Defence Information 2017 is the major annual communications event of Joint Information Group activities (the JIG reports to the Defence Suppliers Forum) and the Event’s content spans both Information and Support. It takes place on the 26-27 April 2017. It is jointly presented by the UKCeB, MoD and Cranfield University. The event examines some of the ‘people, process and technology’ issues critical to Team Defence being able to adopt, embed and exploit new (and often disruptive) Information and Communications Technology (ICT) capabilities and associated new ways of working – to productive effect.
The two days include: keynote presentations, panels where the audience question and contribute to the debate, choices of workshops which delve into ‘Delivery’ using case studies and experiences from recent JIG projects, a Good Practice Market Place where defence teams share their experiences on innovative and collaborative Team Defence projects, trade stands where suppliers demonstrate innovative applications and opportunities for networking with peers both from MOD and Industry.
Our CTO, Dr Simon Wiseman and Danny Wootton from MoD ISS Innovation Strategy are jointly running a workshop which will discuss alternative approaches of how to achieve a modern 21st Century User Experience across multiple end user devices whilst maintaining the level of security required by MoD.
We will also be hosting an exhibition stand so if you are registered to attend DI’17 be sure to say hello to Dave Brassington and Colin Nash who are our stand team.
