PUBLIC SECTOR IT IS UNDERGOING A PERIOD OF DRAMATIC CHANGE
Government is quite possibly the most complex environment in the UK, providing wide-ranging services to the entire population. With the increasing use of technology and a ‘digital by default’ position, the focus is on transforming public services safely, at pace and scale to enhance the relationship between both citizens and the state.
As one of the largest technology providers to the UK Central Government, BJSS works extensively with public sector organisations. We have deployed our Queen’s Award-winning delivery approach – Enterprise Agile, to help organisations including the Home Office, FCO, DVSA and Disclosure Scotland to transform the way they provide their services.
A powerful combination of Agile delivery methods, Open Source software and public Cloud technology
- For the Foreign and Commonwealth Office we delivered Crisis Hub, the first security-accredited public Cloud-hosted solution in the UK public sector, developed entirely using Open Source in the public Cloud. Crisis Hub provides FCO staff around the world with immediate access to crucial information during crises affecting UK citizens.
- For DVSA’s replacement of the MOT system, we helped introduce a next-generation service used by over 22,700 independent MOT vehicle testing centres and 88,000 unique users. To deliver the next-level of support and delivery flexibility required, we re-invented Cloud-hosted development and production environments. BJSS platform engineers work within delivery teams in our ISO 27001-compliant facility delivering and supporting a ground-breaking Cloud-hosted solution. Service levels and quality have increased dramatically, whilst costs and time implement changes are significantly reduced.
- For another government agency, BJSS delivered the first ever hosting of OFFICIAL SENSITIVE data in the public Cloud. The solution has been accredited by the Home Office and the Police to store Police data in AWS and integrate with Police systems.
INNOVATING FOR THE UK PUBLIC SECTOR
By encouraging the adoption of Open Source and Agile, the UK Government has been able to benefit from technologies that outperform their commercial alternatives while delivering dramatic cost-savings without compromising reliability or security. Once considered to be a follower, the UK Government is now very much the trendsetter. Government has leapfrogged the private sector.
