Specialist delivery of secure ICT

We are working with the MOD, and other large government departments, to deliver change through the use of cloud services.

Maintain the security that defence demands

The Ministry of Defence is on a digital transformation journey to deliver information advantage to the end user. New ways to generate, collaborate and share actionable intelligence and decision support can be derived from secure cloud capabilities.  The traditional ways of working – with inflexible, expensive, slow-to-change contracts and infrastructure – are becoming a thing of the past.

The speed of change in the information domain means that Defence must deliver services more quickly and more efficiently, and be more connected than ever before, whilst maintaining security controls.

Assured cloud computing services

We have built an enduring partnership with Defence, providing true cloud services that are connected, transparent, elastic, secure and easy to use.

By choosing UKCloud, you can reduce the cost and risk associated with building and maintaining IT infrastructure. Our platform is inherently evergreen, so you never have to worry about technology obsolescence or capacity constraints. The platform is delivered as a service, so you can switch from CAPEX to an OPEX-based charging model. Unlike global proprietary PaaS and SaaS solutions, however, UKCloud is an open platform, so you’re never locked in. We know too that you won’t be ready to abandon all the systems you use today. That’s why our platform uses familiar technologies, enabling you to host your current applications and continue to benefit from existing capabilities.

Deliver better service to citizens

Together with our Partners we can deliver the secure solutions that are needed to deliver critical services to the defence community in a more agile and cost-effective manner.

Using our experience of providing assured cloud solutions to other government departments such as the Ministry of Justice, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs and the Home Office, UKCloud is in a strong position to help MOD with its own transformation programme, most notably with Defence as a Platform, which demands universal access, evergreen services and avoidance of vendor lock-in.
