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.
