POSTPONED TO MARCH 2021 - Defence Information 2020 - Information-led Transformation

POSTPONED TO MARCH 2021 - Defence Information 2020 - Information-led Transformation

Wednesday 1st - Thursday 2nd April 2020

Location : STEAM Swindon

Time : 08:30 to 17:00

DI20 is not going ahead this year in line with recent Government guidance about gatherings due to the Covid-19 outbreak. DI20 will be ‘rebranded’ as DI21 and the provisional dates are the 24 and 25 March 2021.

Our joint MOD/Industry annual Defence Information Event (DI20) is on 1st and 2nd April at the GWR STEAM Conferencing, Swindon.  Book places for Delegates, Sponsoring and Exhibition Stands HERE

Attracting some 350 delegates, DI20 combines senior-level and subject-expert speakers, a selection of workshops, panel sessions, great exhibitor stands, a showcase for Good Practice, TD-Info Annual Awards for Collaboration and Innovation, our DI20 dinner at STEAM (optional) and plenty of excellent learning and networking opportunities throughout.

Our theme of Information-led Transformation relates to the significant transformational activity being undertaken by the MOD. Keynote Di20 speaker MOD CIO Charlie Forte said , “We acknowledge that there is a huge amount of transformation taking place, not just in D&IT but across the whole of Defence." (IISSue 12, July 2019)

He went on to explain the three basic aims across these transformation programmes are to: Mobilise, Modernise and Transform and that transformation is about providing Pan-Defence Capability, "to which D&IT Transformation is a key enabler as some of the MOD projects "unlock the ability for other functions to realise their own transformational ambitions. Read article in full here." Also, see MOD Report: Mobilising, Modernising & Transforming Defence: Modernising Defence Programme.

Industry's contributions are integral to delivery of MOD transformation; hence our DI20 Event will provide a valuable opportunity for MOD and Industry to come together as a collaborative 'Team Defence' community to hear the latest thinking on information-led transformation through keynote presentations from senior leaders and subject experts, interactive workshops and panel sessions. This will include insights into the latest developments in defence’s transformation programme and topics at the forefront of enabling ICT.

The annual DI Event attracts a wealth of exhibitors who are open to demonstrating and discussing capabilities, case studies and the ‘art of the possible’. Workshops enable more in-depth, interactive engagement whilst keynotes provide an opportunity for announcements, briefings and exploration of strategy, people, process and technology matters.

A Good Practice Market Place showcases the collaborative work of finalists for the TD-Info Excellence Award 2020 and there is a separate TD-Info Award for Innovation, both judged during the event and presented on Day 2. There is ample scope for ‘quality networking’, including the formal Event dinner (optional) held within the STEAM museum and amidst the trains!
