Areas Of Focus

Digital Backbone

The physical capacity (Cloud infrastructure, agile development strategy, cross service and Industry Access) to support a data driven, digitally enabled Defence environment and the Suitably Qualified or Experienced People within MOD and Industry to manage, maintain and improve it.

Business Modernisation for Support

Business Modernisation for Support (BMfS) brings together several key business change initiatives, e.g. Future IS, DefSCOR, PM&BI and F&RP. As such, it is responsible for introducing new ICT and implementing business change across the DSN. It aims to transform the legacy of fragmented applications, organisational structures and processes into an integrated environment by adopting an Enterprise Architecture approach, and to deliver Defence-wide Support metrics, optimised business processes and digital information services to drive effectiveness.

Digital Twin

A connected data representation of an entity, such as a physical asset, a process or system throughout its lifecycle.

Sustainability

Solutions that are affordable, support the Carbon Neutral targets and offer business resilience.

Innovation

Disruptive ideas and technologies that offer improvements and beneficial changes to capabilities and cultures with UK Defence.

Supply Chain Fragility

The barriers and threats to the UK Defence supply chain including cyber attack, business continuity and support in an uncertain environment and ensuring a broad and fair access to the Defence market for new/ SME suppliers.

Classified Collaboration

The ability for MOD and Industry to work on common platforms/ solutions that enables collaboration in document sharing, meetings, calls etc at OS classification and higher.

Forecast & Resource Planning

A change programme within Support Transformation that will improve the way Defence forecasts and resources its support requirements. It will provide Front Line Commands with better access to strategic data, which will allow them to make investment decisions based on affordability and risk. It will deliver both financial and non-financial benefits, including better processes and more widely available information.

Synthetic Environment for Support

The use of augmented reality, virtual reality and high fidelity models to create virtual training environments for Defence staff.

 

We are a not-for profit organisation that works collaboratively with our MOD, Industry and academic members to help modernise and transform Defence Support in the UK.

We target our activities and efforts around a number of “Areas of Focus” that are strategically important for UK Defence.

These strategic “Areas of Focus” are determined by the Defence Suppliers Forum (DSF) and our 3* Advisory Board which includes representatives from MOD Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S), MOD Defence Digital, MOD Defence Support, and our Industry Lead Sponsors on the Team Defence Information Council.
