A secure digital platform for MoD agencies and industry partners
UKCloudX is designed to accelerate the outcomes set out in the Defence Information Strategy and Defence Hosting Strategy. Our High Assurance platform is hosted in the same UK facilities already trusted by the MoD and is supported by a number of Prime Contractors, System Integrators and other solution providers that have strong heritage in providing solutions to support the Defence community.
The vision at the heart of the Defence Information Strategy (DIS) is to deliver information capabilities to defence that act as a ‘force multiplier’.
To realise that vision, the entire defence community — from the MOD and armed forces to suppliers and exporters of defence technology and services — needs the ability to access and share information.
Until now, that’s been challenging. IT systems have traditionally been deployed in silos. Data repositories have been disconnected from each other. So organisational boundaries have remained in place, limiting access to information and hampering effective collaboration.
“Combining UKCloudX’s secure, cost-effective platform with IBM’s specialist skills and services in the defence and national security sector, will provide real value for our clients.”
