In the Information Age, Defence relies on IT change and technology to protect the UK. Our Defence-specific expertise delivers sustainable, cost-efficient transformation at scale in this uniquely complex environment, where failure is not an option.

Technology transformation to support the Integrated Force of the future

Supporting the government’s vision for Defence in a competitive age is a vast undertaking. Technology leaders must prepare the ground today to defend against constantly changing threats, while safeguarding all in-flight operations.

No other sector deals with digital transformation across such a volatile network of geophysical, socio-political, professional and supply chain variables. IT change and solutions architecture must be cost-effective, robust, agile, accessible, and fully compatible across Single Services and global NATO partners.

IT legacies, budgetary constraints, fast-moving personnel, and evolving cyber threats all make the environment especially challenging. But success is imperative to safeguard the future of our nation.
