BRINGING A LASTING LEGACY
We delivered enduring benefits to improve business-as-usual activity. Stricter control processes ensured efficient asset management continued into the future. Savings continued to be accrued and were further boosted as the new style of IT was fully implemented.
THE CLIENTS CHALLENGE
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) was transitioning to a new IT infrastructure.
This required developing new work methodologies and implementing efficiencies across the Defence estate, the most extensive IT infrastructure in Europe.

THE CHALLENGE CONTINUES
To accommodate the new ways of working, there was a clear need to reduce the size of the IT estate, accounts and assets, with reduction targets of 10% to 17%.
HOW WE HELPED
  • Multi-agency stakeholder engagement

    A team of IMD consultants engaged with Top Level Budget holders and Front Line Commands. We identified assets that were underused or no longer required. This enabled them to be annulled and recovered and to reduce the overall headcount. 

  • Comprehensive data analysis

    A team of IMD Consultants undertook a coordinated programme of business-critical initiatives, including multi-agency stakeholder engagement, comprehensive data analysis, refinement of asset and account policies.

  • New billing process

    We facilitate the implementation of a new billing process to ensure sustained efficiencies.

  • Implementing process improvement

    Our team Identified and implemented process improvement in monitoring and managing user accounts software, hardware, and obsolescence tracking.
