MoD guns for HP modernisation

ATLAS consortium will modernise the MoD's Defence Information Infrastructure.

By James Nunns

The UK’s Ministry of Defence is to use the ATLAS Consortium to enhance its users’ experience.

The group, which is a collaborative team led by HP and includes Fujitsu, Airbus and CGI, will aim to modernise the MoD’s Defence Information Infrastructure and transform its core services.

The selection of the group comes under the MoD’s GV1 Reset program, which will see the development of enterprise-wide information capabilities that are based upon HP Enterprise Services for Microsoft Office 365 and HP’s Helion Managed Private Cloud.

Mike Stone, Chief Digital and Information Officer of the MoD, said: "I want to deliver information capabilities that are a force multiplier for both the business space and battle space through closer strategic alignment with industry partners.

"By September 2016, our users will experience information capabilities that are tailored to their mission, location and role, and that can be accessed at the right time, through a choice of devices, over a cost-effective, modern and adaptable infrastructure."

The new workplace infrastructure that’s based on the HP technology will give users the ability to subscribe, amend or remove services through a persona-based catalogue.

The outcome of this will be a more transparent and cost effective system that gives the user more control.

Additional improvements will come from a standardised workplace management system, smart self-help and secure mobility services. This will allow MoD staff to access the DII through a wider variety of devices and networks.

Howard Hughes, senior vice president, Enterprise Services EMEA, HP, said: "Forward thinking organisations like the MoD understand that the workplace is everywhere."
