sectors to help empower organisations and communities to build their own capability and capacity. Our vision is scientists, policy makers, community leaders and stakeholders having the ability to see the same picture and agree a way forward where everyone can contribute.

Leading Edge Tech

A scalable, multi-tenanted spatial analytics engine, translating big complex data-sets into simple, understandable visualisations and business intelligence. Takiwā applications are currently collecting data from an incredibly broad range of sources, from in-lake sensors to large Government data sets. Backed by an organisation committed to investing in ongoing research and development.

Deep Insights Faster

Takiwā delivers deeper insights faster by presenting complex information in simple ways, providing users with spatial, temporal and analytic views of data. It also provides the ability to monitor progress in real-time and report on the fly.

Secure and Stable

The data processed through Takiwā applications is often sensitive and valuable, so we put a premium on the security and robustness of our platforms. Partnering with IBM has enabled us to achieve a gold standard in this area, acceptable to risk averse organisations with tight requirements around data protection and data sovereignty.

About Us

Mike Taitoko


Mike drives the strategy and operations of Takiwā

Mike is of Maniapoto descent is a leading specialist in the field of Māori and indigenous economic development. He previously founded Tuia Consulting, a leading Māori economic development advisory firm in New Zealand and the Pacific. During that time Mike built an economic benchmarking tool which led to the creation of an online analytical processing platform. The idea was to use data to drive better visibility across the policy space and improve policy outcomes in areas that need it most. And it worked! So Mike formed Takiwā to build innovative tools and technologies that drive transformational change in areas that most impact Māori and indigenous people globally - improving outcomes in health, education, culture and identity, social and environmental wellbeing and economic development.
