Can implementing a unified technology platform eliminate barriers?
Accelerating digital adoption and fortifying capabilities through one of the largest digital transformation programs underway in Australia.
The Australian Defence Force (Defence) is transforming its military support operations into a connected, unified enterprise to support the operation of a modern military and protect Australia’s national interest. Linked to the findings of the Australian Government’s First Principles Review, it is recognized that Defence’s current systems, organizational model and processes are often complicated, slow and inefficient in an environment requiring speed and agility. This was limiting interoperability, leaving compliance risks, duplicating effort and causing inefficient use of resources.
Defence seized the opportunity to deploy a digital transformation – with the goal of breaking down siloes and barriers to adopt a “One Defence” philosophy as the cornerstone. At the center of this transformation, is an upgrade to a next-level Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. Supplanting hundreds of disparate software applications, along with thousands of related supporting processes, such an implementation would require Defence to embrace new ways of thinking and working. The vision was clear: Defence would leverage the opportunity to elevate, engage and empower its personnel to become continuously change-capable, a critical skill and a competitive advantage for one of the world’s most powerful military forces.
