The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has signed tech consultancy Tisski on a two-year, £7.6 million contract to help optimise and automate key business processes.
The company will provide a service including business process analysis, concept development, production, training, live support and consultancy.
This will focus on streamlining activities using the MoD’s exiting Microsoft software, including Dynamics 365, Power Platform with Power Apps, Power BI, Power Automate and Power Virtual Agent. This will be combined with other technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA).
It will also involve Tisski’s automation devsecops team working with the Defence Agile Software House, the MoD’s internal innovation centre.
Brigadier Sara Sharkey, head of application services and devops at Defence Digital at the MoD, said: ““This innovative programme of digitisation and automation will quickly deliver substantial and sustained benefits across the MoD and its workforce.
“New solutions can be conceived, developed and implemented at breakneck speed without compromising quality, security or usability.
“Our work within the Defence Agile Software House is already having a significant impact on the defence modernisation agenda, we are at the forefront of delivering application development and cloud hosting services which are tailored solutions, developed by defence for defence.“
Tisski has previously led the creation of a Centre of Enablement under a £5.3 million contract to develop solutions including a capability and acquisition management system (CAMS) and digital approvals tool (DAT). CAMS automates the approval of interdepartmental agreements that span multiple business areas of the MoD.
