I'm delighted to say that the Digital Policing Transformation being led by The Metropolitan Police and supported by IndigoBlue has been shortlisted for a Digital Technology Leaders Award in the category Security Project of the Year.
These awards, run by Computing, recognise the achievements of the companies and individuals who are really making it happen at the coal face of the digital technology stack.
The Metropolitan Police (known as the Met) is driving forward a digital transformation of the systems and services used by its staff and officers. The vision of the transformation is to dispense with the officers’ paper notebook and provide them with secure, connected digital applications and services that reduce their desk-bound duties and give them more time on the beat, serving London’s communities.
In the last year, the seeds sown to date during the transformation have come to fruition with the launch of an array of highly secure services that are revolutionising the work of London’s police officers and saving taxpayers millions of pounds.
With IndigoBlue’s support, the Met’s DevOps team has built a hugely resilient infrastructure to the most exacting security standards. Everything is automated – including deployment, provisioning, backups, installations, configurations and testing – with fine granular control that allows changes to be implemented within the infrastructure without any service downtime. In this way, the Met benefits from the 24/7 service availability that it requires.
We look forward to the award announcements on 4 July – the very best of luck to all the other shortlisted nominees!
