CGI has been selected by the Ministry of Defence to develop a new intelligence software application. The system will enable MOD to create a single, all-domain Intelligence Mission Management System that is fully integrated across the UK.             

Since 1976, CGI has become one of the largest independent IT and business consulting services firms in the world. With 77,000 consultants and other professionals across the globe, CGI delivers an end-to-end portfolio of capabilities, from strategic IT and business consulting to systems integration, managed IT and business process services and intellectual property solutions.

The firm’s digital expertise has also been of particular importance supporting initiatives across the aerospace, defence and space sectors. Exemplifying this, CGI has been delivering secure IT systems to the UK Ministry of Defence for over 40 years, most recently helping rapidly deliver the ability to send text messages containing Covid-19 advisory notifications to the MOD’s entire patient population, and establish near real-time statistical reports on the Covid-19 impact on its people.

MOD selects CGI for intelligence application

Now, as CGI continues its support of the MOD, it has been selected to develop a new Intelligence Requirements Management and Collection Management software application. The contract, which was awarded following an open tender, will see CGI help produce a solution to enable the client’s vision of a single all-domain Intelligence Mission Management System, which is fully integrated across the UK Defence Intelligence Enterprise, and with key allies. 

Si Read, Vice President for UK & Australia Secure Advisory Services at CGI, commented, “The solution will help accelerate the digital transformation of defence intelligence and unlock significant improvements, including more efficient ways of working and accelerated response times to key client intelligence needs.”

The new system will also look to improve the mechanisms for requesting, managing and processing intelligence requirements, by leveraging automation and machine learning. As a result, the solution is hoped to enhance the engagement of end-users in the intelligence cycle, streamline the workflow for requirements and collections staff, and improve the timely provision of information to those that need it.
