The body of experience we have built up means we understand the needs of the armed forces.
In an uncertain world, citizens demand a safe and secure environment within which they are empowered to live their lives, free from ever-pervasive external threats. Meeting this expectation, we have supplied IT services and solutions to the Ministry of Defence and Intelligence Services for the last 40 years. This includes everything from training, mission planning and logistics to infrastructure, workplace and cyber services, whether within offices, embassies and recruitment centres or on the front line. The body of experience we have built up means we understand the needs of the armed forces.
DXC Technology Defence comprises people who truly understand the sector. Many of our team are ex-military, some work on military bases throughout the UK and others are deployed on operations in direct support of the armed forces. We understand that real-time, accurate, secure and usable information is vital to the defence sector. It provides an essential tactical or strategic advantage. Providing the right information to officers, ranks and civilian staff is our goal, enabling them to act quickly and safely and fulfill their tasks effectively. DXC Technology provides the services, technology and advice to enable NATO and coalition information sharing across the world, quickly and securely, at all security levels.
Building on the Defence Information Infrastructure (DII), we have worked with the UK MOD on one of the largest and most advanced government transformation programmes on the planet, culminating with the creation of MODNET. With MODNET we are now transitioning to a new style of IT with a new standardised workplace built on a modern cloud-based IT platform and Microsoft Office 365 services. Building a hybrid IT solution, we will deliver secure, highly available private clouds across different security domains, providing capability, leveraging class-leading automation, and allowing the orchestration of public, private and traditional IT services from Base to Deployed.
DXC Technology is also responsible for military HR functions for around 900,000 active and retired members of the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and British Army. Military personnel and Veterans UK rely on us to deliver salary and pension payments, back-office functions and staffing of the enquiry centre that handles around 25,000 calls a month from service personnel. The Joint Personnel Administration (JPA) system is amongst the largest, most complex HR and payroll systems in Europe. Based on Oracle’s E-Business Suite, JPA provides personnel administration processes and HR application services for the British armed forces worldwide, supporting payments, operational deployments and all of the real-time functions vital for running a modern fighting force.
