Defense

In defense, digital technology is now vital both to the smooth and efficient running of core functions like HR, finance, supply chain and logistics, and to achieving military superiority in the field.

Military communications, sensors, maintenance, and command and control (C2) are increasingly interconnected. Systems share data across land, sea, air, and now cyber domains. We help to secure this data with robust governance, while system efficacy is assured using scaled agile development methodologies.

Our solutions address key defense sector challenges around managing personnel in a digital world, equipment and support in theaters of war, operational superiority, and the transition to cloud. We apply intelligent and disruptive technologies, such as AI, edge computing and 5G, and we raise performance by applying data-driven insights.

Digital HR for defense

Recruiting, retaining, and training thousands of defense personnel annually is a huge task that is increasingly enabled by new technologies.

With growing volumes of young digital natives joining the armed forces, expectations for intuitive, ‘tell-me-once’ HR services are high. The global pandemic also accelerated the uptake of digital tools as physical recruitment centers closed and many HR processes moved online.

In this continually changing environment, we build secure architectures that help to safeguard both confidential personal information and national security. We support defense organizations in the selection, implementation, and operation of the right HR tools – from ERP to SaaS or custom developed applications – to give HR professionals a joined-up picture across highly specialized military capability suites. And we use automation to streamline HR processes, making them more efficient and accessible.

Military supply chains and logistics

Support functions add value by using information and insights to procure, deploy, and maintain the right equipment around the world

The scope of defense inventory management is huge. While it typically requires significant resources and time-consuming administrative tasks, new digital tools and automation are changing the game.

Our Logistics Assistance Using Robot Automation (LAURA) tool for the UK MOD, has expanded the MOD’s ability to define precise operational metrics, including the volume and type of items being processed.

Enabling intelligence-led military operations

Military superiority today rests on the effective use of real-time and contextually relevant data to inform decisions.

Cloud offers the opportunity to deploy new capabilities in the field quickly and efficiently, while overcoming the constraints posed by legacy systems.

We help clients define and implement cloud strategies, giving them fast, flexible, and resilient cloud services that also put them in control of their applications and data. We identify the most suitable environment for each workload within a hybrid, multi-cloud approach, depending on the level of security and sovereignty required to protect strategic national assets.

We are part of a consortium that has developed an AI platform for classified data. And we have forged exciting partnerships to extend our cloud expertise with next-generation cloud solutions built on secure, end-to-end cloud infrastructure services.

Modernizing and securing defense infrastructure

As defense organizations move away from legacy infrastructure to cloud platforms, decisions about sovereignty and cybersecurity are uppermost.
