London, April 10, 2019 – Capgemini has today announced a five-year contract with BAE Systems Maritime-Submarines, the branch of the British defence, security, and aerospace company responsible for the design and manufacture of submarines. Under the terms of the deal, Capgemini in the UK will take over the provision of a broad spectrum of IT services, including service orchestration, networking, hosting, end-user computing, DevOps, reporting and analytics, automation, and a digital service desk.
BAE Systems and Capgemini will begin a new partnership to transform the Submarines business IT delivery, allowing the company to take advantage of innovative digital technologies, create better user experiences, ensure high service availability, and reduce the cost of IT.
From its base in Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, BAE Systems Submarines is working on two major submarine programmes. In this high-pressure environment and with increasing demands from the business and its digitally enabled workforce, Capgemini’s IT solution was selected because of its ability to support the company’s evolving requirements. These include the need to further enhance the responsiveness of the IT service, and effectiveness and agility of the delivery model, as well as supporting an increasingly mobile workforce.
Stephen Cole, CIO at BAE Systems Submarines, commented: “As we embarked on this critical programme for our Submarines business that will deliver improved agile digital services, world-class service transformation and orchestration capabilities underpinned by very strong references were essential in our selection process. We are confident that Capgemini met these requirements and is the right partner for us. The team really understands where we are trying to get to as a business and its collaborative approach alongside its commitment to developing skills in the local area were paramount to our decision.”
Paul Margetts, Managing Director, UK Business Unit at Capgemini, commented: “We are delighted to expand upon our business relationship with BAE Systems. Having worked with the company over the past four years, we have seen the tremendous opportunities for change that this programme presents and are hugely excited to be part of the journey at BAE Systems Maritime-Submarines, to help the company make a step change and satisfy new business requirements. We also look forward to increasing our involvement with the local North West community and Barrow in particular.”
The service goes live on 21 May 2019.
